    It's not legal .A President must go through due process and is not allowed to just pardon himself ….before he left office ๐Ÿค” Sounds like he knew ahead he was planning schemes ….pardoning himself for future crimes?????

    Pardoning isn't for something you've done, but something you were charged with. You can (and happens from tine to time) be found guilty, when you were innocent.

    Of course he can pardon himself. Because our system is based on the principle that the president is above the law. Right?

    Trump was never guilty to begin with to have to Pardon himself. And the general public needs to know and understand that he is not a trash receptacle for their self-loathing.

    This was known, before the 2020 election took place. He asked if he could pardon himself, and sane people asked "if you didn't do anything wrong, why would you need a pardon" and then lawyers said "no, idiot, you cannot pardon yourself, otherwise Nixon would have done so".

    The issue is that more and more western democracies begin to look like banana republics with presidents and heads of government being prosecuted as soon as they leave the office. This just paves the road to more dictatorships with heads of states fearing to leave their functions. There should be audits, checks and balances of the terms and if โ€œindependentโ€ (as much as itโ€™s possible) authorities donโ€™t find anything criminal, the pardon should be automatic at the end of the political mandate. As long as there were no crimes against humanity, prosecuting exiting politicians is just a disgrace for the democracy.

    Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves right now. They tried. They had respect that mankind would better the world for the sake of humanity. Talk about tree hugging liberals. They put too much faith in menโ€™s evolutionary instincts. They thought men would overcome the need for power and realize that all men are created equal. Nice try. All men want is power. And then all they want is more power.
    Over what ? For what? Oh,,.. thatโ€™s right, money. Money. Power power power.
    But yet we still have these backwoods trailer park trash flying trump flags on their trucks. All the while collecting government money.

    To everyone saying a president can't pardon themselves, the entire reason the DNC staged these indictments on a state level is to avoid Trump pardoning himself. Their own actions admit that they know he could in fact pardon himself.

    The thing is is when your potus, you can declassify ANY document, ANY time, ANYwhere, period. So he did nothing wrong! Now Biden has documents from when he was VP. Thatโ€™s is NOT legal. What we are seeing is the same thing you see in 3rd world shit jokes like the Ukraine. The dictator jails or kills his opponents and will never lose power. Is a disgusting disgrace and Biden will get what he deserves. Canโ€™t wait to see them bury him. These has never been a more corrupt pack of slimy parasites in power. The Dems are trash! Human waste!

    Well, when he was in office he was no doubt talking about illegal things he did then, not the illegal stuff he planned to do later. Kind of hard to keep track of all of it though.

    lol
    More lies
    He knows absolutely nothing about the law of the land or the powers of the president.
    What he believes is true or wants to be true is North Korea level.
    If you seriously want to live in a North Korea style country.
    GO MOVE THERE. BYE.
    LEAVE.

    If he doesnโ€™t got to prison. I give up on America. Iโ€™ll never fly the flag again in my yard. Iโ€™ll never be proud of my time in the military and never mention it and give up voting. Iโ€™ve had it, I wonโ€™t be a part of this cowardice.

    Trump's so full of himself. Like the United States Constitution, which he knows nothing about and the laws of the land for which he thinks he's above. Trump shall be the first modern president that goes from President to Prisoner No. 450078…
