Thread: Professor of law: 'The obstruction of justice case against Trump is already a slam dunk.'

Congressional Democrats to file emoluments lawsuit against Trump
[link to www.washingtonpost.com (secure)]

Former Obama administration ethics lawyer Norman Eisen says that President Trump cannot pardon himself.

Eisen, along with Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe and Richard Painter who was chief White House ethics lawyer for George W. Bush, wrote in an op-ed that Trump cannot pardon himself citing the "fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case."

"But there is one thing we know that Trump cannot do - without being a first in all of human history. He cannot pardon himself," they said.

Re: Obama ethics chief: 'No, Trump can't pardon himself'
By certain logic then, a complete despot could buy/bride/swindle their way into the White House and commit any number of atrocities and then, simple as that, pardon him/her self?

Don't seem right.

They are chasing him with fake news.
What they are doing to the POTUS is a fucking disgrace.
What he said is if you don't end this shit. Then I will. I will issue a pardon so that all this crap ends and you are pissing in the wind by chasing it.

This is what 4D chess looks like

If Trump's judgememt was sound I wouldn't mind if he pardoned himself.

But if his judgement is in error....then no!

It would depemd on the story and circumstances for me to truly answer this.

The "ethics chief" in charge of bypassing laws which forbid goverment funding of abortions?

...telling foreign nationals to vote here to "participate"?
...the one in charge of pallets of currency?
...the one blaming a cartoon on Benghazi?
...the one in charge of gun-running to Mexico?
...the "keep your doctor" guy?
