Donald Trump’s lies might finally catch up to him and get him a one-way ticket to prison.
Former DNI James Clapper spoke with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell where he exposed Trump for lying about the dinner with James Comey.
According to Trump, Comey was the one that wanted to have the dinner.
Trump told NBC’s Lester Holt:
TRUMP: I had a dinner with him. He wanted to have dinner because he wanted to stay on. We had a very nice dinner at the White House…
HOLT: He — he asked…
TRUMP: …very early on. That dinner was arranged. I think he asked for the dinner.
And he wanted to stay on as the FBI head. And I said I’ll, you know, consider. We’ll see what happens.
But according to Clapper, it was Trump who asked Comey to dinner.
Clapper said, “It was the 27th of January and the FBI, Jim, hosted a wonderful farewell ceremony for me, which I’ll never forget, and Jim and I spoke briefly before the ceremony and he mentioned that he’d been invited to the White House to have dinner with the president, and he was uneasy with that because of even compromising the even optics the appearance of independence, not only of him but of the FBI.”
But how will Trump’s lie send him to prison. Well if it was Trump who arranged the meeting then it shows the president’s intention of attempting to interfere with the Russia investigation.
If Trump did try to interfere with the FBI’s investigation then he committed a felony and he could be put in prison for it.
