  1. Fully corrupt president and administration.

  2. Trump needs to face the full force of the law. No obstruction of justice from the Biden administration. And get Ivanka and his other spawn too.

      Joe did say in one of his rally speeches “I’m coming for you”. Biden looked genuinely upset. I Hope he keeps his word.

      @Heer Syal What is truly possible is trump selling DC insider knowledge for money to putin and china over drinks at some mar-gag-gag party.

    • @Brenda MPH CEPH Well, we must hope that he goes and has some of Mr Putin’s ‘special tea’ and gab over his political woes! Lol!

    • @Lisa Zabriskie at least Harris needs to keep her promise to prosecute the case against trump. Biden tends to be too conciliatory, so I really hope Harris holds his feet to the fire.

    • Don’t get your hopes up J D. Democrats don’t have the grit to go after Trump like that. Put the shoe on the other foot and you best believe the Republicans would go all in on Biden.

      This law that the president can pardon whoever he want is not only laughable but it allows bad / moraless president to be corrupting. This law must be changed . No country on Earth has this law, except the USA & the Banana republic .

    • @Kousouma Rendall You are a moron. Every country has some form of that. How stupid can you be? Oh wait… your a democrat, never mind we understand everything now.

      @Frank Harris in Autralia. Our president/priminister do not have “presidential pardon power” our supreme court decides who is criminal or who is not.

    • @Alyson onOahu – hope that the football is been taken away from him.

    He’s a disgrace lying to FBI that’s what he will be remembered for..he can get all the Pardons he wants it doesn’t matter

    Are we still pretending Pence didn’t know anything about campaign officials working with Russia? Really😩

    This pardon says more about Trump’s total lack of morals, as well as the egregious offence committed by Flynn.

  7. And if America is smart when Trump is out, they won’t remotely consider pardoning him. America needs to relearn by example that nobody is above the law.

  8. Patricia Perez | November 25, 2020 at 7:34 PM | Reply

    What about Covid that is ravaging the country.He is more concerned for one corrupt man.

  9. It’s this the “Law and Order” president?
    Pardoning criminals and his own crimes?
    Is this the democracy America that we once believe in? It’s a joke!

    Using the Pardon Power illegally. Just like how he uses the power of the Presidency.

  11. Steve Schmidt is the MAN. Love his direct to the point and straight-faced delivery. This guy is authentic, with some humor.

  12. This guy should go to “””””MAKE GOLFING GREAT AGAIN PERIOD'”””””’

  13. He has to live his life knowing that everyone knows he is guilty. Despicable. As for Trump, his life as he knows it is about to implode. He will get exactly what he truly deserves in this life.

    Steve is one smart Guy , never pulls his punches hits it straight on and has a superb way with a turn of phrase and the spoken word

  15. The fact that millions love this criminal is alarming

  16. “He was treated unfairly” even though he pleaded guilty twice.

  17. How can he pardon himself? He hasn’t been charged with anything YET.

  18. ‘He’s led a strong life’ what does that even mean?! It doesn’t make sense

  19. “Treated very unfairly by the media”. He wasn’t tried by the media.

  20. The way the pardon power is written he cannot legally pardon himself, only “others”.
