Comey: Biden should consider pardoning Trump

Source: The Hill

Former FBI Director James Comey suggested President-elect Biden should consider pardoning President Trump if he faces criminal prosecution after leaving office.

"I don't know, he should at least consider it," Comey said during an interview with BBC Newsnight. "Donald Trump, he's not a genius, but he might figure out that if he accepts a pardon, that's an omission of guilt, the United States Supreme Court has said, so I don't know that he would accept a pardon."

Comey said that a potential pardon from Biden would help "as part of healing the country and getting us to a place where we can focus on things that are going to matter over the next four years."

"I think Joe Biden is going to have to at least consider it," he added.

Comey turned that election upside down--repeatedly. He dominated the 2016 election, from start to finish. If you take Comey's illegitimate antics out of the equation Clinton would have easily defeated Trump.

No, Comey, he is not going to go away. We're not going to make nice and "heal" by knuckling under to a traitor. He should never be out from under any charges.

He, like you, did the crime. Now you'll both have to live with the consequences.

33. And to believe

that it would help in the healing of the country? That is absolutely insane. People are never going to forget all that Trump has done and pardoning him will only give other dishonest corrupt politicians license to defy norms and break the law. If we don't hold a criminal like Trump accountable, then what does a president have to do?

I really can't believe that Comey said that. Yeah, I think he needs to stay in the wings.

81. "....like he has done his whole life."

Once again affirming that bad behavior is not only tolerated, it is rewarded. That certainly would sum up his entire life. Meanwhile, there are plenty of ambitious people out there, who would take that as confirmation that corruption in the pursuit of power is not only okay, but perhaps even preferred. I'm sure there are plenty of young Roger Stones and Steve Bannons out there waiting their turn.

20. Neville Chamberlain coming back from Munich

Ford pardoning Nixon and setting up a bad precedent because it was the "compassionate" thing to do was one thing. He was defeated and wasn't coming back. Ford should have had him plead out the charges and go with some sort of home confinement.

Trump represents a continuing danger to the country. He is leading a right wing fascist movement, and there is only one way to stop a fascist. That is to punch them in the nose (metaphorically). They will not stop otherwise until they die.

I bought his book, read it and believed much of it, but he’s still a Republican.

Forgiveness, f____k NO! Very strong examples need to be made of the insurrectionists and those elected leaders who were complicit. They need to fully understand that a free and democratic democracy has no place for them or their actions.

Forgiveness? Never.

Faith in American Democracy will never be fully restored until Trump is behind bars and those Senators and Congress members who STILL support that traitor are either recalled or voted out of office.

61. I bet he means that Biden should use the pardon as a bargaining chip with

the senate gop. and possibly to keep trump under control during the next week.

I doubt Comey has any sympathy for Trump, doubt he wants a pardon granted...just suggests a 'potential pardon' may provide some 'focus'. Just as a Biden AG and administration and dem subpoena power will provide some gop 'focus' pretty soon.

I hope Biden and his advisors have elbows sharp enough to gain the upper hand in negotiations.

I certainly don't want a pardon for Trump, especially for the most egregious misdeeds...but don't mind Biden using the potential as incentive...and don't mind pardons for minor transgressions in case of substantial benefit to the administration's objectives. Pardons for Russia/Ukraine conspiracies, pardons for coup attempts, pardons for election cheating including Georgia arm-bending? No way...but there could be pardons for a variety of more minor things such as Hatch violations. Only if it helps move legislation and nominees forward

Better idea: we air all Trump’s crimes and force the people who voted for that prick come to terms with what they did to this nation. Most of Trump’s voters have absolutely no idea what a thug he is. It’s time they learned. After they do, “Hang The Bastard” from Cannibal The Musical will become the most popular song in America.

telling me "Didya hear? Comey reopened the investigation!" While not entirely true, it occurred to me at the time, how many other people in how many other's barber's chairs were hearing the same thing?

So now Comey's saying, "Yeah, I helped put him into the Oval Office with my strategically timed press release. But then he fired me, so I suffered too. All Biden has to do is pardon Trump and everyone will just forget the past four years like that bad season of 'Dallas' which was just in Pam's head. Sound good?"

as long as Trump agrees to admit his guilt and state that there was no election fraud to boot!!!

After all, Trump should already be in NY state prison by then, so it's not like he will be getting off scot-free.
It will be consistent with Joe's unity talk, and Trump will still be in jail if he hasn't fled the country.

159. This still irritates me

I posted before.

We made this mistake with Nixon.

If you do not want this to happen again, you finish the job.
You make Trump pay big time to discourage those in the future.

This pardon garbage has helped Trump act with impunity.
It needs to stop.

168. I am beside myself with anger at Comey

NO, NO, NO--Biden should not pardon Trump. He needs to be prosecuted by an International Tribunal, as well as, the United States Government, and any State that has the goods on him.

169. I am 80% okay with Biden _considering_ it.

I don't have a problem with someone thinking of the sentiment that we need to try to pull the country together. And then for that person to try to think outside the box of ways that that could be done. In this case, such sentiment could lead one get an idea in their head to evaluate and consider such as a pardon.

But after that, they need to disqualify such idea because it is ultimately not a good thing for several reasons. One problem is that it would solidify a precedent of future Presidents pardoning past Presidents so if the President's VP takes office for whatever reason (like with Nixon and Ford), an ally or passive accomplice of a VP (like Pence) could pardon their boss. Then, in the specific case of Trump, he's got blood on his hands and has done tremendous damage to the country, not just for the insurrection, but for all the neglect of his office and propagandizing everything leading to people not wearing masks and getting others sick--he's just unworthy. President Trump is the poster boy for a President deserving of impeachment and consequences from trial.

Finally, I don't even think that complete unity is really a worthwhile goal. Do we really want unity with some of these types of people? I don't think so. The country would do well with trying to work with some Republicans...like say Kasich who do not condone violence. But there is a serious problem in the US right now of propaganda and a giant infrastructure that Trump helped to extend and magnify.

It needs to break. It cannot break if we sweep it all under the rug. Over time, the impeachment and trial need to propagate. People need to see the level of misinformation and how the Republican Party, OAN, QAnon, tabloid news, even conservative preachers like Ted Cruz's father all play a role in screwing over the country. Republicans need to go through their 4 stages of grief and come to acceptance of One Reality and that they've been bamboozled.

At the end of the day, it is okay to think about decisions and weigh consequences. A pardon is a very bad idea after thinking about it.
