What if tRump refuses to answer questions?

heri_cles

I am guessing that Trump will not voluntarily submit himself for questioning to the FBI. I never thought he would. Instead, he will probably choose to stand on his claim that the FBI is bias and continue to spout off with his own opinion about collusion.

So, if he refuses to answer questions under oath, then what?

A Grand Jury subpoena?

And what itRump refuses to obey it?

tRump may still try the end run, firing Rosenstein and then making a recess appointment to fill his vacancy. In the meantime, I doubt we will see tRump submitting himself to the FBI for questioning.

It seems to me to be impossible to believe that he could be innocent. If he was, WHY DOES HE ACT LIKE A GUILTY MAN ?????????????????

The process will continue. Trump is not above the law.

The process will only continue if congress has the backbone to stand up to him. So far, esp the house, has been folding like it's made of cards. The senate now with mccain impaired and graham turned and even flake caving, may not have what it takes. I think we'll have to wait until November and a blue tsunami in order for the investigation to make its way directly to trump. His lawyers can easily take months in court arguing about indicting a sitting president, forcing him to testify, etc. And if the dems take the house by storm, that may be enough for the gop senators to realize that trump has no coattails but a millstone for the party and then they'll be happy to vote against him.

Nothing is going to happen to trump if he doesn't testify.

And, it doesn't matter what the outcome of Mueller's investigation is as long as republicans hold a majority. Nothing will happen to him.

Trump has not given a press conference in over 500 days, I think the handlers are afraid that he will speak off script. The teleprompters keep him on target for the most part, cept' recently when he forgot in 30 seconds he had just spoken to Senator Cornyn

Him and Mueller one on one? Wish it could be open to the public :)

Even if he answers all the questions, the answers will be lies,

What's a Special Prosecutor to do under these circumstances?

I don't see how he avoids it but then again he may not really care about his political future, legacy or the GOP. He may very well think that an indictment or impeachment is a plus with him and his base. I have to agree with him if that's what he thinks

There may be legal moves available for Mueller to force Trump to testify (I am not an attorney). If Trump still refuses to testify, there's still the court of public opinion; he does NOT have the support of 60+% of the public.

Calculations will be made by the GOP depending on the damage/gain they see if Trump refuses to cooperate with Mueller (and when this high-noon moment occurs). If the blue tsunami has happened, or the GOP believes it will happen, GOP congressional support for Trump is greatly diminished.

There's still the question of what Mueller has discovered about Team Trump, and what and when indictments will be made for obstruction of justice and/or conspiracy.

If Trump lies to Mueller, he is guilty of perjury -- same as Bill Clinton re Monica Lewinsky.

Perjury = bye-bye giving Trump the benefit of the doubt for the mushy middle.

You're kidding, aren't you?

He'll be charged with perjury, and obstruction of justice, and impeached, just like Mr. Trump's hero, Bill Clinton

If Clinton had told the truth, there would have been justifiable outrage, from all side,s but probably nothing more.

It's not the crime, it's the cover-up that gets them in the end.

Nah, mom. In trump's case, it will be both the crimes and the cover-ups.

Does he understand the difference between collusion and collision? Maybe he thinks we think he had a car accident with the russians and keeps claiming there's no collision!

Well, we know sessions committed perjury when he lied to congress, but he's not suffered for it. I'm sure perjury is committed in every courtroom every day but people typically are not tried for it.

We also know trump's engaged in corruption and broken the emoluments clause, nepotism and conflicts of interest, plus jared is in on, for example, the president's daily briefing even though he *still* has no security clearance (anyone want to guess why???), but none of it has had consequence for trump so far.

If mueller has evidence of money laundering by trump, it will be interesting to see if he can indict a sitting president with criminal charges...
