Robert De Niro believes Robert Mueller will still put Donald Trump ‘away for a long time’
De Niro says it’s his civic duty to portray Special Counsel Robert Mueller on “Saturday Night Live,” and even considers it his duty to channel the prosecutor’s bravado on the comedy sketch show.
“I consider it my civic duty to do that part — just to be there because [Mueller] doesn’t say much, but he doesn’t have to. It’s that simple,” De Niro told the Hollywood Reporter ahead of the Tribeca Film Festival in an interview published on Friday. “I might even be happier the day that Mueller puts him in handcuffs, takes him in an orange jumpsuit and puts him away for a long time.”
In discussing Barr’s assessment of Mueller’s report, De Niro insisted the summary doesn’t tell the entire story and was simply a ruse that allowed Trump to come out the other side looking more auspicious.
“It’s pathetic. You know that’s interesting. That Democrats are trying to do the right thing and say, ‘We’re waiting for justice to come,’ and then it doesn’t come,” De Niro, 75, lamented. “Or it will come in a way – Mueller presented it in a way that’s up to us and Congress to make, come up with the results, but now it’s being barred by Barr. And that’s to be seen now what Congress will do and how effective they’re going to be.”
“But I think there’s going to be a lot of mass demonstrations, a lot of protests if this is not resolved. We have to know what went on. We have to know. The handwriting is on the wall.”
De Niro has long claimed that president Trump will serve jail time for the alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 election. So really this is nothing new, just a tad more delusional.
