Trump and the “Perjury Trap”

Trump’s attorneys distort the concept of a “perjury trap”. Used correctly, the term refers to malfeasance on the part of prosecutors. The problem here isn’t bad behavior on Mueller’s team; it’s Trump’s chronic inability to tell the truth. He’s been making up lies for such a long time I don’t even know if he realizes when he’s lying. Either way — that he lies intentionally, or that he no longer knows when he’s lying — he’s a danger to our democracy.

There’s a simply solution to the perjury question: let’s test out whether Trump can tell the truth. That’s just as important a matter, in my view, as whether he conspired with Russia.I hope Bob Mueller subpoena’s Trump, and is upheld in the court battle surely to follow. Let’s hear what Trump has to say.
