Jennifer Rubin: Trump will resign 10 minutes before next inauguration so Mike Pence can pardon him

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin predicted over the weekend that President Donald Trump will resign 10 minutes earlier than planned, giving Vice President Mike Pence the opportunity to pardon him.

On Sunday, political analyst and politicians suggested that the Department of Justice may be waiting until Trump leaves office before indicting him for campaign finance violations, obstruction of justice or other crimes.

But according to Rubin, Trump has already devised a plan to thwart any attempt at indicting him. During an interview on MSNBC, Rubin pointed out that Justice Department rules against indicting a sitting president have never been litigated.

“He risks being prosecuted after he leaves office,” she explained. “For that very reason, I would predict here on MSNBC that when Trump leaves office, he will resign the presidency 10 minutes before Mike Pence leaves office, allowing Pence to pardon him.”

“Wow!” MSNBC guest host Jonthan Capehart replied. “We got that on tape.”

Here’s why President Trump’s explicit racism is an impeachable offense

Published

on

Without even waiting for former special counsel Robert Mueller to testify about President Donald Trump's obstruction of justice, Democrats are legally justified in acting now to impeach the president for his explicit racism, a civil rights activist argued on Friday.

Journalist and author Shaun King laid out his argument in a column published by The Intercept.

To make his argument, King explained the difference between implicit and explicit racism.

"Across the country, corporations and government agencies, including police departments, are offering a wave of what’s called 'implicit bias training.' The fundamental theory is that, in this country, otherwise well-meaning employees can be racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or xenophobic in ways that they may not really even be aware of," he explained. "It’s the notion that people unknowingly or unconsciously discriminate against others."
