Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 26, 2018

Donald Trump's own lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, distanced himself from his client's suggestion that it "almost ought to be illegal" for "flippers" to get plea deals in exchange for their testimony. ... That's just some of the fallout from a 12-minute interview that aired Thursday morning on Fox and Friends. It was Trump's most problematic sit-down since he told NBC's Lester Holt last year that the Russia investigation was indeed on his mind when he fired James Comey as FBI director -- undercutting the official explanation from White House officials. It underscored why Trump's legal team has become so determined to stop special counsel Bob Mueller from getting access, specifically demanding that questions related to potential obstruction of justice be off limits in any presidential interview.

Trump's lawyers say they're afraid Mueller will lay "a perjury trap," but the Fox hit shows Trump probably doesn't need to be coaxed like some bear in the backwoods of Maine with doughnuts. He seems perfectly capable of entangling himself in potential legal and political jeopardy with little prompting.

Because Trump will have to open his mouth.

I wouldn't let him submit to an interview either, and if any lawyer did it would be malpractice.

Damn! I want to see Trump put on his lawyer hat (because he has so much experience) and go toe to toe with Mueller.

Because he's a pathological liar and a malignant narcissist. And he'll either perjure himself or admit criminal behavior, because there is no other option.

And that's just during an interview on Fox!

Maybe Trump will explain all the misunderstandings and lingering questions in an articulate straight forward way which lay everyone's fears to rest. Maybe we will all be apologizing to him for being so suspicious.

...And maybe pigs will fly to watch Hell freezing over.

"Maybe Trump will explain all the misunderstandings and lingering questions in an articulate straight forward way which lay everyone's fears to rest."

I hate to tell you this but Trump's type of insanity tends to get worse over time ~ not better. We might even find him curled up in a corner at Mar-a-Lago with his thumb in his mouth and clutching his putter.

Donald J. Trump is a pathological LIAR, a DEFECTIVE PERSON who was elected?????? with the help of super-rich •••clowns and Russia. His testimony is essential in resolving the LEGITIMACY of his Presidency, once and for all.

If that were the case, then his lawyers would be falling over themselves to have him testify.

More likely, though, is that Pres Trump will be the way he has been for decades...

RightO with #1 and Danforth with #3 summed it up beautifully.

Donnie couldn't read a random dictionary page aloud without lying.

Snakes gotta crawl, birds gotta fly. Fish gotta swim, Donnie gotta lie.

By the way, MODER8

I'm sure it was unintentional but you should never use the words "Trump" and "articulate" in the same post . . . or even within weeks of each other.

"with his thumb in his mouth and clutching his putter."

Is that what Stormy is calling it these days?

"Is that what Stormy is calling it these days?"

No, she usually just points to that last digit on the end of her little finger.

Trump is not an aberration of the republican party, he is the net product they have worked for years to produce.

Don't be fooled by the asshats here.

Trump is the Embodiment of their political desires. They pretend, (now) they don't like him, but he is just doing what they have been advocating for, for decades now

Never forget, you so called "conservatives"

You Built Trump and His Base, and you own it all lock, stock, and barrel

Why Trump Lawyers Fear Mueller Interview

Because Humpy is a compulsive Liar and compulsive Liars perjure all over themselves.

Hillary lasted 11 hours without perjuring herself.

Humpy wouldn't last one hour.
