Any pardon that is issued regarding possible collaboration within the Trump campaign and a Russia

Should be considered invalid and void and charges of treason should be persued by any democratic president in the future.

I'm preemptively posting this because I have a feeling we will see the pardon of Nixon version 2. Republicans are scumbags who will never punish their own.

We have to make it clear that nobody, not even a president is above the law.

None of those involved should be spared. Not even their families.

8. I think a president can pardon anyone they want

 

No way to stop it until a constitutional amendment.

2. he'll pardon himself and everybody close to him

pretty sure there's no recourse for a pardon

same as for a stolen election

3. Can't happen. A Presidential pardon is absolute.

4. You don't have to like it. But a pardon from Pence is pretty much guaranteed at this point.

The GOP is in charge right now and if they are forced to impeach...they will want to sweep this under the rug, shake the etch a sketch, etc. as fast as possible.

5. Bullshit

 

There's no way the government will protect those that aid foreign rival governments. If pence does that he should be considered complicit.

7. Really...I mean REALLY wish I could agree with you.

But the cynic in me tells me 45 is going to walk free. But there will probably be a sacrificial lamb or two just like during Bush's term.

Pence can say Trump was manipulated, mentally ill...or take any rumor that's been mentioned here and other actors were at fault...and boom. It's over. "Plausible Deniability" is already out there.

Personally, my tin foil hat tells me Pence's team is behind the leaks and worked with Comey to get Trump elected, to take him out later. Just didn't think it would happen this soon.

10. Pence SO will not need a "Pardon"

he is very clearly being partitioned off to get the Reagen treatment - affable halfwit who, poor guy, just did not know what was going on.
