So, the New York Times has published a list of 49 questions purported to be the ones special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump. Here is a completely hypothetical response to Mueller that I would dearly love to see from Trump. Here, New York Times:

Dear Mr. Mueller:

I have just seen the long list of questions in the New York Times that are alleged to be from you. Since the Times has occasionally been known to print leaked material that turns out to be incorrect, I don’t know if these really are the questions you intend for me or not. But in case they are, I have to say that they are ridiculously open-ended (Witch Hunt!!) and would take many hours to answer fully, and I kind of have a lot on my plate right now, what with working to end the Korean War, secure the border against an incoming hoard and figure out what to do about those lyin’ Iranians who clearly are on the path to nuclear bombs. I hear you don’t care about this and may want to subpoena me. Before you take that step, though, I have a request: answer this list of just 10 similarly open-ended questions I have for YOU.

1. Do you agree with James Comey’s remark in his interview with George Stephanopoulos that he still doesn’t know if the Steele “dossier” is true?

2. Since the facts in the dossier are “salacious and unverified,” as Comey directly admitted to me, do you think it was right for the FBI to use it before a FISA court to obtain warrants to spy on campaign associates of mine?

3. When Peter Strzok was on your team, did you ever have conversations with him about me? Detail everything you ever discussed with him before, during and after he was on your team, including any mention of the election outcome, texting or insurance policies.

4. Why did you put Andrew Weissmann on your team of lawyers, knowing full well that he has a storied history of withholding exculpatory evidence, even to the point of having a conviction he'd overseen being unanimously overturned by the Supreme Court? Did that make you more or less likely to want him investigating me?

5. What was going through your mind when two of the four innocent men you helped to wrongly incarcerate in Boston died behind bars?

6. Do you agree with the FBI’s decision to interview Hillary Clinton about mishandling classified material without swearing her in or even making a transcript and then letting the “matter” drop, and is that how you intend to handle my case?

7. If you found out that I had deleted about 33,000 emails that you had subpoenaed, would you charge me with obstruction of justice, or would you and your staff work together to craft a memo exonerating me weeks before you had even interviewed me?


Commentary continues below advertisement


8. I realize that lawyers as a group tend to “lean left,” but could you not find any Republicans to put on your team? How hard did you look to find even one person who was just fine with the way the 2016 election turned out?

9. You went to law school --- do you understand that, as President, I have the constitutional authority to fire at will the director of the FBI (which both Republicans and Democrats cited ample reason to do) or the attorney general (which I have refrained from doing, despite the fact that Jeff Sessions is MIA) or the deputy attorney general (who is also still employed, despite raging conflicts of interest that should have prohibited him from appointing you) or even you (which I haven’t done simply because it might be wrongly interpreted as obstruction)?

10. Since the FBI was running a counterintelligence, rather than a criminal, investigation on Russia, do you ever wonder why a special counsel was appointed in the first place? That’s supposed to be for investigating crimes, and there was never any specific crime being investigated, so did you ever stop to think that maybe your job isn’t necessary, appropriate or even legal?

11. (Bonus question) Former FBI Director Comey said this on Monday, after telling an interviewer he thought he’d still be director of the FBI if Hillary had won: “Secretary Clinton is someone deeply enmeshed in the rule of law, respect for institutions, a lawyer, and so given that background, I’m reasonably confident that even though she was unhappy with the decisions the FBI had made, she would not fire the FBI director as a result.” What went through your mind when you heard this, and, if you were taking a drink of coffee, did you do a spit-take?”

There, Mr. Mueller. I realize you’re very busy trying to find obstruction of justice on my part –- even though there’s no justice for me to obstruct, since there’s no underlying crime –- so that’s why I left it at just 10 questions (plus the bonus) for you. Believe me, I can easily come up with more (we hardly even covered Rod Rosenstein), but we can start with these. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

President Donald J. Trump

PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT. I READ THEM! AND IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR MUELLER LEAVE IT BELOW!

    I love these questions. Here is another.
    Why is it nothing has ever been done or said about Obama and Hillary's dealings with Russia in regards to Uranium One or Obama's telling the Russian Diplomat that they could talk about things as soon as he got elected.

    My question is ---if President Trump is not under investigation----why is Mueller questioning his thoughts???----enough of this nonsense---quit already---too many tax dollars wasted------we've got many other fish to fry---we must support Trump and send him reinforcements to Congress as he asked.

