He’s a very good showman
Obama’s net worth increased 20 fold during his presidential term. Trumps decreased a lot. What does that tell you lol. Don’t trust CNN

There's usually a bureaucracy involved, that evaluates the potential recipients, not just celebrities asking nicely, and co-conspirators blackmailing the president.
@goaded Shut the fuck up. You didn't bitch when Obama did it, you didn't bitch when every other president in the history of the US did it, so you don't get to act holier then thou now. Stop being a hypocritical cunt, this is why people don't like you or the left, your a bunch of self righteous hypocritical pieces of shit. This is a normal process and always has been.
Obama didn't have to pardon any of his administration because they didn't commit any crimes. Trump's talking about pardoning his family and himself; why, if they didn't commit any crimes?
@goaded Obama didn't have to pardon his adminstration because the FBI refused to prosecute any of them like Hillary Clinton who broke the law and destroyed evidence (which that alone should have landed her in prison for the next twenty years). He also didn't have the FBI illegally spy on his campaign (he was the one doing the spying) nor did he have the FBI black mail and lie to punish one of his administrative picks (which is what they did to Micheal Flynn (both in trying to charge him with the logan act (which if democrats were not such monumental hypocritical cunts (like yourself) would be charging Biden and harris with because they actually are in violation of it as they haven't even been elected yet) as well as telling him that if he didn't admit to lying to them (he misstated that he didn't speak to one person that he ended up having spoken to (i. e. nothing illegal)) they would go after his son.). So yeah, I know how much you enjoy being a fucktard but maybe try not to be one for a little bit (people might actually tolerate your presence even).
That actually makes a lot of sense
Who was implying that he was taking bribes for pardons?
There’s a CNN story. The Justice Department is investigating him.
They're actually investigating him? They've opened an investigation? Or an anonymous source in the Justice department said that they were planning to?
Not sure yet. Haven’t read the whole article. Might just be an anon source.
Given how many retractions they have had to publish, and how many incorrect stories they broke that were highly negative about Trump, I'm extremely skeptical.Sadly, it seems like CNN has decided that if they hear something negative about Trump they should publish it first and ask questions second
Thank you. That’s good to know.
You do realize he's taken a shit load of money as President. To claim he's only taken a dollar is just a flat out lie
I'm not sure which lie you're referencing. But as President he is only taken $1 in salary
Lmao that's hilarious if you actually believe that
I'm glad you're amused. But this would actually be productive if you said something helpful, not giggled at your own intelligence
I mean what's their to say to someone who believe something as unbelievable as a piece of shit like Trump not taking any money as President. It's a job dude, of course he's getting money... its literally insane 2 think he doesn't
Unless... He refused to take a paycheck more than $1 the first year. Which he did. Which is part of public record.Were you not aware?
Yeah no he didn't. I assure you.
Sorry to disappoint, but you're not an authority I trust on this
Oh, this is the golf conversation again, where the federal government spent $140 million on golf trips, much of which went to Trump owned businesses. There's also the bit about where the inauguration funds were spent, that Ivanka was disposed about this week...Carter had to sell his family's peanut farm, in case he managed to increase the price of peanuts as president.
"They're actually investigating him? They've opened an investigation? Or an anonymous source in the Justice department said that they were planning to?"They have been, and still are, investigating someone for connecting political donations to presidential pardons. It is possible that the president isn't in the loop, but at the very least, someone in the administration thinks they can get Trump to pardon someone who doesn't deserve it on the merits."A redacted court order unsealed Tuesday revealed the existence of an investigation into a “bribery-for-pardon” scheme, in which an unnamed defendant allegedly mounted a White House lobbying effort to receive a pardon in exchange for “a substantial political contribution.”"talkingpointsmemo.com/.../court-records-reveal-doj-investigation-into-suspected-bribery-for-pardon-scheme
Doesn't it remove the recipients' fifth amendment right, since they can't self-incriminate?
@goaded yes. For that particular offense only.
And any other potential crimes arising out of the same transaction or occurrence
OK, don't tell Trump, let it be a nice surprise!
I don’t think he can pardon himself. He can pardon anyone else.
Interesting... Even his family and friends 🤔 But I thought pardoning himself sounded off to me
Does the law really say that?
@goaded The law says the President's pardon power is almost unlimited. . . until he uses it to obstruction an investigation.
Yeah, the Flynn and Stone clemencies shouldn't have been allowed, they were in connection with an impeachment.
@goaded You can't overrule the pardon power. You can only investigate and expose it. Again, you see that when it comes to the President, it becomes a problem of politics. The Founding Fathers specifically showed that if people wanted a corrupt President, they can have one.
They're called political donations; it's free speech, dontcha know.
@Gwenhwyfar Your welcome :)

@abc3643 Oh, my goodness! I had no idea. Thank you for the education.
... he's probably more concerned with pardoning himself and his family (despite that being an admission of guilt).
Like Flynn, who confessed, twice, and the pardon confirms he lied to the FBI? Strangely, the pardon doesn't just cover that crime, but any others we don't yet know about.
They can be lol
Who has $400 million in personal debt coming due in the next couple of years.
