"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" President Trump tweeted Friday, but Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said Sunday that is not the case. "If the president is innocent, why is he afraid of this investigation?" asked NBC's Chuck Todd in a Meet the Press interview. "He's not afraid of this investigation. There is no investigation," Sekulow replied, adding, "There is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period." Sekulow made similar arguments in another Sunday interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, claiming Trump tweeted only in response to a "fake" Washington Post article reporting Special Counsel Robert Mueller had expanded his investigation.
