It was only a little more than a week ago that the Washington Post dropped their bombshell story alleging that while James Comey might have informed Donald Trump that he was not personally under investigation by the FBI…things had changed dramatically since Comey’s firing.
According to the Post, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was now personally investigating the president for obstruction of justice in relation to his firing of Comey and other matters relating to the Russia probe. Naturally, the mainstream media ran with the story as fast as they could, treating the WaPo story as the gospel truth. Even the president himself appeared to take the story at face value, telling the public several times on Twitter that he was under investigation and blasting the “witch hunt” that he perceived as unfolding in Washington.
But was the story even true?
The knives came out when one of Trump’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow, said Sunday that his client was in fact NOT under investigation.
“Let me be clear,” he said. “The president is not under investigation as James Comey stated in his testimony – that the president was not the target of investigation on three difference occasions. The president is not a subject or target of an investigation.”
