The Russian Usurper thinks that sitting for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller is up to his own whims, and so he refused to say whether he would sit for an interview, you know, if Mueller politely asked him to have a cheese sandwich with him. Comrade Stupid doesn’t understand that his choices will be:
A) Have a voluntary interview with Mueller in the White House with his
shysters lawyers present or 2) be subpoenaed and forced to testify under oath in front a grand jury with the FBI present but not his lawyers. And given that he lies six times per day, that could prove to be problematical for the would-be Davos party animal.
As we all know from the years that Kenn Star chased Bill Clinton’s peen around DC, lying to a grand jury doesn’t work out. I’m really hoping option #2 comes to pass.
But if the Russian Usurper goes with option A, does he really think he can bluster and bullshit a prosecutor like Mueller?
Either way, I predict we’re gonna need more popcorn.
UPDATE 1: Imma still looking for the quote wherein the Russian Usurper said he would be willing to talk to Mueller (before he said he wouldn’t):
Trump was 100 PERCENT willing to talk to Mueller under oath until it became clear Mueller wanted to talk to him and now he's not so sure and also have you heard about Crooked Hillary? https://t.co/OimH5yh9b5 pic.twitter.com/oqkmmauNKn

Trump himself has previously indicated he would be willing to talk to Mueller. During a news conference in June, Trump said he was “100 percent” willing to testify under oath that former FBI Director James Comey lied during his testimony to Congress when he said that Trump asked him to quash an active investigation into one of his associates in February of last year, weeks after the president asked his former FBI director to pledge personal loyalty.
— Think Progress, but they don’t link to the press conference itself.
