Giuliani: Mueller's team told Trump's lawyers they can't indict a president

Giuliani: Mueller's team told Trump's lawyers they can't indict a president


(CNN)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.
The inability to indict a sitting president has been the position of the Office of Legal Counsel in the Justice Department since the Nixon administration and reaffirmed in the Clinton administration, but it has never been tested in court.

It had been an open question whether, if investigators found potentially criminal evidence against Trump, Mueller's team would try to challenge those Justice Department guidelines.
CNN reached out to Mueller's team. They declined to comment.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein publicly discussed the issue earlier this month at an event held by the Freedom Forum Institute. He was asked if a sitting president can be indicted.
"I'm not going to answer this in the context of any current matters, so you shouldn't draw any inference about it," Rosenstein said. "But the Department of Justice has in the past, when the issue arose, has opined that a sitting President cannot be indicted. There's been a lot of speculation in the media about this, I just don't have anything more to say about it." Rosenstein oversees the special counsel probe.
Giuliani tells CNN the special counsel's team has decided that "they have to follow the Justice Department rules."

"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.
It would then be up to the House of Representatives to decide what to do about with the special counsel's report -- and whether to pursue articles of impeachment.
Giuliani also said that he is using the one-year anniversary of the Mueller probe, which is Thursday, to push the special counsel to disclose how much money is being spent, and to actively begin negotiating with Trump's legal team over any Trump interview Mueller is seeking.
"Do you really need an interview?" Giuliani said he wants Mueller's team to answer.
"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."

No s***. The Constitution is very clear on what can happen to a president. That's why the special counsel can only make a recommendation to Congress. Then based on that recommendation Congress can decide whether to impeach or not. Since Congress is controlled by the Republicans this is purposely being dragged out to go past the midterms where the Democrats hope that the complexion of Congress changes.

I think its good to hear that Mueller will abide by the law.

Also it should be stated that there is NO REASON to indict the President.

We should all be glad that our corrupt FBI/DOJ wasted all of this time, resources, tax dollars etc all to smear the presidency of Donald Trump. Sad.

This is nothing more than a distraction. I mean it's got to the point where a washed up pornstar and her sleazy lawyer is on the face of mainstream news 24/7....what 150x in the last month or so??? For something nobody cares about that allegedly happened long before Trump even thought about running for POTUS. If it happened while in office lets say...like what a certain former POTUS did, then I'd say that's a big deal, it's a distraction, it's disrespectful, and it's a stain on the office (no pun intended) and I would think that's grounds for impeachment, even if it's not illegal. And for Clinton even, esp during his AR days, many times it WAS illegal what he was doing whether it was his coke habit or the multiple women who have accused him (and some ever settled out of court) for sexual assault.

There is no Russian collusion w/ the Trump campaign in the 2016 election. NONE. The msm's main job following the 2016 election was to smear Trump 24/7 at all costs, and censor conservatives, all the way til the midterms. To spread lies and negative narratives so much that people begin to accept it as truth, and pray dems win in 2018 midterms so they can attempt to impeach Trump.

It's not about an indictment; it's about cooperating with an investigation, including submitting to subpoenas in the gathering of information, testimony, and evidence (refer to Nixon and Clinton cases)....which won't lead to an indictment, but which could lead to consideration of impeachment charges.

Once Mueller issues his report, barring any clear evidence of criminal malfeasance Dems would do well to pass on impeachment even if it is warranted....and just let the voters decide in the next elections. Period. That verdict of course will hinge on what if anything Mueller finds. Stay tuned.

That help the burst a bit? I'm willing to PayPal funds for Bwana to hold. I don't even want the money I want Otters proceeds donated in his name 1/2 to the ACLU and 1/2 to the New York Times. Maybe planned parenthood whichever he hates more.
