On Wednesday, a new report revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly informed the legal team representing President Donald Trump that they cannot indict the president, according to a lawyer for the president.
“All they get to do is write a report,” Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told CNN. “They can’t indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us.”
Fox News noted that “The precedent that federal prosecutors cannot indict a sitting president is laid out in a 1999 Justice Department memo.”
Giuliani claims that Mueller has no choice but to follow the memo’s instruction, signaling it might be game over for Mueller.
“This case is essentially over,” Giuliani said. “They’re just in denial.”
The news comes as Mueller’s team has reportedly issued a subpoena for Jason Sullivan, a social media expert who was hired by Trump ally Roger Stone during the 2016 election.
