"Trump Advisers Lied Over And Over, Mueller Says. The Question Is, Why?"

But, anyway:
Yes, that certainly is a big question.
Some proposed answers:
   “In Trump world, everybody lies. Everybody doesn’t tell the truth. At the end of the day, they are all lying. I don’t know how Mueller can believe anybody,” said Louise Sunshine, a longtime executive with the Trump Organization.
   Trump allies say the president knows that many of the people around him are not trustworthy — and believes he can use that to his advantage if any of his onetime aides attempt to pin their wrongdoing on him.
   He has instructed Giuliani and his other lawyers to question the credibility of anyone who attacks him, according to White House aides who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations. After Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal attorney, pleaded guilty, the president on Twitter called him a “rat” who “makes up stories.”
   Sam Nunberg, a former Trump aide, said he believed that people around Trump lied to investigators because they were trying to make sure their version of events lined up with lies the president was telling to the American people.
   “They all conspired,” he said, “against themselves.”
Here's me, still patiently waiting on Mueller's conclusions...still skeptical about "collusion." If I were forced to lay money on it, I'd probably bet that Trump more-or-less emerges as the winner because progressives and the media have lost their shit and built up such fantastical tales of Manchurian candidacy and whatnot that most of what Mueller is likely to find will seem like small potatoes. 
   But I'm keeping an open mind.
   Sure doesn't look too good that everybody around him lies all the time. That's a reason not to elect the guy president. I expect this other stuff to turn out to be a wild gusynya chase...but obviously I could be wrong.
