“On Prosecuting Presidents,” 27 Hofstra L. Rev. 671 (1999)

Abstract

In 1996, my student Brian Kalt and I co-authored an article explaining that a sitting President is constitutionally immune from ordinary criminal prosecution-state or federal-but is of course subject to ordinary prosecution the instant he leaves office, a prospect that can obviously be hastened by impeachment. In this Essay, I shall summarize my reasons for continuing to believe this.
