There is no scenario where Trump walks in, says what he has to say, and doesn't end up being charged with some form of perjury on top of whatever else Robert Mueller plans to hit him with:
Robert Mueller wants to talk to Donald Trump. The President wants to talk to the special counsel -- so it's a done deal right?
Trump appeared on Wednesday to make a significant gesture by telling reporters that he wanted to testify to Mueller -- and was ready to do so under oath.
His offer came a day after it emerged that the Mueller had requested an interview with the President as he apparently begins to wind up one branch of his investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey while he was probing alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
"I am looking forward to it, actually," Trump said, before offering a preview of what his testimony might look like.
I just don't get why people are not assuming that Trump has to resign when Mueller is finished with his investigation. Can he and his supporters be allowed to eliminate the legitimacy of the rule of law in this country? Is it really going to come down to this man having to be carried out of the White House strapped upright on a dolly? This is not some minor thing--this is absolutely the biggest political scandal of the last hundred years. This is a watershed moment in American history--are we a republic, or are we some crazy banana republic, run by a caudillo with strange hair?
If Trump were a Democrat, he'd already be in prison. Of this, I am certain.
