WATCH: Possibility of Trump pardoning himself sparks GOP pushback

Featured, Politics
New talk of President Trump possibly pardoning himself drew pushback from Republicans on the Sunday show circuit this week. Both congressional Republicans and the president's attorney Rudy Giuliani urged caution that a self-issued pardon could be politically problematic for Trump. But Giuliani said the president “probably” has the power to give himself a pardon even though doing so would prove to be difficult. “I think the political ramifications of that would be tough. Pardoning other people is one thing. Pardoning yourself is another,” Giuliani told ABC’s “This Week.” “Other presidents have pardoned people in circumstances like this, both in their administration and sometimes the next president, even of a different party will come along and pardon,” he continued.

Yet another GOP governor has jumped aboard the gun-grabbing bandwagon, this time in Vermont. According to The Washington Times, Republican Gov. Phil Scott signed a suite of bills Wednesday that made it easier for the state to seize guns from individuals the state has determined pose a threat. The bills also made the minimum age to buy a gun 21 in the state and banned high-capacity magazines.

The Democratic National Committee entered the midterm elections year "dead broke," with a paltry $400,000 in party coffers, according to federal records. The committee finished 2017 with roughly $6.5 million in available cash and about $6.1 million in debt, according to recently released Federal Election Commission filings. That leaves a balance of just $422,582 to start a year that will culminate in midterm elections, in which Democrats are hoping to recapture a majority in the House. The DNC’s fundraising challenges have been well known since shortly after the 2016 elections, when President Trump defeated front-running Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The committee has been rocked by turmoil, including the resignation of chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz amid leaked emails some sa

Media bias Oh look, the media is hating on Christians again. How original. Imagine if the media spent even a tenth of the amount of time trashing Muslims as it does trashing Christians. Of course that will never happen because Christians aren’t known for tossing people off of buildings if you disagree with them. The worst they might do is PRAY FOR YOU … the HORROR! Sopan Deb of the New York Times tweeted the following: Don’cha love it when the media pretends Christians hate poor people? Of course they desperately need to frame the Right (and especially mean ol’ Christians) in this way because their BS progressive agenda is falling down around them. Of course he didn’t say that and the passage doesn’t say that EITHER, but they need to pretend it does to pu
