Theres no way in hell Trump would sit down with Mueller. As much as I'd love it, it would never happen.

I can’t see his lawyers allowing him to walk into a perjury trap.

If Trump could only tell the truth... Something about tangled webs.

Interesting that people who call themselves 'conservatives' are no longer concerned with honesty, ethics and integrity. But probably most never were.

The best thing that's come from the Trump reign has been exposing the thug capitalists who run the country and how nasty they are. Speaking of nasty, has Trump shown his CURRENT tax info, not the partials he stiffed Maddow with?

Oh, stop! Everyone knows what this is and deeply advised him, the problem is when a person has nothing to hide like Trump there is No way he would sit down with a man that owns a grand jury, No Way! He is so confident and wants to tell him whatever he wants, No guilty person would ever say or even think that, but Mueller has to justify his existence and he needs to ride a report, but because they don't have a case, that is why this perjury trap is dicey.

Funny, how liberals are more obsessed with removing a President than listening to his side or giving him a benefit of a doubt. I thought this was the USA. Oh, it's turning into a socialist nation, why am I not surprised. The presumption of innocence doesn't apply to conservatives or people the left hate.

If you go by that, liberals and Democrats need to reserve courtyard at Pelican Bay.

Again, this is completely false and a distorted narrative the left makes up. Trump didn't give Madcow anything.

Even fellow Republicans know that this isn't looking to good for Dump. They made a whole video to be played on FOX, so he would listen to them.

Republicans tell Trump: Lay off Mueller _ but they don't act

GOP consultant Liz Mair, a strategist for the group, said that the group doesn’t believe Trump committed any crimes during the 2016 presidential election. But she added that the outfit views Mueller, who is leading the investigation into Russia’s meddling, as “the only investigator who has had significant interest and success in going after Russians who interfered in the 2016 election” as well as “stereotypical Beltway influence-peddlers who were exactly the people voters rebelled against in 2016.”

They spent millions of dollars for an ad for only one person to see. They also admit that Mueller is doing his job well! LOL!

Dump will start hiding even more so behind other people and excuses. I wouldnt be surprised if some of his kids get thrown under the bus. We already know his cabinet is fair game. Mueller is going to choke the life out of his presidency.

The ad is called "WEAK".

Trump's lawyers are so afraid that Trump is going to lie, they're afraid to put him before Mueller. A perjury trap is what they're calling it, but it isn't a perjury trap if Trump simply tells the truth. Ahh, but that's just it. If Trump does tell the truth, he's in a world of trouble. The truth shall set you free!

However, in Trump's mind anyway, the lies will set you free. And his legal team knows he thinks so too.

Republicon congressman in New York arrested today for insider trading. He was the first person to back Dump in 2016.

And so the winning continues for the Dump team!

Trump doesn't have to worry about anything. As Giuliani said, they're going to make it so hard for Mueller and even if he got a subpoena, one thing they can't do is make the President talk, unless they want to waterboard him and that won't happen. Liberals think for some reason this is an open and shut case and Trump has to follow Mueller when nothing could be further from the truth.

Mueller is going to choke the life out of his presidency.

Yes, the left said that about collusion, about Russia, about the Billy Bush tapes, about attacking Khan, about DACA, about his tweets, about insulting LeBron (oh, my) about a failed porn star and on and on and on and nothing, if anything, Trump is choking the life out of the Democratic party. lol

A few months ago the Dems had their NY AG darling Schneidermann had to resign because of and in addition to being a jerk, stepped down for being violent brut.

It happens on both sides, people are people and are subject to being fallible. Keep trying my left brothas!

Steeping down for being a jerk is different than the Republican using his position to advance his family and friends financially. A person like Manafort after his own heart. See the trend with all the Republicans being caught in criminals acts.

If anything that you said was true then you wouldn't have Dump's own allies asking him to chill by running ad campaigns. For a president who claims to be strong, he is the first in US history to take orders from a TV network.

Trump has fumed to confidants that the Mueller probe is “going to choke the life out of” his presidency if allowed to continue indefinitely, according to an outside adviser who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations with the president.

