...With judges, when it comes to civil liability, there seems to be a distinction between acts committed in the course of their duties as a judge (for which they are immune from lawsuit), and other acts. But this doesn't apply to criminal prosecution.

Some judges have argued that the President is indeed specially immune, but it's still a matter of some controversy.

Of course, anything clearly awful enough to make talk of immunity seem absurd would also have to require Impeachment. If it turns out the president has been strangling prostitutes and burying them in the foundations of his buildings to appease the Gods, even the majority of Republicans would have to vote to Impeach.
