Yes, it's just that simple. The long-held official policy of the Department of Justice is that a sitting president of the United States cannot be indicted, according to official DOJ memoranda. Even The New York Times agrees...
Mark Levin informed his listeners of this fact during his radio program Monday night, saying, "whether I agree with that position or not is quite beside the point."
"So all this talk about whether Trump personally is under investigation for obstruction of justice, or whether Trump violated the law, it will never go to court ... if Robert Mueller should seek to indict Trump, a sitting president, in the end the Supreme Court would throw it out," Levin continued.
So why does the endless cloud of investigation around the Trump administration exist? It exists generally to distract and derail Trump's presidency, and specifically for the purposes of impeachment.
Levin said as much: "Mueller's investigation, to the extent it involves Trump himself, has as its purpose to lay a predicate or a pretext, if you will, for impeachment -- and that's not that man's job!"
