Levin on Trump 'Indictment' Talk: 'Perhaps Mr. Mueller Is the Tyrant'
Constitutional law expert and "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin said President Donald Trump cannot be indicted and that special counsel Robert Mueller may be the one trying to exceed his powers.
Levin said a 1973 Department of Justice rule outlines that the president cannot be indicted. He added that since Mueller is an "inferior employee [of] the Department of Justice, he must comply with the policies" of the DOJ.
"He can't defy the [DOJ] and bring an indictment," Levin said. "You can't cripple the president of the United States... and expect him to have his due process constitutional rights defended at the same time."
"Perhaps Mr. Mueller is the one who is the tyrant, not the president of the United States," he said.
Levin said the Constitution reserves presidential pardon power in any case except impeachment.
"It's not the president who's the thug, it's Mr. Mueller who's the thug," Levin said.
He said the only way to remove Trump from office is via a Senate vote, which he remarked was "the old fashioned way."
Levin said Trump does not want the Constitution violated, but that it appears the media are hoping that it is.
