White House press secretary Sean Spicer said it was possible that the White House would have an answer this week as to whether there are tapes of conservations between President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey.
Later in the interview, Cuomo asked Sekulow why Trump's legal team had not directly asked Mueller whether the president was under investigation, suggesting that it was purposefully remaining ignorant on the question.
Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation.
But so far, Sekulow's short tenure as Trump's personal defender on TV hasn't been so smooth.
How do you know?
If the Post story turns out to be real news, what we will have is an investigation of an impossible crime being conducted by a special counsel who is burdened by severe conflicts and supervised by another conflicted official.
"That tweet was in response to a Washington Post story that ran with five unnamed sources", Sekulow said in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union". He's since received backlash from liberal media outlets.

Appearing on a series of morning news programs, attorney Jay Sekulow repeatedly stressed Sunday that "the president has not been and is not under investigation".
The questions were prompted by a tweet the president wrote last week in which he appeared to acknowledge that he is a subject of the FBI's investigation, which he seem to erroneously assert is being led by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

"Trump has a compulsion to counter-attack and is very pugnacious".
The White House spent the day clarifying that the President was not confirming whether he was indeed under investigation, but rather was simply responding to the report. To make it more hard, Trump's statements threaten to undercut their work. He said the President used tweets to speak with the public directly.
Trump essentially confessed that he fired Comey in order to forestall the Russian Federation investigation, telling NBC News interviewer Lester Holt in nationally televised broadcast that "this Russian Federation thing" was among his motivations for firing Comey.
The other rumor that's been going around is that the president is not happy with special counsel Robert Mueller and was - at one point anyway - on the brink of firing him, on the ground that he's biased. Now, despite direct contradiction from the President himself, Trump's attorneys are saying he isn't being looked into.
Taking to Twitter last Sunday while spending the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland, Trump again referenced the "distraction of the Witch Hunt". Politico reported last Saturday the White House plans to work with Republicans in the House to make changes to the bill, which curbs Trump's ability to ease penalties against Russian Federation.
