Donald Trump Shows Just How Scared He Is Of Robert Mueller’s Testimony
We are now about one hour away from Robert Mueller’s long-awaited public testimony about his investigation into President Donald Trump’s alleged crimes and Trump is panicking.
The erratic president has been melting down about Robert Mueller since the investigation started, but his twitter rants intensified in the days ahead of Mueller’s testimony, frantically claiming “NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!”
Then there’s the surreal part where Donald Trump tries to drag everyone from Hillary Clinton to Peter Strzok (whose name he’s clearly afraid to even try to spell) into this. Trump is giving away that his allies are planning to hurl nonsense conspiracy theories at Mueller, which we expect he’ll swat away easily. Trump is also giving away that he’s petrified of what Mueller is about to do to him.
“Highly conflicted Robert Mueller should not be given another bite at the apple. In the end it will be bad for him and the phony Democrats in Congress who have done nothing but waste time on this ridiculous Witch Hunt. Result of the Mueller Report, NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION! But the questions should be asked, why were all of Clinton’s people given immunity, and why were the text messages of Peter S and his lover, Lisa Page, deleted and destroyed right after they left Mueller, and after we requested them(this is Illegal)?” Trump tweeted on Monday.
Then, yesterday, it was revealed that Robert Mueller will have his chief of staff Aaron Zebley testify alongside him. That way, if Mueller is asked a question that he’s not allowed to answer, Zebley can answer it instead. While it’s not yet clear just how far Zebley will be willing to go when it comes to answering questions, it’s clear that Mueller is planning to put him to good use. Last night NBC News confirmed that House Democrats will swear in Zebley and allow him to testify under oath, over the objections of House Republicans.
Trump didn’t take the news well and descended into another Twitter meltdown: “Just got back only to hear of a last minute change allowing a Never Trumper attorney to help Robert Mueller with his testimony before Congress tomorrow. What a disgrace to our system. Never heard of this before. VERY UNFAIR, SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED. A rigged Witch Hunt!
Trump seemed to think he’d snookered Mueller by having the DOJ demand that Mueller limit his testimony to strictly what’s in his redacted report. But now it turns out Mueller is the one who’s outfoxed Trump, and now Trump sounds like he needs his diaper changed.
