After Trump Said He Answered Mueller's Questions 'Very Easily,' Giuliani Says It 'Was a Nightmare'


by Ronn Blitzer | 9:44 am, December 6th, 2018

Last month, after President Donald Trump prepared his written responses to questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s office, he told reporters that he answered them “very easily.” His lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, now tells a very different story.




“Answering those questions was a nightmare,” Giuliani said in an interview for The Atlantic. “It took him about three weeks to do what would normally take two days.”

This appears to be a running theme for the White House’s efforts in responding to Mueller’s investigation these days, with the end of election season bringing a series of major developments. In recent days, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying about the timeline of negotiations with the Russian government for a potential Trump property in Moscow. Then, Mueller filed a sentencing memo for Michael Flynn which said the former National Security Adviser “substantially assisted” prosecutors in a number of investigations. The Flynn memo has led to speculation that bigger things are coming as a result of his cooperation.

So how to respond to whatever comes next? That appears to be another question that’s proving difficult to answer. Trump defenders like Alan Dershowitz have called for Mueller to allow Trump’s team to release a report of their own at the same time that the Special Counsel’s Office releases their final report. As it turns out, it looks like Trump’s camp isn’t even bothering to prepare for this, because of the problems with maintaining a consistent message.

1. "...the problems with maintaining a consistent message."

Trump changes directions constantly. One can easily assume that his written responses will be either gibberish that is non-responsive or filled with lies.

For example, Trump repeatedly told America that he didn't have any business dealings in Russia. Now that he's been proven to have lied about that, he tries to change the story the it was legal and "cool." It was neither.

2. And now Dershowitz has been revealed as another child rapist.

No wonder he's so defensive of drumpf, they're both child rapists. Wonder if they both were part of the payoff to Costa for his illegal deal, bet they were.

4. It's totally necessary!

Something I want to see quickly as this has huge ramifications. We've got to get that child rapist enabler out of government.
