12. That's why I was asking

The most likely reason for something that doesnít sound legally correct (from someone like Mueller)... is that he didnít actually say what you thought you heard.

Hereís what I found so far:

"You would not indict because under the OLC opinion a sitting president cannot be indicted. It's unconstitutional," Mr. Mueller said in response to questions from Mr. Nadler.

That would be easy to mid-hear. But it isnít a statement that going against the OLC opinion would be unconstitutional... itís an accurate description of the OLCís opinion.
