Pardon Anarchy

Recommended Posts

It now needs it's own thread.  He's now discussing "blanket" pardoning himself, Ivanka, Jared, Giuliani, Don Jr and Erik.  I need some serious lawyering here.  Can you just pardon everything past, present and future with no charges of anything (yet)???  Someone here brilliantly asked can you blanket pardon yourself and then go rob banks for the rest of your life?  What the actual fucking banana republic are we living in?

Trump can’t afford to bribe himself for a pardon.    We know he won’t do anything for free.

I would have thought that pardons applied to convictions, Flynn e.g.

Pretty hard to pardon something that is not yet alleged, let alone convicted.  Must be plenty of shit yet to surface, too late to pardon on.

There has been a lot of discussion about a president being able to "pre-pardon" himself.  From what I've read, there is no precedent for this and so the law is not clear.  But there seems to be some legal scholars who believe the president cannot do this.

As always, in untried cases, the courts must decide.

If a president can pre-pardon himself, then the current President can unpardon him. I can't see any sane Justice thinking this would be OK.

I thought that accepting a pardon meant you had to declare guilt? 

Hard to do that when there is no charge. 

So....no you can't?

We're going to need a ruling on whether these allegations can be considered a "lack of political finesse", and are, therefore, "refreshing".

I was fortunate to hitch a ride on Tenacious for a tuning session one windy day back in the late 70s.  They were in Annapolis for the Fall Series.

Ted was hilarious in his criticisms of the sailing skills of various crewmembers, often wondering if their parents were married, or not.  It was non-stop.

Let Trump pre pardon himself, his family and the rest of his gangster cabal. He would be admitting guilt, so Trump should then be investigated, tried and convicted. Then worry about the pardon. At least Trumpalos will be made aware of the extent of the shitfuckery from the shitbag they blindly, dumbly supported.

Whether they accept that reality is another matter.

No doubt the Trump 2024 campaign will start hitting up the faithful for donations to fix the pardons for the World's Greatest ex-President, his loving family, and his faithful hunchback servant Rudy. (He's pretty fucking useless, but he's the last registered breathing lawyer who'll work for Trump.) 

The donations are needed because Trump Presidential pardons aren't cheap or free.

This is just more crazy shit from the more corrupt administration ever.  Any more guesses on who it is?  Brody is definitely the kind of scum who would try to turn his riches into a pardon.

Barr has made a career out of this.  That is why it is so scary.  He has wanted to get this in front of the supremes since he was in diapers.

From Wiki, the guy is a nutball, but he is fulfilling his lifelong dream.  

Barr is a longtime proponent of the unitary executive theory of nearly unfettered presidential authority over the executive branch of the U.S. government.[1][2][3] In 1989, Barr, as the head of the OLC, justified the U.S. invasion of Panama to arrest Manuel Noriega. As deputy attorney general, Barr authorized an FBI operation in 1991 which freed hostages at the Talladega federal prison. An influential advocate for tougher criminal justice policies, Barr as attorney general in 1992 authored the report The Case for More Incarceration, where he argued for an increase in the United States incarceration rate.[4] Under Barr's advice, President George H. W. Bush in 1992 pardoned six officials involved in the Iran–Contra affair.

The unitary executive theory is a theory of United States constitutional law which holds that the President of the United States possesses the power to control the entire executive branch. The doctrine is rooted in Article Two of the United States Constitution, which vests "the executive power" of the United States in the President. Although that general principle is widely accepted, there is disagreement about the strength and scope of the doctrine.[1] It can be said that some favor a "strongly unitary" executive, while others favor a "weakly unitary" executive. The former group argue, for example, that Congress's power to interfere with intra-executive decision-making (such as firing executive branch officials) is limited, and that the President can control policy-making by all executive agencies within the limits set for those agencies by Congress. Still others agree that the Constitution requires a unitary executive, but believe this to be harmful, and propose its abolition by constitutional amendment.[2] Plural executives exist in several states where, in contrast to the federal government, executive officers such as lieutenant governor, attorney general, comptroller, secretary of state, and others, are elected independently of the state's governor. The Executive Branch of the Texan state government is a textbook example of this type of executive structure. Another type of plural executive, used in Japan, Israel, and Sweden, though not in any US state, is one in which a collegial body composes the executive branch – however, that collegial body does not comprise multiple members elected in elections, but is rather more akin to the US Cabinet or UK Cabinet in formation and structure.

They should have him and his family each fill out a pre-application to see if they qualify for a pre-pardon. 

Please answer the following:

  1. Have you ever committed a crime?
  2. If so, please list, as specifically as you can, all the crimes you think you committed.  (Use the back of the page or use blank pages if you need extra space.)

If you haven't committed any crimes, you do not qualify for a pre-pardon.  However you can resubmit your application after admitting your crimes or committing new crimes.

Will the Trump President For Life SuperGriftFund start selling pardons to anybody for big donations?

Your enormous meth lab just got busted? $150K will get you a gen-u-wine presidential pardon and Made-in-China MAGA cap.  We have a special on murders, only $500K and your troubles go away. 

He needs a shitload of money for those loan payments due next year.

True.  Maybe Ivanka sent a bellhop from DC to San Antonio to sell him a MAGA bathrobe for $10,000.
