    This is a political, not legal issue. Could the ICC establish jurisdiction, probably. The dominant members of the ICC are all NATO allies. To pursue a war crimes case against the former President of the US would require an ICC member with enough political clout within the ICC, and squeaky clean hands, to be willing to fracture its diplomatic relationship with the US. Who is that? And even if there was an indictment and trial the ICC has no right to extradite any American citizen, compel them to appear, or serve any sentence.
