The Mueller investigation is reaching its end game.
The final piece of the puzzle is an interview with the President.
And Robert Mueller finally showed his true intentions with how he responded to Trump’s proposal.
Trump’s legal team had proposed the President would submit to written questions from the special counsel.
There is precedent for such an arrangement.
Ronald Reagan submitted written answers to the Iran-Contra special prosecutor’s questions.
But Mueller rejected this good faith offer from the President.
CBS News reports:
“Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now on President Trump’s legal team, told CBS News correspondent Paula Reid Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s office has rejected proposals to allow Mr. Trump to answer questions from investigators in writing.”
This decisions makes one thing perfectly clear.
Mueller is only interested in trying set a perjury trap for the President.
The special counsel wants to fire hundreds of questions over what could end up being a 12 hour interview in the hopes Trump misstates or misremembers a fact.
That would allow Mueller to claim Trump lied to investigators and that he should be impeached.
Mueller is not an investigator out to determine the facts.
He is a single-minded zealot whose only goal is to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States.
The President’s legal team is continuing negotiations over an interview with Trump.
But Trump supporters believe Mueller rejecting this offer is a clear sign that the President should not sit for an interview with an individual who is a committed opponent of his Presidency.
Mueller may subpoena the President, but Trump should fight it all the way to the Supreme Court and even consider defying an unfavorable ruling.
Nothing less than the separation of powers – Mueller is an executive branch employee who essentially works for Trump – and the idea that the American people have the right to pick their own leaders without the establishment unleashing a prosecutor to invent grounds to undo the election results are at stake.
