President Trump Cannot Be Indicted


The New York Times has apparently developed a newfound respect for Kenneth Starr’s independent counsel investigation into then-President Bill Clinton.

Recently, Times staffers breathlessly reported that they had unearthed a memo, which according to the newspaper “sheds fresh light on a constitutional puzzle that is taking on mounting significance amid the Trump-Russia inquiry: Can a sitting president be indicted?”

The memo was obtained by the Times using the Freedom of Information Act, and the newspaper is employing the document’s contents in order to contradict what the Times referred to as the “generally held view that presidents are immune from prosecution while in office.”
