Jay Sekulow, a member of President Donald Trump’s legal team, was a guest on various television networks Sunday morning. In addressing the recent Washington Post report that the president is under investigation, Sekulow repeated a consistent theme on each program: “The president is not under investigation.”

Many immediately pointed out that the denial by Sekulow seems to run contrary to a tweet by the president on Friday.
I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt

And here is Sekulow addressing the tweet with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Tapper: "The president said 'I am under investigation,' even though he ISN'T under investigation?" Sekulow says… https://t.co/zYgRXGQlL5

This is a laughably pathetic argument to make. Even for Sekulow. https://t.co/9sxjxmZEGW

Is Trump under investigation? No one seems to know, but we are likely to have another week of “sourced” media reports, tweets from the president and posturing by every elected official who can find a microphone.
