Trump Could Pardon Himself And Twenty Associates Before Leaving Office


Politico reports that President Donald Trump is considering pardoning as many as 20 close associates before he leaves office in January. Who would he pardon? According to Business insider they include his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, as well as his three eldest children, as The New York Times previously reported. However, the president is said to be concerned about whether the preemptive pardons could look like a public admission of guilt. Trump and his allies will face a slew of civil and criminal investigations on a federal and state level once he leaves office in January. The pardon power does not apply to state offenses.

He may also pardon other associates preemptively, even if they haven't been charged with any crimes. Trump's allies in Congress and conservative media have said the President should pardon himself.
