TO FIRE THE FBI DIRECTOR. WITCH HUNT.” I’M JOINED NOW BY A MEMBER OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S LEGAL TERM JAY SEKULA, CHIEF COUNSEL FROM THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY.>>GOOD TO SEE YOU. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO YOU, JAKE.>>THANK YOU. SHOULD WE TAKE THAT TWEET FROM THE PRESIDENT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS UNDER INVESTIGATION IN.>>LET ME BE CLEAR THE PRESIDENT IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION AS JAMES COMEY SAID IN HIS TESTIMONY THE PRESIDENT WAS NOT THE TARGET OF INVESTIGATION ON THREE DIFFERENT OCCASIONS. THE PRESIDENT IS NOT A SUBJECT OR TARGET OF AN INVESTIGATION. THAT TWEET WAS IN RESPONSE TO A “WASHINGTON POST” STORY THAT RAN WITH FIVE UNNAMED SOURCES WITHOUT IDENTIFYING THE AGENCIES THEY REPRESENTED SAYING THAT THE SPECIAL COUNSEL HAD BROADENED OUT HIS INVESTIGATION TO INCLUDE THE PRESIDENT. WE’VE HAD NO INDICATION OF THAT. THE PRESIDENT WAS RESPONDING TO THAT PARTICULAR STATEMENT FROM “THE WASHINGTON POST” AGAIN WITH FIVE ANONYMOUS SOURCES AND AGAIN, WITHOUT IDENTIFYING THE AGENCY SO NO THE PRESIDENT IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION AND HAS NOT BEEN.>>SO THE PRESIDENT SAID “I AM UNDER INVESTIGATION EVEN THOUGH HE ISN’T UNDER INVESTIGATION”?>>THAT RESPONSE ON SOCIAL MEDIA WAS IN RESPONSE TO “THE WASHINGTON POST” PIECE. IT’S THAT SIMPLE. THE PRESIDENT IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION.>>WELL, I WISH IT WERE THAT SIMPLE BUT WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, THE PRESIDENT SAID “I AM BEING INVESTIGATED” IN A TWEET, AND PEOPLE TAKE HIS WORD ON THAT.>>YES.>>BUT YOU’RE HIS ATTORNEY, YOU’RE SAYING THAT THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE SAID THAT WAS NOT ACCURATE.>>NO, THE PRESIDENT WAS — IT WAS 141 CHARACTERS, THERE’S A LIMITATION ON TWITTER AS WE ALL KNOW AND THE IF PRESIDENT HAS AN EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION OF SOCIAL MEDIA. THE PRESIDENT ISSUED THAT TWEET, THAT SOCIAL MEDIA STATEMENT BASED ON A FAKE REPORT, A REPORT WITH NO DOCUMENTED SOURCES FROM “THE WASHINGTON POST.” AND I WANT TO FOCUS OEN THAT FOR ONE MOMENT. ISN’T IT IRONIC A LEAK WOULD TAKE PLACE BY FIVE ANONYMOUS SOURCES SAYING THE SPECIAL COUNSEL HAD INCREASED THE SCOPE OF THEIR INVESTIGATION AND THEY DON’T IDENTIFY THE AGENCIES UPON WHICH THOSE INDIVIDUALS WERE SPEAKING. SO THE PRESIDENT RESPONSE, I WANT TO BE CRYSTAL CLEAR HERE, THE PRESIDENT’S RESPONSE WAS AS IT RELATED TO “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORT. HE CANNOT, IN A TWITTER STATEMENT, INCLUDE ALL OF THAT IN THERE, BUT “THE WASHINGTON POST” STATEMENT CAME OUT THAT MORNING.>>SO THE PRESIDENT — >>SO THERE SHOULD BE NO CONFUSION, THE PRESIDENT IS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION.>>BUT IT IS CONFUSING, BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT SAID “I AM BEING INVESTIGATED” AND YOU’RE SAYING THAT “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORT IS WRONG, BUT NO ONE DID MORE TO CONFIRM “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORT THAN THE PRESIDENT. I MEAN, CNN HAD NOT CONFIRMED “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORT BUT THEN PRESIDENT TRUMP CAME OUT AND SAID “I AM BEING INVESTIGATED.” SO THE CONFUSION — >>RIGHT.>>IS THIS NOT FRUSTRATING FOR YOU AS AN ATTORNEY TO HAVE A CLIENT THAT IS SHARING INFORMATION WITH THE WORLD THAT’S NOT ACCURATE?