Adam Schiff: There Is a Very Powerful Case To Be Made that You Can Indict a Sitting President
‘That bar has already been passed’
SCHIFF: "But I think, actually, when you look at the OLC opinions, there is a very powerful case to be made that you can indict a sitting president. It's more difficult to make the case that they should be tried while they're in office, because that would very disruptive of the president's responsibilities. But the only argument -- and it was really not the focus of attention in those prior OLC opinions -- the only argument was made was that it would stigmatize the president."
