The media is finally catching up with Trump. Boasting an “exclusive”, Reuters is finally reporting the real reason Trump doesn’t want to meet with Mueller. Anyone who has been paying attention knows that Rudy Guiliani has been talking about their fears of the perjury trap for weeks. Mostly though the media has misunderstood what Guiliani was saying and instead speculated about why Trump’s lawyers might be meeting with Mueller. When McGahn met with Mueller for 30 hours with no attorney client immunity, the New York Times speculated that he was flipping on Trump rather than speaking on his behalf.
Trump’s concern has been that if Mueller interviews him and he happens to say something contrary to what Comey or someone else has said, Mueller will slap Trump with a perjury charge. Of course, it would be a he said, he said situation, but Mueller would likely take Comey’s word for it. Unlike Bill Clinton who committed perjury and was proven to have lied by the DNA on Lewinsky’s dress, Trump would be giving his word versus Comey or some other long time Mueller ally/business associate.
Speaking of the unhinged media, NY Times columnist Michelle Goldberg said on MSNBC’s The Lid that she believes Trump wants to “murder people without due process”. Goldberg was explaining why she felt Trump was no longer the leader of the free world, but instead should be classified as a murderous dictator. When asked if she thought he would murder people without due process, Goldberg replied “he would certainly like to.”
David Hogg is back in the news, giving an interview to New York Magazine. In the interview, Hogg expressed frustration with “older Democrats”, saying they should get out of the way and let him take over. He also called Pelosi old and suggested there should be an age limit for people in Congress. In case you were still taking him seriously, Hogg also said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was going to be the President of the United States.
