Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that a sitting president of the United States can not be indicted, during an event at the Newseum on Tuesday.

Bloomberg’s Chris Strohm asked Rosenstein whether a sitting president can be indicted.

“I’m not gonna answer this in the context of any current matters, so you shouldn’t draw any inference,” Rosenstein said. “The Department of Justice has in the past, when the issue arose, has opined that a sitting president cannot be indicted.”
