    I think Trumps lawyers are going to want the question before hand. They will want to so prepare written answers and Trump just would have to read them off Q-cards. Of course the interview would be done on closed circuit TV with Trump with Trump and his lawyers in one room and Mueller 100 feet away in another room. This will allow the lawyers to be behind the camera and give Trump the proper directions like Action and Cut. At the end of it Trump is going to want to know how is ratings are and if he was nominated for an Emmy.
    Still a lot of people to shift through. Like Jr and all the people that were cc'ed on George P. emails to them. And of course Kushner.

    I have total faith that Mueller is going to do a great job, which means it's going to take some time.

    You know Mueller would not have approached Trump's lawyers wanting an interview if he already didn't have what he needed. Jr and George P and Kushner have been questioned by House Committees. Mueller doesn't necessarily have to question them before Trump if he has the answers to his questions from those interviews. I would say it actually its better if Kushner and Don Jr are not questioned before Trump by Mueller. If Mueller questioned them first this would give the major player (Trump) information to figure out what Mueller knows already and doesn't know already. If he interviews Trump first Trump essentially has no clue what info Mueller is armed with.

    Nope.

    Unless Mueller has something, there is no interview. He can submit questions in writing.

    So odd, for someone who has said over and over again it's a Witch Hunt..

    If he doe not have anything to hide, why not just agree to talk to Mueller?
    Because he may have plenty to hide if Mueller digs into his taxes or his entrepreneurial maneuverings that have nothing to do with Russian meddling in the election.

    Do you think that if Trump broke some rules to try and build a Trump tower in Moscow that such a violation falls within Mueller's purview?

    I like this excuse: "Sure, I'll concede he's a criminal, but does the FBI really have jurisdiction to investigate these particular crimes?"

    The wing-nut brigade is getting pretty pathetic.

    Sorry, but anyone who volunteers to be a politician automatically has criminal tendencies. And the higher you go, the more unethical it is because lying to people is built into the job.

    Getting people who hate each other to both vote for you is an act of deception.

    I know Entrepreneurs. I have studied them for 40 years and following the rules isn't exactly at the top of their list of values. I have always felt that Trump complimented Putin because he wanted to sell him something. That has nothing to do with Russia meddling in our election.

Trump repeatedly dodged whether he would submit to an interview with Mueller by citing his claim there was no collusion during the 2016 presidential election.

    Trump's comments are a shift from this past weekend, when he indicated he was open to speaking with Mueller. "It's sort of like, when you've done nothing wrong, let's be open and get it over with," he told reporters at Camp David in Maryland.
    Asked last June if he would be "100 percent willing" to speak to the special counsel under oath about his interactions with ousted FBI Director James Comey, Trump told a reporter, "I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you."


    Trump on Wednesday pivoted from the prospect of an interview to criticizing the FBI for its handling of the investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while at the State Department.

    But of course he pivoted away from the question.

    Subpoena it is

    The man is a weasel. It's what weasels do. Or in this particular case it may be he shot his mouth off again and his lawyers convinced him otherwise. Either way he's an idiot.

    And extremely cynical.

    It also begs the question why Kmiller1610 is constantly defending Trump. Doesn't say much for his ethics.
