Pardons, All Around! On Me.

One of the points Alan Dershowitz made in the Op-Ed I linked in Friday’s post:

I think it is important to put to rest the notion that there was anything criminal about the president exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and to request – “hope” – that he let go the investigation of General Flynn. Just as the president would have had the constitutional power to pardon Flynn and thus end the criminal investigation of him, he certainly had the authority to request the director of the FBI to end his investigation of Flynn.

I agree; I recommend that President Trump pardon General Flynn immediately.

But wait! I’m not done yet…

He should also grant pardons to Hillary Clinton, Huma Weiner, John Podesta, Cheryl Mills, the rest of her campaign staff as well as Paul Manafort and the entire Trump campaign staff - for any and all crimes committed during the 2016 presidential campaign. (NOTE: The pardons would specifically exclude any and all crimes related to the murder of Seth Meyers or “Pizzagate.” )


And while he’s at it, why not pardon all the Russians as well?

Then, as there are no crimes related to the Russian attempt to influence the 2016 election to investigate, there is no need for a Special Prosecutor. So, Mr. Mueller…


“I’ve found that ‘no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
