If President-elect Joe Biden really wants to bring the country together, he ought to pardon President Donald Trump of any and all criminal offenses (and there are numerous) that he could be charged with after leaving workplace– or two says former counsel to U.S. Home Judiciary Committee, Michael Conway.
However those on social media aren’t buyin’ it. “Like hell he will,” Emmy-winner Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted.
In an op-ed Conway wrote for NBC News previously today, he stated, “Trump’s acceptance of a pardon … is an admission that he was guilty of the criminal offenses for which he has actually been pardoned,” adding that “a federal pardon would not get rid of all of Trump’s possible criminal direct exposure” he faces in New York State.
He goes on to say that although such a pardon “would be meant to recover the country and foreclose the possibility of a continuous cycle of retribution after political celebrations change control of the government,’ Conway admits that “pardoning his predecessor will subject Biden to intense, scathing criticism.”
He’s got that. The criticism has been rolling in for days, with Conway’s name trending on Facebook Sunday.
