'No Recollection': What Trump Said in His Written Answers to Mueller

(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump escaped a subpoena forcing him to testify -- despite offering only written answers that the special counsel determined to be “inadequate” -- because Robert Mueller’s office was wary of the “substantial delay” from a legal battle.

Mueller’s decision to forgo a court fight to compel the president’s testimony may be one of Trump’s biggest victories during the probe and came despite the president frustrating investigators by saying more than two dozen times in his written responses that he did not recall or remember critical events during and after his presidential campaign.

“We made that decision in view of the substantial delay that such an investigative step would likely produce at a late stage in our investigation,” according to the special counsel’s report released by the Justice Department on Thursday.

“We also assessed that based on the significant body of evidence we had already obtained of the president’s actions and his public and private statements describing or explaining those actions, we had sufficient evidence to understand relevant events and to make certain assessments without the president’s testimony.”

No recollection, wasn't that Reagan's response when interviewed about Iran-Contra?

2. We waited 2 years already.

Sounds kinda lame for the lynchpin testimony.

3. "We already know he's guilty AF

and thought it was better to turn the at least ten times he obstructed justice and all of his circle's active work with the Russians to wreck our democracy over to Congress to remove him from the office he stole than to wait for whatever bullshitted nonsense he'd spew in an interview."
