HOW can you pardon anyone before they have been charged with anything????

I can't imagine how that would be legal.

The president would be the pardon of Nixon by Ford. Nixion had not been charged or convicted of anything at the time.

I wounder if Congress could call all of those pardoned and ask them, under oath, to fess up? They could not invoke the 5th amendment as they would have no criminal liability.

they shouldnt wait for his reign to end they should put them all in front of a judge with a jury of we the people and see what happens.We the people, have had enough!everything that has happened in this country within the past eight years, has been the doings of our government, our own government! why should they have the priveledge of pardoning themselves?! can we do that?is it even legal for a president to pardon himself? something's not right here! I say charge them for what they've done and punish them accordingly, as far as I know, the last time I checked, treason is punishable by death!? Hanging?

One more thing, if you're going to post a comment on a blog, have the balls to at least sign it with a screen name. If you show them that you are afraid,they will use that fear against you.

I have yet to see anyone in Congress with the guts or the integrity to take on this unelected President/Dictator. Without that, how can these unconstitutional acts and the perpetrators be brought before justice? It's time for a government overhaul and elect those willing to do do the right thing, then move on for the next group. The forefathers of this country never saw lawmaking as a career. Congress won't police themselves, time to give them the boot and bring in those with independent ideas and loyalty to the citizens, not their political party and rich supporters.

I would laugh about this, but my cynicism levels are way too high right now.

We should be so fortunate that Shrubya leaves in so quiet a fashion. I'm still not so sure that he won't call for a mulligan on his second term and decide to go not so gently into that good night.

Of course he will pardon himself and everyone he's ever heard of. His ass is grass, he knows it, and the body charged with his oversight has left the building (I'm jumbling metaphors, and I apologize).

The best justice we'll be left with may simply be a documentary of what did happen. Any cherry on top will come from a foreign tribunal, or from good old Spain whose constitutional declaration of "universal jurisdiction" trumps us all. Today, I am a Spaniard.

Douches, I will address your comments seriatim. Douche #1: You can pardon someone before they've been charged, after they've been convicted, even when they're dead. Your imagination sucks.

Douche #2: It's "precedent" not "president". In spite of your execrable spelling ("wounder"?) good call on what you presumably mean to be a Congressional subpoena scenario. That's when the memory problems act up.

Douche #3: "is it even legal for a president to pardon himself?" Yes it is. You don't know much, do you?

To pardon is to admit wrong doing..and do these people ever admit they have done anything wrong? Up until now I haven't seen any evidence of that. This one will be interesting to watch.

I've read that pardons can't be issued if an investigation is ongoing. That's why it vitally important to investigate to determine if an impeachment is required. Bush would never be convicted but a goodly number of his thugs would face imprisonment.
