Pardon Me?

“Pardon me?”

Well, this is interesting:

In the final days of his presidency, Donald Trump seriously considered issuing a blanket pardon for all participants in the Jan. 6 riot, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter.

Undoubtedly one of the pardons would be to himself? But I’m only guessing.

Between Jan. 6 and Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20, Trump made three calls to one adviser to discuss the idea. “Do you think I should pardon them? Do you think it’s a good idea? Do you think I have the power to do it?” Trump told the person, who summarized their conversations…

“…Is it everybody that had a Trump sign or everybody who walked into the Capitol” who could be pardoned? Trump asked, according to that adviser. “He said, ‘Some people think I should pardon them.’ He thought if he could do it, these people would never have to testify or be deposed.”

What a dope. As pardoning means that the pardoned have pled guilty, they can be compelled to testify, they have no 5th Amendment rights at that point. And bet me that is why he didn’t do it.

    Is it even possible to issue a proactive pardon before charges are even filed?

    In his Adderall addled brain, he may have thought that a blanket pardon of everyone involved in the insurrection would include himself.
