Sitting Down in a room full of Crooked Lawyers !
Not a good idea !

if He says Hello, They will Say He Lied !

Wasted money that can best be used investigating Benghazi.

I think he should because twice he said he would.
Jim Flippence
 
If He Says "Good Morning"
They will want to Impeach him For Lying !

Good Morning, Ann (smile)
Ann Morrissey Eul
 
That's not the point. Trump himself said if he was asked he would 100% be there.

Written Questions,
Written Answers !
Lewis Neidhardt
Then the crooked lawyers would be answering the questions.

Asking And Answering !
that's My Point !
Sidney P
Yes, he should sit for an interview with Mueller's team. Not only has he promised to do so, he needs to explain his rather vocal insistence that there's nothing to investigate. Clearly, he believes something different than the investigators believe. He needs to explain why that is.
JIM JAMES
He needs to explain nothing. He needs to have the meeting and make this statement: "Mr. Mueller, you have 30 days to finish this and get an indictment. 30 days and you are off the clock."
Keith Jennings
 
If he's to the point of interviewing Trump, he doesn't need another 30 days. He has what he needs to make indictments or not. It's just a matter of how Trump wants to handle it!
Mick Hargrave
I am with you Trump set Precedent when he as President of the United States said would sit down with a Special Prosecutor. It is unheard of and bat poop crazy because of the Office but since he did he might as well carry through on it. Like you said Mueller has what he needs it just how many indictm...
Keith Jennings
 
Exactly, Mick. This is Trump's opportunity to do the right thing for the country. If he fights this thing to the bitter end, we just may have the civil war so many, especially on his side, think they want. The left wing crazies will be in the streets too. There is no good outcome to it, but he can m...
Keith Jennings
 
Yes. Edited. Thank you!
Mick Hargrave
You are right Keith. Trump thinks only about Self-Preservation he could care less about the whole country.

Even Nixon who had a legit case of voter fraud in Illinois that would have given him the election over JFK walked away so as not to Destroy the fabric of American Society. Trump is not that he ...
Lewis Neidhardt
He's already gotten four indictments, with two pleading guilty, so he's fulfilled that part of your hypothetical ultimatum.
Next!
Keith Jennings
 
Uh, oh!
Richard Hertz
Mueller has two convictions already, and has indicted #45's campaign manager Manafort and his deputy Page. He has 34 sealed indictments from his grand jury. Bannon has flipped and is working with Mueller, and has been since he was fired. Priebus, McGahn and Bannon all have the same attorney. We know...
Keith Jennings
 
He really doesn't have a choice and Mueller may offer him an out much less painful than fighting it until the end will bring!
Peter Green
Hell no. Mr. Mueller is obviously angling for a process crime since there was no actual underlying collusion-related crime.

FBI: "I think you robbed a bank in Oklahoma City last February 5th."

Me: "I couldn't have. I was visiting my relatives in Ohio on the 5th of Feb 2017."

The FBI checks my credit ...
Mick Hargrave
Make believe BS proves nothing of the sort. You make up facts to fit your narrative instead of just dealing with the facts that are on record.
Peter Green
I'm not even sure what that means. It's a complete non-sequitur.

You're not a very happy fellow, are you Mr. Hargrave?
Mick Hargrave
Still nothing but BS and made up facts to try and fit your fictionial world of events.
Peter Green
So you don't think Mr. Mueller is just angling for a process crime since there was no underlying collusion-related offense, Mr. Hargrave?
Mick Hargrave
Trump is the one that said he would 100% Testify before Mueller. Besides Trump wanted him to take over the F.B.I. and interviewed him for the job so he must trust him a lot.

So you need to take that up with Trump.

Trump says he will testify under Oath before Mueller.

Peter Green
Welp, if what you say, Mr. Hargrave, is true, then I hope President Trump changes his mind, & shuts the door in Mr. Mueller's face.
Mick Hargrave
Besides why would Mueller not? Trump is the one that offered so why shouldn't Mueller take him up on it. Only an idiot wouldn't. That is what Special Prosecutors do. It is their JOB btw. You really need to bone up on the judicial system in the US.
Peter Green
President Trump can say "No interview. I changed my mind. The judiciary & executive are co-equal branches. Go pound sand, Mueller." And I hope he does.
Richard Hertz
Clinton, Bush II, and Reagan have all testified or given interviews. There is precedent. That answer was to see how many people know nothing of history.
Mick Hargrave
That would just make the President look more guilty by not sitting down with Mueller after he said he would.
Peter Green
I know history, Mr. Hertz. And so what? Nobody can force President Trump to be interviewed. He should tell the FBI (et al) to go pound sand, whether Mr. Hargrave thinks it'll "make him look more guilty" or not. Mr. Hargrave would hate the president if he cured cancer.
Richard Hertz
Does your history have the presidents I listed testifying before a special prosecutor? Does your legal dictionary have the definition of precedent? You may be up to date on revisionist history, but you are ill-informed on what really happened in history.
Peter Green
I know history, Mr. Hertz. I even have a bachelor's degree, as such. Nevertheless, regardless as to precedent, President Trump can simply say "No, Mr. Mueller .... I won't do it .... And go to hell." And he should .... Just as he did with respect to releasing his tax-returns .... in spite of your...
Mick Hargrave
And yet you Peter Green refuse to believe Trump when he says he can't wait to sit down with Mueller!!!

