Only federal crimes AFAIK.
That's helps a lot, thanks Mac.

With that, this isn't happening:

I think a presidential pardon can also be applied to federal crimes where no charges yet exist.

If the Republicans do want to go the pardon route, the real challenge is going to be figuring out that laundry list of potentially indictable offenses. I mean, it'll be like picking up the twigs after a hurricane.

To be honest, I am pretty bored by talk of Trump's post-presidency and his refusal to concede and blah. I am already past the Trump years which I would call America 'lost weekend'. He is going to leave office on a whimper instead of a bang. I am more interested in what Biden can do regarding legislation. I am really interested in his student loan relief for teachers idea. I want to hear him talk about that and get my parents a vaccine before they fucking die than worry about what Trump is up to.

I feel you. I'm pretty tired of it myself. Mostly because the sane people are already past it, leaving the conversation to the, well...colourful characters. I love getting them riled up once in a while, but I've had my fun and now it's just sort of sad. And honestly, it's in bad taste on my part.

I said this before but I am not interested in fraternity with the Trump supporters unless they apologize and amend for their actions. I am way past moderation and accommodation towards the right. I really couldn't care any less about what they want. I still mostly read conservative sources and they have displayed no behavior to change my feeling towards them.

We've got years of Republican obstructionism ahead of us. McConnell would sacrifice every one of us to reincarnate Lord Voldemort if it meant one petty victory for the Republican party.

Isn't that what Ford did for Nixon? Blanket-pardon for everything related to the wire tap?

so biden is nearing 80 million votes in all.

meanwhile trump is still trotting out rudy giuliani to do his 'fifth element villain' routine, and moaning on twitter.

250k americans have died and trump probably hasn't even attended a meeting about it in the last 4 months. his ego is at stake.

considering trump lorded over hillary with his 'landslide' using the exact same electoral college numbers, and seeing as biden is now smashing records for votes, can we stop calling this a 'close-run thing'? he has won handily and decisively.

i'm really looking forward to the next 4 years being free of the 'you don't understand the real world' rhetoric. the majority chunk of america's pie of the Real voted for joe biden.

i can’t work out if he’s genuinely going senile or if he’s just cynically in it for the $20,000 per diem retainer. either way, he’s not doing any good for trump’s permanently shredded credibility. he looks indistinguishable from the class of crooks and mob lawyers that trump has surrounded himself with all his life.

quite a turnaround from the ‘heroic’ public attorney who tackled the families.

Which in turn reminds me of a line from Pineapple Express- "youre going to move to college and get into Godspeed You! Black Emperor and the Shins and become a lesbian"
