The swamp believes Robert Mueller is closing in on Donald Trump.

But there is much debate as to whether he can charge a sitting President with a crime.

However one Attorney General revealed he believes Mueller can charge Trump with this crime.

Eric Holder corrupted the Department of Justice for nearly seven years under Barack Obama.

He was held in contempt of Congress for trying to cover up the Fast and Furious scandal, and his race baiting inflamed tensions across America.

Now he claims Mueller can charge the President with obstruction of justice, despite two DOJ memos – written in 1973 and 2000 by both Republican and Democrat administrations – that say a sitting President cannot face criminal charges.

Politico reports:

“Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday he believed Robert Mueller legally could prosecute President Donald Trump on obstruction of justice charges — but that the special counsel would need to build a strong case.

“Is there a technical case there now?” Holder said in response to questions from POLITICO after a Christian Science Monitor breakfast Wednesday. “I think so. Now.”

Mueller, as part of his wide-ranging probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and whether any Trump associates were involved, has showed signs that he is investigating whether the president obstructed justice. Some legal experts have cited as evidence Trump’s 2017 firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was then heading the Russia probe, and subsequent reports that Trump once asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and two other top U.S. intelligence officials to intervene with Comey’s investigation.

Holder, who ran the Justice Department under President Barack Obama and was deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton, initially seemed hesitant to weigh in on whether Mueller could bring an obstruction case. Some Trump allies and legal experts say the law prevents the president from being charged with such a crime. Others believe he cannot be indicted at all…

“If you’re a prosecutor, you make sure that you are building the best case. Not a technical case, but the best case, you know, that you can,” cautioned Holder, a former federal prosecutor who led an effort to put one sitting congressman in prison. “You know, the Comey firing. The outreaches to Coats and the other intel guys.”

“There are a variety of things that I can think of, technically” that could be used against the president in an obstruction case, Holder said, before adding of Mueller’s team: “Now, who knows what else they’ve got.”

Holder knows better.

But he has made noises about running for President in 2020.

Holder could be trying to burnish his “resistance” credentials by saying Mueller could prosecute Trump.
