Trump told reporters that he is looking forward to talking to Robert Mueller under oath, which suggests that he thinks that he can lie to the Special Counsel and get away with it.
As Ari Melber reported:
According to The New York Times:
He also said he would be willing to answer questions under oath, but not until after asking whether Hillary Clinton, his 2016 campaign rival, has spoken under oath to the F.B.I. in the investigation into her use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state. Mrs. Clinton gave a voluntary interview to investigators in July 2016.
Trump is being warned by people close to him that Mueller is “a killer,” and that he should stay away and not do a sit down with the Special Counsel. Instead of listening to the people who are trying to protect him, Trump upped the ante and is now willing to talk under oath.
The President is making the task of legal representation nearly impossible. Trump just cut his lawyers off at the knees by publicly agreeing to do the one thing that they absolutely did not want him to do.
Trump combination of arrogance and stupidity is going to destroy him, as the president is walking into a trap of his own creation, and there is nowhere for him to go, but down.
