Since conservatives claim a sitting president "cannot be indicted," does that mean they first have to be impeached, then removed, and THEN?
...indicted for their crimes once they are regular civilians again? Presidents can be impeached and removed for things that are not necessarily street crimes, what happens then?
Sorry you guys can't do this in Russia, we know. Maybe vote smarter next time, that is if Putin doesn't have your favorite candidate murdered or blocked from running due to some flimsy accusation.

You have to convince senators in the president's own party, or elect a majority of the other party, or wait until he leaves office. An ex-president can be prosecuted for any reason, not necessarily the reason he was impeached.

Only for federal crimes, they my be able to be charged with state crimes. This is a matter tht is based on DOJ memo and is not a law.
Based on the memo impeachment would have to be first and then he could be charged with federal crimes.
This has not been tested in court.

Trump supporters attribute god like characteristics to him .
They really believe that presidential power gives Trump the right to use power in any way he wants -- they are no different from Putin's supporters ,or extremist Muslims and their leaders.

Do you honestly believe that ANY former president would be indicted for partisan reasons? Do you notice you don't hear anything more about the SDNY "investigations" after Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial. NO former president will ever get indicted. Short of murder that is. The next president will pardon him. It's just not done. After all the crimes Obama committed. You should count your lucky stars that that is the unwritten rule.
