Considering all the various “alleged” crimes he’s committed — obstruction of justice, money laundering, illegally refusing to implement the required sanctions against Russia, conspiracy against the United States, you name it, etc. — it’s certainly no secret that Donald Trump has slowly but surely been paving his way to impeachment. And should the Democrats win the congressional majority in November’s midterm elections, one would think his impeachment highly likely.
Well, according to a prominent Democratic Senator, it might as well be, because we now have a clear roadmap.
Earlier in the week, Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, who sits on one of the committees investigating the Trump-Russia scandal, was kind enough to share a news article detailing the calls for Trump to begin pardoning his own people.
Sheldon Whitehouse says: Far right freaks out. Want a road to impeachment? This is it.
(Here’s the Politico article referenced)
“I think he should be pardoning anybody who’s been indicted and make it clear that anybody else who gets indicted would be pardoned immediately,” said Frederick Fleitz, a former CIA analyst and senior vice president at the conservative Center for Security Policy.
“It’s kind of cruel what’s going on right now and the president should put these defendants out of their misery,” said Larry Klayman, a conservative legal activist. “I think he should pardon everybody — and pardon himself.”
And it makes so much sense now that the lens on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s microscope has zeroed in on Donald Trump and everyone else involved in the Trump-Russia scandal. So yeah, conservative groups are right to be freaking out and urging Trump to begin pardoning everyone involved. But would the courts accept those pardons? Probably not, considering it would be illegal for Trump to pardon his alleged co-conspirators. But will that stop Trump? Again…probably not.
Can’t you just picture it now? If Mueller doesn’t bring the hammer down before November, by then, the Democrats will be in prime position to impeach Donald Trump for everything…EVERYTHING…once and for all.
