  1. Sure he has a choice. Mueller submits questions in writing, and President Trump provides Mueller written replies.

    If they want to talk to him, he tells them its the same chat around the coffee table Hillary got.

    1. Well, no matter what the president does or does not do, you know he's going to be insulted, excoriated, vilifed,lampooned and mercilessly condemned by the ENEMEDIA.

      Many supposedly on "our side" (AHEM!) would like to believe Mr. Trump to be little more than an ill-iinformed, empty-headed blowhard, drunk on hubris with little to offer but braying bravado.

      Mounting evidence says to me, however, that he is utterly fearless, and takes real JOY in combatting the fools and fiends who would like to bring him down so they could spit all over his kicking screaming remains in the gutter.

      So far, Mr. Trump has been highly successful in defying all the odds supposedly amassed against him. I say "BRAVO! THANK YOU, Mr. PRESIDENT! and MORE POWER TO YOU, good sir."

      It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, won't it?

    2. FT,

      I'm sick of that broken record played over and oever again by the Enemedia.

    3. I agree, AOW. In fact I no longer listen to ANY of the News Shows and bother only to scan HEADLINES for that very reason. FOX, Alas! is no better, and "Talk Radio" too merely echoes every other broken record.

      It is as though the obsessive-compulsive desire to "GET TRUMP AT ALL COSTS" has paralyzed the inellectulal capacity of the entire nation, and rendered it null and void.

      Fortunately, the men and women who clean the win.dows, sweep the floors, polish the handle of the big grin door, grow, harvest, distribute and cook the food, build, repair and maintain our houses, cars, and other necessary equipment have neither the TIME nor the INCLINATION to clutter their thoughts with such enervating, mind-numbing TRIVIA (still the polite word for HORSESHIT! ;-)

      Our president too, whose respect for and symapthies lie with the Working Class, oddly enough is able to rise above the fray, becaise he too is a BUILDER, a VIGOROUS POSITIVE THINKER, and a highly PRODUCTIVE individual who knows BALONEY when he sees it, BULLSHIT when he smells it, and has no problem at all with CALLING a SPADE a SPADE.

      Much to my surprise I have found his manner, his methods and his personality so REFRESHING as to be vrtually INTOXICATING.

    4. @ FreeThinke: "...takes real JOY in combatting the fools and fiends who would like to bring him down..."

      I think you're right. He relishes the bloody combat, and so far he has played his enemies like the stooges they are.

      Everyone who thought they "had" El Donaldo, had him beaten or cornered, ended up with egg on their face, a bloody nose, or embarrassed.

      So far, I think its clear he has been about five steps ahead of his enemies, throwing out little bits of catnip for haters so he can chuckle and gloat when they run into a wall or fall in a hole.

  2. Why should Trump be interview by a bunch of shark lawyers , whom if not all were HIllary supporters. It sounds most definitely as a trap to somehow trip him up. Love my President! Think he always gives great speeches. But, when it comes to interviews or speaking freely he is not the most articulate. Also, he is under no obligation to speak with Mueller. If he ( Mueller) needs certain questions answered have them written down and submitted to Trumps lawyers who can write the responses and hand them back to the special council.

  4. I agree with the "Dude" above.
    Should President Trump meet with Mueller? Absolutely NOT! Trump has nothing to gain by allowing Mueller to interview so the answer is easy NO.
    He should never ever give them a reason find something.

    First of all, Mueller will never ask President Trump a question that he doesn’t already know the answer to … so the point of the interview is only an opportunity for Mueller to screw Trump

    Mueller knows there is nothing there so he is trying to pave the way for an obstruction charge or a lying to the Feds... It is their only hope at any charge against Trump at this point and he should avoid it.
    And this most certainly, obviously, is unbelievably a trap, Trump should not be giving them Squat, Nothing, Nada!

  5. Personally, I find the very idea of a "special Prosecutor" unconstitutional. If Congress wants to impeach the President, let them do so with their own resources (staff) and at their own "expense". Embedding this function within DOJ and the FBI gave rise to all this secret-club collusion and "deep state" cabals.

    1. AGREED! The idea of a "Special Prosecutor" was invented out of whole cloth by the DemonRats when they in cahoots with The WASHINGTON POST –– the Ur-Engine of the emerging ENEMEDIA once more formally known as "The Fourth Estate" –– to destroy the presidency of Richard Nixon who had just won reelection in possibiy the greatest landslide victory in our history.

      The People may Speak all they like, but more and more –– since Watergate –– The unholy, anti-democratic, anti-constitutional alliance among members of the Deep State, the ENEMEDIA and Party Establishment Forces, has taken it upon itself to say, "NO WAY! to electorate whom they obviously despise and whose constitutinally guaranteed authority they reject.

      Because of this ungodly, scheming, self-appointed, self-serving Power Bloc the People of these United States have been rendered virtually powerless in what has amounted to a coup d'etat by stealth.

