Trump has been tweeting, shouting and complaining for over a year that there is nothing illegal or illicit that occurred?
These questions appear straight forward and an opportunity for Trump to clear his name and move on to more important issues.
The Special Counsel is conducting an investigation on behalf of the People of the United States of America.
Trump can simply honestly answer the questions put to him an he will be fine.
Dozens and dozens of people, who don't have the added advantage of Presidential Immunity, have happily testified under oath in this investigation.
How do you envision any of these questions a trap if honestly answered? He has not done anything wrong, correct?
Do people usually plead the fifth when the cops question them or do they simply choose to remain silent as is their right?
I'm not saying it doesn't apply I'm saying the fifth and miranda is redundant in my opinion.