http://www.newsweek.com/donald -trump-robert-muelle...
Peter Green
As usual, Mr. Hargrave, that's a purposeful misrepresentation of what I said. Why do you lie so much?
Mick Hargrave
Point out where I lied. As usual you lie then blame others for lying.
Mick Hargrave
It is obvious that Trump wants to testify so are saying you are smarter than the President now????
Mick Hargrave
Well Trump said he would be glad to Testify so let him do it. Or is this just another Lie by Trump? It is Trump's credibility on line not Mueller's.

If Trump doesn't just more proof he is LIAR and can't be trusted. The only reason their is a Special Prosecutor is because Trump LIED in the 1st place ...
Richard Hertz
He won't testify until SCOTUS forces him to. Mueller has to ask only one question. Did you try to have a special prosecutor fired, without cause? If #45 answers yes, guilty of obstruction, if he answers no, and his people who are cooperating (Priebus took copious notes) with Mueller have already sai...
Mick Hargrave
Trump's problem in all this is Trump from lying about having tapes of him and Comey to saying he would 100% sit down with Mueller.

Keith Jennings
 
Trump's problem is he is guilty and can't buy his way out of this one!
Mick Hargrave
Yep he has no one to bribe so he can do business.
Whicket Williams
 
before this is over, Mueller will be revealed as a trump ally, flipped to stay outta prison for treason, and when the tribunals are finished, everybody will forgive him for being a traitor and Hillary's bagboy.
Mick Hargrave
Trump wanted him to take over the F.B.I. and interviewed him for the job so how is he Hillary's Bagboy?
Lewis Neidhardt
Chemtrails did it.
Richard Hertz
Made the frogs gay...
Lewis Neidhardt
Right! And the world is flat too.

Man, Alex Jones has got a grip on Whicket!
Lewis Neidhardt
Only he has the truth.
Keith Jennings
 
And the truth has set him free...from reality!

Richard Hertz
Why do you deem these questions stupid? Did you ever consider that maybe the admins like receiving free content? Free content that generates debate, clicks, and time spent on the TPC site.

Jeff Pfeifer
No...it's all based on phony accusations.
Keith Jennings
 
Jeff, do a little research before spouting the standard Trump line!
Jeff Pfeifer
There are some news sources I trust more than others...and safe to say Rush Limbaugh has done a fair amount of research. I do like most of what Trump is doing but, I don't always agree...language especially. He needs to learn to let some things just roll off his back.
Keith Jennings
 
Rush isn't a source of objective information!
Jeff Pfeifer
Oh yes he is and he's one of the few I trust!
Richard Hertz
He is a drug addled toad, and his best hits are when some liberals burns him on his own show. Link to Rush fails on YouTube. There are some gems!
jv ,
Rush has always been a political hack with no morals and no respect for the constitution
Jeff Pfeifer
I don't always agree, but he's certainly a man of integrity and love for our country. You might accuse him of a lot of things, but 'no respect for the constitution'..that I don't buy.
jv ,
His blind support of the gop kinda proves it
Jeff Pfeifer
Actually Rush has not supported the GOP and has called them out for not getting conservative issues out there. In fact the other day, he accuse the GOP of talking up conservative issues but not doing them. Trump is actually doing what they've said for years they wanted to do and never did.
Mick Hargrave
Maybe but Rush is nothing but a Sycophant not a impartial observer that can be relied on.

Process crimes and off subject topic aren't worth spit or a hill of beans.
Richard Hertz
I dropped out of law school, but isn't a process crime still a crime? Punishable by a fine or a prison sentence? Are you okay with some crimes, as long as a GOP member is committing them? Are there crimes that you think are okay for a Democatic member to commit? If so what are they (both questions)?
Robin Larson is online.
I thought you said you didn't finish High School. Caught in your lies again Richard.
Richard Hertz
I didn't finish high school, or get to graduate with my class. I had to get a GED from the state, before they would even let me take the ACT test, required at the time ('81) to enter college. I started as a Political Science major, taking all of the classes necessary to get accepted to law school. I...
Mick Hargrave
Well had Trump not said he had tapes of his Comey's conversations and then fired him that would not be a Special Prosecutor now would there.
Richard Hertz
There are 13 people as of Jan 13 that think there is no precedent for a sitting POTUS to talk to a special prosecutor. Though Obama, Bush the Elder, and Carter are the only POTUS who haven't talked to a special prosecutor, since Nixon refused to talk to Archibald Cox. Google Archibald Cox and see ho...

Opps those pesky facts.

Like the trumpers say there is nothing to see here. Wow, I knew about the Felix Sater-Bayrock connection months ago. Here is a little gem I found today.

it is the money aspect that is going to take him down.
