Trump Lawyer Won’t Allow Low-Energy Client To Be Questioned As Long As Hillary Clinton Was

Hillary Clinton faced 11 hours of questioning before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in 2015 and she didn’t break a sweat. And now, Donald Trump is to face questions from special counsel Robert Mueller who is investigating Russia’s interference in our 2016 presidential election. The former reality show star’s attorney, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who joined Trump’s legal team last month, said that his low-energy client would only sit down with Mueller to answer questions for a two-to-three hour period.

“Some people have talked about a possible 12-hour interview. If it happens, that’s not going to happen, I’ll tell you that,” Giuliani said, according to Reuters. “It’d be, max, two to three hours around a narrow set of questions.”

Trump’s legal team said they “would be inclined” to allow Mueller to interview Trump. “We would be inclined to do it,” Giuliani said, according to Bloomberg. “But if we came to conclusion they have already made up their mind and Comey is telling the truth — that is a joke, Comey hasn’t told the truth in years — then we would just be leading him into the lion’s den.”

Sure, because Trump always tells the truth. Except for those 3,000 times he lied.  That’s an average of 6.5 lies per day, for the record.

Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer overseeing its response to Mueller’s investigation into Russia interference, is resigning, and he will possibly be replaced by Emmet T. Flood, the Washington lawyer who represented former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment battle.

Cobb, who has urged Trump to have a more cooperative tone with Mueller, said he’s sure the special counsel didn’t leak his questions: “It’s very difficult to see who if anybody benefits from the leak of that other than people who have been trying to sabotage the possibility of an interview.”

Sounds like Cobb is sure someone on team Trump leaked the questions.

Reminder: In 2016, Trump said that Hillary Clinton doesn’t “have the look” or “stamina” to be president. As Secretary of State, Clinton traveled 956,733 miles and again, she didn’t break a sweat. Whatever Trump accuses someone of, he’s guilty of that same thing.
