A Proposal [View all]

If we do take the government trifecta this year I propose a constitutional amendment in response to the blatant abuse of the power by Trump:

The power to issue pardons and commutations will be vested in a commission of six lawyers, chaired by the Chief Justice.

Three lawyers are chosen by the president's party and 3 are chosen by the opposition.

Not perfect but it might put the brakes on future pardon mills.
