When it comes to the Deep State, President Trump should take no chances, says Sean Hannity. I agree.
The Hill reports:
Sean Hannity said on his radio and television shows Monday that he thinks President Trump should pardon himself in order to avoid a potential prosecution from the incoming Biden administration.
The conservative host referred to an op-ed by a former member of the special counsel’s office, Andrew Weissman, arguing for Trump to be investigated and potentially prosecuted by the next administration.
“If that’s what they want to do, if Biden ever became president, I’d tell Trump to pardon yourself and pardon your family,” Hannity said on his Fox News show late Monday.
Article II Section 2 of the Constitution simply says that the “President shall…have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States.” As much as liberals would love to spend the next 4 years investigating President Trump and using the power of the Deep State against him, they won’t be able to do anything if he pardons himself.
Trump himself tweeted in 2018:
As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!
