Robert Mueller has finally sprung his trap.
His team put in a request to interview the President.
But Trump shut him down with two words.
Muller is scheming to pin obstruction of justice charges on Donald Trump.
He is rewriting the Constitution in order to make them stick.
But Trump defended himself by correctly saying that “fighting back” is not obstructing justice.
The Hill reports:
“President Trump defended his attacks of investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, denying that it amounts to obstruction and saying he was merely “fight[ing] back.”
“There’s been no collusion whatsoever,” Trump told reporters in an impromptu press conference on Wednesday. “There’s no obstruction whatsoever. And I’m looking forward to it.”
Trump also mocked critics who have accused him of obstructing the Russia probe by attacking the investigations and referring to them as a “witch hunt.”
“You fight back, oh, it’s obstruction,” Trump mockingly told reporters.
Trump also told reporters that he plans to speak with special counsel Robert Mueller in two to three weeks, but said his lawyers are working out the specifics.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Trump said about being questioned by Mueller. “I would do it under oath.”
The president has repeatedly referred to the Russia probe as a “hoax” and said in December that the investigation “makes the country look very bad.”
“It puts the country in a very bad position,” Trump told The New York Times. “So the sooner it’s worked out, the better it is for the country.”
No one expected Trump to want to cooperate with Mueller.
But interviewing the President could be a sign that the ridiculous Russia witch hunt is wrapping up.
No evidence of collusion has ever been discovered.
It was – as Trump always claimed – a fake news hoax invented by the Democrats to excuse Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 election.
But there is still danger for the President to sit down with Mueller.
Mueller is a bloodthirsty prosecutor on a crusade against the President.
And the White House lawyers are working to stop him from setting up a perjury trap.
“Although Trump may want to testify, White House special counsel Ty Cobb made the case last week that attorneys don’t want to expose him to a potential a “perjury trap.”
“I would hope that a fair-minded Office of Special Counsel would approach it in a dutiful way consistent with precedent and it wouldn’t just be a perjury trap,” Cobb told CBS News last week.
According to one source, the President’s attorneys will likely present their arguments to Mueller’s team that there is no case against Trump.”
