Trump vs. Mueller investigation?

What You Need To Know About A Mueller Subpoena, Trump And The Russia Imbroglio

 

Can the Justice Department subpoena the president?

 

Could Trump resist a subpoena?

 

Could Trump invoke his Fifth Amendment rights?

 

What do Trump's lawyers say?

The president's advisers appear to be split on a Mueller interview. Some of them, and some outside advisers, including Roger Stone, say Trump must not talk with Mueller.

Others, including one of Trump's newest lawyers, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, appear to want to keep the door open to an interview. That would enable Trump to placate the special counsel short of a subpoena and also permit the White House to continue touting its cooperation with the investigation. These two camps are now warring in the press.....

Could Trump solve his problems by firing Mueller? or Rosenstein?

Today is Monday. That means @realDonaldTrump is lying again.

The 3 people in charge of the Special Counsel investigation are: -Deputy AG Rosenstein, a Republican

-FBI Director Wray, a Republican

-Mueller, a war hero & a Republican

Also, House & Senate controlled by Republicans

Mueller's Probe Is Even More Expansive Than It Seems

The special counsel’s team has interviewed a number of big names. But their interest in more obscure players tells a story, too.

....also highlights Mueller’s interest in answering one of the probe’s biggest outstanding questions: whether the campaign knew in advance that Russia planned to interfere in the election. .....

Trump’s New Strategy for Responding to Robert Mueller

The president’s message focuses on undermining the investigators and investigation, rather than insisting that no crimes were committed.

 

:.............. The new strategy, particularly as demonstrated by Giuliani on CNN, follows three prongs. First, impugn the investigators themselves. Second, argue that the investigation was tainted from the start. Third, argue that Mueller cannot indict Trump anyway.

The Cobb-Dowd strategy began with the assumption that Trump had nothing to hide. The new strategy, however, seems to take as its premise that Trump is guilty of at least something. ....

I still don't understand why Trump Jr. hasn't been charged.    He isn't going to 'flip' on his pa, so charge him already!

Robert Mueller is reportedly examining an undisclosed encounter between President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March 2017, where the president urged Sessions not to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. From the New York Times.

In a letter to Mueller, Trump's lawyers said he "dictated a short but accurate response to the New York Times" about the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russians.

But here are FIVE TIMES @JaySekulow and @PressSec previously denied Trump's role in the misleading statement.

The President of the United States dictated a letter trying to cover-up a meeting that his son, son-in-law, and campaign manager eagerly took,

which offered “high-level,” sensitive information about his opponent as part of the Kremlin’s support for him

—and then lied about it.

Secret memo to Mueller actually reveals weakness of Trump’s position

Regarding Trump's Donny Junior dictated memo ...
In political terms, the fact that Trump’s lawyers had to concede to such an important episode — one in which the president misled the country to cover up his son’s effort to conspire with a foreign power’s corruption of our democracy on his behalf — shows what a perilous position he’s in.

JUST IN: Special counsel Robert Mueller's office has accused former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of attempting to shape potential witnesses' testimony and has asked to send him to jail as he awaits his trial, according to a court filing https://cnn.it/2J8QGJH

Jed Shugerman Retweeted Connor Lynch

Mueller has filed to revoke Manafort's bail because he "suborned perjury" and tampered with witnesses.

1) The final error that forces Manafort to flip?

2) Or proof that Manafort has flipped out mentally?

3) But this is not the conduct of someone who thinks he has a pardon.

The plot thickens.......

Mueller is running an investigation. Donny is running a three-ring circus

with himself as the main clown. They run on different timelines.

BREAKING: Special Counsel Mueller asks judge to revoke bail for Paul Manafort,

accusing him in court filing of attempting to tamper with potential witnesses.

"...Manafort and one of his associates “repeatedly” contacted two witnesses in an effort to influence their testimony. The contacts occurred while Manafort was under house arrest.

The two witnesses are not named in court filings. But prosecutors say they worked with Manafort in organizing a group of former European officials who lobbied within the U.S. without registering...
