But the conclusion of the 22 year old legal memo by the Office of Legal Counsel is not law, and courts are free to disagree, and their conclusions are pretty weak anyway IMHO. "We think our argument is at least plausible." Oh yeah, you can take that to the bank. :lol:
:snippity:
Possibly true but note that the 1973 OLC memo from the Nixon era that a sitting president cannot be indicted has been cited multiple times since then. The 2000 memo would allow the DoJ to act against Trump without having to create new policy. Then it would be up to a judge to decide the Constitutional questions that an indictment might generate. I don't think an indictment is a done deal but we know a sitting grand jury is active and hearing testimony.

Recall that the Watergate grand jury wanted to throw the book at Nixon but Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski said he would not sign an indictment, most likely because of the OLC memo.

The former deputy counsel to President Donald Trump has been subpoenaed in the federal criminal probe of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, two sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.

Patrick Philbin was subpoenaed for testimony and documents, according to one of the sources. Philbin worked in the White House counsel’s office under Pat Cipollone, who also was also subpoenaed for documents and testimony, according to sources.

Philbin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Can we speculate if other phones were confiscated, but the owners of said phones haven't said anything yet?

Golly, Scott, did they have a warrant signed by a judge, huh, Scott? You haven't said whether they had a warrant signed by a judge.

The famous, "Think of the children!!!" exception to complying with a warrant. :roll:

"For completeness," this is more likely about January 6 than yesterday's search warrant.

This just shows to go you that our wise and respected elected leaders do not know how to construct the simplest of sentences. Wasn't it Groucho who once commented something like, "This morning I got up and saw an elephant in my pajamas. What it was doing in my pajamas, I'll never know."

I don't have the link handy, but the same guy also wanted to send Pence along the way with Bolton.

If the U.S. under Joe Biden/Democrats is such craphole banana republic as the cult thinks it is, why would Justice bother prosecuting someone who tried to kill tfg's former adviser?
