Trump's Desperation: If Threats Don't Work, Maybe Flattery Will

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer on Tuesday claimed Trump has sent special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, private messages of “appreciation and greetings.”

Does Robert Mueller seem to you like the kind of person who would be swayed by flattery?
John Dowd, one of the lead attorneys on Trump’s outside legal team, told USA Today that Trump “has sent messages back and forth” but declined to clarify.
"Back and forth"?
“We get along well with Bob Mueller; our communications have been constructive,” he said. “But it is important that our communications remain confidential. It’s important that there not be any breakdown in that trust.”
It was not clear whether Mueller sent any messages to Trump, and the special counsel’s office did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment.
Of course they didn't. And of course HE didn't. These are not flattery-addicted, publicity-addicted people like the Trump Cabal. These are serious and close-mouthed investigators and prosecutors doing their job.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
