During this weekend’s broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” conservative political commentator Pat Buchanan said that if President Donald Trump can stay out of the perjury trap that is being set up by the Robert Mueller investigators by not testifying, then he “is looking pretty good.”
“I think if the president’s lawyers are any good and they don’t want to be disbarred, they will keep him out of this perjury trap that’s being set up for him,” Buchanan stated. “The point here is Mueller’s investigators have all this information, they’ve interviewed people, they’ve got hours of testimony. They want to walk in and ask the president one after another question, and the probability is, given his defiance and his disputatious nature, he’ll be denying this and arguing that. It’s a perjury trap. He ought to do as little as possible.”
“This obstruction of justice thing, given the fact that Mueller’s investigation is so controversial, divisive, people don’t believe in it, I think as long as Trump avoids sitting down in this perjury trap, I think he’s looking pretty good,” he added.
