Don’t Talk To Mueller

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 26, 2017

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING HE MAY LIVE TO REGRET. HE HAS AGREED TO BE INTERVIEWED UNDER OATH BY SPECIAL COUNSUL ROBERT MUELLER. MUELLER IS SUPPOSED TO BE INVESTIGATING ALLEGED COLLUSION BETWEEN RUSSIA AND THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN DURING THE 2016 ELECTION.

         SPECULATORS SAY MUELLER IS NOW FOCUSING ON OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. THE QUESTION IS: HOW CAN JUSTICE BE OBSTRUCTED IF THERE IS NO CRIME? SOME LEGAL MINDS SAY IT’S POSSIBLE.

         THE PRESIDENT MAY THINK HE HAS NOTHING TO HIDE, SO WHY NOT TELL ALL TO MUELLER? BUT THAT’S NOT THE WAY THESE THINGS WORK. EXPERIENCED PROSECUTORS AND FBI AGENTS KNOW HOW TO TRAP SUBJECTS INTO MAKING MISTAKES, CONTRADICTING THEMSELVES ABND EVEN LYING IN ORDER TO GET AN INDICTMENT. TRUMP HAS NEVER DONE THIS SORT IOF THING AT THIS LEVEL. HE MAY THINK THAT TALKING TO INVESTIGATORS AS A BUSINESSMAN GIVES HIM THE EXPERIENCE HE NEEDS. HE HAS NO CLUE WHAT HE IS ABOUT TO FACE.

         I HOPE HE AND HIS LAWYERS HAVE A STRATEGY. IF THEY DON’T AND THE PRESIDENT IS RELYING ON HIS PERSONALITY TO STAY OUT OF TROUBLE, THAT IS A PRETTY GOOD SIGN HE IS HEADED FOR TROUBLE. HE’S MAKING A SERIOUS MISTAKE. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
