Should the sham charges against Donald Trump and other Republicans prove effective, it will not be because of the left. It will be because so-called conservatives failed to respond to these charges accordingly. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is currently running for reelection in Texas, chastised the unsuccessful primary rivals to Trump for how they refused to pledge to use the pardon power when asked at a debate. The Obama-appointed federal judge in D.C. absurdly set the trial date for the prosecution there against Trump for the day before the Super Tuesday primary in early March. Trump immediately vowed to appeal and the Supreme Court will likely shut down this prosecution of Trump because it interferes with American voters selecting our next president.
The phrase the “United States” is chanted 71 times in the recent indictment of 19 Republicans in Atlanta. It begins by falsely stating that “Trump and the other Defendants charged in this Indictment refused to accept that Trump lost, and they knowingly and willfully joined a conspiracy to unlawfully change the outcome of the election in favor of Trump.”
This sham Fulton County indictment asserts offenses against the United States within the meaning of the Pardon Clause. Of course a president who understands his constitutional power can pardon everyone falsely charged in this politicized persecution. If timid Republican governors and legislators fail to stop political prosecutions then a conservative president will be needed to single handedly overcome this and right the wrong that these people have suffered.
Similarly, we need a president who is strong enough to use his pardon power to free the many Americans who have been unjustly imprisoned in a Washington, D.C. gulag for peacefully protesting on January 6. For nearly three years, these men and women have languished in prison while their families struggle to make ends meet. They will never receive justice from the overwhelmingly left-leaning juries in D.C., so a presidential pardon is the appropriate response to ensure that justice is restored. The only question is whether Americans will elect a president strong enough to get the job done.