>>LOOK, THIS IS A PRESIDENT THAT HAS OUT LITZED SOCIAL MEDIA, THAT HAS REVOLUTIONIZED THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF ELECTIONEERING WHEN IT COMES TO THE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA. HE’S ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH 107 MILLION PEOPLE ON HIS VARIOUS SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS ON A REGULAR BASIS AS HE NEEDS TO. HE CAN DIRECTLY REACH A LOT OF PEOPLE. THAT STATEMENT AGAIN WAS IN RESPONSE TO “THE WASHINGTON POST.” SO LET ME BE CLEAR. “THE WASHINGTON POST” STORY WAS BASED ON FIVE ANONYMOUS SOURCES, DOESN’T EVEN IDENTIFY THE AGENCY. SO THAT’S IT. SIMPLE EXPLANATION.>>OKAY, I MEAN, I DON’T THINK IT’S SIMPLE BUT I DON’T THINK WE’RE GETTING ANYWHERE. LET ME MOVE ON. FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH A CLOSE TRUMP ALLY SPOKE ON FRIDAY AT THE NATIONAL PRESS CLUB. LET’S RUN A CLIP OF WHAT HE SAID.>>THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES CANNOT OBSTRUCT JUSTICE. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE YOUUNITED STATES. IF HE WANTS TO FIRE THE FBI DIRECTOR ALL HE HAS TO DO IS FIRE HIM.>>WE’LL IGNORE WHEN GINGRICH WAS SPOOERKER OF THE HOUSE HE VOTEDED TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT CLINTON FOR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. LET’S MOVE ON TO TODAY, IS IT THE POSITION OF THE TRUMP LEGAL TEAM THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES CANNOT OBSTRUCT JUSTICE BECAUSE HE’S THE EXECUTIVE, HE CAN FIRE ANYONE IN THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH UNDER THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH?>>LOOK, YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT’S CALLED THE CONSTITUTIONAL THRESHOLD QUESTION, AND THAT IS, CAN A PRESIDENT WHO HAS A CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TAKE A CERTAIN ACTION, THEN BE PROSECUTED FOR TAKING THE ACTION, AND IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE YOU HAD A SCENARIO WHERE THE PRESIDENT RECEIVING ADVICE FROM A VARIETY OF HIS GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, WAS TOLD BY HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL AND BY HIS DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL JAMES COMEY SHOULD NOT BE LEADING THE FBI. IT’S IRONIC BASED ON THE ACTION THEY RECOMMENDED AND THAT HE TOOK IN CONSULTATION WITH OTHERS HE’S NOW BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE AGENCIES THAT TOLD HIM TO TAKE THAT VERY ACTION, REMOVING THE FBI DIRECTOR. SO THIS IDEA, THIS IS THE THRESHOLD CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE THAT HAS TO BE ACRESSED BEFORE ANYTHING STARTS. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT INVESTIGATIONS BEFORE YOU CAN GET TO INVESTIGATION, YOU GOT TO DETERMINE DOES THE CONSTITUTION ALLOW FOR A PROSECUTION OR AN INVESTIGATION EVEN OF THIS TYPE OF MATTER, AND THERE’S BEEN MEMORANDUMS GOING BACK TO THE OFFICE OF LEGAL COUNSEL IN THE 1970s, IN THE 2000s BUT ALSO THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPT WITHIN THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF SO I THINK THE CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE HERE IS RAISED FIRST, IF THERE IS AN INVESTIGATION, RIGHT NOW THERE’S NOT, YOU WOULD OF COURSE RAISE THE CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES, ANY LAWYER ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT DO AT THE SUPREME CORPORATE OF THE YOU STATE LIKE I DO, YOU RAISE THE CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE THRESHOLD, NUMBER ONE.