Trump Wants to Pardon Himself

Read what I posted above (long quote from USA Today). Basically it’s 2/3rds to remove him from office but only a simple majority to disqualify him from holding office again.

 

that's what the Senate says. Having never been tested it would go to the courts if he wanted to challenge it, just like Trump's self pardon which the Justice Department determined was illegal back in the 70s.

 

I'm not lawyer but I wonder why they think it would require a simple majority lol. Doesn't make intuitive sense at all.

I'm convinced he knew at this moment he didn't want to be President.    His narcissistic ego bit off more than his fat lazy ass could chew.    I take solace in knowing he's going t

For a while I thought it would be best for the Dem nominee to let Trump off the hook so we didn’t start a war or see a huge rise in sectarian violence. I changed my mind before yesterday, but yesterda

That’s fine. There is precedent. Let him contest it. 

 

Regardless, impeach the fucker and then disqualify him. They have the votes. Probably not to convict but certainly enough to disqualify him. It would be a presidential first.

I’m honestly hoping he runs again in 2024 and it ends once and for all the Republican Party. I know it’s somewhat a risk with how crazy Republicans are, but at least with Trump you know he’s stupid. Someone else with his exact same ideology but who is reserved and intelligent poses a much bigger threat to the country, and we know for a fact those same Republicans will fall in goose step anyways. 
 

This doesn’t mean I disagree he needs to be impeached and hopefully disqualified. Even that may not stop him from trying and the party is truly fractured. I guess that’s my hope. Let him be disqualified and then run anyways.

A vote to disqualify him of only 50 Democrats and Harris will enrage them over more and might not even work.

We needed Republicans to stand up for what's right, but they didn't at any point of all this, so here were are.

Romney would vote to disqualify, IMO. A handful of others might, too.

I too am afraid of Tom Cotton running.

But then couldnt a new senate just reinstate his ability later?.. thus creating an even stronger following?

I’m not sure if they can dis-disqualify him or not. Where is the mechanism for that?

 

But even if they could, who cares? Disqualify him.

He said that he preferred to just wait it out because Trump's term ends so soon

But he didn’t say he wouldn’t vote to convict/disqualify him in the event of a trial. It seems pretty clear that he would.

I do not think you can pardon the leader of sedition.  I would not want to pardon anyone but the idiots with zero leadership status.  Tell them God didn't pardon the devil, so go to hell.  Regular prison with the Trumptards.

 

Sorry, too many replies to read if this has been stated.
