5. Within the Constitution itself, there are limits to the 'absolute' pardon power,

the limit being the impeachment clause.

6. The Impeachment Clause being that someone that has been impeached,

and convicted cannot be pardoned, but Pissolini can still pardon even though he's been impeached.

9. My main point, was the pardon power itself, is not necessarily 'absolute'.

SCOTUS does not necessarily have to be bound by a pardon no matter how criminal the circumstances surrounding a particular pardon are.

10. This reminds me of the corrupt popes and church officials...

Who sold indulgences and phony relics.

Remember Chaucerís The Pardonerís 5ale?

Dear lords," said he, "in churches, when I preach,
I am at pains that all shall hear my speech,
And ring it out as roundly as a bell,
For I know all by heart the thing I tell.
My theme is always one, and ever was:
'Radix malorum est cupiditas.'
