WATCH: Ex-US Attorney explains to Joy Reid why Trump dictating Don Jr.’s lies puts him in Mueller’s crosshairs

According to Barbara McQuade, if Trump did dictate the statement then he was trying to mislead the public and the government. “It is what prosecutors call a ‘consciousness of guilt effort,'” McQuade explained. “If you are there telling a story that later is proved not true, you know people begin asking what the motives are for that. And one motive might be that you were trying to conceal the truth because you know that you are guilty of a crime.”

“Typically what you want to do in an investigation is gather as much information as you can in documents and lower-level participants in a conspiracy to learn as much as you can,” the former federal prosecutor advised. “Then, when you have the opportunity to confront someone who might be the very big fish in a case like this, you have it.” “So my guess is that Mueller will refrain from doing that,” she continued. “But at some point he may very well want to ask those questions.”
