Rudolph Giuliani claims that he has it on good authority that Mueller will not indict President Trump; and the Washington Post says that there is good reason to believe him, because the Justice Department guidelines say that he can’t. This question has been examined by Professor Frank Bowman on this blog; and he pointed out that the question, as far as Mueller goes, is not whether an indictment will occur, but whether Mueller will recommend that Trump be indicted. Bowman proposed that this recommendation may come in two forms; that Trump be indicted after his presidency, or that he be indicted immediately. The latter recommendation, even if doomed to fail, will potentially have the same effect as the former recommendation: Mueller’s report will reach Congress and lead to impeachment.
