Mueller told Trump's legal team he will not indict the president, Giuliani tells Fox News

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed May 16, 2018 6:27 pm

Nothing to indict President Trump on. This whole thing is nothing but one big fiasco.

"President Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller has told the president's legal team he will follow Justice Department guidance and not seek an indictment against Trump. Giuliani, himself a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, also told Fox that Mueller's investigators have not responded to five information requests from the president's team.

That has forced Trump's legal team to push off making a decision about whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel -- a decision they had hoped to reach by Thursday. The precedent that federal prosecutors cannot indict a sitting president is laid out in a 1999 Justice Department memo. Giuliani told Fox News that Mueller has no choice but to follow its guidance. "This case is essentially over," Giuliani said. "They're just in denial."

Here's one from the f...ing M0R0NS favorite "Fake News" networks, ie, the Communist News Network (CNN)!! Splody heads again!!! =D>
Giuliani: Mueller's team will not indict Trump

(CNN)Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has informed President Donald Trump's attorneys that they have concluded that 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. It is not about any assessment of the evidence Mueller's team has compiled.

A lack of an indictment would not necessarily mean the President is in the clear. Mueller could issue a report making referrals or recommendations to the House of Representatives.

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.

I wouldn't be surprised but my guess this is Mueller screwing with team trump much like NK has done.

Mueller will take down everyone around Trump and go after him when he's out of office in about 2.5 years or less.

You state:

"Nothing to indict President Trump on. This whole thing is nothing but one big fiasco."

Then quote:

"........Robert Mueller has told the president's legal team he will follow Justice Department guidance and not seek an indictment against Trump."'
A blind man can see there is little connection between those two statements.

Exactly.

There will almost certainly be a an impeachment findings report of some find, which is a recommendation to impeach. The Dems will most likely act on it in the house come Jan 2019, then the Senate will most likely drop it, centure at wost.

Rump's family and friends are another matter......and Rump could be charged come Jan 2021

That's double speak.

In DOJ language a target means they plan to indite, if they have determined they are unable to indite a President then a President can not ever be considered a target.

He is the subject in the investigation ....they are investigating his appearent crimes but ( probably) can't legally charge him because he's the President. They will probably recommend impeachment, may list him as an indited coconcirator as was done with Nixon, or may hold the charges until he's out of office in 2021 and can be indited.

Its is hard to see with one's head stuck in the sand.
Just because Dt is a great liar/deflector, does not automatically mean he is innocent.
