As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!
Now this IS an issue….
No ONE REALLY thinks trying such a thing would keep Trump in office ….
We all think that his chances of being impeached are slim to none….
But following in the steps of Richard Nixon and firing his Attorney General and others to stop Robert Mueller would be working his way towards changing the ball game….
Pardoning HIMSELF even before the midterms would make sure that an impeachment effort’s odds would vastly improve….
Even his mouthpiece lawyer Rudy Giuliani doesn’t think his view that he can get himself off the hook is a good idea….
Donald J. Trump is a man who has the view that he can do ANYTHING he wants….
That the rules and law applies to everyone else except HIM….
As much as he twists and turns?
Becoming President has made his escape form scrutiny impossible….
We’ll see if America will handle him as man NOT above the law….
Because of Politics?
Rudy Giulain and Chris Christie….
…while arguing that the president has the theoretical ability to pardon himself, Giuliani and other Trump allies on Sunday nonetheless rejected the reality of such a brash move — in part because of the political backlash they said could lead to Trump’s impeachment.
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” for instance, Giuliani framed the pardon question as purely hypothetical and politically implausible. “It’s not going to happen. It’s a hypothetical point,” he told host Chuck Todd.
He went on to describe such a move as “unthinkable,” and said it would probably lead immediately to impeachment.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is in regular touch with the president, was even more blunt than Giuliani, appearing on the ABC news program shortly after Trump’s attorney.
“Listen, there’s no way that’ll happen, and the reason it won’t is because then it becomes a political problem,” Christie said when asked about the notion that Trump might pardon himself. “If the president were to pardon himself, he’ll get impeached.”
