(Gateway Pundit) – That darn Constitution! Mueller’s team of liberal hack lawyers admitted to Giuliani they cannot indict President Trump.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has informed President Donald Trump’s attorneys that they have concluded that they cannot indict a sitting president, according to the President’s lawyer.
“All they get to do is write a report,” Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told CNN. “They can’t indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us.”
That conclusion is likely based on longstanding Justice Department guidelines. It is not about any assessment of the evidence Mueller’s team has compiled.
A lack of an indictment would not necessarily mean the President is in the clear. Mueller could issue a report making referrals or recommendations to the House of Representatives.
Giuliani tells CNN the special counsel’s team has decided that “they have to follow the Justice Department rules.”
The President’s lawyer also argued it’s a constitutional rule:
“The Justice Department memos going back to before Nixon say that you cannot indict a sitting president, you have to impeach him. Now there was a little time in which there was some dispute about that, but they acknowledged to us orally that they understand that they can’t violate the Justice Department rules,” Giuliani said.
“We think it’s bigger than that. 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. So, what does that leave them with? That leaves them with writing a report,” said Giuliani.
BUT DON’T BE FOOLED –MUELLER IS STILL AFTER TRUMP —
Mueller is going to issue a report on his findings, according to reports; they will move to impeach President Trump.
This is also why House Dems want to move towards impeachment; they know a sitting president cannot be indicted.
Former US Attorney, Joe diGenova blasted Robert Mueller over his presidential subpoena threat in his Fox News appearance with Tucker Carlson recently.
Joe diGenova even taunted Mueller and told him to go ahead and issue Trump a subpoena because it will be unconstitutional and illegal.
“There is no authority under federal law to issue a subpoena to a president of the United States to get testimony from him so it can be used at an impeachment proceeding,” diGenova continued.