>>WELL, JUST AS A POINT OF FACT, PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ALREADY ADMITTED HE’D ALREADY MADE HIS DECISION LONG BEFORE ROD ROSENSTEIN ISSUED THE MEMO, SO WHETHER OR NOT ROSENSTEIN MADE THAT RECOMMENDATION, IT WAS IRRELEVANT, ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT, ABOUT HIS DECISION BUT IN TERMS OF WHETHER OR NOT THE. CAN OBSTRUCT JUSTICE TELLING PEOPLE UNDER HIM WHAT TO DO OR FIRING THEM, I LIVED THROUGH THE ’90s AND OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT SAYING THAT PRESIDENT CLINTON OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE BY TELLING PEOPLE WHO WORKED FOR HIM WHAT TO DO AND THREATENING THE INVESTIGATION INTO HIM, AND I RECALL A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW AS TO THE PRESIDENT’S POWERS.>>WELL YOU’RE CONFLATING WITNESS TAMPERING WHICH WAS SOME OF THE CONCERN THERE, WITH TELLING WITNESSES WHAT TO DO WITH THIS SITUATION. THIS IS NOT A SITUATION OF WITNESS TAMPERING. THIS IS NOT A SITUATION OF BRIBERY.>>NO, IT’S FIRING THE GUY IN CHARGE OF THE INVESTIGATION.>>LOOK, THE CONSTITUTION IS — I MEAN, THIS IS CONSTITUTION 101 HERE. THE PRESIDENT HAS THE AUTHORITY AS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE TO MAKE THOSE KIND OF DETERMINATIONS. JAMES COMEY, BY THE WAY, STATED AT HIS HEARING.>>HE DID.>>THAT HE UNDERSTANDS THAT HE SERVELZ AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT. SO THIS IS NOT SOME COMPLICATED CASE AND BY THE WAY, THE FACT, JAKE, THAT THE PRESIDENT CONSULTED WITH HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL AND OFFICE OF DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL AND OTHERS, THAT’S CALLED THE DELIBERATIVE PROCESS, THAT’S WHAT. S DO WHEN THEY MAKE DECISIONS THAT ARE SIGNIFICANT.>>SURE. I’M JUST SAYING THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS WERE IRRELEVANT ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT BUT I HEAR WHAT YOU’RE SAYING, BUT JAMES COMEY WAS FIRED ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT, WHEN HE MADE THE DECISION, HE WAS THINKING ABOUT THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION, ACCORDING TO COMEY, THE PRESIDENT HAD SAID TO HIM, “I HOPE YOU LET GO THIS MATTER RELATING TO MIKE FLYNN.” THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM THE CLINTON CASE, WITHOUT QUESTION, BUT BY THE SAME TOKEN THE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE CASE IS HE IS, I’M NOT SAYING THAT IT’S CLEAR-CUT, BUT THE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE CASE IS HE WAS TRYING TO STOP AN INVESTIGATION AND WHEN HE COULDN’T GET WHAT HE WANTED, HE FIRED THE GUY HEADING THE INVESTIGATION.>>BUT AGAIN, WE’RE FRIENDS HERE, THAT’S CONFLATING TWO DIFFERENT STANDARDS UNDER OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. SO YOU CANNOT USE THE COMPARISON. THE PRESIDENT HAS THE CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO DEAL WITH THOSE THAT ARE SUBORDINATES WITHIN AN ADMINISTRATION. THAT IS AS CLEAR AS THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF. THAT IS A POWER VESTED IN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THAT’S NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, THERE IS NO ONGOING INVESTIGATION OF THE PRESIDENT REGARDING ANY OF THIS. JAMES COMEY HAS SAID THAT. THE ONLY BASIS OF THE REPORT IS WHAT CAME OUT OF “THE WASHINGTON POST” LEAKED INFORMATION. AND LET’S TALK ABOUT ACTIVITY. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, YOU HAVE A FORMER FBI DIRECTOR — THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A MOMENT — WHO LEAKS INFORMATION THAT HE OBTAINED. HE HAD A CONVERSATION WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, WRITES IT DOWN ON A GOVERNMENT COMPUTER, IN HIS GOVERNMENT VEHICLE, PUTS IT IN HIS GOVERNMENT DESK AND WHEN HE’S TERMINATED HE LEAKS IT TO A FRIEND OF HIS TO LEAK IT TO THE “NEW YORK TIMES” FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE HE TESTIFIES UNDER OATH THE SOLE PURPOSE OF OBTAINING A SPECIAL COUNSEL. THAT’S WHAT NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED HERE.>>I HOPE THERE’S SOME PANCACA

