If Trump is innocent, why are all the president’s men lying?

Donald Trump has insisted from the start that the Mueller investigation into collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election is a “witch hunt” and that nothing illegal took place.

Telling the truth?

If that’s the case, why are all of the president’s men lying to Mueller’s investigators, a phenomenon not seen since the Watergate scandal? “This many lies is unusual,” said Barbara McQuade, a former U.S. attorney in Michigan. “This group seems particularly insistent.”

–Michael Cohen, Trunp’s personal “fixer”;

–George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor;

–Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security advisor;

–Richard Gates, deputy campaign chairman.

Then there’s Jerome Corsi, who claimed Mueller pressured him to commit perjury. This is a guy who made his rep on the political right by spreading lies that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States.

Corsi was working with Roger Stone, a longtime Trump political advisor, who said he would never betray the president.

Why would Stone say that if Trump did nothing illegal?
