Trump on Thursday dismissed special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into his former associates and his Presidential campaign in a New York Times interview in which the President said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told him the probe does not view him as a target. “He told the attorneys that I’m not a subject, I’m not a target,” Trump said. “Rod told me I’m not a target of the investigation,” Trump added. Well, that is not quite true. Trump suggested he had not spoken with Rosenstein directly. He suggested that he had not spoke to Rosenstein? He either did or he didn't. Trump seems very unsure of himself. That is what happens when you lie. “The lawyers ask him. They say, "He’s not a target of the investigation,’” Trump said. Everyone stop laughing. This should be looked at critically. We have no reason to believe Trump here. He is a compulsive liar who says whatever is convenient at the time. For two years he has called the special prosecutor's investigation a "witch hunt." We know that is a lie. Why not this confusing statement where he is "suggesting" he didn't really talk to Rosenstein, but said he did. There is a DOJ rule, not a statute, a rule, that a sitting President cannot be indicted. Mueller works for the DOJ and Mueller is very conscious of rules. Mueller is not about to suggest indicting Trump. Perhaps, this is what the lawyers were referring to. Trump would not be a target for an indictment. It would be fitting that Trump would omit that detail. This version of the story is acceptable because the DOJ rule is widely known, and it would be very odd and out of character for Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to tell Trump's lawyers that the President is not the subject of the probe. He definitely is. That was the whole idea of the appointment of the special prosecutor in the first place. Mueller was appointed as a direct result of Trump's firing of Comey, indicating obstruction of justice. At the time, the FBI was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and any possible connection to the Trump campaign. Trump even admitted to two prominent Russians in the Oval Office and to Lester Holt that Russia was the reason for the firing.
