Gingrich: 'No Idea' What Trump Meant By Tweet Appearing To Confirm Probe

Sekulow admitted not knowing whether Trump was under investigation, saying he had not heard about an investigation and said it was unfair for him to be questioned about speculation.

Sekulow, on one of four scheduled appearances on Sunday political talk shows, several times insisted the president was referring to a news report about an investigation, not an actual probe.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said on Sunday that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential race, adding that the president has not received any notification that he is being investigated.

Last week, Trump sent a tweet referring to being the victim of a "witch hunt".

Speaking on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday morning, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told interviewers that Trump and his legal team want to "take down" Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump's tweets following the report appeared to confirm the investigation, but his lawyer said it only appeared that way because of the character limit on Twitter. Rubio says it's important for the American people to know how the Russians interfered because we have more elections coming up.

The president has publicly lamented the Russian Federation probe in recent tweets, calling it a "witch hunt" in various tweets.

"Witch hunt' is how Trump characterizes the probe into Russia's election interference and possible ties to his campaign associates".

"So the president said "I am under investigation" even though he's isn't under investigation?"

'I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! "The President's response was as it related to the Washington Post report".

A top member of Donald Trump's legal team has repeatedly claimed the president is not under investigation - despite the commander-in-chief himself tweeting that he is.
