Why Trump testifying under oath to Mueller is a “horrible idea”

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff

President Trump is fired up, and wants to testify under oath to Robert Mueller so he can finally put the bogus “Trump/Russia collusion” narrative to bed, but I think that’s a horrible idea. I explain why.

To be quite honest I am kind of lost as to what Mueller is exactly supposed to be investigating. I thought it was supposed to be about collusion which has so far shown no evidence but even if some turned up for argument sake the lawyers on CNN on both sides of the issue have agreed that collusion isn’t a crime. So what the hell are they investigating I ask? To which some reply they are investigating obstruction of justice. Wait obstruction of an investigation of a crime that doesn’t exist (collusion)? Someone else suggested they are investigating money laundering but there was no basis for a money laundering investigation. You can’t just start an investigation without some sort of evidence. So someone please clarify what exactly is supposed to be being investigated. I will add that despite both sides agreeing that collusion isn’t a crime CNN still mentions it quite frequently as though it were.

Flat earth Flat water: Swearing to tell the truth is kind of what an oath is. I’m not trying to be critical of whatever choice people make. Honestly I think they need to figure that out for themselves. But I seemed to think swearing on a bible or anything kind of fell in the category. In the end Jesus said (Mathew 5:34-37 )just let your yes be yes ad your no be no. Anything past that comes from the evil one. I kind of get that. When you start swearing on your mother’s grave (who may be alive) or when you swear on a stack of bibles or just one it might be a form of grandstanding which could be a deflection from simply answering a simple question.

The FISA memo will bring the entire house of cards down in a steaming pile of dung. Or will it? Crooked Hillary paid 12 million bucks for the dirty dossier and everyone knows that it’s a complete lie. Mueller knows it, the President knows it, Atty. Gen. Sessions knows it and the GOP Reps. know it. According to what I’ve heard/read, the White House has given over one million pages of documents to Mueller…still no proof of any ‘collusion’ after more than a year. The deep state used the intelligence apparatus to spy on a political opponent, based on a lie.

Comey gave an FBI document to his friend to leak to the media and start the ball rolling with a special council. He admitted it. What he did was illegal.

Why did Mueller meet with the President the day before he was appointed as special council? To interview for the job of FBI Director as was stated by the media? From what I understand, Mueller had served his complete term as FBI Director and would not be able to hold that post again. So why was he meeting with the President that day?

Too many unanswered questions, and still too many swamp critters running around instead of being locked up.

Keith Barnes,

Um, a person can swear an oath to whomever is their God per their religion. You don’t have to swear on a Christian Bible, if you are Jewish.

Even Christians don’t have to swear on a Bible. Mennonites can simply attest.

I disagree he will eat Mueller for breakfast.

Totally agree with you, this is a trap. Having worked with lawyers, they can twist nothing into anything if they are sharks like this corrupt Mueller. Unfortunately if Trump goes along and ends up being impeached, he would deserve it because he would be really dumb.

Edward jobin.. you have a point… but there are not taking an oath… they are swearing to tell the truth based on gods holy word.

Geez John, so who is going to make sure Meuller can’t do this to Trump? Surely somebody is looking out for this sort of trap and will stop him or safe guard him some how?
Mueller is a crook and should be removed anyway, how is he even still special council? Trump should use his authority and tell him to take a hike.

Mueller is imploding on his own anyway. Ya, it’s taking a while but why take a chance on lying to the deep staters about something you might of forgot. He’ll me mired in mud for another year. Never talk to the FBI, you’re there boss for crying out loud.

This goes against the conventional wisdom but I am okay with Trump testifying so long as he has someone as knowledgable about the law as Dershowitz sitting by his side and objecting to improper questions. The alternatives for Trump are to fire Mueller or take the 5th. If he does not agree to be questioned by Mueller, Trump can be required to appear before a Grand Jury.

I have often found the oath swearing on the bible a bit curious considering the bible itself suggests we don’t swear oaths.

I saw an excellent interview on CNN with liberal Harvard law Professor and constitutional expert Allan Dershowitz where he claimed Trump can’t get into trouble for firing Comey as that is his constitutional right. He also could have pardoned Flynn before the fact so if he asked Comey to go easy or not investigate Flynn is also within his constitutional right. He gave a number of historical examples proving it doesn’t matter. You can shill impeach him but you can’t legally get him into any trouble for exercising his constitutional rights.

The burden of truth lies with the accuser. Let him prove that Trump is being dishonest. I agree with John. Trump need not swear any oath, to prove his innocence. What good is an oath, in these days of none believers. Swearing an oath to the Christian God means nothing. Ask a Muslim.

You may be right but I think Trump has something up his sleeve here. He’s let Mueller play away to this point & I get the sense that he’s been waiting for this moment (just a gut feeling, I know.) With recent revelations I’m wondering if the Mueller circus will end with Mueller heading to prison.

Well, I think Trump is a dickhead. Yes, yes, yes, I would certainly voted for him before Hillary….and yes, yes, yes, he has ten times the brains that turdo la doo could ever hope to possess. But I still think he’s a dickhead.

However, when it comes to confrontation, he is very, very, good at it. And this – “I will testify under oath” – is a direct challenge to Mueller. It sends a message, "I am not worried a bit about you. The only thing you have in your arsenal is the hope that you can catch me in a lie, and I have no intention of lying, so hit me with your best shot.. ♫Obammy Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling♫ ".
