Ken Starr has some really bad news for President Donald Trump. The former independent counsel whose investigation directly led to the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton says, “I think the president can be indicted.”
Starr is no liberal lawyer. He served as President George H.W. Bush’s Solicitor General. John Roberts, now the U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, was his deputy. In recent years, Starr served as the Chancellor of Baylor University, a private Christian university based in Waco, Texas.
“No one is above the law,” Starr told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday. “And so in my judgment the president can in fact be indicted,” he adds, as Mediaite reports.
Of course, nothing is ever easy – or definitive.
Starr warns, “we do not have an authoritative resolution on the issue.” And he says it “cannot happen, as I see it, under Justice Department policy that’s enforceable on Bob Mueller,” the special counsel investigating President Trump and Russia’s attack on the U.S. election.
Things can change.
And Starr also delivers more bad news for this president.
“The president is subject to subpoena,” Starr says.
READ: Here is the resolution from House Democrats condemning Trump’s racist attacks on congresswomen of color
On Tuesday, House Democrats formally introduced a resolution condemning President Donald Trump for his racist social media attacks on Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).
The full text, reported by NBC News, can be read below:
Whereas the Founders conceived America as a haven of refuge for people fleeing from religious and political persecution, and Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison all emphasized that the Nation gained as it attracted new people in search of freedom and livelihood for their families;
Trump hit with a brutal and hilarious backlash for hypocritically whining about Dem congresswomen using swear words
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again took to Twitter to rant about the "Squad" of Democratic congresswomen of color who he previously suggested should leave the country. This time, he complained, among other things, that they use obscene language:
.....shouting of the F...word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!
Trump scrambles to stop GOP from voting on House resolution calling him racist: ‘Republicans should not show weakness!’
President Donald Trump begged House Republicans not to join Democrats in condemning him for racist tweets against four congresswomen -- and stepped up his attacks on the first-year lawmakers.
House Democrats plan to vote Tuesday on a formal condemnation of the president for repeatedly telling the quartet of lawmakers to go back to their home countries, although only one was not born in the U.S. and has become an American citizen.
"Those Tweets were NOT Racist," Trump insisted. "I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show 'weakness' and fall into their trap."
