Question for Trump Supporters
supporter
Posted by Gunnar Emilsson (+17321) 10 months ago
Should The Donald pardon the Capitol rioters because they are True Patriots who were just trying to Stop the Steal?

OR

Should he let them be prosecuted they really are not Trump supporters, they are Antifa and BLM masquerading as Trump supporters, trying to make the True Patriots look bad?

Curious what you brain dead morons think, as I obviously am not watching the same conspiracy YouTube videos that you are.

No tRump supporter will listen to this. They are too frightened and too brainwashed and manipulated to ever admit they are scared and beyond reasonable thought. But here it is:

I don't think he will pardon the thugs as it would almost be an admission of guilt on his part. No he will slump of to Florida and hide.

Word is that pardons are spendy. I doubt many of them can afford the price tag.

Whomever he pardons loses their Fifth Amendment protections. They could therefore have to testify without immunity in cases that could implicate #45. Tricky business on who to pardon.

Plus he can't issue a blanket pardon to his family for "everything." Has to be a charged crime.

A quick note about the Fifth Amendment. Everyone has the right to not incriminate themselves, but things get a little weird when it comes to pardons. Since a pardon is a special privilege that prevents that person from being prosecuted for any federal crime, in essence, they can no longer invoke the Fifth Amendment because they cannot be incriminated. However, Presidential pardons only work on the Federal level, so a person would still have Fifth Amendment protections at the State level.

There could be a case that only involved a federal level crime and therefore a pardoned person would be incapable of taking the Fifth. But it is not suggesting that anyone that has received a pardon can no longer use the Fifth Amendment.

NAL.

When North Vietnam defeated South Vietnam . Didn't they do a reeducation program for the South Vietnam people? And where we all the people at the inauguration. Look like it was something you'd find in North Korea. Had more troops the people. Where his supporters home in there basement napping. Trumps farewell speech had three time more people watching the Joe's inauguration speech. Now there's something to be proud of.
