It’s not a day that ends in “Y” if we don’t bring you at least a little news from the Trump/Mueller front, and today’s is a doozy. And by “today’s” I mean of course yesterday’s because I was too busy laughing my head off at Donald Trump’s pathetic fast food ploy to notice this when CNN reported it on Monday.
At the end of last week, Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani gave an exclusive interview to The Hill in which he insisted that the legal team surrounding the President should, for some reason, be given an opportunity to “correct” the final report that comes out of special counsel Robert Mueller’s office before the public — or even Congress! — gets to read it. It’s not often that I insert an exclamation point in an interjection like that, but I feel like it deserves special attention that Rudy believes that lawyers for someone accused of crimes should be able to change the prosecution’s filing before the deliberative body that will or will not punish the accused gets a chance to look at it.
Seems weird, right?
After all of that, CNN reported that Rudy and the Trumptastics (I’ve just given them a band name, at least to try on for size) rebuffed the special counsel’s request again for a sit-down interview with the President — we’re guessing it’s because of all that “perjury trap” nonsense he was floating more than a month ago when their stalemate began over an interview. “Over my dead body,” declared Rudy on Fox News Sunday, something I’m sure that Trump would be more than happy to arrange if Rudy screws up his defense any more than he already has.
But that all gives rise to the question: Will Bob Mueller simply subpoena Donald Trump? The lead investigator for the Democratic Coalition thinks that may be the case:
BREAKING: Trump recently said no to a request for an interview from Mueller. I smell a subpoena coming for him. Good.

We’re inclined to agree with Scott, here — those subpoenas seem to have been working so far.
