Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said special counsel Bob Mueller has come up empty-handed with his Russia investigation and has no hard evidence to go after President Donald Trump.
“Well it’s pretty clear that they just don’t have anything substantively to go after the president on,” Huckabee said Thursday on Fox Busines” “Risk & Reward.”
“This is really creating a problem for a lot of the people in the news media who have spent a year fishing in waters where there is no fish,” he continued. “It’s like trying to catch fish in the dead sea. It’s just not there. At least it doesn’t appear to be. Now I think the president’s got to be careful that he doesn’t take this at face value and go into what could be a trap.”
Huckabee thinks Trump may be walking into a trap if he agrees to sit down with Mueller and warned the president about steering clear of perjury charges.
“If [Trump] goes in and has this interview with Mueller — because as we all know, the FBI and special prosecutors can ask you a simple question, you give an honest answer but if it doesn’t line up with an honest answer you gave before, in verbatim then they can say you lied,” Huckabee concluded. “Ask Martha Stuart how that turns out.”
