It may not be in President Trump’s best interest to speak to special counsel Robert Mueller because it’s not clear he’s going to get a fair jury due to congressional Democrats’ political machinations, Rep. Trey Gowdy said Sunday.
“Let’s not kid ourselves, there is a political component to it. Twice now, over 50 of my house democratic colleagues have voted to move forward with impeachment. Twice, before he has answered a single solitary question from Bob Mueller,” Gowdy said.
“The politics of it is, I don’t think he’s got a fair jury. I do think he has a fair investigator. I think he’s got a fair prosecutor in Bob Mueller, but he doesn’t have a fair jury and he’s going to have to decide whether the legal part outweighs the political party,” he added. – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [divider][/divider]

She didn’t do it under oath. – READ MORE[contentcards url=”http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trey-gowdy-it-may-not-be-in-trumps-best-interest-to-talk-to-robert-mueller-because-democrats-wont-be-a-fair-jury/article/2647324″ target=”_blank”]
