10. No.

 

No one - not even DOJ - is claiming a criminal president can act with impunity. DOJ will not make that decision - a judge will decide whether the act applies to Trump in this case

I understand why some people don't understand it because it's a complicated area of the law and even lawyers disagree about it. But in this instance, I'm going with Attorney General Merrick Garland, a brilliant, thoughtful and ethical jurist and attorney, over Joyce Vance, who is not in his position, doesn't have the information the AG has, didn't participate in the discussions and decisionmaking that led to this option, and isn't responsible for future cases that could be impacted by how this case is handled.
