Rudy Giuliani: Mueller's Team Can't Indict President Trump
Rudy Giuliani told multiple news outlets that Robert Mueller's investigators know they can't indict a sitting president. This isn't exactly a surprise.
According to CNN, the standing guidelines from the Department of Justice say exactly that. The issue of possibly indicting a sitting president came up during the Nixon and Clinton administrations.
And the DOJ has maintained a president can be impeached, but not indicted. But President Donald Trump isn't in the clear just yet.
Special counsel Mueller is expected to issue a report when his investigation is complete. If that report implicates the president in any wrongdoing, that might motivate the House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings.
