  1. The remedy if true? Trump’s Presidential pardon power is null and void. You abuse it, you don’t get to use it.

    • @Roger Jones roger, I agree – I lived in the UK off and on for around 7 years, you have a much better system over all. The US system is broken in a number of places. No coincidence either that Canada seems to avoid a lot of our problems.

    • @Astrobrant2 I get what you are saying, but I wonder. There’s a a lot of discussion about possible exceptions.

      No way Racist Joe won…something is up. China collusion 🇨🇳?????????? We need to impeach. Lets riot and tear down historic statues…does that look familiar Dems😉

    • @Think about it You really do live in some kind of fantasy world.

    • @Roger Jones I agree with you, but there are cases where there have been clear miscarriages of justice, in which case I believe a governor or president should be allowed to grant clemency or overturn a conviction. I’m not sure if that’s the same thing as a pardon, though. The Randall Adams case in Texas is a fine example.

    Since there’s only one person can do the pardoning obviously that person is involved.

  3. This is your friendly reminder that accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt. Thank you for your time.

    • @Baruch Ben-David Wrong, go back and look at the pardon of Sheriff Joe out of Maricopa county Arizona. Trump pardoned him and he had no idea it was an admission of guilt. His reaction was priceless!

      I guess we are done with the Russia lie…what a joke. Trump is clean, start looking at Ku Klux Joe….

    • @Think about it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCSF3reVr10&t=102s
      VP JOE BIDEN ON CFR QUID PRO QUO M NNN
      🤣🤣🤣 Should we impeach now, or wait❓🤦‍♂️

    • @Eric H If you accept a pardon (I don’t know how you accept a future pardon because it’s in the future) you have already been convicted of a crime and are incarcerated, i.e.: guilty. Your previous actions have convicted you (again, guilty), not the subsequent pardon. You cannot accept a pardon for a crime you have not been convicted of.

    • @karen Burrows I’m aware of this, and have said the same thing. Why are you telling me this?

  4. I don’t care who or why. I just want them to be prosecuted fully

  5. Trump’s apology, “Pardon me”.

  6. Mr. Maurice Evans Jones | December 2, 2020 at 11:08 AM | Reply

    Trump administration will go down in history as the most corrupt ever.

    • @John Parr we’ll see NY is going after this crook. Barr even jumping ship. Sore Losers Dump Trump 2020 by by.

    • @Co2112 please get facts before opening big mouth. u dont no what your talking about. your 3rd grade education is showing…..

    • Maybe, as far as we are aware. Every other administration has been FAR more competent at pretty much everything, except maybe viral marketing. So there may have been even more currupt admins in the past – but competent people are much more likely to succeed in hiding or obfuscating their crimes, corruption and unethical doings.

      Hey, give Joe a shot

    • @Think about it maybe we will have an impeachment for once that both sides agree on.

  7. The man pardoning the man in the mirror. From only in the movies, now in the white house.

  8. Stupid Watergate continues, putting a pardon bribe conspiracy in an email lol. They are not even the best criminals.

  9. These people will do anything for MONEY!!!!!

    Is this why Trump is accusing DOJ in a voting coverup?

  11. Michael Ulbricht | December 2, 2020 at 11:21 AM | Reply

    Much more to be revealed as this corrupt and criminal administration’s term expires. The Republican Senate still aboard this sinking ship!

  12. It’s about time to put all the trump’s gangs on orange jump suit.

  13. “There’s the tell”…Joe so eloquently stated.

    We all knew this back when it was reported months ago. Now they just have the evidence.

  15. It will be interesting to see how many felons come out of this “administration.”

  16. He tried to steal the people’s votes it is gonna bite you back.

  17. Whenever “He who shall not be named” claims Fake News you can guarantee that it is anything but fake

      Let’s finally get him

    • Donald Tackett | December 2, 2020 at 3:33 PM | Reply

      It’s all fake news if it doesn’t fit his narrative

    • Think about it | December 2, 2020 at 3:41 PM | Reply

      I guess we are done with the Russia lie…what a joke. Trump is clean, start looking at Ku Klux Joe….

    • Well, let’s just say T**** clearly knows the gig is up, so time to chime in to rile the base.

    • @Think about it Clean? I guess that is why he is asking about pardons for himself and his children. That sure sounds like the actions of someone who is “clean”.
      The Russia investigation is still a thing and will get its day in the sun once “He who shall not be named” is out of office and his Crony Attorney Generals are no longer able to shield him. Funny how that works.

  18. “Bribery-for-Pardon Scheme,” in case you were wondering what impeachable offense Trump is committing today.

    • ​@C.A.T. Boom! Trump has never come clean on Russia. All Trump has done is deny & cover up & get others to repeat it. All roads still lead to Russia. All roads always lead to Russia. Russia. Russia. Russia. All those back channel comms with Putin and Trump still couldn’t rig 2020? Hilarious!!!!!

    • @Chris Chris Have you read the Steele Report???

    • @Think about it 83.8 million votes against Trump. President-elect Biden is over 4 points clear. Biden now over 81 million. The story of 2020 is this: Record Turnout Boots Impeached Incompetent Incumbent Trump.

      @The To And Be You got that right! See it more as a metaphore. For a serious restart of the usa, i think a thorough housecleaning is necessary! Wich means that Trump has to face legal consequences at court. No Pardon for him.

    • @Markus Christian 👍👍👍👍👍

  19. David Hernandez | December 2, 2020 at 12:10 PM | Reply

    This President is very corrupted and needs to be prosecuted for all his crimes!

    • @Michael Wuj these morons here wouldn’t know real news if it whacked them upside the head.

    • that wont happen unless someone challenged his pardons he will walk away Scott free, lets hope Cyrus Vance can nail him on tax and bank fraud which he cant get out off

    • @Michael Wuj keep dreaming, the court jester Giuliani is out of evidence you poor soles having to see your impeached clown packing his bags
