Pardon me: While he's president, can Trump pre-emptively protect hi...

Dodds explained that while Trump is free to pardon anyone he pleases, including his own family and inner circle, for any crime that's been committed while he's in office, this only applies to federal offences. Or to return to the aforementioned section from the U.S. Constitution, "offences against the United States."

This means that offences that violate state law, such as those being investigated by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. in New York against Trump, cannot be forgiven with a presidential pardon.

Another limitation of a presidential pardon is that it can't be used in cases of impeachment, meaning the president cannot use a pardon to undo an impeachment by the House or an impeachment conviction by the Senate.

Joan, Trump might just pardon himself and all his associates before any case is even heard and determined

Comment was by Mrs.B on November 24, 2020 at 5:56pm

I hope so, & I also have a big hope that he will be stripped of that title of office, as well.

Comment was by Joan Denoo on November 24, 2020 at 5:55pm

Trump allegedly committed crimes while in the White House and serving as POTUS and has to be held accountable, with no pardon from some misguided authority. His family has not followed the rules of family members and also needs to stand before a jury and judge. They are not above the law.

And if I see Fox "News" on the TV in a public place, I'll ask that they change the channel or turn it off. If I'm polite and diplomatic, I'll say that it's divisive; if I'm feeling more direct I'll say they spread lies and Republican propaganda.

Another option is a device like TV-B-Gone, a specialized small remote control that turns off many TVs. Or there are various apps for some smartphones that have infrared transmitters.

Comment was by Mrs.B on November 24, 2020 at 2:49pm

Never watched, never will watch.

Comment was by Loren Miller on November 24, 2020 at 10:02am

Stuff like that should be rubbed in Fox News' nose until they can't stand the stink of it.  They call themselves a serious news organization and do something THAT stupid?

One more reason why I WILL NOT watch Fox News, and just about the only think I watch on Fox in general is football.
