Two top Democrats want the Department of Justice to change the law so that President Donald Trump can be indicted.
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-MD, said the DOJ should “definitely” reconsider laws against indicting sitting presidents.
“I think we should always reconsider laws and regulations, and this is one we definitely should reconsider,” Cummings told host Jake Tapper.
“This is one we definitely should reconsider,” Rep. Elijah Cummings says, agreeing with Rep. Adam Schiff that the Justice Department should reconsider guidelines that exist that say that a sitting president cannot be indicted. #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/qzTiBPFANU

When asked if Democrats will work toward impeaching Trump once they take control of the House of Representatives in January, Cummings said he’ll likely wait for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to release his findings.
“Our major thing right now is to let Mr. Mueller, who I have a tremendous amount of respect for, do his job. Let him complete his job. Then we take a look at what he says and go from there. I think it’s actually premature right now to do that. But the evidence is certainly powerful enough. I think the president knows that.”
