/----/ I don't think he can. But that is just a guess. Here are 15 expert opinions:Can he pardon himself?/-----/ "when he orders those investigating those close to him to “drop it” Except the President never said that. What he said was: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go." That was not an order. As Chief Law Enforcement Agent of the US, the president can interject himself into any case.You’re hilarious. Nobody would have any problem with him fulfilling a subpoena. Its when he orders those investigating those close to him to “drop it” then fires them when they don’t…thats when most thinking people have issues. If you were a thinking person, you’d have one too.You're not answering the question. I didn't ask why Trump is not ordering... I asked why Rosenstein is not giving documents that were ordered from Congress.So…the AG doesn’t order his staff to do anything…ever. Is that the insanity you and cell block are now peddling? Really?You're screeching right now.
By the way, you still haven't answered the question from the first page: " Why Rosenstien doesn't want to hand over requested documents to Congress, the body that has constitutional oversight over DOJ?"
You’re all day stupid.
As for the question…again Trump could order the AG/Deputy AG to produce documents immediately. It would seem that he doesn’t want them out there.
Trump could, but he's not doing it because of screeches such as yourself. If you, as non factor, can screech so much, imagine those screeches in Congress.
Congress have authority and is using that authority to demand documents. Again, why Rosenstein is refusing to hand out requested documents to Congress?
As for your obsession with this question…most subordinates do what their boss tells them to when it’s ethical, legal, or not dangerous. That RR hasn’t done it seems to indicate that the blob ordered him not to.
President Trump says he can pardon himself. We asked 15 experts if that's legal.
As it turns out, this is something of a legal gray area. The overwhelming consensus was that Trump could make a plausible legal argument that his pardoning powers extend to himself, mostly because the Constitution isn’t clear about this — and, frankly, because this is just not a situation the framers expected.
All the experts agreed about one other fact: Even if Trump does pardon himself, that would not shield him from impeachment hearings. And most believe if he did make a move like this, it would be both an admission of guilt and a potential constitutional crisis.
