Trump pardons...Trump?


If Gerald Ford was able to preemptively pardon Richard Nixon, what would stop Trump from doing that to himself? Why doesn't every president do that, just in case?

2Most Presidents believe that that would tarnish their legacy. Where there is a pardon, there must be a crime, the public perception would go. And the idea that "most" Presidents do routinely do criminal acts is just plain wrong. – o.m. – 2020-12-03T05:06:05.757

It's amazing how many people believe The President has committed a crime yet cannot name what that crime was. – Frank Cedeno – 2020-12-03T15:46:44.030

@FrankCedeno I agree. The reason I ask is because there has been a lot of discussion about it. – Burt – 2020-12-04T01:05:00.040
