If Trump pardons himself, he could be impeached: expert

84 ratings | 3463 views
President Trump argued Monday that he has the power to pardon himself if necessary, and claimed the hiring of special counsel Robert Mueller was an unconstitutional move. “As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?” Trump tweeted. But one legal expert questioned whether there was actually a consensus that a commander-in-chief can pardon himself.

The Bible tells us to pray for our leaders. We should do this even if we don't agree with the leaders.

Just let him pardon himself. It will show the last of the Trump supporters how selfish and arrogant he is.

This is all pointless because regardless whether there's 100% proof or not Republicans will/would NEVER impeach a president from their party.

D J Koenig if the dems win the house thats not an issue. They only need a simple majority. In the Senate i think people are slightly less party driven and more mature really so if the democrats get a good amount of seats there they might be able to flip enough repubs to get to 67 depending on the evidence and Muellers findings. It will be interesting to see. Thats if the dems grow some cajones anyway.

For this argument it doesn’t particularly matter if he’s committed a crime or not, the fact is he truly believes he can pardon himself. If a president can pardon himself than this is no longer a democracy, but a dictatorship. Regardless of his power he should have to abide by the same laws as everyone else. Im astounded that the right does not understand this concept. Or maybe they do and they are still desperately clinging to the hope that they didnt elect a facist, racist, homophobic, power hungry child into office.

Why would Trump have to pardon himself? What crime has he committed that hasn't been invented by his enemies? His statement was hypothetical.
Ron Fill more (26 days ago)
It isn't an investigation! It is a kangaroo court seeking to develop a narrative that is false. To develop in the minds of stupid people there is evidence of a non existent crime. In the first place, collusion isn't a crime! Let me ask you this: Since you libs are blessed with superior intellect, I am sure you can explain why the Russians would want to assist in the election of a US President who advocates rebuilding the US Military and putting the interests of America first over a corrupt political hack who actually DID collude with the Russians in the sale of US uranium reserves to that country in exchange for $145 million in kickbacks to her. That is the REAL crime! A corrupt political hack the Russians already knew they could buy! Did the Russians interfere in our elections? Of course! But not to assist one candidate over the other. There can be no doubt the Russians, like everyone else, expected Hillary to win. All they were interested in doing is sowing discord and distrust in our electoral system. In that they succeeded!

Easily The Best President in Modern History. America is stronger than ever. This whole investigation has been just a show who's in trouble? 35,000 Sealed Indictments and counting.... 500 days in and has done more for the American People than the last several administrations combined. President Trumps Greatest Accomplishment in my opinion: Triggered every single Anti-American Liberal causing them to act like flaming obnoxious fear mongering hateful violent fascist from which they will never recover. God Bless President Donald J Trump!!!

Since the CIA, FBI and DOJ have the authority to spy on the current administrations political opponent and use falsified evidence to launch investigations to unseat our duly elected president then YES HE HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PARDON HIMSELF.

Can you pardon someone who's done nothing wrong. Is that an impeachable offense? *Hmmmmmm face.*
James Madison (1 month ago)
Why is trump saying this. ONLY A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF A CRIME(S) can be pardoned. Someone needs to tell Trump to stop telling the jury pool that he is guilty of all the crimes he is being accused of commiting.

Pardon himself before or after impeachment ?
bltcrunchy (1 month ago)
Trump is trying to prove that he is above the law. Imaging what would happen if a president can pardon himself. He could grab anyone's genitals, rape them, or chop off anyone's head and just pardon himself. That would be an abuse of power.
Yuri Tarded (1 month ago)
As ridiculous as this may sound, he has already mentioned that he could shoot someone on 5th avenue in New York and get away with it. This is an absolute reality, and its fucking terrifying. What's even scarier is the fact that despite every overtly evil, criminal, or downright unconscionable act he has engaged in since the first day of his presidency, he still has a loyal following that refuses to accept the reality of what he has done (and continues to do) as president. We are living in a scary time.

