Giuliani Pal Puts a Price Tag on Presidential Pardons

This could be another late-stage controversy for the Trump administration.

With mere hours left in his first term, President Trump will almost certainly have a few more surprises up his sleeve, some of which we’ll likely see coming.

It is expected that Trump will be issuing a number of pardons in his final days.  Recipients may very well include his family, Rudy Giuliani, and maybe even himself…along with a host of others who are currently vying for the assistance.

But there may be a bit of a snag, as an associate of Rudy Giuliani may have spilled some information that he shouldn’t have.

An associate of Rudy Giuliani told a former CIA officer a presidential pardon was “going to cost $2m”, the New York Times reported on Sunday in the latest bombshell to break across the last, chaotic days of Donald Trump’s presidency.

The report detailed widespread and in some cases lucrative lobbying involving people seeking a pardon as Trump’s time in office winds down. The 45th president, impeached twice, will leave power on Wednesday with the inauguration of Joe Biden.

The former CIA officer John Kiriakou, who was jailed in 2012 for leaking the identity of an operative involved in torture, told the Times he laughed at the remark from the associate of Giuliani, the former New York mayor who as Trump’s personal attorney is reportedly a possible pardon recipient himself.

Kiriakou’s response was somewhat hilarious.

“Two million bucks – are you out of your mind?” Kiriakou reportedly said. “Even if I had two million bucks, I wouldn’t spend it to recover a $700,000 pension.”

The news could make for a rough coupe of days for Trump, who is already facing a Senate impeachment trial over his “incitement” of a crowd of supporters back on January 6th.
