Robert Mueller’s investigation now hinges on one question.
Will the special counsel interview Donald Trump?
But the President just responded with the three words that stopped Mueller dead in his tracks.
Trump held a press conference with the Norwegian Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister fielded one question about the reports that Trump’s team was preparing for Mueller to request an interview with Trump.
Trump responded to the question by pointing out that the collusion narrative is fake news.
There is no evidence of collusion.
And since there was no collusion, Trump stated that “it seems unlikely” he would be interviewed by Mueller.
ABC News reports:
“President Donald Trump would not commit Wednesday to being interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the Russia investigation and called the prospect “unlikely,” despite saying last year that he would be willing to speak with him.
“We’ll see what happens,” Trump said when asked if he would be open to such a meeting. “Certainly I’ll see what happens, but when they have no collusion and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview.”
Trump’s position, stated during a news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House, came in the wake of reports this week that Mueller and his team raised the possibility of an interview with the president during a meeting with his attorneys.
A source with knowledge of the meeting, which occurred last month, said that it was not the first instance in which Mueller expressed a desire to meet with Trump as he continues to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign.”
Trump is right not to want to sit for an interview with Mueller.
Mueller is presiding over a corrupt and illegitimate inquiry that’s based on fake news and hoaxes.
The only reason he wants to interview Trump is to catch him misremembering some fact or misstating a date so he can claim the President lied to investigators and should be impeached.
But rather than interviewing the President, Mueller should be publically apologizing for wasting the tax payer’s money on this wild goose chase and exonerate the President.
