        existing policy prohibiting indictment of sitting Presidents, we are not recommending indictment of Pres Trump at this time." I also think the report might explain that the reason there are no other indictments recommended is because those investigations have been farmed out to other offices, and/or are the subject of ongoing counterintel investigations. In other words, the rest of the Trump family might still get indicted for other crimes. I think that's quite likely, espe Don Jr and Jared Kushner.
