“Unindicted Co-conspirator”

For those of you who are too young to remember, the term “unindicted co-conspirator” was used by the Special Prosecutor to describe President Richard Nixon’s position in the cover-up of the Watergate scandal in 1973. The president wasn’t indicted based on the belief by the lawyers that a sitting president couldn’t be indicted. I would assume the same legal finding applies today to a Vice President.
