President Trump should consider pardoning himself and other administrative officials as Democrats “yearn” for his comrades, said Matt Gaetz, R-Fla. Representative for “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday.
According to the two-term congressman, President Trump “everyone should have mercy on administrative officials, Joe Exotic, if necessary.”
Grace should come because “the radical left [has] a desire for blood that will only subside if people who have worked so hard to bring the Trump administration to the American people with political governance, momentum, and efficiency come after it, ”Gaetz said.
He added that he said “the president must exercise this power of grace effectively and robustly.”
A day before Trump officially announced that he would grant pardon to his former national security adviser, Michale Flynn, Gaetz said, “Trump’s president must grant pardon to Michael Flynn.”
Trump could, in theory, have pardoned himself, as the Constitution does not contain a provision to prevent this.

The “persecution of witches” refers to the Russian investigation, which conservatives have cited as an example of abusing the authority of the Ministry of Justice.

Following these revelations, Trump’s Department of Justice has moved the case against him, but has since run into obstacles in court. In August, the DC District Court of Appeals rejected Flynn’s request to force the federal judge to drop his criminal case.
