NY AG: Trump Will Resign and Ask Mike Pence to Pardon Him
The claim was bold, to say the least.
There has been no shortage of wild conspiracy theories circulating around the Donald Trump presidency, that’s undeniable, but the latest bizarre claims may just be the most significant yet…and from a source not known for their whimsy.
With Trump’s chances at remaining in office slimming in these final days of 2020, there are concerns among his supporters that the President could face several different legal challenges the moment he leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The most serious of these litigious pitfalls comes to us from the Southern District of New York, and quite possibly from the Empire State Attorney General Letitia James.
James had a bold prediction this week regarding how Trump may look to avoid such hassle.
New York state’s attorney general made a stunning prediction on The View Tuesday.
While discussing the post-Jan. 20 legal prospects of President Donald Trump, New York AG Letitia James — who is currently pursuing a civil investigation against the president, while Manhattan’s district attorney has a criminal investigation ongoing — said she believes the commander in chief will take a stunning preemptive measure to try to cut future criminal charges off at the pass.
“The vast majority of legal scholars have indicated that he cannot pardon himself,” James said. “What he could do is step down and allow … Vice President [Mike] Pence, to pardon him. I suspect that he will pardon his family members, his children, his son-in-law, and individuals in his administration as well as some of his close associates. And then I suspect, at some point in time, he will step down and allow the vice president to pardon him.”
But James made sure to mention that a presidential pardon would not protect Trump from New York’s investigations, seeing as the power of that particular pardon does not extend to state jurisdictions.
