Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 16, 2018

President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told CBS News correspondent Paula Reid on Friday that he advised Trump not to issue any pardons until the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Giuliani said Trump agrees that issuing pardons ahead of its conclusion would not be helpful. Giuliani also said he will leave the case after the Mueller probe ends, and that it will be up to White House counsel to help decide whether anyone is pardoned. Giuliani said Trump should pardon anyone the president believes has been treated unfairly.

By which he means "treated unfairly" = "found guilty".

The pardon brigade keeps forgetting that to accept a pardon is to admit guilt for the charged offenses and to lose all 5th Amendment rights as to not truthfully reveal everything that you know to any prosecutors who ask you questions. Such unfettered discovery on the part of prosecutors would enable further charges to be leveled against any conspirators tied to the pardoned offenses and non-pardoned offenders as well.

If Trump were to pardon himself, he would be subject to immediate impeachment, having admitted to committing 'high crimes and misdemeanors' in the course of accepting said pardon. Something tells me any charged offenses against Trump will be far more significant than those that supported Bill Clinton's impeachment for lying under oath.

What could be sweeter than Ivanka and Don Jr. receiving pardons and then being compelled to testify against their father?
