Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Gerald Rivera said it’d be a “horrible” idea if President Donald Trump testified under oath about his interactions with now-fired FBI Director James Comey.
“If I were his attorney, I would grab him by the ankles to prevent him from going into a room and given sworn testimony… walk into a perjury trap,” Rivera said.
“You never know what questions they’re going to ask,” he added.
Co-host Sandra Smith noted that Trump saying he would testify under oath suggests he has nothing to hide, but Rivera stressed that’s not the point.
“There’s only one danger the president now faces,” he continued, explaining that is saying something that may contradict something he said previously, or may say at a future date.
“Why open yourself to a perjury trap, because that’s his only vulnerability now,” Rivera said.
“[Trump’s] trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory,” he concluded. “He emerged unscathed from the Comey hearings, he should declare victory and move on.”
