Donald Trump Jr., who still doesn't know how to sit properly on a stool, awkwardly perched himself on the set of Justice with Judge Jeanine Saturday night where he unwittingly implicated his father and corroborated former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's testimony before Congress. "Presidents are not historically called before Congress".
Meanwhile, the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, which is also probing Russian election meddling, wrote Comey requesting his notes memorializing his conversations with Trump.
The president reiterated his intention to disclose whether tapes exist of the meeting after a throng of reporters asked why he couldn't confirm or deny their existence immediately.
When journalists wondered whether Trump was saying that Comey lied under oath, Trump skirted the direct question but didn't change the substance of his point: "I didn't say that". "For all those different reasons, it would be inappropriate".
U.S. President Donald Trump surprisingly refrained from tweeting during James Comey's testimony.
Legal scholars disagree over whether a sitting president can be prosecuted, but the White House Counsel's office has argued against it, deciding in at least two instances not to indict a president, Seidman said.
"I'm not going to speculate on what [Trump] will or will not do" with regard to Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the FBI's Russian Federation probe, Sekulow told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview on "This Week" Sunday.

Before you throw down more than $1,000, the big question is whether or not it's worth upgrading if you already have an iMac. It doesn't have Apple's sharp retina display, and it's had the same basic design since 2010, which makes it feel dated.
Republican Gianforte wins Montana House race after assault charge
The fallout from the alleged assault was swift, though it ultimately didn't make much difference to the outcome of the election. The candidates are vying to replace Ryan Zinke , whom President Donald Trump selected to be Interior secretary.
'16 champ Djokovic stunned by Thiem in French Open quarters
Thiem erased the first with a forehand volley and the other with a service victor that prompted Djokovic to roll his eyes. Djokovic's backhand really let him down in the tiebreaker: All seven points won by Thiem ended with that stroke.
The president did not provide any evidence to back up his claim about more leaks from Comey, whom he fired on May 9. But if the 2018 midterms shake things up, that could change the dynamic.
Trump then went on to talk about recordings of these conversations, in response to a questions, that he had first suggested in a tweet after firing Comey.
He seemed to be promising, however, that he would speak with special counsel Robert Mueller, not in a public forum.
Rhee's past work on behalf of the Clinton Foundation is unlikely to go ignored by Trump supporters - though others at WilmerHale, such as Jamie Gorelick, now represent Trump's immediate family members. But Trump, who has the same protections as all citizens, could invoke his right against self-incrimination. More importantly, what's Donald Jr going to say when Bob Mueller subpoenas him now to testify to what he knows about the Trump/Comey conversation?
"Making a strong case for himself while under questioning is risky, but it may be his best chance to convince the public that he is being honest".
In the Clinton impeachment case, the House of Representatives dropped an article on obstruction of justice, said Turley, who testified before the House in favor of impeachment.
Turley said Comey is unlikely to face criminal charges, but he could be found in violation of professional standards.
"Yes, I was on Judiciary Cmte that impeached Clinton/sent him for trial in the Senate for matters less serious than the ones before us now", Inglis tweeted Friday.
