As always Trump tries to find a way to weasel out of everything and discredit the news. His attorney has done that for him in denying the recent reports that they are looking into pardoning Trump, his family, and his aides.
‘Not On The Table’
Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, released a statement saying “Pardons are not being discussed and are not on the table.” The Washington Post report that originally reported on the subject says Trump “asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe, according to one of the people. A second person said Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves.”
If two people have come out saying the accusations are true, then how can you deny it, Sekulow? Another adviser also said that the president expressed interest in understanding the reach of his pardon authority as well as the limits of Mueller’s investigation. When it comes to investigations, there are no limits. That’s the point of investigations is to dig deep and find the truth no matter the cost. Especially when it comes to a rigged election conspired by another country.
This comes after the recent news of Trump’s legal team being shuffled around. Marc Kasowitz is no longer Trump’s personal attorney, and his spokesman Mark Corallo has resigned. Well, that’s what happens when you threaten a stranger for no reason. Major Garett, the CBS News Cheif White House correspondent, has reported that Trump attorneys have also been seeking ways to fight back against Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s finances. He has also confirmed that Mueller is investigating the business dealing of Paul Manafort. Manafort was $17 million in debt to pro-Russia interests before joining the Trump campaign.
All in all, Russia is heavily involved in our government and Trump’s associates. Now it’s just a ticking time bomb waiting to explode.
