Should Trump consider pardons?
I believe that President Trump would be well served to offer presidential pardons to all those criminally involved in what has be dubbed “the Russia hoax.”
Such a pardon would be dependent on six conditions: 1) The perpetrators acknowledge guilt 2) They accept a sentence 3) They decline appeals 4) They go public with all information 5) They appear before a tribunal, either congressional or grand jury, and 6) They testify against others.
The necessity for this is obvious, as the charges against Mr. Trump will be repeated ad nauseam until the elections next year.
Pardons will bring everything to a head quickly if the president offers a window for them — say, 90 days.
Furthermore, we may find out about things still hidden or information known only by people yet to be identified. Such people might well fear a charge of conspiracy for withholding knowledge of criminal activity, and so be glad to come forward without jeopardy.
