What is going on is unprecedented, Donald Trump and his staff discussing pardons, after just six months in office!
If there is nothing to hide, no wrong doing, why even discuss what makes it seems that Trump is guilty?
Why block an investigation if one knows he has done nothing that would require the thought of a pardon?
And why the arrogance that a President can pardon himself, when Richard Nixon thought of the idea in 1974, but decided it would make clear of his guilt, and he cared about his name in history?
It is clear that we are in a constitutional crisis far greater than even Richard Nixon forced upon us in 1973-1974.
We have an arrogant man who thinks he is like a King or an Emperor, and he needs to be told that the investigation by Robert Mueller will go forth, and that he had better not dare to have him fired, as that would be an admission of guilt.
At that point, the people around Trump need to resign, and Mike Pence needs to use the 25th Amendment Section 4, and become, at the least, Acting President, as the President will then face the Congress, even under the Republican Party, with the need to move forward on impeachment.
During that crisis period, Trump would be capable of irrational actions, including using nuclear weapons on North Korea, and contemplating martial law and suspension of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.
Many would say this is hysteria, but it really is not so, and Mike Pence and the Republicans must put the nation above the President, and do what is right!
