US Presidents - criminal and civil charges

Columbus, OH |

Dear Sir or Madame,
Is is possible to file criminal and civil charges against a US president after he leaves office because he is obstructing justice against you while he is in office? If so, what is the statute of limitations, please?

Also, how do you file criminal charges against him for international crimes against you that are being committed in the European Union?

Thank you for yout time and attention to this matter.

I would find such a case utterly unlikely it terms of its judicial viability (and would further likely recommend that
the person making such claims seek counseling).

You can submit a communiation to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague though the US is not a party to the Rome Statute, nonetheless if the alleged acts were carried out in a country that is an ICC member, theoretically th ICC would have jurisdiction to investigate.
