If you know anything about Donald J. Trump, you know that he won’t be leaving office quietly.
In bombshell news, The Hill reports that Trump plans to issue over a hundred pardons and commutations on his final day in office, including pardons for political allies.
The Hill reports:
“…new batch of clemency actions will include white-collar criminals, high-profile rappers and others. It will likely include some pardons aimed at advocating for criminal justice reform, as well as controversial pardons for political allies.
According to the original report by CNN (which we must note is a very suspect source) “The list of potential pardons, however, does not currently include Trump himself.” Whether that’s true or not remains to be seen.
The debate over whether Trump should pardon himself is a hot one, even among allies of the president. Those opposed, believe that Trump has done nothing wrong and a pardon would be an admission of guilt, at least from a PR perspective. Those in favor argue that the Deep State will likely seek to punish Trump regardless of wrongdoing.
What do you think? Should Trump pardon himself while he still has the chance? Or should he stand confident in his innocence? Comment below – in my opinion there is no wrong answer.
