1/Here is an article that makes a clear case for challenging Mueller’s decision not to indict Trump for Obstruction of Justice- our Dem Reps should file suit immediately.… via @just_security
2/Savoy argues that the OLC memo’s justification for immunity depends on whether impeachment is a viable alternative to indictment and where, as now, impeachment is not an effective means for upholding the rule of law the Constitution requires indictment 👇
3/Hence Mueller’s decision whether to indict must be informed by the GOP’s refusal to check Trump and, if impeached, by the GOP Senate’s publicly stated refusal to remove him. Thus, not indicting Trump effectively shields him from accountability and nullifies the rule of law.
5/The rational that underlies the DOJ policy weighs the burdens indictment and criminal prosecution would impose on a president’s ability to carry out his official duties against the Constitutional imperative that says no man should be held above the law including the president
McConnell has made his views on impeachment clear stating that even if Trump is impeached by the House he will not be tried by the Senate.This nullifies the rational for immunity. Hence, because impeachment is no longer a means to hold Trump accountable, he must be indicted.
