Wait, what?

Courtesy of NYT:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, eased up slightly on his demands to question President Trump in the Russia investigation, a shift that came as the president’s lawyers, who have advised him against sitting for an interview, are fighting his desire to answer investigators’ queries.

Mr. Mueller will accept written answers from Mr. Trump on questions about whether his campaign conspired with Russia’s election interference, Mr. Mueller’s office told the president’s lawyers in a letter, two people briefed on it said on Tuesday.

On another significant aspect of the investigation — whether the president tried to obstruct the inquiry itself — Mr. Mueller and his investigators understood that issues of executive privilege could complicate their pursuit of a presidential interview and did not ask for written responses on that matter, according to the letter, which was sent on Friday.

Mr. Mueller did not say that he was giving up on an interview altogether, including on questions of obstruction of justice. But the tone of the letter and the fact that the special counsel did not ask for written responses on obstruction prompted some Trump allies to conclude that if an interview takes place, its scope will be more limited than Mr. Trump’s legal team initially believed, the people said.

Now if you are at all like me you probably read this and immediately went “Nooooooooooo!!!!”

However, after I read this I did a little research on the old internet and learned that Mueller has not committed to having ALL of Trump’s answers submitted in writing, you know after his attorney’s write them up for him, and that he, in fact, may not even need Trump’s responses in order to prove his case. 

Currently, Mueller is sitting on potentially hundreds of hours of testimony from all kinds of people, including members of Trump’s inner circle and his White House attorney, so if there were evidence of collusion with Russia or evidence of obstructionism, Mueller already has it. 

So the only purpose of having Trump sit down for an interview would be to give him the opportunity to perjure himself, which of course we all know he is absolutely certain to do. 

However to make the case that Trump knowingly collaborated with the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election, or the case that Trump then attempted to cover up his cooperation with the Russians, is likely something that Mueller already has in the bag. 

And if that is included in Mueller’s report scheduled to come out, I believe, next month, then the ball gets handed to the courts and to the Congress, which hopefully will look much different after the November elections. 

In other words, this thing ain’t over til it’s over.

    If only. If only they’d not allow Drumpf’s staff and lawyers write his answers for him. Make the shitgibbon write them himself. That would really go a long way to showing how ignorant he is.

    They would have a hard time finding crayons small enough for those tiny hands. Does Crayola make them in XXXXXX small?

    So Trump gets to take the special needs version of the sit down exam with Mueller. And he’ll even cheat on that, and hand in answers that his lawyers wrote for him. Bet he still manages to fuck it up.

    When looking at a close-up of Donald Trump his eye pupils always look dilated. Has anyone else noticed that too?

    Don the Con’s not going to prepare the responses himself. Every conservative lawyer in Washington and beyond will have his mitts involved in the responses. Even if Don the Con signs the finished responses, no one will have any reason to believe that he prepared them. He lies as easily as he breathes.

    remember when you took a test in school? no talking, eyes only on your paper, teacher watching, ect. trump needs to take a “test” like that. in front of Mueller. no cheating.

    I read that this is really the way to get trump to perjury himself,after all unless his attorneys were present at the time related to the question, they will have to ask little donnie what happened and mueller already has other witnesses answers.

    Another thought is this will give little donnie the confidence that he has pulled one over on mueller so easily,he will want to testify in person and he gets caught perjuring himself.

    I watch quite a few cartoons in my days with the kids. It reminds me of a Spongebob episode where Spongebob tried to teach his friend Patrick a skill. After so many fails Spongebob finally gives Patrick a jar to open. But Patrick is still too dense and Spongebob is enunciating “turn the lid” to which Patrick still has a hard time learning simple instruction. This is how I imagine it is to teach Trump anything with someone standing over his shoulder and talking in a loud, concise tones.

    Exactly. This is about him perjuring himself. They have no idea what Mueller has and Trump can’t tell the truth. It will be in writing where he can’t deny it. This played right into Mueller’s hands

    It doesn’t matter if Trumps lawyers answers the questions for him. They will be lies because
    Trump lies to his own lawyers. Good times.
