CNN says it has a source who has described Trump’s responses to two of the questions the Mueller team sent in lieu of the interview President Chickenshit Von Bonespurs refused to sit for:
President Donald Trump told special counsel Robert Mueller in writing that Roger Stone did not tell him about WikiLeaks, nor was he told about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between his son, campaign officials and a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
One source described the President’s answers without providing any direct quotes and said the President made clear he was answering to the best of his recollection.
I don’t believe for a nanosecond that Stone would withhold such a bombshell from Trump or that Jr. would take a crap without his heinous father’s permission. So, it sounds like the orange fart cloud is betting that Stone and Don Jr. won’t rat him out, even if the feds can charge them with felonies to apply pressure to turn them.
Manhattan Mussolini’s bet seems solid to me. Stone is a partisan fanatic who has Richard Nixon’s face tattooed on his ass, and Don Jr. is a pathetic, chinless nonentity whose only source of self esteem seems to be his horrible father’s approval. As henchmen go, those two seem about as all-in as it gets, despite being a pair of coddled twits.
So, the question is, is there other evidence that contradicts these claims, evidence that wouldn’t require testimony from Stone or Jr.? Since super-genius Paul Manafort was unknowingly storing evidence of his dirty deeds in iCloud, maybe. Or maybe Trump lied in response to some other question Mueller put to him, one that can be contradicted by evidence or the testimony of less reliable toadies.
One thing we know for sure, though — Trump lied to Mueller. It was inevitable. He lies all the time. Perhaps we’ll eventually see a grilling in which various permutations of the phrase “I can’t recall” get employed over and over. At least Trump is practiced at that from his Trump U fraud testimony.
