Berkeley, California attorney Alexander Stern, released a bombshell report on Friday that suggests President Donald Trump may be under a sealed indictment without even knowing.
The report gathered eight leading criminal law professors across the country. The Department of Justice has argued that indicting President Trump could distract him from his presidential duties, but Stern said a sealed indictment could take away that concern.
“The Department of Justice says prosecuting a sitting president can impermissibly distract him. However, indictments under seal, remove this fear,” Stern wrote in the report.
A sealed indictment could start the process under the radar, thus eliminating the potential distractions that a public indictment would create. If a sealed indictment takes place, President Trump would not face any consequences until after he leaves office.
“It just sets the process in motion formally. It empowers the courts to have authority over Mr.Trump, so that perhaps if Mr. Mueller is fired or otherwise leaves his post, the judicial branch will have jurisdiction and they are not beholden to Mr. Trump,” Stern told Raw Story.
A sealed indictment would remove the statute of limitation concern.
Okay now I have NO idea if this is what is really happening, but knowing how far ahead of the curve Robert Mueller always is, I would not be at all surprised that it is EXACTLY what is happening.
If true that would mean that Trump is essentially in a trap that will trigger even if he finds a way to fire Mueller, and that he can do nothing to avoid.
Man, everything about that sounds good to me.
