Legal Opinion

Zachary Basu, writing for Axios, reports on an interesting development into the Mueller Report.

More than 650 former federal prosecutors have signed onto a statement asserting that if the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) did not prohibit a sitting president from being indicted, President Trump would be charged with obstruction of justice.

I’m waiting for the Robert Mueller testimony asserting that he would have indicted Donald Trump were it not for the OLC opinion. While I understand my bias here, I’m saddened Mueller did not just go ahead and indict him for obsctruction. It would have made headlines, but not much else would have changed I don’t think.
