Pardon Me, Your Bottomless Mug of Stupid is Served

Lord Damp Nut retweeted this tweet urging him to pardon himself:

From our pals at Electoral-Vote:

One known unknown is what happens when and if Trump pardons himself. It is very likely he will do it, since there is enormous upside and limited downside. But, of course, “limited downside” is not “zero downside.” The potential issue Trump could run into is that if he accepts a pardon (from himself, or from Mike Pence), that is legally regarded as an admission of guilt. If the pardon is found to be legally invalid (much more likely if it’s a self-pardon), then the President could be dealing himself the double whammy of not actually pardoning himself, and at the same time having admitted guilt. Further, even if the federal pardon stands, it could weaken his position in the state-level cases, depending on what he’s charged with.

This was part of a large piece about whether LDN could be prosecuted. Read the whole thing, there’s an interesting argument.

    Also, too, if AssMouth pardon’s himself, won’t he lose Fifth Amendment protections?

    I have questions. What is he pardoning himself for exactly? If there is such a thing as a ‘blanket’ pardon does it pardon all past, present and future crimes and misdemeanors or is there an expiration date? This shit just ain’t normal.

      TomJChicago on Twitter says a pardon doesn’t apply to future crimes. And since the Covidiot commits crimes as often as he breathes, it won’t matter.

  5. Ain’t it funny the “Lock Her Up” crowd describes “holding criminals accountable for their actions in a court of law” to be ‘bloodlust’.
