Memo to Trump—Defy Mueller!

Memo to Trump—Defy Mueller! By Pat Buchanan.

If Donald Trump does not wish to collaborate in the destruction of his presidency, he will refuse to be questioned by the FBI, or by a grand jury, or by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his malevolent minions. …

The goal of Mueller’s prosecutors is to take down Trump on the cheap. If they can get him behind closed doors and make him respond in detail to questions—to which they already know the answers—any misstep by Trump could be converted into a perjury charge.

Trump has to score 100 on a test to which Mueller’s team has all the answers in advance while Trump must rely upon memory.

Why take this risk?

By now, witnesses have testified in ways that contradict what Trump has said. This, plus Trump’s impulsiveness, propensity to exaggerate, and often rash responses to hostile questions, would make him easy prey for the perjury traps prosecutors set up when they cannot convict their targets on the evidence.

By the standard of “telling a mistruth to the investigators”, anyone can be made to appear guilty. Imagine being asked questions about minutiae that occurred two years ago, and if your answer differs to anybody else’s then its off to jail! A crazy high standard, only the enemies of the swamp are being held to.
