Department of Justice-appointed Special CounselRobert Mueller is conducting what is generally called a preliminary inquiry into possible obstruction of justice involving President Donald Trump, as it pertains to his broader investigation into Russian meddling in the USA presidential election.
On CNN's "New Day", Sekulow argued that the president was not under investigation, despite his tweet and the Postreport, because the White House hadn't been told that was the case. "Most special prosecutors involved in this type of litigation would have avoided as much as possible people with political ties or contributions." he added, "When you're investigating the president of the United States, you should be trying to avoid any questions of political bias or influence".
"That has been the case now for almost a year", Carson continued.
Mueller declined comment as he left the meeting Tuesday.
After President Donald Trumpposted a cryptic tweet about tapes of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey, the words on everyone's lips at the White House lately are, "Where are the tapes?"
"Witch hunt" has become Trump's preferred phrase to dismiss the probe into Russian election interference. "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!"
Sekulow also defended Trump's use of social media, saying he does not tell him what to write or not write, after the president last week tweeted that he was under investigation for firing Comey.

U.S. President Donald Trump leads a rally marking his first 100 days in office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. "This whole thing stinks". Comey has gone on record saying that the reason for his dismissal was his refusal to accede to the President's request for him to drop the Russian Federation investigation.
At best, it could further complicate Trump's efforts to pass a meaningful legislative agenda and ultimately his hopes of a successful presidency.
"He's being investigated for taking that the action the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency that recommended the determination", Sekulowsaid. Comey did tell Trump he was not personally under investigation, but that was before the director was sacked.
Jay Sekulow, told "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd "The president is not under investigation by the special counsel".
Yes, Trump abhors the selective leaks that have poured out of these investigations; he resents the false narrative that has been spun based on mere innuendo and often on inaccurate and sloppy reporting; and he strongly and rightly defends himself and his closest advisors from baseless accusations.
These investigations are focused upon the alleged links with Russians that some people in Trump's campaign team maintained before the elections. Moreover, he used an Federal Bureau of Investigation computer to create a memo of an incident that took place within his scope of work, which involved a meeting with the president and the conversation that transpired between the then-acting director and the nation's chief executive.
