Trump may grant self presidential pardon for Capitol invasion – White House sources shocked

United States President Donald Trump is considering pardoning himself, New York Times reports.

The Republican will be out of office on January 20, the day President-elect Joe Biden assumes power.

The newspaper cited two sources said to be privy to Trump discussing the clemency with his aides.

It said Trump has raised the plan with his advisers since November.

Between December 22 and 24, 2020, he approved scores of pardons, including to allies convicted for criminal offences.

The President is reportedly weighing both the legal and political implications of a self-pardon shocked.

Trump fears perceived enemies will “use the levers of law enforcement to target him” after his exit.

It is unclear if the rumoured pardon would include a probe that might link him to the Capitol Building invasion.

Calls are growing for Trump’s impeachment over Wednesday’s attack by his supporters.

Meanwhile, a Police officer has died, increasing the death toll from the Capitol invasion to five.

Reports say US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund will step down next week.

Then president Trump would have set an escapist lawlessness for other tyrants to follow suit.He must be arrested and prosecuted for all the impunity his govt bequeathed on the US.

This Man! History will remember you!

I remember how people pushed one coffin as a change agent. Since 2015 some are dead, some have fled the country in shame to western nations, others have become useless for life and wait till elections to change clothes!

America will always have it better though.

Man Like Trump!

Mad senseless man. He has insulted everyone and sent his thugs to attack US lawmakers and now seeking self-pardon, meaning being a judge in his own case.
It's Pence that i blame. That man is too nice and gentle. They have told him, gather the cabinet, invoke the 25th amendment and shove this mad man away, he is refusing.
Thank God for Nancy Pelosi. The House of Reps are planning to impeach him by mid next week, though I'm sure Senate will not, but it will be on record that he's the first president to be impeached twice. After being the first president to lose by popular votes twice.
I really enjoyed what a Russian official said yesterday. That "American democracy is now wobbling on both feet" very funny.
