Mueller’s team has told Trump’s lawyers they can’t indict a sitting president

Well now, Mueller has finally found a clue.

The only way to remove a sitting president is through the impeachment process.

 

 

This includes a trial in the House of Representatives followed by an affirmative vote by the United States Senate.

Thus Bill Clinton was impeached by the House but the gutless, spineless Democrats failed to do their job and vote to impeach him.

He perjured himself under oath, what’s it take to get a progressive/Democrat/Socialist to follow the Constitution of the United states of America?

The special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has told President Donald Trump’s lawyers that they believe they can’t indict a sitting president, Trump’s new lead attorney Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday.

“All they get to do is write a report,” Giuliani told CNN. “They can’t indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us.”

 

 

Giuliani cited longstanding Justice Department policy that has been in place since the Nixon administration, which stipulates that sitting presidents cannot be indicted as it would hinder the executive branch from “accomplishing its constitutional functions” in a way that cannot “be justified by an overriding need.”

But Giuliani added that the issue was “bigger” than mere Justice Department precedent.

“We think it’s a constitutional rule, but I don’t think you’re ever going to confront that because nobody’s ever going to indict a sitting president,” Giuliani said.

“So, what does that leave them with?

That leaves them with writing a report.”

Mueller’s team declined to comment, but Giuliani is not the only one to make that argument in recent days.

The deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, also recently weighed in on the matter earlier in May, telling an audience at the Freedom Forum Institute that longstanding Justice Department precedent has held that sitting presidents cannot be indicted.

Please see the entire article below.

 

 

“The Department of Justice has in the past, when the issue arose, has opined that a sitting president cannot be indicted,” Rosenstein said.

“There’s been a lot of speculation in the media about this, I just don’t have anything more to say about it.”

Legal experts have also deemed it unlikely that Mueller would seek to indict Trump for the same reasons that Giuliani and Rosenstein outlined, but they have also suggested that Mueller’s report could be just as damning to Trump as an indictment.

For instance, a report could help propel certain lawmakers’ beliefs that Trump should be removed from office. And if the report is released to the public — which Rosenstein must decide — that pressure could only increase.

Giuliani also said that he was using Thursday, the one-year anniversary of the start of Mueller’s investigation, to pressure Mueller’s team to disclose the investigation’s costs, and to negotiate a potential interview with Trump that Mueller has sought.

“Do you really need an interview?” Giuliani said.

“You’ve got all the facts. You’ve got all the documents.

You’ve got all the explanations. We’re happy to tell you they’re not going to change.”

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    There remains the biggest obstacle which is no evidence of any legal reason to charge trump with any criminal activities.

    Just what is the crime, assuming Trump did have an affair with Stormy Daniels? NONE. Of course, the act of Blackmail and extortion by Stormy Daniels is sitting there like a Whore in Church!

    The corrupt MSM has made the victim, Trump, into a criminal with their spin on the facts as disclosed.

    Of course, the issue of who and why Mueller is even involved in the “Investigation” remains open. Based on the disclosed evidence of the FISA warrant it appears that this entire case rests on criminal actions by none other than Hillary – Sedition and Treason.. It now appears that Obama and his Executive Staff were involved as well which includes the FBI and DOJ and specifically Rosenstein himself. W T F ?

    Can the FBI and DOJ get back to the business of following the Rul of Law as clearly defined in the U. S. Constitution?

      Indeed, one would think Mueller, an attorney would understand how a sitting president is impeached. Look up Andrew Jackson.

    Mueller reminds me of that lost item you look everywhere for and finally find. It’s always in the last place you look. He is always right until he’s wrong and then he’s right that he was misinformed and you misunderstood his actions that would have been correct given the information he had been privileged to. (Thus making it the informants error and of course NOT his) What a study in rhetorical excursions he is proving to be!
