Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FBN’s ‘Making Money With Charles Payne’ To Discuss Presidential Pardon
According to Dhillon:
I agree with the president’s comments, I won’t call it analysis, but the unconstitutionality goes to the separation of powers issue and indeed many scholars do agree with that. Beyond that, many scholars have pointed out that if it were constitutional, the investigation is currently constituted exceeds the scope of the statute that authorizes it so, then going to the issue of pardon, I agree with the president’s comments that why would he pardon himself if he is not guilty and I think frankly that’s where the focus should be. I think it’s premature and probably not a great idea to be talking about pardons when, although it’s his power to do so, it will be seized upon by Democrats to initiate impeachment proceedings and so really the focus should be is this constitutional, and if it is constitutional, do the facts support the investigation and if so, then we go to pardon and that’s the last ditch scenario.
Politically, obviously the president is very smart and he’s clearly made the calculation that it’s necessary to come out and do this. Personally, I think even if the president were to be impeached and then win, which I think he would, it’s divisive. Our country needs to be focusing on really moving forward with the president’s agenda and not letting the Democrats run out the clock and distract us with this garbage and so I really hope that we focus on ending this investigation which is I think meritless in the first place and moving on. This talk of pardon is interesting and tantalizing, but hopefully will never come to pass.
