Jay Sekulow — the TV face of Trump's personal legal team, an experienced Supreme Court advocate, and chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice — to Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press":
"[T]he president is not under investigation by the special counsel. The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources that were purportedly leaking information to The Washington Post about a potential investigation of the president. But the president, as James Comey said in his testimony and as we know as of today, the president has not been and is not under investigation."
Todd: "If the president is innocent, why is he afraid of this investigation?"
Sekulow: "He's not afraid of the investigation. There is no investigation."
