Trump revived attacks on sanctuary cities to distract from Mueller report release: report President Trump reportedly publicly revived an earlier proposal to release migrants in sanctuary cities in part to distract from lingering questions about special counsel Robert Mueller's report, according to the New York Times. Shortly after news broke that the administration had rejected the idea, Trump sent a series of tweets claiming it was still being considered.

Bharara, who was fired by Trump in 2017, said Sunday on "State of the Union" that he doesn't think "it could be more clear" that Trump could be charged with crimes after he leaves office.

"[Mueller] says in great particularity that, although you cannot prosecute a sitting president under the OLC [Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel] interpretation, we are nonetheless preserving evidence, while memories are fresh and documents are available, because a president, once he leaves office, can be charged with crimes committed while in office. I don't think it could be more clear," he said, paraphrasing Mueller's report.

"Whether or not a prosecutor will seek to do it and whether or not there will be viable defenses, I don't know. But the position of the Mueller team, to me, is clearly the case they think there's future legal jeopardy," Bharara added.
