I really love this talking point by Rudy and friends that Trump might get caught in a perjury trap. Rudy just admitted Trump is a liar and can’t tell the truth. So sure, if he’s under oath and he tries to lie, I guess that is perjury. But it won’t be Mueller’s fault.
This whole game of “will he or won’t he” speak to Mueller is a smokescreen anyway. He won’t and everyone knows it – except for Trumpettes, apparently. He has no intention of it.
And they still haven’t figured out that Rudy is not helping him. But hey, keep talking Rudy. Keep opening your big mouth.
There are legitimate questions needing answers, and then there is Trump who can’t help himself from knowing when to shut up and or when not to say any old thing that he wants to say.
The ones promoting the notion of a “perjury trap” with regards Trump testifying under oath seem to me to be tacitly admitting that was how Republicans finally caught Bill Clinton after 4 years of Kenneth Starr coming up with bumpkus.
I’ve heard analysts say it’s all a game to undermine Mueller, which would go along with other things they’ve been trying to pull. But I don’t see that completely since Mueller will do his job anyway. I don’t really think he needs Trump, but if Trump is as innocent as some people say, he should just get 'er done, as Larry the Cable Guy would say.
I now believe Fat Donald doesn’t want to have the Mueller investigation reveal just how colluded his campaign was with the Russians if not in successfully securing hard material at the very least in conspiring at collusion to obtain the valuable goods of such things as stolen DNC and Clinton e-mails.
He doesn’t want this causing any doubt to be cast on his chance to be reelected.
He doesn’t want his administration to go down in the history books as the most vile and corrupt administration ever, EVER!
He doesn’t want his Presidential Library to end up being some dingy rooms in a Federal Penitentiary.
It is one thing to be somewhat shielded as a sitting President, but he has to know his family and his fat ass are fair game for criminal indictments and trials and imprisonment once he is out of office.
