Right-wingers are egging on Trump to pardon every person Mueller indicts — including himself

Published

President Donald Trump’s conservative allies are encouraging him to fight special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe by issuing pardons to every single person he indicts.

Politico reports that conservatives are calling on Trump to pardon suspects indicted by Mueller as a way of lowering their willingness to cooperate with the probe.

“I think he should be pardoning anybody who’s been indicted and make it clear that anybody else who gets indicted would be pardoned immediately,” Frederick Fleitz, a former CIA analyst and senior vice president at the conservative Center for Security Policy, told Politico.

“It’s kind of cruel what’s going on right now and the president should put these defendants out of their misery,” right-wing activist Larry Klayman told the publication. “I think he should pardon everybody — and pardon himself.”

The family of Michael Flynn in particular has been lobbying Trump to pardon his former national security adviser, who last year pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and who is now cooperating with Mueller’s probe.

However, alt-right activist Mike Cernovich told Politico that Trump needs to be cautious with his pardons — and that he should only issue blanket pardons if Democrats retake Congress this fall.

“If the Democrats take over, pardon everyone,” he said. “They’re coming for you anyway. They have their nuke with impeachment. You have your nuke with pardons. And then settle in for an interesting two years.”

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
