In light of James Comey's testimony yesterday, and the responses by President Trump (through his lawyer and personally) I was wondering, what could happen to President Trump.
Today, President Trump offered to testify under oath about his meetings with James Comey.
Since the statements about Michael Flynn given by President Trump and James Comey directly contradict each other, someone is clearly lying.
- Assuming that President Trump is, for any reason, found guilty of perjury, would the consequences be worse than if he had just admitted to what James Comey claimed he said? The question is a hypothetical scenario. I am not implying anything.
Just for clarification: President Trump offered to testify under oath. I assume this could happen in a similar manner to James Comey. So if President Trump was to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, and afterwards found guilty of lying there, would this be worse than giving in to Comey's claims?
