Pelosi Breaks With Justice: Trump Can be Indicted

The Axios headline above is a bit sensationalist. She doesn’t really come out and say that but it is implied. And of course a sitting President can be indicted. This “guideline” from the DoJ is silly. If a President murders someone on camera, you’re gonna wait for him to finish his term before you arrest them?

In an interview to air on NBC’s “Today,” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie asks Nancy Pelosi, who will become House speaker at around 1:30 pm Thursday: “Do you believe the special counsel should honor and observe the Department of Justice guidance that states a sitting president cannot be indicted?”

The big picture: Pelosi replied, according to an excerpt from NBC: “No, I mean I don’t think — I do not think that that is conclusive. No, I do not.” With that response, she becomes the highest ranking official to suggest President Trump could be indicted while in office.
