3. He can, but everybody would be compelled to testify because no need for 5th Amend protection.


And they would be at risk for perjury since such testimony would be after the pardon.

6. I thought Robertson would be against Indulgences, especially on the Eve of the 500th Anniversary ...

of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the Church door.

7. Yeah, like this twisted old fook knows anything about anything.

I find it hard to believe that anyone even takes this shriveled old fart seriously about anything but a practiced referral is what brand of diaper to wear.

Satan talks in strange ways.

12. Yes he can -- and Congress can impeach him for it!

The Virginia ratification convention in 1788 spent quite a bit of time on the provision about the President's ability to pardon crimes, and the delegates assured each other that the President would be impeached if he started pardoning his own cronies for stuff in which he was complicit.

Additionally, once Manafort or any of those other guys get a pardon - especially a broadly worded pardon that covers all offenses - they cannot thereafter use the Fifth Amendment to refuse to testify, and can be forced to testify against the very President that issued that pardon ... so Trump is unlikely to pardon them before he leaves the White House for the last time, if at all.

In the meantime, Trump will dangle the possibility of pardon or other presidential clemency (such as commutation, which W gave Scooter Libby, sparing him time in lock-down but leaving him with a criminal record and a whopping fine to pay) in front of all his people -- but (as Reagan promised Ollie North) only if they first go all the way through the entire judicial process, meaning trial, conviction and sentencing. If, by a miracle, they aren't convicted, no need for a pardon. But going through the grinder means they keep silent, they don't cut a deal with the prosecutor to snitch on Trump and their conviction and sentence will prove their Mafia-like loyalty. And then, maybe, Trump will remember to pardon them on his way out. Or maybe, like Nixon and Reagan, he'll leave them dangling in the wind.

13. He is just another moronic idiot, who does not understand seperation of church and state.

Go back to preaching your hypocritical dogma to the fools who you fleece for money.

If there is a hell, it is knowing that you, and others like you are in my world.

What what Jesus do?

He would kick your ugly ass straight to hell!
