I think of pardon powers like I do a Veto.

A pardon is in effect a veto over a judicial action. I cant believe that the only limit from a president abusing his pardon powers has to come from the legislative ( in the form of impeachment)

Trump cannot pardon himself .

I think the next Congress should make this explicit through an amendment.. President should not be able to pardon himself , any of his family , friends , donors or political appointees.