    This Mueller investigation on Russian Collusion against our President should have been over many months ago and is hindering our President who is working hard to deal with everyday necessities that could damage our country.
    They want our President to fail in the worse way and the American people are fed up and time to end this investigation that never should have occurred. Even HRC who lost the election after one week joined the resistance movement against our President. What a sad thing to do for the loser of the election. I am so glad our President did not attend the correspondents dinner and where was the outrage when the so called comedian tried to embarrass our press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. What a disgrace. The people should have walked out when they heard those remarks but rather many smiled as they obviously thought it was funny. The Hamilton theatre Cast who tried to embarrass our VP Mike Pence and Family and told them they were not welcome there. I only wished the entire audience would have walked out and the cast never act again after saying what they did to our VP Elect at the time. Freedom of speech only goes so far and one day we are going to lose it when we allow comments like that to be spoken against our elected officials. Keep up the good work Mike we enjoy your comments and insight. By the way your Daughter is doing a terrific job as Press Secretary as she deals with some of the most ridiculous questions as they try to impeach our President. If it wasn't for Fox news I think we would all be brainwashed.

    Mr. Mueller.. You and your people have tried since President Trump WAS ELECTED BY WE THE PEOPLE to clean up the sad shape and corruption Obama left our Country in to Impeach him ! He and Hillary left 4 of our Benghazi Americans to be slaughtered slowly and NEVER sent for help. That's just 1 one the horrific things they did ! WHY do you protect Hillary when she refused to turn over thousands of emails that were subpoenaed and did her best to destroy them ? Why don't you investigate these proven criminals ? And her husband getting blow jobs in OUR oval office,,He was married AND PRESIDENT ! But you all look the other way. You and Comey and the rest of your hit men are a joke and you all will face justice..Because evil never prevails,,

    Please tell President Trump I have countless friends/associates who are behind him 100%. I admire the way he has held his ground through all the biased news the media has thrown at him. I want President Trump to know not many people could handle what he is going through. Please tell President Trump to continue staying steadfast and hold his ground. There are thousands and thousands of people who know you are doing a great job, as our President. The federal judges, who recently spoke out, for you, is what we need to hear and read. My prayers are with you, Mr. President.

    I think these questions are most appropriate and very worthy of consideration and way past time to turn the tables on these people. For far too long this nonsense has gone on-wasting time,taxpayer money and more importantly taxing the Presidents ability to get the job done. That in itself is a testament to how really good Trump is-that with all of these lies and innuendo and crap floating around he still has a better track record of accomplishment than the last 3 Presidents. Imagine what the country could get done without all of this crud going on! Not Bad Mr. President-Not too Bad at All!.

DEMS & REPUBS COLLUDING ! AND MORE ! AND THE LOCAL FBI AGENT WHO IS CONNECTED TO ALL THIS SUPPORTS THIS , & THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE DYNASTY WHO HAVE CONTROLLED AND DOMINATED ELECTIONS THRU PATRONAGE AND FAVORITES TO GAIN AND MAINTAIN CONTROL FOR DECADES BY SUPPORT FROM THE CORRUPT COUNTY ALL IN IT TOGETHER ! THERE ARE MORE THINGS THAT ARE ESSENTIAL TO BE INVESTIGATED FROM LONG BEFORE , THIS TIME AND LEADING TO PRESENT CHAOS !
    WHY HASN'T THIS BEEN EXPOSED BY FBI ? THE AGENT IN THIS AREA IS NOT STUPID ! BUT SUPPORTS THIS REGIME AND CONNECTIONS TO THE MOB , WHO FOR DECADES HAVE BEEN THE DRUG PROBLEM WE ALL KNOW AND TIED TO THE NATION'S OPIOID PROBLEM !

    Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! A spot-on response that points out the waste of time and money this special counsel is, looking to find a crime that doesn’t exist when the DOJ would have plenty to keep them busy if they looked toward Hillary, her cronies, the deep state!

  • Dorothy Lafortune

    05/03/2018 12:28 PM

    I would appreciate one more question be added to the list. Why did Mueller cover up a criminal complaint filed with his office on February 5, 2008? The cover up continues today. The OIG, during the tenure of Glen Fine, determined that my criminal complaint (standing on its own merit - no documents were sent) warranted review, attached. https://unmasker4maine.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/office-of-inspector-general-april-12-2007.pdf President Trump was sent the complaint to Mueller for his help and intervention, to no avail. And the same pattern in the FBI-DOJ continues against President Trump today. This Obstruction of Justice must end.

    Mr. Huckabee would have made an excellent president. Since that didn't happen I am sorry he wasn't brought into Mr. Trump's inner circle as an advisor or a cabinet member. I think it is a great idea to turn the tables on Mueller with open ended questions from Mr. Trump. It would be even greater if our president followed this advice. He might also ask since the FBI didn't seize the servers when the DNC reported that they had been hacked and then refused to turn them over, does Mr. Mueller plan to do anything about this? After all, can't have a Russian collusion investigation and ignore a security breach of this magnitude.

