Can they be pardoned? The crimes they are accused of are part of the impeachment, and their statements that they went into the Capitol because Trump told them to support conviction under the impeachment.

What's to stop a president from just pardoning all his/her co-conspirators as a reward for their silence?
 
2021-01-16 12:10:04 PM  
She's finding out.

"Personal responsibility" ...

Also, I like how these assholes are all, "I was just following the president! He TOLD us to do it!" Yet there are people on TV every day saying, "He didn't instigate this shiat! He shouldn't be impeached!"

Notice how I didn't say I was surprised, so ...

I'd like to explain to her the short, medium and full versions of her situation.

In short, you're f$cked.

To elaborate, the President doesn't give a flying f$ck about you, he will betray you and you are f$cked.

Your full problem is that Trump wants to run for office again in 2024, his pardon power expires before the Senate gets to vote on stopping him, if he pardons you by Wednesday, he increases the chance of the Senate punishing him, he doesn't give a f$ck about you, he will betray you and you are f$cked.

"I was just following orders" worked out so well for the people on trial at Nuremberg...
I wonder what could go wrong?

It would be REALLY GREAT if the Dems used all these quotes in the impeachment trial ...
 
2021-01-16 12:28:53 PM  
Actually, wait ...

It would be BETTER if the Dems called these scrotum suckers to testify during the impeachment trial, then watch them squirm and, hopefully, lie. That's when BLAMMO you drop quotes like this and be all, "You lying then, or you lying NOW?!"

They could reasonably call Representatives or Senators as witnesses

Nah. Dont give them a chance to walk it back.  Just create a montage, and roll the tape.

Here's what I found chilling.  These people are dumb, but not THAT dumb. Theres no way they selfied themselves breaking into the Capitol, screaming for the blood of elected officials, without realizing the implications.

They did this knowing that if the US government survived the riot, they'd be farked.  The only logical conclusion is that they fully intended to end Congress as an independent branch, destroy the government's power to punish them, and they believed they'd succeed.  They thought their actions would make Trump an autocrat ruling over a neutered legislature, and he'd reward them accordingly.

In other words, it happened here.

She's obviously lying. Anyone who says they were a Trump supporter at the Capitol building was Anfita. Everyone knows that by now of course.

Don't let Anfita control the narrative!

/this is what the Trumpers actually believe

Actually he can't, given the charges he was impeached for.
 
2021-01-16 12:54:53 PM  
I don't know how Trump's base is going to react if Trump does pardoned all of these so-called antifa terrorists that stormed the Capitol building.  For a week, RWNJ have been screaming that antifa did this attack.  If Trump does pardoned these people, then the MAGA crowd has to either own-up to this attack, or call out Trump as a traitor for pardoning antifa members.  It is one or the other.
 
2021-01-16 1:13:21 PM  
Why ask for a pardon if you don't think you've done anything wrong?

I don't think they thought their cunning plan through very far. I also feel most were delusional, not that I'm excusing their sedition. They were gullible and bought into lies they were hungry to accept. The Venn Diagram between conspiracy nutters and most of these traitors would be a circle. Like all conspiracy nutters, they are poorly educated and believe they have inside information that makes them smarter than people who live in reality.

I don't know about the legalities of whether he can or can't, I just mean that he wouldn't if he could because not only would he have no reason to but it would implicate him even further.

To a trial.

And prison, or execution.

It's up to a judge.

The President said "ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.". Turned out, all I could do for my country was blow up a small piece of it.
 
2021-01-16 2:42:12 PM  
"...every person is going to be arrested that was there, so I think everyone deserves a pardon,"

Glad she wasn't at Nuremberg.
 
2021-01-16 2:42:33 PM  
"And if the news doesn't stop lying about us we're going to come after their studios next."

So their next target will be the conservative media labeling them as antifas? If only.
 
2021-01-16 2:42:47 PM  
That's some white privilege right there.
 
2021-01-16 2:43:07 PM  
It seems to me that all of these folks need to be brought back to Washington for the impeachment hearings and testify under oath: "The President told me to do it."

He can't use his power to pardon to keep someone from being impeached. I think that's what you're imagining. Yes, the power to pardon co-conspirators and accomplices is one of the reasons people didn't want there to be a power to pardon invested in one person.
 
2021-01-16 2:43:52 PM  
Wouldn't it be more entitled if she wanted a pardon w/o committing a crime? At least she put in the work.
 
2021-01-16 2:45:00 PM  
Oh, sweetheart.

You're name's not Donald Trump, so why should he give a fark about you?

Ryan, who took a private plane to Washington D.C. on the day of the riot...
and:
I just want people to know I'm a normal person.

Yin and Yang delusional
 
2021-01-16 2:47:56 PM  
Wait 'til she discovers that a presidential pardon means exactly dick to the D.C. courts.

The argument here isn't whether she's going to jail - it's simply for how long.
 
2021-01-16 2:48:41 PM  
See, I would have done the same.  I TRULY believed Obama would win re-election. Let's say election night came around and he lost (it HAD TO BE FRAUD, RIGHT?)
If my favorite media and Obama HIMSELF went on TV and told me that there was "Super-fraud" and resist, and later he told me to "walk over there and take your government back", I would have.

Best start crapping in one hand because Trump don't pardon failed insurrectionists or people who didn't go to bat for him in court

Trump's not going to pardon anyone.  If things could be done my way, he'd be driven home to Mar-A-Lago by David Duke in an old Ford Fiesta.

Not being allowed to hasn't stopped Trump so far. If he wants to he will and let the courts sort it out.

It sounds like she may be kind of farked.
 
2021-01-16 2:50:46 PM  
I would love to know how she felt how the BLM protestors should have been treated. I can take a wild guess about it and she should get the same punishment as she wanted for people that were protesting police brutality.
 
2021-01-16 2:50:57 PM  
This seems like it can be used as an admission of guilt.
