The only answer to Trump: Trust but Verify

Donald is very insistent that Mueller not testify before Congress. He says that after $35M and NOKA LUJON, that it’s over. Nothing to see here. Move along.

By the way, does Mueller have a security detail? Just wondering.

Now, Donald May be perfectly innocent, like he says, and there’s nothing more to say on the matter of Russia, national security risks and obstruction of justice. He may have no stain on his spotless reputation at all.

Life would be so much easier for all of us if we could only trust him. We want to think that he’s not a ruthless, unprincipled, uneducated and selfish man sitting on the most powerful arsenal the world has ever seen.

We’d like to believe that he wasn’t implicated in a coup in 2016 using the help of a foreign government. That would make those of us in Pennsylvania feel better about the integrity of our voting apparatus.

So, let’s presume innocence on Donald’s part.

But check with Mueller anyway to keep things transparent between all parties. It couldn’t possibly hurt an innocent man to have it all laid bare and to see all the cards everyone is holding.
