Why Trump should take the interview with Mueller

January 29, 2018

Numerous legal experts have strongly advised that President Trump avoid an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller at all costs. They’re correct in saying that even someone totally innocent concerning matters under investigation can be trapped or confused into stating an unwitting “lie” and then be charged with that. Investigators may very well have that goal in mind, especially since it appears they still have no evidence of actual collusion with Russia.

But if Mueller wants to interview him, as he reportedly does, the President faces a choice: either sit down for the interview with his attorney at his side, or be subpoenaed and testify under oath before a Washington DC grand jury with no lawyer at all. Hard to tell which would be more viciously anti-Trump, top FBI personnel like Peter Strzok or the typical Washington DC grand jury –- and under subpoena, he’d be dealing with both! At least with a voluntary interview, he’d have one friend (his lawyer) in the room. Isn’t that’s what you’d choose?

An excellent piece that ran in the Daily Caller offers three good reasons why it’s in Trump’s best interest to go ahead and sit for an interview with Mueller. After reading this summary, I think you’ll agree…

    I would agree a voluntary sit down seems best option given the choices but given the illegal nature of the investigation to begin with someone should be questioning Mueller in my opinion. He needs to answer for his involvement in the fake information and the rules he violated with the fake "dossier" and now 2 of those along with the cover up of it all.

    It seems to me it would be a good idea for the president to sit down with Mueller, but especially with a very strong, loud attorney right beside him. I have not doubt of Trump's innocence in this whole fiasco and I have no doubt he can defend himself with his ability to speak out. But at the same time, he does have that ability to speak out in a way that ruffles feathers, and gives the nonsense crowd ammunition. He needs someone to stop him who has some political restraint.