    "That response (by President Trump) was in response to the piece by WAPO." – I've been saying this since yesterday, but liberals are too busy masturbating to the thought that THIS MIGHT be the ONE thing that could bring Trump down.

  • Tom Kelly Post author

    Wow! Do they teach pretzel logic in law school? Sekulow's arguments are beyond ludicrous.

  • Simon Reid Post author

    It's a shame for Trump's legal team that the special prosecutor will focus on his own remit, not theirs. The leaks do need to be investigated, principally to establish why the internal mechanisms for whistleblowing under this President are not fit for purpose.

    sekulow himself said Trump was under investigation.. LMAO

  • Tyrannasaur Russ Post author

    RedCapitalist: Comey is absolutely not going to be in any trouble for giving an unclassified memo which he wrote himself describing his own recollection of his conversation with Trump to anybody. The key word is Unclassified. What Comey did was, by definition, not leaking. One cannot leak unclassified material. Furthermore, writing something on a government computer does not automatically make it classified, as Sekulow implied. If it did then virtually every government document would be classified. Think about it.
    Also, in what way is CNN desperate? You are talking about journalists, people who, for a living, try to obtain and analyze important information about the people who lead our country and the goings on of the world, and relay it to you. Of course they can't be 100% accurate all the time but you can be sure that they do their best and that what journalists do is fundamental to our democracy, though with a handle like RedCapitalist I doubt that is of much concern to you. If you don't like the coverage then don't watch.

  • protochris Post author

    The real reason Trump fired Comey was that he testified he felt nauseous knowing his investigation into Hillary resulted in Trump's election. That was a classless personal insult from the then FBI director; he deserved to be fired.

  • VHD Dinh Post author

    If Trump had tweeted "If I were being investigated by the special counsel for firing Comey as the Washington Post's story, I would be investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!", Jake wouldn't be so confused!
    Jake, you have to excuse President Trump, his English articulation is not very good!

  • Pancho Villa Post author

    So is Sekulow saying that Trump needs better grammar?  That as in the movie "My cousin Vinny" Trump meant to write, "I am being investigated?"  but somehow omitted the question mark?  In the movie the spin is on the phrase, "I shot the clerk."

    Ok..  say that…but please don't blame Trump's lack of English skills on a Twitter word limitation. In the world of politics, you live and die by your English skills.. both verbal and written.

    Again I asked him…  again he said… "I shot the clerk!?"

  • Laurie Healy Post author

    He fired COMEY because the Wednesday before Trump fired COMEY is when COMEY was testifying before congress, COMEY said HE WOULD DO THE SAME THING HE DID WITH THE CLINTON INVESTIGATION! AND wouldn't change a thing! It's simple, COMEY got on national TV listed all that was wrong with what Clinton did, then said, no charges! Which COMEY DID NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO AS THE FBI DIRECTOR, IT WAS UP TO LYNCH! SHE HID AND PUT COMEY UP TO IT! COMEY Then doubles down in a testimony recently before he got fired just reiterating that he would do it again! That was the nail in COMEY coffin! As for the tweet, What Trump was saying was more sarcastic to the NYT article…like: oh sure, I'm being investigated for firing COMEY from a person that recommended he get fired? Really? The article made no sense.

  • Ross Cicero Post author

    Why doesn't CNN just close up shop and go the fuck away already? If there is any pending investigation it doesn't stop proceeding if the head of the FBI is fired.

  • Michael Meo Post author

    This interview is far more effective than the Chris Wallace attack-dog interview, on the same morning on the same topic.

    The interviewer here does not attempt to mis-remember what the lawyer said. He simply points out, accurately, that the President did say what the lawyer says he did not say.

    That question, whether the Special Counsel is investigating the President, is not avoided by the addition of hypotheticals by the President's lawyer attempting to spin the tweet.

  • Soulaesthete Post author

    I remember when that Washington Post story first broke and ALL of the media outlets went into a frenzy over it, so everyone with half a brain knew that the President was reacting specifically to it at the time. Of course, Jake Tapper doesn't want to go there, because it reminds people how the media's lying leaks are being discredited. Bravo to Jay Sekulow on his knowledge of the law. He just ate Tapper's lunch.

