How are people pardoned that haven't been found guilty of anything ,,,,,yet?
Might ask Ford that, if he were still alive.

He pardoned Nixon.
Nixon wasn't guilty??

of what?
The House Judiciary Committee then approved articles of impeachment against Nixon for obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and contempt of Congress. With his complicity in the cover-up made public and his political support completely eroded, Nixon resigned from office on August 9, 1974.
So, it didn't get to a full House vote, he was NOT impeached, and he committed no crime....

again, what crime did he commit that he needed to be pardoned for?
I'm not sure Will it happened long ago but they just said on tv .... the SCOTUS said a pardon is only if you're guilty

You do understand will........
SCOTUS says accepting a pardon is like an admission of guilt.
If you are not guilty, you don't need a pardon.

Nixon was pardoned, but didn't commit a crime.

Why are you ignoring what is, and has been , in history books for close to half a century?

Never mind, don't respond...

This is as critical as getting rid of the electoral college. Here's a letter to the editor with which I largely agree. Can't have a crime syndicate running the government again with potential immunity.

Opinion | Time to Rethink Presidential Pardons?

To the Editor:
As President Trump has issued a pardon to Michael Flynn, and now appears ready to issue numerous other pardons to those who committed crimes (or may have committed crimes) while in service to the president, it is clear that the pardon provision of the Constitution must be amended to prevent presidential administrations from becoming crime or corruption syndicates without consequence.
The pardon power should be amended to prohibit a president from issuing a pardon for any crime committed during the period he or she is in office. This limitation would deter the commission of crimes of corruption on behalf of a president with knowledge that any such acts will be followed by a pardon.
In addition, the amendment should prohibit the president from issuing a self-pardon and prohibit any vice president who comes into the office upon the resignation of the president from issuing a pardon.
Daniel Shapiro
Suffern, N.Y.
It seems very unlikely that SCOTUS would agree that the founders believed a president should have the power to pardon himself. A president could kill his political enemies, then pardon himself. That would put the president above the law during and after his or her presidency. Also, from a linguistic standpoint, pardoning oneself would be absurd because one cannot grant forgiveness to oneself.

Not worried about the electoral college. In fact I like it and you should too.
I like the idea of the proposed change to the presidential pardon provision, but see no need to prevent the vice president upon assuming the presidency from pardoning the outgoing president.
As population growth in our less populated states continues to increase and growth in our most populous states shrinks, the value of the electoral college will slowly disappear. The likelihood of winning the popular vote without winning the electoral college would be so small that people will question why the electoral college is needed. Also, today the differences in the needs of the least populous states and most populous states is slowly closing.

Call me when it disappears, but don't call me from the west coast or east coast.

A slap in your faces
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday began circulating a coronavirus relief proposal whose contents offer so little assistance to the tens of millions of jobless, hungry, and eviction-prone Americans that critics warned the Kentucky Republican is actively working to ensure the U.S. economy remains mired in deep recession as Biden administration takes charge next month.

Described as a "targeted" relief proposal, McConnell's plan is heavily geared toward providing corporations with immunity from coronavirus-related lawsuits; the offer includes a liability shield that Public Citizen's Remington Gregg described as "breathtakingly broad." The Kentucky Republican's plan also contains a 100% tax deduction for business meals.

"As the Covid crisis only grows more deadly, this disgraceful proposal puts the lives of everyday Americans at even greater risk."
—Wenonah Hauter, Food & Water Action

Meanwhile, McConnell's proposed relief measure does not include a boost to federal unemployment insurance, instead calling for a mere one-month extension of existing programs and stricter requirements for applicants in the name of preventing "fraud." The Republican's proposal also omits another round of direct stimulus payments and aid to cash-strapped state and local governments.

"Leave it to Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump to propose a bill that creates tax write-offs for fancy lunches and gives the middle finger to working families and 20 million unemployed Americans," said Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.). "This is not a serious proposal, it is a slap in the face to people who need help."

In the months ahead of the November election and in the weeks since, analysts have cautioned that if McConnell maintains his stranglehold on the Senate, the Kentucky Republican could attempt to impose devastating economic austerity with the goal of undermining Biden's presidency and gaining GOP seats in 2022 and beyond. McConnell's new relief proposal only bolstered those concerns.

"McConnell is making it pretty clear that if Dems don't win the Georgia Senate races, he will cripple the American economy, hoping it will let the GOP win the midterm," tweeted journalist Jon Walker.

HuffPost's Zach Carter offered a similar assessment:

eddiew37 I just had an extensive medical physical just two (2) weeks ago and you can rest assured I don't have COPD... If I did, it more than likely would be because I smoked Camel Filters for over 40 years... No signs of COPD though...

Good news for you though... Just this week there is a test for a malady you may be afflicted with...

First Alzheimer's blood test now on the market, without FDA approval - CBS News
Stop your FN bullshit Trying to do you a favor I smoked 50 years and did a joint or 2 also Had check ups ,X rays, breathing tests , and been living with COPD the last 10 15 years Get x rays
