Former presidents were formerly immune.

The moment they stop being president is the moment they stop being immune.

Immunity is for the OFFICE, not the person.

It was my understanding that presidents are personally immune from their actions as president. For ex, If they president during the day and murder people in the basement of the Whote House, they are immune from day activites but can be prosecuted for murdering people in their free time. No?

No immunity for lawbreakers. Especially a President.

I’m not aware of any statute, court decision or constitutional provision that explicitly says a sitting president cannot be prosecuted. This view of the law comes from a 1973 DOJ Office of Legal Counsel memo that concluded this should be the law or is the DOJ’s policy.

Imho this is still an undecided legal question.
