A Self-Pardon Or One By a President Pence?
We begin with Attorney General Barr dispatching U.S. Attorneys across the country to look into voter fraud in an effort to lend credibility to Trump’s bogus claims that the election he lost was stolen. Joining us is Harry Litman, a former United States Attorney and Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Justice Department who is the Executive Producer and Host of the “Talking Feds” podcast and a columnist at The Los Angeles Times where his latest articles are “Trump’s lawsuits won’t make a difference” and “Can Trump self-pardon? He can try…” We discuss the principle that no person can be a judge in his own cause and since a self-pardon would put the president above the law, it is clearly not what the framers of the Constitution intended. However Trump could resign before January 20th and have a President Pence pardon him and his family of all federal crimes, leaving our criminal-in-chief subject to state prosecutions.
