CNN’s Van Jones reveals why Trump’s lawyers are ‘terrified’ after Mueller rejects written answers

Published

on

Former Obama administration official Van Jones responded on-air to reports that special counsel Robert Mueller wants more from Donald Trump — and why the prospect should leave the president’s lawyers quaking.

Moments before, CNN broke news that Mueller still wants to interview Trump after reviewing his written responses to questions regarding Russian collusion and obstruction of justice, which the special counsel deemed not enough.

“Mueller’s interest in talking with the president continues, and it includes an interest in asking questions about the president’s state of mind in regards to actions under scrutiny in the obstruction probe,” CNN’s Pamela Brown reported earlier in the hour.

Host John Berman noted that as the network got the story “30 seconds before” they went live, Jones turned to him and said “Wow, this is not good news for the president.”

“There’s a context here which we’ve now just gotten used to,” Jones noted. “It’s important to remind people. Why won’t the president sit down and have a conversation with Mueller?”

Though most people, like Trump, would not want to have the interview, “they’d lawyer up and get it over with” the former special advisor to Barack Obama mused.

But in the case of Mueller and this president, Jones noted, “everybody knows that Trump can’t talk without lying” — a state that would be a “massive disability for anybody, let alone the head of a country.”

“His lawyers are terrified that if he opens his mouth, he cannot tell the truth and would wind up going to jail,” he added.

Confabulation is an unintentional event where someone's memory creates "fabricated, distorted, or misinterpreted memories about oneself or the world." Parataxic distortion is when a person tends to "skew perceptions" of others based on fantasy. Then there's political opportunism, a "diagnosis" that plagues politicians almost exclusively. Regardless of the cause, Washington Post syndicated columnist Michael Gerson noted President Donald Trump is not only creating his own reality, he's inviting his supporters to live inside of it.

Conservative attorney reveals Duncan Hunter’s ‘colossal stupidity’ with devastating timeline of his actions

Published

Conservative attorney Gabriel Malor, who in the past has written legal analyses for right-wing publications such as The Federalist and the Washington Examiner, found himself in awe at the latest Department of Justice filings leveled against indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA).

In court filings made on Tuesday, the DOJ alleged that Hunter illegally used money donated to his congressional campaign to “carry out a series of intimate relationships” with women who were all involved in politics, including three registered lobbyists and one of his own staff members.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