    Hey CNN why don't you hire some grown ups to ask some real questions?

  • johnlyn1 Post author

    It is that simple. Trump was merely MOCKING the Washington Post fake story. Mueller cannot investigate Trump if he wanted to because of his major conflict of interest he has with decades of close friendship with Comey who is the only witness to anything Trump said. The minute Mueller was to touch anything pertaining to Trump is the moment Mueller becomes the poisonous tree and anything he was to find pertaining Trump becomes the poisonous fruit and would not be admissible evidence. Mueller would in fact taint the very evidence he was to find preventing it from being admissible as evidence to be used against Trump. The mere fact Mueller has not recused himself as the law requires him to do is proof in itself Trump is not under investigation by Mueller.

  • todd Post author

    I hope Jay Sekulow is on President Trumps list for his next Supreme Court pick.

  • johnlyn1 Post author

    As soon as he points out the real issue that has indisputable evidence about Comey then Tapper quickly ends the interview. LOL

  • johnlyn1 Post author

    There can be no investigation into Trump by Mueller that has any ties to Comey and President Trump!

    The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has a “conflict of interest.” Even the appearance of a conflict is disallowed.
    The same Code of Federal Regulations defines what constitutes a conflict.  That is, “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution” (28 CFR 45.2). Comey is that person. 
    He was substantially involved in the conversation with President Trump who may be the subject of an obstruction investigation. In fact, the former Director is the only other person involved. There were no witnesses beyond himself.

    Comey insisted he meet with Mueller before he testified before Congress. Comey discussed his meetings with Trump to Mueller. If Mueller believed there was anything to investigate he would have instructed Comey he could not testify about anything he the President talked about. Comey himself testified in other matters before Congress stating he could not answer questions relating to an open investigation. If Mueller believed there was anything to investigate from what Comey shared with him before he testified, that would have just opened an investigation for him to investigate Trump and Comey would not have been allowed to testify to anything about his conversations with Trump since that just became an open investigation. It would also mean Comey committed perjury before Congress in prior testimonies when he said he could not discuss anything pertaining to an open investigation and would only be able to talk about after they completed the investigation.

    This all proves there is no investigation into President Trump by Mueller for anything that would tie to Comey being subjected to it. Mueller himself would become the poisonous tree and anything he finds from his investigation pertaining to President Trump becomes poisonous fruit that would not be admissible. Mueller will have tainted everything where anything he found would not be able to be used against President Trump.

    Mueller is required by law to recuse himself from anything related to President Trump that ties to anything he said to Comey, because of Mueller's major conflict of interest.

    The Washington Post story is completely fabricated garbage and the rest of the media is reporting everything based off this fabricated story. The Washington Post story also claims this is from talking with five people who wish to remain anonymous. There is only five people on the planet that would have any knowledge as to who is being investigated and for what. Mueller himself and the four attorneys he hired on to help him with his investigation. No other people have any knowledge to anything other than these five individuals. If there was any truth to the Washington Post story, then they are admitting their five anonymous sources are in fact Mueller himself and his four attorneys he hired on since they are the only five people on the planet who has any knowledge of anything as to who they are investigating and what they are being investigated for. Not one other person on the planet has any ability to know anything unless it comes directly from Mueller or one of his four attorneys. If there was any truth to the Washington Post story then Mueller just exposed himself and/or the attorneys he hired on as being leakers since no other person on the planet has access to know if they were investigating President Trump.

    The Washington Post story is clearly and obviously 100% made up!

    I love how incredulous the host looks at the mere mention that the news could be fake. There was always something odd about this tweet. No matter how you read it, It conveys a sense of bewilderment. Could it be interpreted as: " '(Now you are to believe)' I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the man that told me to fire the FBI director '(Yeah, right!)' Witch Hunt!"

  • therealfirstone Post author

    I would say Trump was using a talking style known as irony. It's like someone saying "Hey, check this out: This and that is happening". but leaving out "Hey, check this out". The news media acts as if they are confused as to what Trump meas sometimes, all fake. They have been for days saying that Trump said he is under investigation when he was just repeating what the fake article from TWP said.