      As THOMAS JEFFERSON (1743-1826) said:

      "What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

      “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

      Much as it pains me to say it, if the jackals and dirty, treacherous bastards succeed in unseating President Trump, the time may well be ripe once again for a bloody uprising –– a return of poliical power to its LEGITIMATE owners by dint of MAIN FORCE.

    2. So, what you're saying is, now the people fear their government, and therefore you're suggesting armed rebellion if the evidence points to impeachment and removal of Trump. Even given the process of doing both is part of the framework put in place by the founders. Curious to say the least.

      Perhaps you should consider advocating a secession movement in your state, build an organization around it, create support for it, and when your Power to the MAIN FORCE has the power in your state legislature draft and present your states Declaration of Independence from the USA.

      I for one would support you in your efforts if you took this course of action. At least you'd be doing it right.

  6. Mueller doesn't want to let go of the cash cow known as a special investigator.

    1. Are you saying that all that cash flows DIRECTLY into Mueller's very own pocket?

      I somehow doubt that, but I am reasonably sure that NO ONE in Mueller's present position EVER wants to let go of the enormous POWER they enjoy.

      POWER, I believe, is likely to be more intoxicating –– and probably more ADDICTIVE –– than mere MONEY.

      Delete
    2. I'm thinking that Mueller gets paid to be a special investigator -- plus the fame that goes with a job.

      HERE is a bit of information about his finances.

      Meanwhile, the cost to taxpayers for all this investigating has topped $5 million.

  7. Say what one might, but, Trump is doing what he does exceptionally well, manipulating the media. He is setting the stage so when he exits he comes off looking like the winner. His attorneys will simply adjust or rearrange as necessary.

      I happen to KNOW a number of Mexicans who are far superior to MANY native-born Americans. These people are gracious, polite, warm-hearted, genersou toa fault, hardworking and productive .

      When you insult THEM you also insult ME and my JUDGMENT.

      It is people like YOU who EXACERBATE tensions and increase aggravation to the point where it could lead to VIOLENCE.

    American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

    Once again, President Trump is shaping the national discussion to his advantage. He intervened in a background briefing for White House media being conducted by General Kelly to make on-the-record (but off-camera) comments to the media and appears to have shocked many with his comment: “I would love to do it, and I would like to do it as soon as possible” (snip) Now that his severest critics have taken the positon that, yes, it is risky to speak directly, that perjury traps can be laid, his lawyers can reasonably hold that the interrogation should be limited.

    8 times since June the WhitHouse denied Trump
    was considering firing Mueller


    CNN, by By Marshall Cohen and Aileen Graef,

    President Donald Trump considered firing special counsel Robert Mueller last June, but backed down after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit, a person familiar with the matter told CNN. Since then, Trump and his allies have repeatedly denied that the President had ever considered firing Mueller, who is tasked with investigating Russian interference in the 2016 US elections and any possible collusion with Trump´s campaign. The President has repeatedly denied any collusion. Here´s a list of eight times since June 2017 that Trump and his team have denied that Mueller´s job is in danger: August 6, 2017 ---

    Trump’s Effort to Fire Mueller: Reactions to the New York Times Report

    LAWFARE

    by Susan Hennessey and Quinta Jurecic

    The New York Times reported Thursday evening that President Trump ordered the firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in June and was only dissuaded when White House Counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign rather than transmit the order to the Justice Department. Mueller has reportedly become aware of the attempt to dismiss him in the course of investigating possible obstruction of justice by Trump and his associates. According to the Times, Trump claimed that multiple conflicts of interests disqualified Mueller from overseeing the Russia investigation—including a fee dispute with a Trump golf club, * * *

  12. Hillary lost because she vowed to continue the failed policies of Obama. People did not want another 8 years of "Hope" and "Change"; continued failed policies in the Mid-East; Tuesday drone days which were Satanic --[ who do we kill today ??]. Also, people hated the previous 8 years under Bush and Cheney (who should have been jailed or impeached). People are not married to political parties, this is not business as usual. As a Democrat, I refused to vote for Hillary because of her war-mongering stance against Putin and Russia. (I did not vote for Trump either, I did a write-in candidacy that caused all hell to break loose at my polling place, with poll people trying to tell me that I could not do that -- they lied, I did it, and I walk away with dignity). I am a Senior Citizen, and I plan to live a lot longer, and do not want to have Dr.Strangelove run the world into Nuclear War. She never should have been Sec'y of State (Benghazi, among other horrific things like the murder of Qaddafy. As for being a woman, I did not see her as the great Indira Gandhi, but as the broomstick riding Margaret Thatcher. I hope Trump goes with Glass-Steagall, as that is the only way there will be REAL CHANGE & REAL HOPE FOR A BETTER AMERICA

  13. "President Donald Trump ordered special counsel Robert Mueller to be fired last year but backed down after the White House's top attorney threatened to resign, according to a source familiar with the issue. White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to quit after Trump pushed the idea of firing Mueller in June, the source said. In a statement, Ty Cobb, the White House attorney who is focused on the Russia investigation, said, "We decline to comment out of respect for the Office of the Special Court”

    Also very shortly afterward, he called Dominoes and ordered Two Pizzas with Meatballs, and Extra Cheese!

