It has now leaked that Trump went to Walter Reed for a PET scan of his brain. The White House does not have a pet scanner. They are clearly following up on how quickly his brain is decomposing
I’m approaching 100% certainty that Donnie had a small stroke. He’s notorious for kissing off advice on ANYthing, so I doubt he’ll follow doctors’ warnings about his diet and lifestyle. Who celebrates or bemoans that reflects our division.
Like Ford and Tricky Dick..
How are we gonna get that ‘old man smell’ out of the Whitehouse?
I’d say that bird is ready for the axe, not a pardon. Too bad it’s too tainted to eat. Even dogs wouldn’t touch that bird.
Gimme an axe… STAT!!!
In cases involving impeachment there can be no pardon. Dems need to follow through so the turkey can be roasted at a date to come.
Two drawbacks to Trump’s impeachment.
fake news—- he has windmill cancer!!
Setting up a defense in the event criminal charges are filed once he is out of office . blame it on medical issues .
Are not Pence’s hands covered in blood*?*
I think it’s time this notion of ‘presidential pardon’ ought to be seriously investigated, that is, whether there is any basis in the Constitution for it, or whether, like being ‘immune to prosecution while in office’, it is nothing more than an accepted ‘guideline’. If nothing else, trump’s misbehavior in office should serve as a means to clean up that little corner of the world once and for all.
@Eugeno: “I think it’s time this notion of ‘presidential pardon’ ought to be seriously investigated, that is, whether there is any basis in the Constitution for it….”
It’s in the Constitution. The President has the right to pardon anyone for the commission of federal crimes, but a pardon of conviction upon impeachment is specifically excluded, as are convictions at the non-federal level.
The lingering question in my mind is whether a person can be pardoned for a crime without first being convicted of said crime. In other words, was Ford’s pardon of Nixon actually valid? It certainly seems wrong to me that a person can be “pardoned” of any and all unspecified crimes that they might or might not have committed.
However, I also think that the whole concept of a pardon by the President (or a Governor) is an improper extension of the old concept of a “royal” pardon, which should never have become part of our “rule of law”. For that purpose, we have Appeals Courts, up to and including the Supreme Court… and they should be far more qualified to judge an “appeal” than any executive acting alone.
Yes, I’m actually advocating a Constitutional Amendment to remove the Presidential pardon from our body of law.
