Battle of Wits

So the New York Time released a possible list of questions that Mueller reportedly gave Trump’s legal team.  Now of course, that situation has created a firestorm of stories and questions.  Who leaked the list?  Why? Who aims to benefit? How many tweets was Trump going to devote to it?  How many times would he say “Collusion” or “Witch Hunt”?  But what has been noted is the phrasing behind the question.  Their design seem intended to appeal to Trump’s love of explaining things as opposed to short, succinct, yes or no answers.  Now, critics of the investigation say that the point of these questions is to catch Trump in a lie.  I say any question, no matter how it’s phrased, is likely to have that happen, because the man publicly lies, on average, 5 times a day, and that’s not hyperbole.  The funny thing is, I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump went and answered these questions anyway, because all the people around him are almost certainly telling him not to, and Trump a) doesn’t like being told what to do, and b) thinks he’s too intelligent to be tricked.  Gotta love his confidence, right?
