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

    1. @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.

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

    3. 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

    4. @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.

    1. Exactly. The president is the only person with pardon power, so it’s pretty obvious he’s involved in soliciting bribes for pardons.

    2. Hmmm, I’ll most likely NEVER be able to afford a pardon slip but I wonder how much it costs…so interesting to know!

    1. @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!

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

    3. @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.

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

    1. 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

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

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

    3. 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.

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

    1. What the Biden-Harris COVID-19 Task Force Is Missing
      Ranna Parekh, MD, and Kali Cyrus, MD, MPH
      November 25, 2020
      Not among them was a mental health professional. Not having a single behavioral health provider on the Task Force will prove to be a mistake that could affect millions of Americans.

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

    1. @Dorah Chizu Something else? TRAITORS following TRAITOR Trump, IMO. Today, 271,000 Americans have died from coronavirus that TRAITOR Trump said would be gone by November 3, 2020, and a majority of Senate RepubliKKKans Do Not Consider Another Stimulus package is NEEDED for Americans.

    2. It’s up to us and law makers to make sure they never forget
      God knows we won’t forget
      They have to pay
      Find away to remove them that have broken laws and played part in all the criminal activity

    1. @pfenix7 trump is the crybaby loser, you , trump and the rest of the idiots that follow him can’t get over the FACT that trump lost

    2. @pfenix7 So you were crying! Poor little thing…… As for me, NAh, and no one should care, I’m a man.

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

    2. @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.

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

    1. ​@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!!!!!

    2. @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.

    3. @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.

    1. 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

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

    3. 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

    1. Great news, Racist Joe certified you black. Shame you buy into these lies about Trump. Joe is a real racist if you look into his past. Try it
