Trump, Arpaio and Muller;
Also: "Pay No Attention to the Crazy Man in the White House"

Trump may have been sending a signal to his underlings who are or may be under threat of indictment by the Special Counsel. The message is: "Stay strong, don't rat me out. Even if they convict you, I have your back."

Of course, Trump can't offer to cover their legal fees. That might be a political step too far, if not obstruction of justice. But Trump clearly has nothing but contempt for the judicial process and, when it comes to Federal criminal cases, he can fuck things up.

Spiro Agnew's spirit is probably bracing Nixon's and asking him "why the fuck didn't you help me like that?"

Meanwhile, The Secretary of State for Exxon went on a Sunday talk show and basically said that President* Trump does not speak for the United States.
Tillerson said on "Fox News Sunday" that the United States was committed to freedom and "equal treatment of people the world over" when posed the question by anchor Chris Wallace.

"I don't believe anyone doubts the American people's values," Tillerson said.

"And the President's values?" Wallace asked.

"The President speaks for himself," Tillerson said.
So the official policy of the State Department is that the President is a crazy old coot and everyone should ignore what he says.

Good to know.
