Here’s the deal. You are running the most powerful nation on the planet. You have a squadron of lawyers. Get it?

If I get a court subpoena, can I send my lawyer? Is this a special prerogative the POTUS has?

Clinton v. Jones, 520 U.S. 681 (1997), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case establishing that a sitting President of the United States has no immunity from civil law litigation against him, for acts done before taking office and unrelated to the office.

Ah, like a king running a kingdom.
