“If you are not guilty of a crime, what do you need immunity for?” Trump said at a campaign rally in Florida in September.
“The mob takes the Fifth Amendment,” Trump said at a campaign event in Iowa later that month. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”
So, while not quite taking the 5th himself here (which we’d fully expect him to pull when he’s put on the stand for treason), if Trump or his campaign is not guilty of collusion with the Russians, why would he fire the person –James Comey– leading the investigation into…the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians. Moreover, if he’s not guilty, why would he block Comey from testifying to the Senate about any evidence he found of the Trump campaign team, and possibly Trump himself, COLLUDING WITH THE RUSSIANS?
Sorry, Trump fanboys, but we’d love to see you rationalize this one. Also: Don’t bother. Like we’d listen to your vague, wild deflective fanfic over what the former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation has to say.
The White House is reviewing whether to invoke executive privilege to prevent former FBI Director James Comey from testifying before a congressional panel next week.
