The Democrats have spent four years trying to kick President Trump out of office.
Now they are saying he should be thrown in jail the moment he leaves.
And now Mike Pence could end up as the President in this most bizarre twist to the election.
Assuming Joe Biden takes office on January 20 next month, there’s no doubt that Biden and his administration will be facing a ton of pressure from their leftist base and radical leftist media to throw Donald Trump into prison.
The anti-American radical New York Attorney General Letita James recently went on ABC’s The View and discussed her prediction that Trump will step down as President so Mike Pence can assume office and pardon Trump.
All of this – she claims – is because a memo from the Department of Justice in 1974 made the argument that the President of the United States was legally barred from pardoning himself.
“He can preemptively pardon individuals, and the vast majority of legal scholars have indicated that he cannot pardon himself,” James told the hosts of ABC’s The View. “What he could do is step down and allow the Vice President – Vice President Pence – to pardon him.”
“I suspect at some point in time he will step down and allow the Vice President to pardon him,” James continued.
The reality is, Trump has not said he would pardon himself, or even expressed a desire to do so.
In a Tweet two years ago, he simply stated that there are several legal scholars that have told him he could – but added that he doesn’t know why he would when he hasn’t done anything wrong.
But the Fake News Media and radical leftists are taking this as an admission that President Trump is going to try to pardon himself so that no one can prosecute him for his “crimes against America.”
Even if President Trump did decide to step down and have Mike Pence preemptively pardon him, it would be out of response to the Democrats vindictively seeking to throw Trump in prison for winning the 2016 election in the first place.
If Joe Biden and the Democrats actually pursue this, it will be Trump Derangement Syndrome in the worst form you have ever seen it.
