President Trump may have the constitutional power to pardon himself according to the eminent attorney Rudolph Guliani. The question arises therefore; will the President pardon himself and when would he execute the pardon?
There is little doubt that most politicians and criminals would pardon themselves of anything and everything they could. If a President does pardon himself voters can develop a bias against him and prejudge him, her or whatever at the next election, and vote for an opponent.
If Special Investigator Mueller charges the President with criminal activity able to meet the Democrat Party’s high expectations the President can just pardon himself on reading the indictment. So many people would be disappointed though since they have high expectations for the President to be completely above the fray and of impeccably outstanding character.
