Key text of Ford's pardon of Nixon

If Trump resign and Pence follows Ford’s lead, Trump will get off scott free for fomenting a seditious rebellion against the U.S.


Now, THEREFORE, I, GERALD R. FORD, President of the United States, pursuant to the pardon power conferred upon me by Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, have granted and by these presents do grant a full, free, and absolute pardon unto Richard Nixon for all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon, has committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from January 20, 1969 through August 9, 1974.

1. Had a disagreement about Ford with a DUer a while back.

They were saying what swell guy Ford was, and I was saying he set the precedent for presidents being above the law.

3. His political career is over already. He is a joke.

But his legacy is on the line; how he will appear in the history books.

6. Unfortunate about impeachment

Because better than 50% chance Pence will pardon. IMO
