As the Russia scandal continues to unfold at a staggering pace, the nation is already abuzz with the prospect of a Trump presidency ending before its first year is out. Impeachment began being discussed as soon as Trump took office, but as the drip of explosive leaks from the intelligence community continues to paint a bleaker and bleaker picture for the Trump team, the actual terms of a presidential indictment are coming into the discussion.
A New York Times Freedom Of Information Act just helped clear up a lot of the confusion surrounding whether or not a president can actually be indicted for his actions. A 56-page memo from the Clinton era was just unearthed for the first time and it indicates that yes, a President can be indicted while in office.
“It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of and are contrary to, the president’s official duties. In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law” reads the memo from the independent counsel of Bill Clinton, Kenneth Starr.
Starr decided to let Congress impeach Clinton rather than try to bring an indictment himself. But seeing as we are now faced with a Republican congress that has indicated that they have no intention of bringing the public humiliation of an impeachment upon themselves, it’s very reassuring to know that Special Prosecutor Mueller has the power to punish the traitor himself.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
