Is it an impeachable offense to promise someone a pardon if they commit a crime for you?
Just moments after a second judge sentenced Paul Manafort to prison, news broke about a New York State Grand Jury indicting him on pardon proof charges.
Paul Manafort gets another 47 months in another disappointing sentence, but the Manhattan DA is now pressing charges, too. Trump cannot pardon those.
Doug Burns disagrees.
But former prosecutor Doug Burns called that "an aggressive prediction."
Trump refused to weigh in on whether or not Mueller's report ought to be made public and said it's "totally up to" his attorney general Matthew Whitaker whether that happens or not. Trump also refused to say whether or not he'd pardon Roger Stone.
A look at why the Mueller investigation didn't really need Paul Manafort.
Literally no one would be shocked if Donald Trump pardoned Paul Manafort
Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son, Stephen Hammond are the latest to receive pardons from the president. I wonder if he's sending a message to people who blatantly break Federal law?
Oh really? Trump tweets that he can pardon himself, but has anyone told him that's the end of his presidency?
