Donald Trump & # 39; wants to forgive himself, his children and rappers & # 39;


Amid a sudden focus on ways to potentially remove Donald Trump from office, the president has begun making a list of people to be pardoned in his final days – with him topping the list.

The New York Times reported that Trump spoke with his advisors about the possibility of forgiving himself in the days leading up to his departure from office.

It is unclear whether such self-forgiveness would stand on trial. Richard Nixon was pardoned by President Gerald Ford when he stepped down to Watergate.

Trump has also considered pardons for family members Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner. He's also considering one for personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who spoke to the rally crowd on Wednesday, urging "trial by fight".

Trump's list also includes some celebrity rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, Bloomberg reported. Black was serving time in prison on gun charges. Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., whose stage name is Lil Wayne, was serving time on gun charges.

President Donald Trump has spoken about the possibility of granting himself a pardon, pardoning family members and close associates, and a pair of rappers in his final days in office

Trump has told advisors since election day that he was considering the idea of ​​self-pardon, despite giving pardons to political supporters such as former National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn, who withdrew his guilty pledge of lying to the FBI, the Russia- Probe.

Trump tweeted that he has the power to forgive himself, but said he doesn't need one. The U.S. attorney in DC said Thursday that the office would investigate those who instigated the rioters who stormed the Capitol, not just the vandals themselves.

The Biden government would be faced with the question of whether to honor the pardon or blame a former president, and federal judges would need to clarify its validity.

Trump has also considered pardons for family members Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner. He's also considering one for personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who spoke to the rally crowd on Wednesday, urging "trial by fight".

The talks preceded the events on Monday and also before Trump called the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2. She urged to find 11,780 votes that would make him the winner there in a call to the Washington Post.

This call could bring legal exposure for a possible violation of laws to meddle in an election. State officials have said they are looking into it. Trump could only forgive himself for federal crimes.
