1. Removing him should be the focus. NY and SDNY won't be silenced.

I agree 100% we must win in 2020. That way, there will be no impediments to indicting him.

I feel that the NY AG is not going to let his position stand in the way of any indictments though. The DOJ rules are BS and should be challenged. If there were a Democrat in the same position as Trump, a GOP AG would have him or her indicted. We all know that is true

8. It was the Clinton DOJ who reaffirmed the ruling in 2000.

The department reaffirmed the policy in a 2000 memo, saying court decisions in the intervening years had not changed its conclusion that a sitting president is “constitutionally immune” from indictment and criminal prosecution. It concluded that criminal charges against a president would “violate the constitutional separation of powers” delineating the authority of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the U.S. government.

“The indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions,” the memo stated.

9. It's a DOJ MEMO, an OPINION, NOT a RULING.

NO COURT has RULED on the issue. What you cite is simply the work of DOJ attorneys issuing an OPINION that is NOT binding on anyone outside the DOJ. The NY State DA is free to do as they please and indict if they so choose.

3. If Trump is re-elected, not only does he get off free and clear, he has four years

to complete the destruction of our country at his leisure. What a deal.

4. Which is BS

If you can’t indict a sitting president than the statute of limitations should pause. So that way we don’t actually have someone above the law.

6. If you are wanted for a crime in a state,

 

and you leave the country, the statute of limitations is paused until you return. I think although I am not positive, that just going to another state can pause it also. It might end up going to the Supreme Court if he is reelected.

7. There is no tolling of the statute of limitations

However, a sealed indictment can be filed with the court and unsealed when the culprit is available to be tried.

10. Yes that was what I thought

There is an argument for tolling it.
