(NBC News) President Trump’s personal attorney insists the president is not a target of the FBI’s Russia investigation.
“There is not an investigation of the President of the United States, period. Let me clear. The President’s not under investigation. The President has not been notified by anyone that he’s under investigation,” said Jay Sekulow, President Trump’s Legal Team.
