Giuliani: Mueller’s Team Told Trump’s Lawyers They ‘Can’t Indict A Sitting President’

Do you LOVE America?


    According to Rudy Giuliani, special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has informed President Donald Trump’s attorneys that they have come to the conclusion 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, reported CNN. The mainstream media propaganda outlet wants everyone to know that this isn’t an indication that Mueller’s evidence-less investigation has failed to reach the conclusion CNN and other government propaganda outlets want. 

    In the absence of an indictment,  Mueller could issue a report making referrals or recommendations to the House of Representatives.  But that’s about it.  The special counsel’s conclusion that they cannot indict Donald Trump, much to the chagrin of the mainstream media, as the sitting president signals that it would be left to Congress to address any finding of wrongdoing by Trump in the investigation.

    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.

    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, to which he responded with an unclear answer. “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.

    “He [Mueller] didn’t seem to want to give the answer,” Giuliani said of Mueller’s inability to indict a sitting president. “It reminded me of that scene in ‘The Godfather,’ with Sonny and the Godfather, where he said, ‘Oh, you’re going to take care of us? We can take care of ourselves.’ One of his assistants broke in and said, ‘Well, of course, we’re bound by Justice Department policies.’ Mueller looked at him like, ‘Don’t interrupt me.'”

    Giuliani said the issue was left as an “open question” during the meeting, but that a deputy to Mueller followed up a few days later in a phone call to clarify that the special counsel plans to follow the Justice Department guidelines. Most legal experts have assumed Mueller (as an order follower for the government) would follow the Justice Department’s guidelines that bar such a prosecution.

      1. This isn’t news. Only the sheeple thought otherwise.

      2. Mueller and his team have been under enormous pressure to come up with something solid. If they had found something, they would have produced something. (Just like squeezing an orange.) They haven’t produced anything.

      3. Indict? For what? If anyone needs ‘indicting’ it’s Mueller and his team and a plethora of Obama left-overs in the FBI and Justice Dept. Heck, not to even stop there… there’s a whole hell of a lot of traitors up in Washington who sorely need to become aware of equal application of this nation’s laws.

      4. I’m waiting to hear from the usual idiots, keyboard commandos and self proclaimed experts on this site about this.

        Heartless= will be all knowing and experienced on all things law, indictments and Mueller.

        Deplorable Braveheart= will say he will shoot any investigator who shows up to his BOL.

        TharSheBlows= will somehow find a way to diss vets and prove how independent he is.

        • So I guess you’re an unusual idiot.

        • MJBN, uh, what exactly is your problem with me or anyone else on this site? Would you prefer any MSM site?

          • Because you’ve all proven yourselves to be POSERS. It’s sickening! But, don’t worry, I won’t call you posers out anymore. I’m done reading the comments. Go back and read some of your BS. It’s the same thing with you and others, I know what kind of BS is going to be in your post before you even write it. And I take offense to a lot of it, so I thought I’d give a little back. I bet you re-think your BS before you post now- I hope.

            • @ MJBN , don’t go away mad.. just go away. You are obviously an arse half… It would that teo of you to make an arse whole !????

          • TDBh – I’ve wondered the same thing. Best to just treat him like an addled mind is all. Obviously in this case right here by seemingly embracing Mueller’s efforts by going after those of us who feel this whole sham investigation has no validity. I ask him again – state YOUR opinions. Me personally, I’ll accept your insults MJBN. Such just don’t bother me. Raised enough kids and grandkids to have realized that people go through phases when growing up.

      5. I know I’ll get chastised for this since it’s off subject, but got to get the news out somehow. Seems Prez Trump for some unknown reason nominated another Leftist Judge to be on the 9th Dist. Circuit Court of Appeals as if the 9th ain’t leftist enough already. Please contact your Senator and ask them to oppose the appointment of Mark Bennett to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Trekker Out

        • If you get chastised … that is only because some haven’t come to the realization that Trump is no different than Obama, Bush, Clinton … etc.

          One day … reality will finally hit them about their savior ‘Orange Jeebus!

          • Also wondering about Jeff Sessions. When he was a Senator, he was “loud and proud” and gonna set the world on fire, but now that he’s the U.S.AG he’s quite as a church mouse. Just wondering what the Deep State has on him to keep him from acting on all the issues he was going to take on. Trekker Out. Lock Her Up!

      6. “They can’t indict a sitting President”

        How about if he stands up?

        OK, I admit that is just silly. But isn’t equally silly talking about indicting Trump when he din’t du nothin ?


        Lock her up – Lock her up

        Where’s the birth certificate Obama? Obama, your trial for treason, you ISIS sympathizer, is imminent (or it should be).


        But all this makes a good distraction from Jerusalem, protests (why were those people protesting? Inquiring minds want to know. But the msm doesn’t have a clue. Maybe it was the noise coming from over the wall as Isrealhell celebrated seventy years. Never mind. Back to the Trump Show.

        _ not even an update on the number dead. No stories of the grieving parents. Well, who cares anyway. They’re not one of us.



      7. I read somewhere else that only if a special circumstance exists can a sitting president face an idictment. What, like lying through his teeth? No, that’s part of the job description. Make America Grovel Again.

        • No one man, in this case Mueller, indict the head of one of the 3 co-equal branches of government. ONLY CONgress can do anything to POTUS…impeachment and conviction. And there have only been 2 POTUS Impeachment in history and there have been ZERO convictions…and No, Tricky Dick Nixon was not impeached.

          It would be a travesty if one man, a prosecutor or special Council or whatever could stop the elected POTUS.

      8. The “Powers That Be” can do anything they want to. They have criminalized politics. They have criminalized sex. They have criminalized the Constitution, free speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of expression. They have criminalized the Founding Fathers (white slave owners). They are criminalizing the Bill of Rights and the 2ND Amendment.

        Due process means sh*t. Public policy is being dictated by whores, hookers, prostitutes, courtesans, call girls, Playboy Playmates of the Month; their judgements carried out by fembot feministas and the #MeToo Movement. They can do anything they want to.

      9. I don’t know about indicting a sitting president but I do know he isn’t holding true to many of his promises. One being reversing Roe v Wade. He’s not going to make abortion illegal. He’s also filling the swamp with more rats. I am as disappointed now as I was excited when he won the election.

      10. Just more of the same old dog and pony show. No one seems to want to address what I think is the root of the entire worlds troubles. Too many parasite takers and too few producing makers. That situation isn’t long term sustainable.

      11. For crying aloud, indict somebody! It’s paid for with taxpayer money! Give us something for our taxes! Actually, it is better if they don’t do anything since they invariably screw it up like giving weapons to the wrong people! Yes, do nothing!

      12. Maxine Waters is going to go Ape-Shit.

      13. Just try and indict Trump and Israel will crash your plane or suicide you in a Florida hotel room.
