Mueller’s “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann admitted the special counsel’s team “tried to get rid of” President Trump by laying a perjury trap.
Of course President Trump didn’t fall for it.
President Trump only submitted written answers to Mueller’s team and refused to sit down for an interview with the special counsel’s prosecutors.
Many believe devil Weissmann was in charge of the entire special counsel operation and Robert Mueller was just the figurehead.
Weissmann’s comments during a Thursday appearance on MSNBC were in response to President Trump’s scorched earth rebuke of the ‘scum’ at the top of the FBI earlier this morning.
Trump blasted “dirty cops” James Comey and “scum” Peter Strzok on Thursday before calling out Mueller’s corruption in his victory speech after the senate voted to acquit him on both articles of impeachment.
“[Trump] never submitted to an interview, he never testified under oath — it’s true the same happened in the Mueller case,” Weissmann said.
“Why do you think that is?” Nicolle Wallace asked.
“There’s a classic reason. There is legal jeopardy that attaches if you sit for an interview or if you say something under oath to federal prosecutors, to the House, to the Senate — so if you notice, the President is happy to talk today…but when it came time for him to put up or shut up…and give an interview under oath, he’s completely silent,” Weissmann added.
Whether he realizes it or not, Andrew Weissmann just admitted what we always knew:
The purpose of the Mueller investigation was “trying to get rid of” President Trump and laying a perjury trap

Weissmann forgot to add that only Trump supporters are prosecuted for making false statements to the feds.
Mueller, Clapper, Brennan and Comey have all perjured themselves yet they have never been held accountable for their crimes.
