: As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (and others) continues into the mid-terms.

: Jesse Watters "The only thing Trump obstructed was Hillary getting to the White House." So true.
