Trump indicates he only wants Mueller report made public if it doesn’t say anything mean about him

Donald Trump claimed in a Sunday interview that he’ll leave it up to his attorney general to decide whether to release special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. That isn’t much comfort, since everything in Trump’s record points to him leaning on the attorney general to do what he wants, and when Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan asked Trump about the Mueller investigation, he became agitated, referring to the investigation as a “witch hunt” four times, dismissing the fact that 34 people have been charged with “many of them were bloggers from Moscow or they were people that had nothing to do with me,” trying to change the subject to Hillary Clinton, and saying that Roger Stone “wasn’t on my campaign except way at the beginning.” 

Asked whether he’d be comfortable having Mueller’s report released, Trump said “I don’t know.” Because “It depends. I have no idea what it’s going to say.” In other words, he’s waiting to find out how damning it is.

In the same interview, Trump bragged about his pen pal relationship with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, saying “We have had tremendous correspondence that some people have seen and can’t even believe it”; lied about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell having tried to recruit Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to run for the Senate; and, of course, harped on his border wall dreams. Always with the border wall and the fearmongering about “an invasion of our country by human traffickers.” Though, notably, Trump didn’t repeat his own personal fantasies about women with tape on their mouths.

Trump refused to rule out another government shutdown, calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who so notably drank his milkshake in the last shutdown, “very rigid.” He followed that up with the laughable claim that “she can keep playing her games, but we will win. Because we have a much better issue.” That’s … not what the American public thinks.

In other words, water is wet and Trump is still dug in on his unpopular positions and lying shamelessly to defend them.

And almost to the very last day in April 1945, that other psychopath kept blabbering about miracle weapons and non-existent armies who would miraculously save the day!

Trumpet aka Hitler is a rising star and fully empowered by the senile old white men who do not dare to cross him….as an American we can only hope that some group, some judge, some entity or some person will step up and take control to end this crisis….before it is to late to save ourselves and our country….

THe people of America have a right to know what will be in Mueller’s report. Corrupt Trump should have no say in that. He is as corrupt as can be and most of the people know it. Lock him up the delusional moron. He has caused so much harm to innacent people, he has to get out of office.
