Trump has discussed pardoning himself in recent weeks: report

/ / News

President Donald Trump has suggested to aides he wants to pardon himself in the final days of his presidency, the New York Times reported Thursday, citing two people with knowledge of the discussions. The Times said Trump since Election Day has told advisers that he is considering giving himself a pardon and, in other instances, asked whether he should and what the impact would be on him legally and politically. But it isn’t clear whether he has broached the topic since he incited his supporters on Wednesday to storm the Capitol in a mob attack, the Times said.
