Can a sitting president be indicted?

Post by MaxEntropy_Man on Sun Jul 23, 2017 2:54 pm

A long hidden Clinton era legal memo obtained through the freedom of information act says yes.

“It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the president’s official duties,” the Starr office memo concludes. “In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law.”

"But this only applies to Democratic presidents. Not to Republican presidents! The memo clearly says President Clinton is not above the law. We fully agree. It doesn't mention President Trump, because he is indeed above the law."
