Trump Weasels Out When Asked About Potential Mueller Interview, Repeats ‘No Collusion’

Over the weekend while he was at Camp David, Donald Trump was asked about meeting with Special Counsel Robert Mueller for an official interview regarding what he knows about Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump responded:

“It’s sort of like, when you’ve done nothing wrong, let’s be open and get it over with.”

But now, with Mueller getting ready to set a date for that interview, Trump is backing away, no doubt under the advice of his attorneys, who know that pathological liars do not need to be asked questions under oath. At a press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg Wednesday afternoon, Trump told reporters:

“We’ll see what happens. When they have no collusion … it seems unlikely that you’d even have an interview.”

And then Trump fell back on his hackneyed “Hillary did it!” defense:

“When you talk about interviews, Hillary Clinton had an interview where she wasn’t sworn in, she wasn’t given the oath, they didn’t take notes, they didn’t record and it was done on the Fourth of July weekend. That’s, perhaps, ridiculous, a lot of people looked at that as a very serious breach.”

Proving yet again that he’s mentally unstable, just a few seconds later Trump began spouting off another time:

“There was absolutely no collusion, everybody knows it. I’ve been in office for 11 months, for 11 months they’ve had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government, and it has hurt our government.”

But wait! There was even more:

“It is a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that frankly the Democrats should have won because they have such a tremendous advantage in the Electoral College.”

Trump is certainly under no obligation to voluntarily submit to an interview with Mueller or members of his team. But if that invitation turns into a subpoena to appear before a grand jury, Trump will either show up and answer questions or he’ll be locked up even sooner than we ever imagined.
