Dem Sen. Blumenthal: Lack of Trump Indictment ‘Probably Dictated as Much’ by Policy You Can’t Indict POTUS

IAN HANCHETT

During an interview with CNN on Saturday, Senate Judiciary Committee member Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated that the fact that President Trump wasn’t indicted by the Mueller report “is probably dictated as much by the policies that the Department of Justice has adopted as a result of the Office of Legal Counsel opinion.”

Blumenthal said, “The fact that there’s no indictment of the president is probably dictated as much by the policies that the Department of Justice has adopted as a result of the Office of Legal Counsel opinion. It’s not binding, but Bob Mueller probably decided that he couldn’t indict a sitting president. But there has been deeply serious wrongdoing here that goes to our national security. There was an attack on America. It was by the Russians, and there’s evidence that the Trump campaign benefitted from it, in fact, colluded with it. And that evidence deserves to be made public and the questions answered that are on Americans’ minds.”