    1. ...and why would he threaten to resign? Because he was worried he'd get "Borked"? Because he made his living as a DC lawyer and knew that liberals would never let him work again as a lawyer if he did anything to diminish the "power" of DC lawyers like Mueller to "operate with impunity" in the pursuit of power.

    “For the first time in the course of his duties, a U.S. President, Donald Trump, declared his solidarity with members of the March for Life, and officially declared that for the U.S. January 22 stands as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. For that humanitarian gesture in defense of moral-ethical values and the sanctity of life starting at conception the institutions International Center for the Defense of Human Life and the Lawton Foundation for Human Rights have the honor of awarding President Donald Trump their highest award: “The Medal of Life.” Don’t bother looking for this in the Mainstream Media, amigos.

  16. It could be after Hillary paid all the money for the FAKE DOSSIER that Russia did cause her to lose. When I heard that Russia had something to do with election I was more determined to vote against Hillary. They tried paying women to lie, they had the FAKE NEWS network and the ones that were rioting and still could not win. I would think it would make people realize we are tired of B.S.

    Dershowitz: ‘There Is No Credible Case’ Of Obstruction Against Trump.

    The special counsel is trying to build special counsel case. There is no credible case because under the Constitution a president cannot be charged merely exercising his constitutional authority under article 2. What senator Blumenthal referred to is cases are a president destroys evidence. There is no evidence of that. That’s what president Nixon did. Nixon was charged with obstruction of justice for ordering his underlings to lie to the FBI. Paying hush money. And destroying evidence. President Clinton was charged with obstruction for allegedly lying to the grand jury at a deposition. But if the president simply exercised his constitutional authority, namely firing underlings, which is he entitled to do telling the FBI not to investigate a particular person which he is entitled to do, pardoning people which he hasn’t done yet thinking about whether he should fire special counsel, that’s not obstruction of justice under the Constitution."

    Various people want Trump impeached because they disagree with his policies. Such disagreement is not Constitutional grounds for impeachment.

  21. People who want a candidate who isn’t a Washington insider, yet will question their experience as in Sarah Palin who actually has more executive experience than Barack Obama, Joe Biden and John McCain combined. She also has more foreign policy experience than Barack Obama and HE is running for President! (Yes, just negotiating with Canada alone, beats Obama who has negotiated with ZERO countries.)= IDIOT

    * Supporting a candidate who supports and represents a radical illegal organization that commits major voting fraud,” ACORN.” This cancels out knowledgeable voters and legitimate voters who obey the law and play by the rules. We have ACORN employees on video telling how they were ordered to register AND ENCOURAGE voters to vote democrat. But Barack Obama doesn’t care, as long as he says and does anything to get elected and drive us into disaster for America. = IDIOT

    * Supporting a candidate who claims to represent “hope and change” yet requested over 900 million dollars in earmarks for radical associates and convicted felons. Yes, this makes you an idiot and it isn’t just an opinion. Supporting a candidate who voted against warnings on the housing market and took the 2nd highest amount of campaign contributions from the very same organizations that drove us into a recession makes you an idiot. Supporting a candidate whose economic advisor Patrick Gaspard, and Van Jones a self admitted Communist, makes you an idiot.

  22. I’ve been watching the Sunday News shows this morning and I was looking for the Democrat midterm message. But all I found was that NOTHING has changed! It’s the same old Name Calling BS. From the same old idiotic Looney Tunes..

    What I found was Nancy Pelosie calling names and saying everyone who wants National Security, Immigration Reform and a Wall are RACIST’S... I found Nancy Pelosie screaming about how YOU the American people SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO KEEP YOUR EARNINGS and Governors Brown and Cumo taking over 50% of the tax cuts. Then we have Chuck Shummer telling us that Illegals are more important than citizens of the US...
    So my take this morning from all that is:

    If you don't think like a Liberal Democrat you’re a RACIST...
    If you received a Tax Cut your not entitled to your own money, It belongs to Democrats who are far more intelligent in how to spend it than you are...

    IF you want border security you’re a RACIST...

    All those people who came here ILLEGALLY and VIOLATED our LAWS are more important than Legal Citizens and we should let them all in... And if you don't think like the Democrats want you too, once again you’re a RACIST

    If this your plan you idiots are running on? I hope that you are, because America is pissed off, and we are NOT going to take it anymore!.
