    Watergate investigation legend Carl Bernstein called on Congress to hold hearings to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to hold office.

    Bernstein on Thursday pointed to troubling revelations in Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, about the president’s volatility, unpredictability, tenuous grasp of facts and impulsive decisions. A shocking New York Times op-ed Wednesday by an anonymous writer described as a senior White House official said that Trump’s disturbing behavior is “detrimental to the health of our republic.”

    “What’s really going on here is that Bob Woodward’s book, and the contents of what is in the anonymous piece in The New York Times, is that those closest to the president of the United States are saying we must save the country from the president,” Bernstein told Anderson Cooper on CNN.

    Rudy Giuliani: Trump Won’t Answer Mueller Obstruction Questions
    The president’s attorney said federal investigators’ questions on whether Trump tried to block the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election are a “no-go.”

    NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump will not answer federal investigators’ questions, in writing or in person, about whether he tried to block the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, one of the president’s attorneys told The Associated Press on Thursday.

    Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said questions about obstruction of justice were a “no-go.”

    Giuliani’s statement was the most definitive rejection yet of special counsel Robert Mueller’s efforts to interview the president about any efforts to obstruct the investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and Russians. It signals the Trump’s lawyers are committed to protecting the president from answering questions about actions the president took in office.

    So is the President refusing or will he say I didn't say that my lawyer said that?

    I think we need to Superpena him!

    Article II. It's the business of the President, and the President alone. I've believed that no matter who was President.

    Woodward and Bernstein were the fortunate pair that deep throat elected to be his personal stenographer.
    They have been living off it ever since, especially Bernstein.

    No person is above the law not even the President.
    If the law wanted you or I to come in and answer questions
    We had better be there or be arrested.
    This business of Trumps not liking this question or that question is :horseshit:.
    Go in and answer the questions or refuse on the 5th but go in and do it!

    Bill Clinton had to do it

    Clinton was ordered to submit because of two reasons:
    1: He was being investigated by an Independent Counsel. That law no longer exists.
    2: Clinton was being sued in a Civil Matter, unrelated to his Presidential Duties.


    1:Trump cant be indicted, per DOJ Rules that Mueller had to agree to (and has).
    2:Mueller is a Special Prosecutor. Under the DOJ rules, he MUST have been given a Specific Crime to investigate. He wasn't given one. His Scope isnt a Criminal investigation. It's a Counter Intelligence investigation.
    3: Besides that Collusion isnt a crime, and that it appears there is nothing suggesting there even Was Collusion, Mueller appears to want to know Trump's motives in firing Comey. Firing Executive Branch officials is specifically the Responsibility of the President, per Article II. Mueller has no authority to even ask about that.
    4: Since Article II assigns powers to fire to the Prez, that makes it different from Clinton's being sued civilly.

    IF a Grand Jury subpeanoed a President, he probably must comply. IF a Special Prosecutor that has an insufficient Scope subpoenas a President, about Responsibilities assigned under the Constitution, the President can probably tell the Prosecutor to go pound sand. So far, every President agreeing to a subpoena has done so voluntarily. Thomas Jefferson agreed to testify, but pointed out that judges answer to Presidents, and not vice versa.
