The idea that a sitting president can not be indicted is only based on the DOJ. It seems that back when the GOP was investigating Clinton, at least Ken Starr thought you could indict a sitting president for serious crimes not tied to his Presidential duties. I guess like usual the indictment of a president in office depends on which party the president belongs to.

I believe Ken Star - a devout republican - now believes you CANNOT indict a sitting president. Funny how the republicans always change their tunes when it is one of their own committing the crimes.

I look forward to the DOJ prosecuting congress for the same violations.

Any and all of them in violation of campaign finance laws. No more slaps on the wrist. Prosecute all of them to the fullest extent of the law.
