My agenda is moving ahead despite distraction of 'Witch Hunt'

Donald Trump is not under investigation for obstruction of justice, one of his lawyers said Sunday, despite the U.S. president's recent tweets that seem to indicate he is.

Regarding President Trump's tweet as reported in the June 16 front-page article "Trump decries Mueller probe ": How much richer can this get? "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!" he also said in a tweet that day.

The president didn't clarify what exactly he was referring to in the early morning tweet, however he has frequently described reports about possible ties between members of his campaign and Russian Federation as a "witch hunt".

On Sunday, Trump again referred to the probe, but dismissed it as a "distraction".

Trump mentioned the "distraction of the Witch Hunt" again in a Sunday morning post.

Sekulow said his legal team had not received notice of any probe into Trump. His advisers describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy. Putting aside the 17th-century Salem witch trials, our new president seems to ignore the McCarthy witch hunt of the early 1950s.

Fellow panelist Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, estimated that investigators are just 20 percent into their probe, which could last for months. Trump is accused of firing FBI director James Comey over his refusal to steer the Russian Federation investigation away from former national security adviser and Trump ally Mike Flynn.

"This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses".

Trump returned to the White House on Sunday after spending Father s Day weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat.
