Giuliani Says Mueller's Team Won't Indict Sitting President

President Donald Trump's new lead attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has a knack for sensationalism This was evidenced by a series of interviews with the media in his first week on the job. And now Giuliani has told CNN that he heard a very specific acknowledgment from Mueller. Giuliani says he received word from the special counsel's team that they cannot indict a sitting president. Giuliani cited longstanding Justice Department policy that sitting presidents cannot be indicted. The policy has been in effect since the Nixon administration. Rod Rosenstein affirmed there is a precedent holding that sitting presidents cannot be indicted. "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." Rod Rosenstein Though experts agree, they say a report could be as damning to Trump as an indictment. It could move lawmakers to removed the President from office, especially if released to the public.
