We need a new bill that should be made into law saying that any pardons that were issued by a President who is currently serving time in prison, will be overturned. A federal pardon in the United States is the action of the President of the United States that completely sets aside the punishment for a federal crime. Under the Constitution, the president’s clemency power extends to all federal criminal offenses. This presidential privilege is being abused by Trump, as this power was intended to free a wrongly accused person, but it has now become a get out of jail free for doing favors for Trump, or for just knowing Trump. I hope that Trump ends up in jail and the criminals that he has pardoned, will all be sent back to prison.
