Trump's lawyer waves off concerns about Trump Jr.'s Russia meeting

President Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, fiercely maintained Wednesday that his client is not being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and that the president was uninvolved in his son's questionable meeting with a Kremlin source for dirt on Clinton. Contrary to Sekulow's claims, though, officials have said the special counsel is in fact investigating Trump, for possible obstruction of justice.

Speaking with Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos, Sekulow said Trump knew nothing about the email exchange released by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday. "The president was not at the meeting, was not aware of the meeting, did not participate in the meeting, and as I said, was made aware of the email exchange when it was released yesterday," Sekulow said. "He was briefed on it earlier by his legal team, but very recently."

Sekulow added that "the president is not under investigation by the special counsel," prompting Stephanopoulos to correct him. "I'm not sure about that," Stephanopoulos said, "but we'll have to leave it for another day." Jeva Lange
