As the Trump administration heads for the exits at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Donald Trump is undertaking a pardon spree so corrupt, it has never been attempted by any president before him.
Trump signaled he intends to pardon up to 20 close family members and associates, most of whom are yet to be charged with any crimes
On this week’s Narativ podcast, civil rights attorney Andrew Laufer joins the panel to discuss the legality of Trump’s pardon spree, and whether the pardons will hold up in court. Eric Garland and Lincoln’s Bible also appear.
Among those rumored to be on Trump’s pardon shortlist are his three three adult children Eric, Don, Jr., and Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Also lining up for pardons are the president’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, former campaign manager Stephen Bannon and his disgraced former national security advisor Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. Flynn had his sentence commuted by Trump .
