  1. Imagine all the criminality that will be exposed in Jan.

      @becky doesit – You’re not able to notice when the lawyers go into the court room, where they actually get into trouble for lying, they always say it’s not a fraud case? Even Barr said so far there is no evidence of this fraud. Trump’s attorneys are gaslighting the country. They’re lying. Trump’s supporters have given over $150 mil that will go into Trump’s pockets, and will not go to these lawsuits.

      But go on. Dream. Biden won. Trump is a loser.

    • @Sue Zbell To be clear it is not the Presidents place to tell the Justice Dept. what to do. Biden clearly stated the he will not interfere with their workings and that is how it should be. And he also stated that it will be up to the AG to make any decisions on charges of any individual and that is also how it should be.

    • And nothing will be done about it..that’s why they keep getting away with it. Supreme Court isn’t even trustworthy.

      @Sue Zbell Biden said he doesn’t want to be part of it. He’s leaving it to the states and the DOJ to want to pursue it. If he pardons Trump, I would make him outline everything he’s done. Therefore, when the state goes for him it will prove their case against him. If I were Biden, that’s what I would do.

      @psycobleach46 tullis Yep. Thrown out by mostly republican officials.

    Billy Barr: ParDON me?
    Diaper Don: “Not now!” *Cries*

    • Pardoning is for criminals, Trump said it himself.

    • Love it!

    • He can’t pardon himself or ask Pence to pardon him, for legal charges that have not been brought against him yet. District attorney’s are smart and will make shrewd legal moves when the time is right. Acting early might prompt the self proclaimed “very stable genius” to also act quickly to pardon himself against such allegations. Since specific charges aren’t being brought forward, there’s nothing he or Pence can pardon him for at this time. If appropriate, would be great to hear charges brought against him roughly 1 week after he leaves office and after Biden is able to do a government wide clearing of politically appointed supporters of the one who says he’s “like a smart person.” who might still remain in government positions of power, to the extent possible. AFTER government offices have been cleaned, so to speak, bring charges forward.

    • @starlight gazer B He also confuses which hole to use when speaking.

    • ohyes

    “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose ANY SLEEP”

  4. Why would an innocent man pardoned himself? If he’s innocent. 🤔

  5. Isn’t offering yourself and your friends pardons an acknowledgment that you and your friends have without doubt broken the law?

  6. If he has to give pardons to Rudolph and his kids and himself, that is PROOF that they are ALL GUILTY of SERIIOUS CRIMES!!

  7. Corruption right out there in the open.

    See Ari that’s the big difference Nixon thought a self pardon wouldn’t work and Trump doesn’t think

  9. By admitting he needs pardon trump is confessing his guilt.

      @Chris we all know that you rode the short bus to school too.

    • @Chris 😂😂😂😂😂

    • Wouldn’t that be the best outcome for the Americans?

      Trump admitting that practically every accusation is true in exchange for a blanket pardon would put a damper on his followers fantasies about the “deep state being out to get Trump”.
      Especially if the confessions were streamed and archived on a public server.

      Throw in a clause that the pardon would be invalid if he ever spoke publicly or gave an interview or tweeted ever again, and the US would be spared millions of dollars in legal fees and security.

      Bonus: Most likely Trump would break the agreement and go straight to jail as per admission of guilt 😉

    • Mueller did say Trump still can be charged with corruption an obstruction of justice after he leaves office!

    • Mechanism Malfunction | December 2, 2020 at 1:47 AM | Reply

      Biden is the one asking for the pardon

  10. Let him pardon himself, it is an admittance of guilt as well as lose his ability to use the 5th amendment to avoid self incrimination.

  11. Barr knows he’s on his way to being ” disbarred ” so to speak.

    This soap opera has been going on for 4 years straight with no commercials.

  13. The DOJ is investigating the White House for ” Pay for Pardon” and its been going on since August🤣🤣

  14. But it was all a “witch hunt.” No pardons should be necessary, right? 😂

  15. Frances Garcia | December 1, 2020 at 10:41 PM | Reply

    This is the most disgusting thing he can do is to self pardon himself. He’s a crook and he is so desperate to self pardon himself.

  16. The US should ask for pardon for having given that seat for 4 years to this clown.

  17. “Tough questions?” There are no questions, The idea of a self-pardon is laughable and absurd.

  18. Pardon yourself and pardon your family!
    It’s an open admission that they are all criminals.

  19. Barr is trying, to no avail, to provide cover for himself but it’s too late. We know who and what he is. 👎🏼

    Rudy would only need a pardon if he’s guilty of something.
