Can A Sitting U.S. President Be Indicted?
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
For the first time, a sitting president is tied to a federal crime, having directed illegal hush-money payments to women (porn actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal) via his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, during his presidential campaign. President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen has also pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including campaign finance violations, tax fraud, etc. So far, although Trump is not yet charged with any crimes, the question of whether a sitting president can be prosecuted is a matter of legal dispute.
A guilty plea from Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, means the president could face charges in the future. But former U.S. federal prosecutor Barak Cohen says in August of 2018 that it’s unlikely to happen while Trump is in office, in the video “Can a sitting president be indicted in the U.S.?”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, says he thinks President Donald Trump could be indicted, despite Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani expressing otherwise. “The President is not above the law, and an indictment — if that’s the course that Robert Mueller chooses to go — I believe would be upheld by the courts,” Blumenthal said on CNN’s “The Situation Room.”in the video “Senator: Giuliani is wrong. Trump can be indicted” below:
