      Pelosi is a fool and a dancing idiot. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday declined to rule out the possibility that President Donald Trump could be indicted while in office, saying there is "an open discussion" on whether such an indictment would be legal even though Justice Department guidance states it would not be.

    In an interview on NBC’s “Today" show, Pelosi (D-Calif.) acknowledged the long-standing precedent but noted that "it's not the law.” “Everything indicates that a president can be indicted after he is no longer president of the United States,” she told "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie, who asked whether she thought special counsel Robert Mueller could “legally” return an indictment on the president as a result of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.  I think that is an open discussion. I think that is an open discussion in terms of the law,” Pelosi said.

     But she urged a hands-off approach while Mueller wraps up his probe, which includes examining whether Trump or members of his campaign coordinated with Russia in the scheme and whether Trump sought to obstruct justice in the investigation. Let's just see what Mueller does,” she said. “Let's spend our time on getting the results for the American people.”
