Trump just answered Mueller’s Russia probe questions, but everyone is skeptical

It’s finally come time for the President to face the music and tell his side of the story to Robert Mueller’s probe of the Donald Trump for President campaign and the allegations of collusion with agents of the Russian Federation.

In lieu of an actual interview, the president will be answering a series of written questions. He claims that he’s answered them all himself, which would be the best case scenario for the rest of us, because it’s hard to imagine him resisting the urge to do what feels natural and aggressively perjure himself with his irrepressible need to lie (poorly) about everything under the sun.

“My lawyers don’t write answers, I write answers!” declared the president. “You have to always be careful when you answer questions with people that probably have bad intentions. But no, the questions were very routinely answered by me” groused an ornery Trump to reporters in an Oval Office.

Of course, almost nobody believes that Trump’s lawyers are going to let him write his own answers to Mueller’s probes. The president is notorious for not only lying at every chance he gets but also for veering off into entirely unrelated tangents, and while it would be very amusing, we don’t think the Special Counsel is interested in hearing about the time Trump tried to go furniture shopping with Anna Wintour.

But the president still hasn’t submitted his answers yet, and hasn’t explained why. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman noted that Trump has accused Mueller of dragging out the investigation as long as he can while it’s been the Trump team that is refusing to cooperate on deadlines, stalling and obfuscating and running away from the inevitable as hard as they can.

Hopefully, the fact that they’ve finally penned the answers means we’re finally drawing to a close on the Trump-Russia investigation, two years later — and one step closer to seeing Trump and his cronies pay for their crimes.
