    The 19th of Jan could be a busy day for Pardons.

    It will be interesting to see how Trump issues pardons for crimes that may have to be specified.

    It should give some insight into who and what crimes they themselves believe they have committed.

    A POTUS and his minions are so corrupt that the POTUS has to issue mass pardons to his family and minions, hardly normal for any administration by any stretch of the imagination.

    Corruption at the extreme.

    A self pardon for Trump seems unlikely to be upheld, so Trump may still be at risk of Federal Criminal charges.

    Anyway, we'll see what the 19th brings.


    Trump has prepared his pardon list for family and aides—and maybe himself

    January 9, 2021

    President Donald Trump has prepared a sweeping list of individuals he’s hoping to pardon in the final days of his administration that includes senior White House officials, family members, prominent rappers -- and possibly himself, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Trump is hoping to announce the pardons on Jan. 19 -- his final full day in office -- and his ideas are currently being vetted by senior advisers and the White House counsel’s office, the people said.

    The biggest question facing his legal team may be whether the president has the authority to pardon himself, as he has discussed in recent weeks with top aides, according to the people familiar with his conversations. Trump has previously claimed the power, though it’s a matter of legal dispute and has never before been attempted by a president.

    A self-pardon could also prove a major political liability and hamstring another presidential bid, with opponents sure to suggest the self-pardon amounted to an admission that he thought he might be prosecuted for breaking the law.

    Preemptive pardons are under discussion for top White House officials who have not been charged with crimes, including Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, senior adviser Stephen Miller, personnel chief John McEntee, and social media director Dan Scavino.

    The president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, her husband, Jared Kushner, who both hold White House positions, are also under consideration, the people said. Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has also discussed the issue of a pardon with the president.

    Preemptive pardons are also under consideration for other members of the president’s family, as well as friends and allies. For instance, Trump has floated a preemptive pardon for Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host who is dating his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

    The president wants the preemptive pardons to shield recipients from prosecutions for any federal crimes committed before the pardons were issued.

    He’s also considering a traditional pardon for Albert Pirro, who previously worked with the president on real estate deals and was convicted of tax fraud. Pirro is the ex-husband of Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, a former district attorney of Westchester County in New York.
