Trump should meet with Mueller with Hellary's terms
Sharyl Attkisson: A Trump/Mueller meeting should be under same terms DOJ gave Hillary, rolls out perfect plan…
April 5, 2018 | Samantha Chang
Sharyl Attkisson, an Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist, is among the legions of Trump supporters who believe it would be foolish for the president to agree to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller because it’s nothing more than a contrived perjury trap.
However, Attkisson said if President Trump does talk to Mueller, it should be under the same sweetheart deal that Hillary Clinton got when she was being investigated over her unsecured, private email server.
Attkisson, a former CBS News reporter, laid out the perfect plan in a series of detailed tweets. She wrote: “Re: Trump interview w/special counsel, perhaps all can agree it should be under same terms @TheJusticeDept gave Hillary Clinton,” including that an exoneration letter be drafted before the interview is even conducted (which is what former FBI director James Comey did).
Moreover, immunity from prosecution should be granted to all top Trump campaign aides in the same blanket fashion they were doled out to Hillary’s top aides. Here is Attkisson’s full 10-point plan:
An exoneration letter is drafted in advance.
Immunity is given to top Trump aides (and they’re allowed to sit in on interview)
Interview isn’t recorded.
Lead official (Mueller) doesn’t attend.
#2 official’s [on Mueller team] family has received large donations from Trump political friends.
Prior to the interview, lead official meets privately on plane tarmac with Trump’s wife (to discuss grandchildren).
Main interviewer has expressed disdain for Trump’s opponents, such as discussing an “insurance plan” with higher-ups to undermine them. If the same
terms aren’t offered…Was Clinton’s interview process unfair? Or is the one proposed for Trump unfair?
As long as they believe Trump didn’t intend any harm, he’s let off the hook for any violations.
If Trump becomes a target, it should be referred to as a “matter” not an investigation.
Trump aides should be permitted to destroy subpoenaed or relevant public records and wipe relevant servers with a cloth or something.
While Sharyl Attkisson was semi-joking, seeing the stunning allowances granted to Hillary’s team during her FBI “investigation” spotlights just how corrupt the process was, and how it was rigged from the beginning to ensure her exoneration.
