17. IMHO, trump wont have any trouble testifying under oath

He has done it many times before and it looks like he hasn't had much of a problem with it. If they ask him to actually read something under oath, however, it may prove more problematic for him.

trump is a pathological liar. He believes his own lies because everything he says is absolute truth - to him. It has never mattered to him whether or not others believed him because 'others' do not matter to him and never have.

He has no interest or belief in consequences because they are always in his favor. If things don't go his way, he doesn't notice because he just bends circumstances to his will and continues his delusion that he is superior and in control.

trump doesn't recognize the Rule of Law as having anything to do with him. It is possible his testimony will not go as smoothly as it has in the past because he is way out of his league. He isn't the CEO of a company being sued, nor is he suing someone. He is the President of the U.S. being investigated for felony Obstruction of Justice, money laundering and perhaps even treason. It is also possible he is dealing with the beginning stages of dementia so his disconnects will be more pronounced than usual, especially under the pressure of sworn testimony. But that probably won't matter to him.

I could definitely be wrong about the dementia thing, but he has shown some of the symptoms for sure. Like when he was in Israel, and just stood up during his conversation with Netanyahu, blinking his eyes in confusion while wandering off. His handlers had to guide him gently back. His behavior seemed pretty suspect to me.

His mind may still be sharp as a tack but he could have ADHD, along with the ever-present galloping malignant narcissism, over-weening hubris and pathological mendacity. It is now pretty clear that trump has a sociopathic lack of empathy coupled with a blindingly incurious ego as well.

So, my unsolicited and amateur diagnosis is that our POTUS is one obscene mess.

There may be a part of his still functioning brain that is quite eager to stand alone in the brightest spotlight on the best center stage ever no matter the cost. Testifying in front of Congress and before the World will be ideal for him because this could surely be his "moment". If he is caught perjuring himself, he will just do what he always does, he will keep on lying because it works.

trump's moment in the sun and his chance to set a ratings record with an audience whose numbers might even be greater than Obama's could finally grant him his deepest, most passionate desire. This might be the most tremendous win ever and for trump it could be 100% worth it.

Just my opinion [img][/img]
