Let's see his tax returns. We locked Capone up for tax evasion.

"Corky reporting, embedded in Trump's hair. Back to you, Andrea Mitchell."

You can never run away from fraud or murder. But as we've seen with Cosby and Kavanaugh we are not all treated equally under the law. This problem is widespread throughout the world.

The thing is any good prosecutor wont ask a defendant any question they don't already know the answer to. Trump acts as if nobody knows anything until he tells them what to think. He is going to learn the hard way that alternative facts don't work in court

If answered to the benefit of the president, the answers will likely put him in conflict with information that Mueller already has. Trump's attorneys know this and are probably being twisted into knots wordsmithing their responses so as to avoid legal jeopardy for the president. Have you noticed that Giuliani has been absent from TV for a while?

" Have you noticed that Giuliani has been absent from TV for a while?"

I was just thinking the same thing yesterday.

"Trump's attorneys . . . are probably being twisted into knots wordsmithing their responses so as to avoid legal jeopardy for the president."

LOL ~ No doubt true, but in the end, that will be Kavanaugh's job.

" avoid legal jeopardy for the president."

LOL ~~ and perhaps for themselves as well. They're not allowed to lie to the feds. And they're not allowed to condone lying by their client either.

Trump is the Freddy Kruger of clients. Their worst nightmare.

QUESTION for any legal beagle on this thread:

How does an attorney(s), no matter how well paid, turn a pathological liar and known ---------------- sympathizer like Trump into a paragon of truth, virtue and pure as the driven snow?

Prove that something is true. Something that was questionable and even trump supporters were skeptical as to the truth......make it true. Trump can still be a liar in everything else....just make something true.

That doesn't sound right.

The media has been parroting this Giuliani line for the last six months. When will they stop?

--known ---------------- sympathizer like Trump

Trump is a communist sympathizer now? Hahahaha. I thought he was a Nazi sympathizer or even a Nazi. Funny stuff, especially considering The left have been communist sympathizers since 1917.

It will work. Perhaps you're seeing this through the eyes of someone who will never believe him no matter what.

I'm not talking about people who are steadfast in either their support or lack of support. I'm taking about folks who can be convinced trump can tell the truth some of the time.

"I'm not talking about people who are steadfast in either their support or lack of support. I'm taking about folks who can be convinced trump can tell the truth some of the time."

His record for lying is much longer than his record for telling the truth. That should be reason enough to be skeptical about anything he says.

Still too scared to sit down for an interview under oath?

Both Clintons did.

Oh sorry. Such things are ONLY for Democrats.

Can you even imagine Trump grilled for 11 hours in public by a Sen Committee investigating him?

All that would be left; a steaming puddle of hot lying fat.

I'm thinking more about a common law that would apply to Trump lying to the feds, with or without taking an oath.

"Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus is a Latin phrase meaning "false in one thing, false in everything." At common law, it is the legal principle that a witness who testifies falsely about one matter is not credible to testify about any matter."
‎Origins · ‎Contemporary usage

That seems to blow holes your theory of the exact opposite.

I'm curious about who is actually preparing the answers to Mueller's questions.

Giuliani's unexplained disappearance from public view lately would indicate that he's been assigned the job.

Plus I can't picture any other attorney (of repute) putting his legal career on the line for subornation of perjury, not even for Trump.

Giuliani, on the other hand, only has one client and would sell his soul to sycophant himself into McGahn's job.

Giuliani is also the only attorney on Trump's legal team who thinks he's smarter than Mueller.

Yep ~ the fickel finger of fate seems to be pointing directly at Giuliani.

Every time I see Giuliani, he reminds me of Danny DeVito when he played the Penguin.
