Merrick Garland just affirmed that Trump can be prosecuted: "No person is above the law in this country. There is nothing in the principles of prosecution... which prevent us from investigating anyone who is criminally responsible for an attempt to undo a democratic election."


There is a very simple reason why this will never happen: if one ex-president can be prosecuted, then all of them can be.

Remember that Obama assassinated a US citizen. The list of crimes of past presidents is long (even excluding war crimes against non-persons abroad).
