    He can be forced to appear before a grand jury.

    The Supreme Court ruled that President Bill Clinton could be deposed in the Paula Jones matter.

    The only right a person has is not to answer any question asked of them. There is no right in the US Constitution that a person has the right not to be questioned.

    Donald Trump has the right to plead the 5th amendment.

    That's what he implied that he intends to do in yesterday's interview. We'll see.

    We all know what Trump thinks about the 5th amendment.




    Trump is trying to invoke The Hillary Clinton Exception. Remember when the Right claimed that future criminals would claim the Hillary Exemption to get easier treatment by the FBI>

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
    His advice to Bill Clinton was that he should have refused to answer any questions. Trump will not do it.

    It also begs the question why Kmiller1610 is constantly defending Trump. Doesn't say much for his ethics.
    Defending while criticizing. You just want me to join the crucifixion crew and I won't do it. So far, Trump's actions as President have been more consistent with his promises than Obama's were. Though neither of them scored well in their first year, so that isn't saying much. Look, I enjoy taking between positions. So mocking Trump wile defending him is right up my alley. I don't like Trump. I still want him to succeed.

    It's based on the study of behaviors and phenomena. And of course, we have limited information to work with, so I am just looking and interpreting. YMMV.