    How do we have a special council conducting an investigation when no specific crime is mentioned? Asst. Attorney General Rosenstein recommends that Pres. Trump fire Comey then appoints a special council, Mueller (Comey's former boss and buddy), to investigate why Trump fired Comey. Uhhhhh, sounds like a set up to me. If we had an honest media in this country, these clowns would be a national joke by now and on the way to federal prison. One last point; Mr. Trump should get an accurate account of what this Democrat witch hunt has cost the American taxpayer ($100 million and counting?) and tell that to the nation. The shocker price tag would because the Dems are sore losers would anger a lot of people even the ones who don't like Trump.

  • Jeri Kirby

    05/03/2018 08:56 AM

    I do not think President Trump needs to talk with Muller or anyone on his team, that said, my question to Muller is when are you going to stop spending tax payers money and close this investigation? Enough is enough, you have had over a year now and nothing has been found and in my opinion it needs to stop, go after the real guilty ones and put them in jail and stop wasting money and time on the innocent.

  • Jim Morin

    05/03/2018 07:41 AM

    President Trump should refuse to comply with a subpoena from mr. Muller. I see an opportunity to turn Lemons into Lemonade. The public is very getting tired of all the constant RUSSIA crap from by the Left wing Media. Left wingers love it but other think they are kuku. Take it all the way to the Supreme. If Republicans lose the majority in the midterms he's screwed anyway, so fight it all the way. Fight for America. fight for conservatives values. WE need to challenge Leftist on every issue, every day, don't concede anything and don't let left wingers control the conversation FIGHT BACK. Honesty, Integrity, Reliability are needed in Politics Now. The right won't provide that. We can.

    1. I agree with you, Mueller should be the one answering questions not Trump.
    2. Trump "should not" under any circumstances talk to Robert Mueller or any one on Mueller's team.
    3. Trump should fire Jeff Sessions immediately (way past due) he is in over his head!!!
    4. Hire an Ag that will fire Rob Rosentein and start prosecuting Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Rob Rosentein, Loretta Lynch, James Clapper, John Brennan, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Robert Mueller, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and many more (the list is long).
    5. Trump lawyers need to play offense not defense.
    6. It's time to restore law and order equally for everyone and to respect the Constitution.

    Love the questions. Mueller has a lot more to answer than President Trump. President Trump should insist on the interview being done in public and ask Mueller all the questions like a good boss should. Since there’s no crime, how much longer is he going to waist hard earned taxpayers money?

    Mr. President; You have no reason nor obligation to speak to Muller about anything. You are winning, especially with your voters. No one that is trying to get you to speak to him will vote for you anyway. If, Mr Muller was serious about fair play by Muller, he would have several persons, including but not limited to; in; the Justice Department and FBI, the Hillary campaign, the Democrat Party and all 3 of the National Security branches under investigation. He has not even acknowledged one out of any group. Tell them/him "NO".

    As an Australian who supports President Trump, I am disgusted at the erroneous & terrible way he is being treated by the Liberal Left & their supporters, the Liberal left media & the so-called "politically correct" hacks out there. These "people have no idea what the hate they spew is doing to the image of their country & the man himself. (What you put out is what you get back) Your questions are very good, but it should never have got this far! For someone who is taking just $1 for being in that position & doing the work he does, I probably would've walked out before now with the treatment he gets. I wish we had someone like the Donald here for Prime Minister, where he is also hated because of the Liberal media, but also has many supporters. Thanks to you & Sarah for sticking by your President!

    I think these questions are very right on point. Any answers he would give would only show the hypocrisy of him and all the left leaning media, agents, Congress and it doesn't have to be limited to Democrats. There are too many questions that go unanswered about Hillary Clinton that are much more evident of a crime than anything the swamp is trying to dream up.
    I think Hillary and Bill have too much evidence of wrong doing against all those in power and it scares them that that evidence will come out, and that is why they, Congress and DOJ won't do anything against Hillary/.

    05/02/2018 07:41 PM

    Mike, those are absolutely great questions and I think they need to be asked of him. This whole collusion, conspiracy or so called investigation reeks of the sewer system that it is. It is wrong morally, civilly and criminally in every way, shape and form. It is an embarrassment to our country and a waste of taxpayers money. President Trump hasn't had a fair shake and he for the most part has done everything he said that he would do in his campaign. How realistic is that? Not a single president in my lifetime outside of Ronald Reagan has accomplished so much in so little time with such an oppostion facing them. If he even conjured up a little more respect and acceptance from the so called Republicans that would amaze me. I truly believe that he is trying his earthly best to make America great again and I try to pray for him every day. Oh, on another note, how about that daughter of yours?! She is to be truly respected and appreciated for what she does and all the grief that she takes. You and the American people are truly blessed to have her. Please thank her on our behalf. I mean afterall, you trained her right?! God bless you and keep up the good work brother.
