Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion is in its closing stages.
It doesn’t seem to have much more forward momentum.
And whether its closing day could come a lot quicker depending on the biggest decision in the investigation yet, which will come in just a few days.
Looking back on Robert Mueller’s investigation, not much has come out despite it running for over a year, with a massive budget, and full establishment support.
On the Russian collusion front, Mueller hasn’t uncovered any proof at all.
He has proven that Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort met with a Russain lawyer once, and then never communicated with her again. But Mueller didn’t even think enough of that meeting to try to talk with the lawyer in question.
Besides that one overplayed fact, nothing has come out.
But what Mueller has spent a lot of time doing is going after Trump allies with charges unrelated to Russia collusion, or the Trump campaign.
That has given the media a lot of ammunition.
They have simply explained the fact that people on the Trump campaign have been indicted, while conveniently underplaying the charges brought against them, which don’t fit their narrative.
But there is one thing that Mueller could do to turn his investigation around.
That one thing is holding an interview with President Donald Trump.
So far it has been denied, but Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani just recently came out and said they will have an answer as to whether the president will sit down or not within the next ten days.
An interview between Trump and Mueller’s special counsel would be under oath, so it opens up a sea of possibility for Mueller.
With Trump being under oath, it gives Mueller the opportunity to find a way, likely through trickery, to get Trump to commit perjury.
There’s a big difference between Donald Trump and other politicians if they were put in the same situation.
Trump doesn’t have a politician’s filter, meaning that he will say what’s on his mind regardless of the political consequences.
That will mean that during an interview with Mueller, the special counsel could field questions in a way that Trump could misspeak.
The same thing was attempted with conservative commentators Diamond and Silk.
As they were speaking with Congress in a hearing about social media censorship the Democrats on the committee began fielding questions about their relationship with the Trump campaign.
They asked about if either of the two had ever been paid by the Trump campaign.
That answer received a solid “no” from both of the commentators.
But the Democrats on the committee had done some homework and uncovered a Federal Election Commission report that shows what seems like the two being paid.
As it turns out, that was a clerical error and was supposed to be listed as a reimbursement for money the two of them spent on a flight. But despite that, the two of them faced calls for being charged with perjury for lying while under oath.
Thankfully they stood by their “no” answer, but if they had answered yes when they were under fire, that could have also been turned on them considering it would have been a lie.
Mueller could try to do something similar with Trump, and trick him into committing a crime.
Do you think that President Trump should sit down with Robert Mueller for a meeting?
