There is an exception to the power of pardon, that it shall not extend to cases of impeachment, which takes from the president every temptation to abuse it in cases of political and official offences by persons in the public service. The power of impeachment will generally be applied to persons holding high offices under the government; and it is of great consequence, that the president should not have the power of preventing a thorough investigation of their conduct, or of securing them against the disgrace of a public conviction by impeachment, if they should deserve it. The constitution has, therefore, wisely interposed this check upon his power, so that he cannot, by any corrupt coalition with favourites, or dependents in high offices, screen them from punishment.

Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution

 

 

Kurt Schlichter, attorney, retired Army Colonel and conservative commentator, is right:

 

They are not even pretending now. Imagine, just imagine, if Trump had erased 30,000 emails that were under subpoena. Hillary did, and it’s cool. Andrew McCabe and Comey lied through their teeth to Congress. They’ll never be charged. Ever.

The FBI cabal set up Mike Flynn and they don’t feel like coming clean to the judge so they just aren’t going to. Mueller’s Democrats erased a boatload of texts, but who cares? Nothing matters. They get a pass. Who in the DoJ is ever going to prosecute anyone other than whatever Trump administration official or eccentric hanger-on is gullible enough to talk to the Feds?

This is all a lie and a scam. And Donald Trump can and should use his pardon power to highlight this fraud before he drives a stake into the heart of the elite’s soft coup play.

He should pardon everyone.

I mean everyone.

Pardon Flynn, and Manafort, and Papadopliswhateverhisnameis. Pardon Stone and Corsi. Pardon Don, Jr., Jared, and Ivanka. Pardon Melania and Barron. Pardon Pence, and Pence’s pets. And then he should pardon himself.

For everything. Take it all off the table. Strip the elite of its ability to coerce perjury and ruin lives for the sin of dissenting.

Pardon everyone, for everything.

It’s all a lie and a scam anyway, and there’s no sense pretending this is all some kind of legit truth-seeking exercise in support of lofty and noble principles. It’s a tawdry frame job by a failed elite desperate to hold on to the power that the people revoked in November 2016. We owe the ruling class no respect; there’s no reason to pretend this Mueller farce is anything but a transparent attempt to claw-back the authority the elite forfeited by being terrible.

Oh no, they’ll impeach him! They’re going to impeach him anyway. He might as well flip them this bird first. When they get 67 senators, we can start caring. Until then, pardon this, jerks.

 

Go here to read the rest.  For the past 36 years I have been involved in tens of thousands of legal proceedings.  The campaign by the Deep State against Trump is political warfare disguised as a legal proceeding.  Schlichter  hits the nail squarely on the head when he compares and contrasts the treatment by the Establishment of Hillary Clinton and her husband, two obvious criminals, with the treatment of Trump.  This all came about because Trump appointed a very weak man, Jeff Sessions, as Attorney General.  At the first hint of possible legal jeopardy to himself, he threw Trump to the wolves of the Department of Justice, and what an Orwellian title that is, and allowed them to unleash a Special Prosecutor to conduct an unlimited fishing expedition against Trump and his cohorts.  Sessions, the poor fool, I think still doesn’t understand what happened.  Trump, a babe in the woods as to the ways of Washington, and surrounded by useless sycophants and toadies, had no effective way of responding other than his worthless tweets.  Ironically, the man he should have appointed as Attorney General, the brilliant and combative Ted Cruz, he did his best to make a mortal enemy of during the campaign.  Now it is open political warfare, with a thin veneer of court proceedings, and Trump had better stop tweeting and begin fighting.  This is a political fight and the proper forum is impeachment by the House and trial in the Senate.  Bring it on Democrats.

  1. The suggestion is already Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) – on the Left – see Administrative/Deep State operative Comey not investigating felonious, incompetent Hillary.

    Because it’s different when Democrats do it and shut up.

  2. I weep to think of how much better it would have been for
    this nation if Cruz and not Sessions had been Attorney
    General these past two years. And Sessions’ vacated
    Senate seat was lost to the Democrats…

    I’d love to see Cruz eventually be appointed to SCOTUS,
    but after the outrage that was the Kavanaugh hearings, it
    would require a heroic resolve on his part to submit himself
    and his family to the circus that would become. Just
    imagine.

    As for these erased texts and emails, I recall a certain Republican
    President who got into deep legal trouble in part over 18-or-
    so minutes of erased audiotape that was under subpoena…
    But that was then, back when the Rule of Law meant some-
    thing still. If Nixon were a Democrat and Watergate happened
    today, there’d be no threat of impeachment, and no resignation.

  3. Someone in the personnel apparat recommended Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray for the positions they now hold. Those responsible have a great deal of explaining to do. Wray has been acting to shield agents from scrutiny. As for Rosenstein, the Mueller investigation is his baby.
