The swamp’s witch hunt against Donald Trump is reaching its end-game.
Robert Mueller has made his final request of the President.
And it’s bad news for Trump and his supporters.
The special counsel is expected to ask for a sit down interview with the President to question him over his decisions to fire former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and former FBI Director James Comey.
The Washington Post reports:
“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans.
Mueller’s interest in the events that led Trump to push out Flynn and Comey indicates that his investigation is intensifying its focus on possible efforts by the president or others to obstruct or blunt the special counsel’s probe.”
Mueller is digging into their dismissals because the collusion investigation is a fake news hoax.
So he’s trying to build a case that the President obstructed justice instead.
Many Trump advisors see the interview as an obvious set up.
The collusion investigation is a dead end and the President cannot obstruct justice because he fired two executive branch employees.
The FBI Director reports to the President and can be dismissed for any reason.
President Trump can’t be guilty of a crime for executing his constitutional duties.
What Trump advisors fear is that Mueller is setting a perjury trap.
The Post also reports:
However, some of Trump’s close advisers and friends fear that a face-to-face interview with Mueller could put the president in legal jeopardy. A central worry, they say, is Trump’s lack of precision in his speech and his penchant for hyperbole.
People close to Trump have tried to warn him for months that Mueller is a “killer,” in the words of one associate, noting that the special counsel has shown interest in the president’s actions.
Roger Stone, a longtime informal adviser to Trump, said he should try to avoid an interview at all costs, saying that agreeing to such a session would be a “suicide mission.”
“I find it to be a death wish. Why would you walk into a perjury trap?” Stone said. “The president would be very poorly advised to give Mueller an interview.”
When the FBI interviews a subject, they already know all the facts.
What they want to see is if what the subject recalls matches up with what they know.
If Trump misspeaks about who attended a meeting, or misremembers when it was held, Mueller will charge him with “lying” to the FBI.
The interview request is a scam to create the grounds to impeach the President.
Congress and the Department of Justice should reign in Mueller.
He was tasked with investigating Russian meddling in the election.
But there is no collusion, so his investigation should be terminated and the President exonerated.
