Good Question

If the Mueller report totally exonerated Trump and proved that there was NO COLLUSION at all ever oh yeah, then why would he object to Robert Mueller testifying to Congress?

Trump reversed himself on Sunday and said that the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, should not testify before Congress, setting up a potentially explosive confrontation with Democrats over presidential authority and the separation of powers.

The president argued on Twitter that Mr. Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — which found no conspiracy between Moscow and Mr. Trump’s campaign but did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice — was conclusive and that Congress and the American people did not need to hear from Mr. Mueller. “Bob Mueller should not testify,” he said. “No redos for the Dems!”

On Friday, Mr. Trump had said it was up to Attorney General William P. Barr whether Mr. Mueller testified. The president’s about-face now puts new pressure on Mr. Barr, who must decide whether to accede to Mr. Trump’s call. Last week, Mr. Barr said he had no objection to Mr. Mueller testifying.

So what’s the problem?  What could Mr. Mueller possibly say that would undermine Trump’s claims about his pure-as-the-driven-snow innocence?  If anything, he should be in favor of the world hearing straight from Mr. Mueller how the entire investigation was a total waste of time, right?

I’d say that this was evidence of a guilty conscience, but we have yet to have any proof that Trump has one in the first place.

4 barks and woofs on “Good Question

  1. I’ve always believed that Trump’s biggest problem with the Russia Investigation is the notion that HE couldn’t beat a woman in a fair fight. That’s impossible for him to accept.

  2. Wait for the Mueller report, wait for the unredacted Mueller report, now wait for the Mueller testimony. The report didn’t resolve or settle anything; I’m not sure what we think his testimony is going to accomplish.
