Well boy do I find myself in a weird spot. It would seem to me that there was a reasonable likelihood of voter fraud in the 2020 election. (There always is some, but I mean enough to shift the result in the electoral college.) I also think Trump is a clownish grifter who needs to go. I also thing the LARP-de-ta (as I call it) was bad but anyone calling it a "coup" is a liar a moron or both. I should note, that sums up 100 percent of the people call it a "coup."
Given this wasn't a coup and that Trump and company riled up the crowd that got out of hand and turned into a riot (and some may have planned to rush the capital before), I don't think Rudy Guilliani and company need to be pardoned. But who knows? With Patriot Act 2.0 looming (thanks "liberals") they may just throw out every convention there is and charge everyone Trump ever knew.
But worry not, Trump is handing out pardons... for a fee that is.
An associate of Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, told a former CIA officer seeking a presidential pardon that Giuliani could help arrange one for $2 million, The New York Times reported Sunday.
If true, that's one of the most pathetic things I've ever heard (as well as corrupt, obviously).
But Trump's pardons make it plausible. While I think Flynn deserved a pardon, that's about the only one I am in favor of. Others who obviously deserve pardons, like Snowden and Assange, are instead persecuted. On the other hand, the Blackwater murderers and the corrupt father of his son-in-law get bullshit pardons.
The only defense of Donald is how insane the Left is right now. And, of course, the only defense of the Left is how much of a grifting asshole Donald is. What a wonderful political environment we live in. Luckily, the capital right now just screams "we live in a free country!"
