U.S. President Donald Trump was set to get his first physical on Friday January 12th 2018. The main goal of the health checks was to ascertain if he was mentally well to run the Country.
Trump was accused of mental issues in Steve Bannon’s book entitled “Fire and Fury.”
Bannon was set to face the House Intel Committee about Russia. His book made many assumptions causing him to become a person of interest in the investigation.
Meanwhile Trump’s allies advised him not to meet with Mueller. There was high anticipation after it was reported that such a meeting could take place.
It would be the first time the President would be actually be questioned by Mueller if he agreed.
Mueller vs. Trump
It wasn’t clear if such a meeting would transpire. What was clear though was the worry of Trump’s allies. They didn’t believe it was a good idea.
Trump said, “We’ll see what happens. I mean, certainly, I’ll see what happens. But when they have no collusion and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview.”
Reports from a source in Trump’s legal team said “we haven’t closed any doors. We haven’t made any decisions.”
Trump apparently got ahead of himself with his answer.
Bannon And Inquiry
Bannon’s book was big news. The content of the book caused chaos at the White House and a stir in the media. Trump and his team denied the allegations of the book, calling them lies.
The inquiry now zoned in on Bannon. He was likely a source of information, it must not be ascertained if that information was true or false.
Bannon called the meeting between Russians and Donald Trump Jr. “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
This statement received a strong rebuttal from the White House and President Trump.
Despite the denunciation of such a comment it was a concern of the inquiry. This was expected to be one of the questions Bannon would be questioned on.
Bannon made accusations regarding Russia and those allegations are what will see him facing questioning.
Bannon said Trump wasn’t mentally fit creating concerns. Due to this Trump will face his first physical.
“I think it’s going to go very well. I’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t,” Trump said.
There were concerns that whatever the doctor found out may never become public. The findings revealed would have to be accepted as absolute truth.
