absolutely, King Donald. The rw called Barack Obama an imperial president because he issued a few executive orders

Huffpost: President Donald Trump boasted about his “absolute right” to pardon himself in the Russia probe on Monday one day after Rudy Giuliani, one of his lawyers, raised the prospect.

“Numerous legal scholars” have pointed out that Trump holds the constitutional authority to a self-pardon, he tweeted. “But why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?”

His comments echoed Giuliani’s, who said Sunday that a self-pardon was out of the cards and could lead to impeachment — but Trump could do it if he wanted to. 

“He has no intention of pardoning himself, but he probably — not to say he can’t,” Giuliani told ABC’s “This Week.”

This is another strawman argument to try and alleviate the depression on the left over the utter failure of their attempts to destroy Trump in the failed spygate scandal. It follows the "Trump will fire Mueller" strawman.

Trump will destroy himself, he does not need any help, and he will take the wingnut repubs down with him.  They lied about meetings with Russians, they were trying to set up illegal back channel communications with Putin, and they had a meeting about Russia providing dirt on Hillary and then they lied about it.  That is collusion spelled with the big C.

Mueller told trump's so called crack legal team what they have on trump and company, trumps tweets up a storm.... Nixon asks Justice dept if he can pardon himself, DOJ says no, Nixon resigns thee days later.

Stop playing dumb, it has been splashed all over the media and trump  lying his ass off about it.  But trump is now on record admitting to the meeting and also writing the lies about it that was included in the press release.  Little trump also lied to Congress about it.  

"Back channel?? Whats wrong with a phone call?"

Despite their insistence that there was “no collusion” with the Kremlin, Trump associates had plenty of secretive interactions with Russians. The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that a meeting in the Seychelles days before Donald Trump’s inauguration was an effort to set up a back channel between the Kremlin and the incoming administration. As you may recall, Jared Kushner previously admitted that he discussed the possibility of communicating privately with Moscow during the transition

They had a meeting and provided dirt on Hillary? Really? When was that? Who was there?

Russian Lawyer Says Trump Jr. Offered Her a Deal: Hillary Dirt for a Change to U.S. Law

In an interview with Bloomberg, Natalia Veselnitskaya gave details for the first time of what passed between her and Trump Jr. in a meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan on June 9th last year. The meeting was also attended by Paul Manafort (at the time, Donald Trump senior’s campaign manager) and Jared Kushner, the future president’s son-in-law and senior advisor.

Veselnitskaya had engineered the meeting by offering proof that Democratic donors had evaded U.S. taxes. In return, by her own account, she was trying to lobby for changes to the so-called 2012 Magnitsky Law that imposed travel bans and sanctions on Russian officials accused of conspiring in the murder of an accountant, Sergey Magnitsky, who had accused officials of corruption.

Everyone knows all about the election, the Russians, the hacking, the meeting, the collusion and the lies about it.  The only question is will trump get away with it.

"Russian Lawyer Says Trump Jr. Offered Her a Deal: Hillary Dirt for a Change to U.S. Law"

You do know who that Russian Lawyer is don't you?

How did she get into the country after repeatedly having previous Visa requests denied?

"The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya occurred during a critical period. At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.

But hours before the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016, Fusion co-founder and ex-Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson was with Veselnitskaya in a Manhattan federal courtroom, a confidential source told Fox News. Court records reviewed by Fox News, email correspondence and published reports corroborate the pair’s presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting.

Simpson’s presence with Veselnitskaya during this critical week in June -- together with revelations about Fusion’s simultaneous financial ties to the DNC, Clinton campaign and Russian interests -- raise new questions about the company’s role in the 2016 election."

BTW, did he accept the offer?

"You do know who that Russian Lawyer is don't you?"

You do know that fox news is not a reliable source don't you, and that a more appropriate moniker would be fox lies.  

But back to the subject at hand, Natalia Veselnitskaya.  She is a Russian political operative, informant, working for a top Kremlin official, Yuri Y. Chaika, the prosecutor general.  She denied this for some time but has finally come clean and is now on record admitting it.
