Democratic Senator Says We're Headed Toward INDICTMENT of POTUS!
There have certainly been a number of firsts within this still-young Trump administration.
It may or may not be the first time that we’ve served McDonald’s to a championship team.

And it is certainly the first time that a sitting President might be indicted. At least according to one Senator from Rhode Island.
Never in thee history of our great nation has something like this been considered, and many on the left are clamoring for it.
Unfortunately for them, there is a longstanding belief in the Department of Justice that a sitting President cannot be indicted, however, he would be eligible to face the music once he leaves office.
According to Rudy Giuliani:
“The Justice Department memos going back to before Nixon say that you cannot indict a sitting president, you have to impeach him. Now there was a little time in which there was some dispute about that, but they acknowledged to us orally that they understand that they can’t violate the Justice Department rules.
“We think it’s bigger than that. We think it’s a constitutional rule, but I don’t think you’re ever going to confront that because nobody’s ever going to indict a sitting president. So, what does that leave them with? That leaves them with writing a report.”
But does that mean that Mueller would play by the rules?
I suppose the only way to find out is to see this out to its inevitable end, whether that be calm, collusion, or calamity.
