Trump is looking into whether he can pardon himself and his mob family. Maybe he should have looked into that before becoming committing impeachable crimes? #guiltyasshit#resignmotherfucker.
Some of President Trump’s lawyers are exploring ways to limit or undercut special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation, building a case against what they allege are his conflicts of interest and discussing the president’s authority to grant pardons, according to people familiar with the effort.
Trump has asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe, according to one of those people. A second person said Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves.
Trump’s legal team declined to comment on the issue. But one adviser said the president has simply expressed a curiosity in understanding the reach of his pardoning authority, as well as the limits of Mueller’s investigation.
The power to pardon is granted to the president in Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, which gives the commander in chief the power to “grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” That means pardon authority extends to federal criminal prosecution but not to state level or impeachment inquiries.
No president has sought to pardon himself, so no courts have reviewed it. Although Kalt says the weight of the law argues against a president pardoning himself, he says the question is open and predicts such an action would move through the courts all the way to the Supreme Court.
Descansa en paz Chester, finalmente la has conseguido. El mundo lamenta la perdida de tu talento y don vocal, tus fans te extrañaremos y esperamos que sea lo que sea que haya después de ésta vida te de la felicidad que mereces– tu lucha y esfuerzo en vida nos inspira a todos. Gracias por intentarlo. Siempre te querremos Chester fue un sobreviviente de abuso infantil y lucho durante años con el alcoholismo y las drogas. Su historia y desenlace nos recuerda lo importante que es pedir y conseguir ayuda. Nunca estamos solos, acabemos con el estigma. El suicidio y la depresión son reales. Hay que luchar contra ello. -
More people getting arrested for sit-ins at senator's offices too...I truly don't think trump firing Mueller would mean shit to Mueller. I think he may expect it. He's prepared for whatever. He's not a dumb man. Trump is. Mueller is the one that's planned for this, and taken great caution to ensure that what he is doing is solid. The investigation will continue as it did when Comey was fired. None of that would make it okay though. We still have to have our voices heard. Idk about everyone else, but I'm personally tired of watching this shit happen. This is what we need to be doing. They aren't fucking around, and we can't be either. We have to decide what we are willing to take. This is trump's fault, make no mistake, but we could have done this already and held our ground. He's been getting away with stuff because we sort of let him. This isn't to blame ANYONE, because this is on trump & co at the end of the day & what we've done as the resistance has been incredible. I also know that we teach people how to treat us. If that's true on a smaller scale, it would hopefully be true on a larger scale as well. We decide when we've had enough. We just have to decide when, and be serious. Stop society. Fill the streets. I'm personally just done and ready to show them what true patriots look like. People fight for us overseas. What the hell are we letting them come back to? Again, not our fault. But, we have options we haven't utilized. I wonder if we are perhaps waiting for someone to save us, like we feel Mueller can do? Maybe he will be able to, but we have to be willing to show up and do our part, or I fear we are in danger of losing America entirely as we knew her. Keep up the good fight resisters. It's been six months that have just felt like ten years, but we have come so far. -Mo
Night Market with some of our Big Boys. They carried my basket and we ate pulled pork and crêpes and handcrafted, locally sourced popsicles. We sampled fresh blueberries and met up with my friends and relished a break from the humidity brought about by dusk. They mock fought over riding shotgun and we sorted English translations while our popsicles dripped onto the gravel parking lot and, when we got back to their house where the other boys were lounging, we passed around a crate of blueberries grown on my friend @dance.heather 's family farm and God! An evening like that gives you space to take the deep breath you hadn't realized you were holding.
