People who think the Mueller probe is legitimate:
-Delusional media jokers
-Liberals who watch cable channels featuring delusional media jokers.

FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump’s legal team said Wednesday they have responded to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s request for an interview with the president as part of the probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
“We have responded in writing to the latest proposal from the Office of Special Counsel regarding its request to interview the President,” said Jay Sekulow, an attorney for the president. “It is not appropriate, at this time, to comment publicly about the content of that response.”
Rudy Giuliani, another lawyer for Trump, in a statement reiterated calls to end the Russia probe.
“Millions of pages of documents along with testimony from dozens of witnesses have been provided,” he said. “We’re re-stating what we have been saying for months: it is time for the Office of Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay.”
Sources have told Fox News that the letter would largely turn down any Trump-Mueller meeting that would include any questions related to obstruction of justice.
Earlier Monday, Giuliani would not go into the details of their offer, but he told Fox News: “It’s not a refusal, but at the same time, it’s not a completely unreasonable position. I can see a way in which [Mueller] may agree with it.”
Giuliani acknowledged that Mueller could try to subpoena the president if an agreement for an interview cannot be worked out. The president’s attorneys have repeatedly stated that they will fight any attempt to subpoena Trump.
Talks between Trump’s lawyers and the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election have restarted in recent days, and it is not clear a deal will be struck.
Trump has publicly expressed a desire to be interviewed, but his lawyers have repeatedly objected to the investigators’ proposals.
Trump attorneys say both sides have exchanged proposals for conditions for such a Trump interview.
Okay. So what was in the letter that the Trump Legal Team sent to Special Counsel Robert Mueller?
Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz has an idea…
On “America’s Newsroom,” Dershowitz said that Trump’s lawyers will set a series of conditions that will legally protect the president going forward, which Mueller will not agree to.
“They’re going to make him an offer he can’t accept,” Dershowitz said, arguing that Trump’s team wants Mueller to subpoena the president, which he says will end months from now “in a draw.”
Dershowitz added that Trump won’t be able to be questioned about why he fired former FBI Director James Comey, but could certainly be questioned about the 2016 meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower.
“I don’t see a crime, at this point, that Mueller can come up with,” he said. “I don’t think you can obstruct justice by exercising your Article II powers under the Constitution.”
He said that it’s “awfully hard” to show Trump’s testimony is actually needed, saying that Mueller could be attempting to capture Trump in a perjury trap.
If the President and his legal team did follow the course which Professor Dershowitz outlined, they have put Mueller between a rock and a hard place.
All along, Mueller has been itching to get President Trump in front of him, in hopes that somehow, someway, he could get the President to make a mistake and contradict himself, so that Mueller could file a perjury charge against him.
And, as the Professor stated, it is going to be hard to show that Trump’s testimony is actually needed, as absolutely no evidence of criminal activities has reared its ugly head in all these many months of Mueller’s and the “17 Angry Democrats'” Russia Probe.
Collusion in itself is not a crime.
Sales Managers and Salesmen on Use Car Lots “collude” several times every day.
President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “colluded” on the night of that 4 Americans were massacred on the ground of the U.S. Embassy Compound at Benghazi, Libya. They “colluded” to do nothing at all. and later. they and their staff, including Susan Rice, “colluded” and decided to blame it all on a video which no one had ever watched.
Later, failed Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton “colluded” with John Podesta and decided not to appear at her “victory” party, leaving her loyal voters to suffer their tears of anguish alone.
So, if no crimes have been committed, as Professor Dershowitz, who happens to be a Liberal, said, then why in the world are the Special Counsel and his band of Angry Democrats still expanding their scope of investigation…on OUR dime?
Hopefully, within the next week or so, Mueller will realize that his Quixotic Quest to drive President Trump from office has failed and he will submit his findings and bring this whole embarrassing exercise in futility to an ignominious end.
Then, he and his cadre of Democratic Donors can volunteer on the political campaign bandwagon of Bernie Sanders and that little girl from New York who wants everybody taken care of from cradle to grave via “Democratic Socialism”, but has no clue as to where the money will come from.
If they are going to spend money doing something useless, at least they would be spending their own for a change.
