No prosecutor can investigate the President because that would circumvent the Constitutional provision for Impeachment by Congress
This is where I have a problem with the current POTUS line of argument: if a NY DA cannot get the tax returns of a sitting POTUS, why wouldn’t it also apply to any political position? I can slightly see the argument about not investigating the POTUS, while specifically in the role of the POTUS, but not being able to summon tax records? That’s a serious stretch, given most of his time was as a private citizen.
Trumps lawyers are basically making a case for any elected politician being immune to any investigation, because they are currently in office.
Congress cannot investigate the President because the entire executive branch has absolute immunity from Congressional subpoenas.
There is no legal basis of absolute immunity, in the US — this argument is the most hilarious of them all. It’s a great set of words, well written by a lawyer, but it won’t hold up in court … which is why it will never make it TO court.
