Special Counsel, Robert Mueller says that he will accept written answers from President Trump on collusion. I can see it now. Leaks from the special counsel’s office with false information on Trump’s answers. We’ve seen so much of this coming from Mueller and his team that it’s not even a surprise anymore.
The counsel made it clear that it still wants an interview on obstruction of justice charges, which is a joke. You can’t be guilty of obstruction of justice if there was no collusion, but the counsel maintains it is. President Trump is said to welcome an interview with Mueller, but his legal team is wise to dirty cop Mueller and his lifelong habit of charging the wrong people and hiding exculpatory evidence.
The letter was the latest in lengthy negotiations between the two sides about whether Mr. Trump will be interviewed by investigators. “We continue to maintain an ongoing dialogue with the office of the special counsel,” Mr. Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow said, adding that it was the legal team’s policy not to discuss its communications with the special counsel’s office. A spokesman for the special counsel declined to comment.
Mr. Trump’s lawyers have tried to put off a formal interview; they have repeatedly said that to determine whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia’s election interference and whether Mr. Trump tried to obstruct the inquiry, Mr. Mueller can find the answers in the interviews that his investigators have conducted with witnesses, including senior White House aides and administration officials, and more than 1.4 million documents turned over by the White House.
The charge of obstruction revolves around the firing of James Comey, whose only mystery is whether he is more incompetent than he is dishonest or vice versa. Really, it’s way too close to call.
