It Just Gets Better and Better

I'm shocked, shocked!

The Justice Department is investigating whether there was a secret scheme to lobby White House officials for a pardon as well as a related plot to offer a hefty political contribution in exchange for clemency, according to a court document unsealed Tuesday.

Pass the popcorn, please.

The fundies offer Get Out Of Hell passes, why shouldn't Trump (who is a mundane televangelist) offer Get Out of Jail passes?

Trumpgate! Lock hip up, lock him up!

Seriously, did we not expect that there were "irregularities"
inside the Drumpf house? Grifting and collecting on it is his thing.

In my opinion and also likely is this is at best only the tip of the
crime family of Drumpf's iceberg is starting to show. Every time a
rock is turned over there will likely be more.

A question for Ms. Fit. Does a pardon need to have a specific crime to refer to? Or can this ‘preemptive pardon’ cover any crime(s) that are discovered after the gang is out of office?

If Trump was involved, I doubt it would be getting investigated.
This sounds more like someone claiming he will take your money and steer your request to Trump.

It had to do with Elliot Broidy, Abbe Lowell, and a couple of corrupt fuckers from the Bay Area, and it didn't actually happen. The guy trying to buy the pardon went to jail and has already been released, at least according to the NYT.

Dale, there are preemptive pardons, see Nixon, Richard.
