An Idea to Ponder?

Jun 11, 2018

President Trump made headlines by saying he could possibly “pardon himself,” which suggested it might be necessary.

But right now Special Prosecutor Mueller has not proposed a single charge against Mr. Trump.

Perhaps Trump could pardon himself for cheating on his wife.

Perhaps Trump could pardon himself for referring to half of humanity, that is, women, as instruments for his personal sexual gratification.

Perhaps Trump could pardon his earlier self, when the apartments his family owned in New York refused to rent to black people.

Perhaps Trump could pardon his use of the bankruptcy courts six times, a move that meant he didn’t have to pay back the enormous amount of money he borrowed and in addition, he could, and did, screw small vendors out of their payments so they would be ruined.
