Former Federal Prosecutor Fears Trump Could Pardon Capitol Rioters - HuffPo

A former assistant U.S. attorney raised the unnerving possibility that Donald Trump could pardon his supporters who violently stormed the Capitol on Wednesday.

Five people, including a police officer, died related to the attack.

The chance of a Trump pardon -- including for himself -- is particularly jarring in this case because the president been accused of inciting the violence.

If he pardons people who directly attacked the democratic process, committing crimes while they were doing it, "how much more egregious, unjust, unfair, inappropriate does a presidential pardon get?" former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said Friday on NBC 4 in Washington.
