Donald Trump, the United States president has the power to issue to pardon the Mobs that Attacked US Capitol. History shows presidential pardons have courted controversy from the very beginning.
However, the founding Father’ near-absolute pardon power as a way to soften the edges of inflexible criminal law.
Today, as Americans shift the political fall out of Wednesday’s riotous assault on the very seat of constitutional power. Some experts are wondering if Trump in his final days in power, might issue a blanket pardon for all those who were involved in the fight.
The prospect of more pardons is giving impulsion for pressure in the United States House of Representatives to try to oust Trump from power even before his team ends on Jan 20.
Whenever it comes to federal crimes, the President has extensive pardon powers. but they can’t use that power to stop themselves or others from being removed by congress. Also, they don’t have the power to pardon state crimes.
Donald Trump can erase away any charges in connection with the January 6 incident brought by authorities in Washington D.C. Trump would not be the first president to issue a blanket pardon if he does not offer clemency to the rioters.
Meanwhile, since the November 3rd election, Donald Trump has pardoned several associates. Most including former campaign manager Paul Manafort who was convicted of bank and tax fraud. and some other associates.
If Trump’s presidency ends without begging for mercy to more of them, then it would be a real missed opportunity.

Twitter was his way of communicating and also before holding office. Once he became the president, his tweets became archived presidential records.
Donald Trump went too far and he violated the terms of services by encouraging violence. A mob that went straight to the Capitol to halt an important step in the lawful transfer of power from one administration to the next.
Trump’s thumbs have uttered the pace of news cycles and the activities of congressional reactions and action.
Also, media companies, Twitter, and some other social platforms have been a megaphone to his repeated scheme theories. And false information about the 2020 Presidential election.
Notwithstanding, if the events of January 6 provide good evidence of what four years of angry, confidential messaging can do to encourage a swath of Trump’s followers.
Then swaying back that power can preferably deny any future messages as he holds on to his final days in the White House.
