Trump: Sure, I’ll Testify Under Oath

Of course, in response to a direct question, what else is he supposed to say?

(CNN) A defiant President Donald Trump said Friday he was willing to testify under oath about his conversations with James Comey, further fueling the swirling controversy ignited by the fired FBI director’s bombshell testimony before the Senate on Thursday.

“One hundred percent,” Trump said when asked about his willingness to deliver sworn testimony.

The CNN article, like The Hill article, is a little short on providing the entire exchange, but, the “bombshell testimony” link is hilarious. The biggest thing we learned what that Obama AG Loretta Lynch possibly obstructed justice. For most people, it was a big nothingburger. Vox actually does everyone a service in providing the transcript between Jonathan Karl and Mr. Trump (though, you can watch and listen to the video from both CNN and The Hill)

Then Karl asked the big question — whether Trump would be willing to give his version of events under oath. Trump seemed to say that he “100 percent” would, but then rambled a bit in a confusing way and apparently suggesting he interpreted “under oath” as referring to the alleged exchange between him and Comey about loyalty.

KARL: So he said those things under oath, would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of those events?

TRUMP: 100 percent. I didn’t say “under oath,” I hardly know the man, I’m not gonna say “I want you to pledge allegiance,” who would do that, who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath? I mean think of it, I hardly know the man, it doesn’t make sense. No I didn’t say that and I didn’t say the other.

Trump also said he’d be willing to say the same to Special Council Robert Mueller.

Let’s note one thing: Trump needs to shift a lot from blustering NYC businessman mode into more refined politician mode. Ease up on the attacks, learn to deflect and delay. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes it gets in the way if him getting things done.

Let’s also note that if this was a Democrat president with a Democrat Congress, there would be no investigations at all. Democrats refused to investigate the things Obama and his team were doing, and obstructed all investigations when the GOP took over the House and then the Senate. Democrats, and the media, were fine with obstruction by team Obama when it came to matters such as the Fast and Furious gunrunning scheme, along with the investigation into what happened in Benghazi. Republicans need to grow a spine and tell Democrats, and the media, to go pound sand, and get on with their agenda.

    Bad move. Our esteemed President is right about most things, but he does have a bad tendency to ramble on and not get his facts completely straight. Testifying under oath would be a perjury trap for him.

    LOL. He’s a pathological, congenital liar. He lies about testifying under oath, and would lie while under oath. He is mentally ill, out of touch with reality, and thinks no one notices. He lies about everything.

    trump does understand that US Presidents are above the law and have been constrained in the past by custom and decency – both of which trump lacks.

    TEACHs defense? OBAMA!!!

    So when do we begin the articles of impeachment?
    Oh, wait …

  4. Jeffery says:

    Real Americans will drag trump out of the White House, rape him with a rifle barrell and burn him alive before the Republicans will impeach.

    The world would rejoice.

      Ah, so little tough guy is upset that the stories about Russian collusion and obstruction by the President aren’t going to fly.
      How sad, little guy, you’ve lost again.
      There there, little guy, no one is going to stop you from spewing your crap. Actually you’re really quite hilarious, you little weakling.

  5. Jeffery says:

    The ignorati don’t seem to understand that there is little recourse against an unfit US president other than impeachment. So everyone (including the Dems) should just relax and protect the nation from trump as best they can – he will not be removed by the Repubs.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Like I typed before:
      Hilarious.
      Get out of the sandbox, rinse out your v, and try to act like a grownup, little guy and accept the fact that you lost and you keep losing.

      What arrogant people don’t understand is that there is no shame or crime in being ignorant. I consider myself to be the most ignorant person in the room, that is why I try to get more information and don’t open my mouth until I have it. Now, on the other hand we have stupid, that is the people that have been presented with reliable information and keep making the same mistakes and voicing stupid opinions. How many time have we schooled Jeff???

  6. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    And why would we expect to learn anything from one who admits to being the most “ignorant person in the room”? We prefer to be taught by those that are learned.

    #Ignorance + Arrogance = trump
