Ken Starr: Presidents should be indictable

The Hill - Ken Starr, the former independent counsel who investigated President Clinton, said sitting presidents should be indictable during an interview on CNN Friday with former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart.

“Do you think a sitting president can be indicted?” CNN "New Day" co-anchor John Berman asked Starr. “Yes, and I disagree with the Justice Department’s guidelines but it is the historic position of the department," responded Starr. 

"I think that, plus first principles, no person is above the law, means that a president can be indicted," Starr said.
