Why Biden should pardon Trump -- and we Democrats should want him to

By Michael Conway, former counsel, U.S. House Judiciary Committee

If President-elect Joe Biden hopes to fulfill his pledge to unify the nation, he should do the unthinkable and pardon Donald Trump.

Trump would, of course, be one of the least deserving recipients of a federal pardon in history. His pardon could not be justified based on his innocence or his contrition because Trump is not contrite; to the contrary, he is currently endangering our democratic processes by relentlessly undermining the legitimacy of Biden’s election and thwarting a peaceful transition.

No wonder Biden’s initial instinct was to oppose granting Trump a pardon. He actually foreclosed this option by pledging last May that, if elected, he would not pardon Trump.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few good reasons to consider it anyway.

I disagree strongly.

Did the WWE fire Zelina Vega for wanting a union?

That's illegal.

Who's your pick for Joe's AG?

I'm gonna say Preet Bharara-what say you?

Joe Biden will be President on January 20, 2021

That's my take, legislatures and court challenges be damned

Folks, please question articles that suggest GA legislature will choose electors

Not happening.

Who selects the electors?

Choosing each State's electors is a two-part process. First, the political parties in each State choose slates of potential electors sometime before the general election. Second, during the general election, the voters in each State select their State's electors by casting their ballots.

You're being hoodwinked.

I'm at the point that I ENJOY wearing a mask

I used to catch a cold about twice a year, and now that I'm older a cold really takes a lot out of me. But now it's November, been wearing a mask since late March, and I haven't had a sniffle.

County says election worker in hiding after false claims of throwing out ballot


...While describing the process in front of a bipartisan group of observers, including Republican National Committee legal observers, Barron revealed an election worker from State Farm Arena was threatened over false claims of throwing out a ballot.

“He is in hiding,” Barron said.

...Barron said the worker was falsely accused of crumbling and discarding a ballot after the caption to a viral Twitter video went out this week.


“He is having to leave his house and go stay with friends,” Barron said. “He’s afraid to drive his car because the information about his car, about his license plate are out there.”

What is happening today does not bode well for the future

Even if Trump and his minions back off on his push to delegitimize the election, the GOP, like one who experiments and gains knowledge, may learn strategies from this and will probably try this again at a later time-and it could have a more serious outcome.

Please tell me I'm wrong.

Anyone remember Rove's statement about them creating their own reality?

Looks like the GOP is doing that right now

EDIT: May not have been Rove-it was an unnamed official
