The Constitution doesn't say anything about the President being immune from normal prosecution. It says that Congress has the power to impeach and try federal officers, including the President--but nobody thinks that means Cabinet members, judges and such are immune from regular prosecution, so it's not clear that that's the case for the President either.

My impression is that there is little or no judicial precedent here. Though it was established during the Monica Lewinsky scandal that the President could be compelled to testify in a civil case.
