I’m beginning to think that that Donald Trump guy has a penchant for lying. The former reality show star turned criminal defendant pleaded the fifth more than 400 times in his fraud deposition. But now he told radio host Hugh Hewitt that he looks “forward to testifying.” He further claimed that he’s “allowed to do whatever I want” with classified documents. It’s as if he’s confessing to something.
“I’m allowed to do whatever I want … I’m allowed to do everything I did,” Trump told Hewitt.
Via the Rolling Stone:
In an interview on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that dropped Wednesday, the host asked Trump, “Did you direct anyone to move the boxes, Mr. President? Did you tell anyone to move the boxes?” referring to the boxes of more than 300 classified documents the federal government seized last year from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
“I don’t talk about anything. You know why? Because I’m allowed to do whatever I want. I come under the Presidential Records Act,” Trump replied while also taking a quick detour to bash Hewitt. “I’m not telling you. You know, every time I talk to you, ‘Oh, I have a breaking story.’ You don’t have any story. I come under the Presidential Records Act. I’m allowed to do everything I did.”
Hewitt asked Trump if he would testify in his own defense at the trial in the case of the documents, and the twice impeached president said, “That, I would do. That, I look forward to, because that’s just like Russia, Russia, Russia. That’s all the fake information from Russia, Russia, Russia. Remember when the dossier came out and everyone said, ‘Oh, that’s so terrible, that’s so terrible,’ and then it turned out to be it was a political report put out by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. They paid millions for it. They gave it to Christopher Steele. They paid millions and millions of dollars for it, and it was all fake. It was all fake.”
Trump reiterated that he would “look forward to testifying. At trial, I’ll testify.”
Hewitt asked, “If you do [testify] and they ask you on the stand, did you order anyone to move boxes, how will you answer?”
“I’m not answering that question for you,” Trump said, “but I’m totally covered under the law.”
That’s classic Trump, and I’m sure his attorneys are sobbing into their MyPillows right now. How many times do you think he’ll plead this fifth?