Likely contributing to Trump’s sense of frustration, The New York Times reported last week that Mueller had subpoenaed the Trump Organization for Russia-related documents. Trump had said Mueller would cross a red line with such a step.

If Dump wasn't worried then he wouldn't be acting like a criminal. Wouldn't he want Mueller to prove that he innocent?

Ahhhh....he was more than just a jerk. Don Lemon is a jerk. LeBron is a jerk, Schneidermann was a sociopath.

I could make a list of liberals caught in the act. By the way, how many Republicans do you know hide cash in their freezer? I personally don't know any.

He didn't take orders, nice try and what's wrong with taking advice from expert pundits on the biggest news network. Obama did with msnbc. Sharpton and Maddow, Imelt were all seen at the White House advising the President, be fair now.

If Dump wasn't worried then he wouldn't be acting like a criminal.

Huh, I guess the lefts insistence on the presumption of innocence means to them, guilty.

Wouldn't he want Mueller to prove that he innocent?

If he didn't have an all star Democrat team, a team where the majority of them donated to Hillary and 4 worked or represented Hillary. Why would any sane person believe what Mueller has to say, I wouldn't.

Yes, the opinions of the giant man baby adulterer in office who made fun of the disabled and war veterans and admitted to assaulting woman on video before being investigated for collusion due to his association to known criminals. The person who has been caught in more lies than any other president in history.

If he didn't have an all star Democrat team, a team where the majority of them donated to Hillary and 4 worked or represented Hillary. Why would any sane person believe what Mueller has to say, I wouldn't.

Lead by a Republican (Mueller), overseen by a Republican (Rosenstein), and appointed by Republicans.

He didn't take orders, nice try and what's wrong with taking advice from expert pundits on the biggest news network. Obama did with msnbc. Sharpton and Maddow, Imelt were all seen at the White House advising the President, be fair now.

You mean Dump's favorites Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly both who were accused of sexual harassment like the FOX executives. How much did one pay, $32,000,000. Hannity was also a client of Cohen?

Both host are not considered experts/news shows and are labeled as "Entertainment show" by their own network. It is funny that Dump gets most of his cabinet from people he saw on FOX.

Even Nixon was responsible enough to say yes to the special investigation request. Trump had better say yes. He doesn't have to, but it would make him look better if he said yes. A confident person would not be trying to fight such a serious investigation.

For those worried about a "perjury trap", an honest president wouldn't fall in one now would they? A good leader has the trust of their people. A bad leader does not... You scared or something?

"For those worried about a "perjury trap", an honest president wouldn't fall in one now would they?"

Mother Teresa wouldn't be able to get through a Mueller interview unscathed.

"Theres no way in hell Trump would sit down with Mueller. As much as I'd love it, it would never happen."

I disagree. Trump MUST talk to Mueller and tell him: You're fired.

Whats a perjury trap?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

When you lie like trump does,so easily and brazenly,there's no trap needed to be set.He couldn't remember the truth even if he wanted to.He's as much in denial as his supporters are in their warped defense of him.

Im just wondering if I should start shouting "perjury trap" anytime a Democrat is being investigated.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

"What's a perjury trap?"

It's when a crafty prosecutor tricks someone into unknowingly saying something that isn't true and then uses it against them. The only thing Trump should say to Mueller is "You're fired." And maybe "Beat it, punk."

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Gotcha.

So when the FBI wants to question Clinton I should respond with "perjury trap!". Or Lois Lerner? Or Peter Strzok, or anyone the IG is investigating.

I like that. :)

Perjury trap!!

Super, Super... there's a big difference between the FBI questioning Clinton on her crimes and this tool of the Democrats Mueller trying to trick Trump into perjury.

But hey...

Sanders/Mueller 2020! Tee hee!

Keep the blinders on Serrano. Trump is more important to you than the well being of the people of this country and the constitution. Cos if Trump says "You're fired" many others will tell Trump, "You're impeached". Go ahead... make my day.
