But at the fore is Gorelick and Mueller were law partners prior to Mueller being appointed special counsel to investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and alleged ties to Trump's former campaign, The Times reported.

So was host Chris Wallace, whose refusal to let the attorney, Jay Sekulow, get away with contradictory statements about the investigation led to a tense back-and-forth.

I didn't say investigation...

Mueller declined comment as he left the meeting Tuesday. The Trump administration used a memo written by Rosenstein to justify Comey's firing, an act that Trump says is now under investigation. "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!"

However, one notable moment came when Sekulow appeared to reverse course on "Fox News Sunday" by acknowledging to Wallace that Trump is under investigation for firing FBI Director James Comey last month.

Then the president, according to Comey, asked Comey to drop the investigation into whether Flynn had lied to FBI agents and others. But Comey has testified under oath that in a private meeting, Trump raised the investigation of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn — part of the larger Russian Federation probe — and said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.” Comey said he took this “hope, ” coming from the president of the United States, as a direction. "This whole thing stinks".

Schiff says firing Mueller would echo Watergate
In Comey's testimony before the Senate on Thursday, he said the president had asked him for a pledge of loyalty. When Mueller was appointed special counsel last month, Democrats and Republicans praised the decision.

A member of President Trump's legal team told NBC, Sunday that Trump is not under any form of investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. Mark Warner. The committee is conducting a third investigation into possible interference into the election that saw testimonies in recent weeks from former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, among others, according to reports.

So far, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has confirmed only that they are investigating alleged Russian meddling in last year's presidential election and whether or not Trump's presidential campaign had improper contacts with Russian operatives during the election. Portions of that conversation were leaked to The Washington Post, and that generated interest in the relationship, if any, of the Trump campaign and transition team to the Russian government. "So I - I can't read people's minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there's an investigation to the president of the United States".

Attacking the idea that the president tried to obstruct the investigation also seems key.

In response to this rumor, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, co-head of the House Intelligence Committee said, if Mueller is fired by Trump, his committee would hire him, "so don't waste our time". "Ah-hah!" they squealed, Trump has confirmed that he is under investigation. However, Rosenstein still has authority over Mueller.

"And why you haven't picked up that phone to find out is a little odd", Cuomo said.

The Republican senator from Florida sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee now investigating the matter. He added: "A lot of people have said, 'When do you think you'll be done?' Maybe the end of the year".
