    Mueller seeks to question Trump about Flynn and Comey departures


    Trump talking under oath, what could possibly go wrong?

    "Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans.

    Mueller’s interest in the events that led Trump to push out Flynn and Comey indicates that his investigation is intensifying its focus on possible efforts by the president or others to obstruct or blunt the special counsel’s probe.

    Trump’s attorneys have crafted some negotiating terms for the president’s interview with Mueller’s team, one that could be presented to the special counsel as soon as next week, according to the two people."

    If I were Trump, I'd tell Mueller to get fucked. He's under ZERO obligation to talk to him.

    Sure..but the optics are horrible..and having Mueller supeana Trump..looks worse.

    It does bring up an interesting question though.

    Who is the President accountable too? Legally accountable.

    Solely the US Senate?

    Trump has already publicly admitted he fired Comey to get the Russia monkey off his back. That is Obstruction of Justice, and this is explicitly included in Mueller's brief.
    Is the President immune from criminal prosecution?

    The only reason Trump hasn't immediately arrested Mueller is that he need to have a Corleone Baptist Event against all the enemies aligned against him. He can't take any half steps.

    I agree.
    Now, and it has been for some time, this is a case about obstruction and perjury..possibility of some good old malfeasance, thrown in for good measure.
    This is Mueller's endgame..get Trump in a room where he is legally responsible if he lies.

    I predict a long, long sequence of Executive Privilege claims ala Reagan and Iran-Contra.

    Youre trusting an orange con-man over a decorated Vietnam war veteran.
