Thatís the funny thing. He thinks the opposition should have some type of veto power over pardons. His 7th grade civics teacher really failed him.

Should our policy be based on what a few do or the many?
I said many are. You think a 1700% increase is normal?

Do you think itís fine for trump to conspire with CBP officers to break the law under the promise of a pardon for those officers?
No, that's what I said. I'd like to know precisely what law you think Trump is breaking. You know, before impeachment proceedings.

POTUS can pardon pretty much anyone he wants, for any reason he wants:

In the United States, the pardon power for offences against the United States is granted to the President of the United States under Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution which states that the President "shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment."


Do you think that Ford should have been impeached over his Nixon pardon?

What the hell does this have to do with the president asking federal agents to break the law with the promise of a pardon?

Impeach proceedings dont require a law to be broken. You see no abuse with the president asking federal agents to break the law under promise of a pardon?

So would you be OK if trump ordered the execution of Speaker Pelosi then pardoned the killer? (and pardoned himself)

Yes, I know. I think Trump is taking an extreme measure (if he did) in the face of Democrat intransigence and failure to tackle this issue.

One might be wise to recall that bargaining is a stage of grief. Perhaps a generous person might applaud the progress.

So you are ok with the president conspiring to commit some federal crimes but not all?

I mean, I realize some crimes are more severe than others.

As much as I hate whataboutisms, do you have the same reaction when those on the left actively conspire to give aid and comfort to illegal aliens?