Only ones above the law are the Clintons and Obama. But I bet that doesn't bother you one bit!

Trump thinks he's slick and can get one over on the American people because, that's how he's made his millions by his shady business practices. He's the type of person that lives his life not by doing what is right but, by the loopholes. He will twist anything to make himself out to be the winner or the victim. It's really scary that he's our President and has so much power. God help us.
MrBert1630 (1 month ago)
Only thing wrong with your puke comment is that TRUMP is actually doing good things for the forgotten people ,vets ,police and armed forces. Throw in the bikers and you have more than half the country backing Trump. And his businesses employ thousands of people. WHAT actually do you do KODI BROTO..

I personally hate Trump with a passion. Give my comment a thumbs up if you feel the same.
Yuri Tarded (1 month ago)
haha look at who you elected president buddy, he's a huge elitist! And no, not only city people agree, most moderately intelligent people do. As a person with a Masters degree in computational logic, I can confidently say that I (and most others) are NOT basing our thoughts of Mr Trump on just feelings. Every decision he has made has been counterintuitive, and poorly thought out. He isn't even remotely logical when it comes to making decisions. If he were, i can assure you that 90% of the idiotic actions and executive orders he has proposed would have never happened. For example, how he was butthurt that Trudeau didn't roll over when Trump tried to be domineering during their recent interaction. Give your head a shake buddy. You're not fooling anyone, you know that you're full of shit. Maybe if you stop listening to the bullshit peddled by Fox News, you'll understand the world as it is, not as how Trump tells you it is.
Battleballs (1 month ago)
You mean city people would agree with you. Because you people are like cattle. No minds of your own. Put in a safe political environment away from any opposing views like an echo chamber. It's one big safe space for the intellectually deranged who only think with feelings and not logical reasoning. You only represent 50 of the over 3,000 counties in this country and this is why no one likes you when you talk down to people like elitist scum.
Yuri Tarded (1 month ago)
Every moderately intelligent person would agree with you. Trump is evil, and his presidency needs to end for the sake of humanity.

H Potter honkies is a term created back in the days when white men wanted black prostitutes they would honk their horns in their vehicles. Cracker is a term used when a white man of authority imposed his will or beliefs by using a whip and the sound was crackling like. Hence cracker. Racism is when a group jas economic power over others and they make injust laws to keep others down. Lets not for we live in Amerikkka and we know its history. Racism is America it thrives on it while people like u act as if it doesn't exist. Let police start killing white children and getting away with it then yall care with your bias asses. Facts

Pardon from what? Conviction of Impeachment? Can't pardon yourself if you ain't president. This is just stupid.

If Herr Trump believes he can pardon himself, I imagine that Trump will set no limitations on what he can pardon himself for, and thus America would traverse the road of the limitless powers of an emperor... Nice knowing ya, America!
Yuri Tarded (1 month ago)
He has already admitted publicly that he admires the idea of serving as president forever, and he has even gone so far as to suggest that America should implement the notion of indefinite presidential terms. Now that is fucking scary. With a Republican house (that is ready to appease any request or bill he puts forth), the idea of him serving as president forever should scare every world inhabitant. Also, his open admiration of Putin and Kim Jong Un definitely makes the situation seem pretty bleak.
MrBert1630 (1 month ago)
Trump could be sitting in his pent house home or any one of his grand hotels.Instead he is saving the USA from the Democrats,the top level of the FBI and DOJ while doing good things for the forgotten Americans and veterans ( And he is not taking a salary).All these puke faced Hillory lovers have been cut off food stamps and made to work. They love illegals more than Americans.They would rather destroy their country and all its history because they are fools,democrats and illegals.I think this is going to lead to another civil war,if we don,t start shutting down the ANTI GOVERNMENT News stations.Leave FOX as the lone NEWS SOURCE with a few honest News reporters from the other stations.

Avery Thompson The constitution clearly states a president can be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors. If Trump could pardon himself, then this part of the constitution would be destroyed. Thus, Trump would hardly be law abiding...
