anyone who believes this story is clueless the number of stories with suspected, anonymous, may, could or another words that leave open the possibility it's not true that "reporters" have used in the past 4 yrs is truly sickening

I'm so over the criminals in the WH. It blows my mind that the president can literally murder someone and would never be prosecuted, because WE DON'T PUNISH PRESIDENTS, or their sycophants, in the US.

So I read through all the linked articles, and none of them dained to specified what it actually is in their judgement that Trump did wrong and could potentially be prosecuted for. The closest any got was the dailymail who made a sole reference to the “Mueller report” in its headline but didn’t elaborate at any point; nor explained how a report that didn’t present evidence of a crime could be used as a basis for a prosecution. Surely a prerequisite of considering to grant a pardon is that there actually be something to pardon.

POLITICS US probing potential bribery, lobbying scheme for pardon Updated 31 minutes ago SHARE: EMBED <>MORE VIDEOS The DOJ is looking into allegations that lobbyists may have tried to bribe White House officials or a related political committee in exchange for a presidential pardon. WASHINGTON -- The Justice Department is investigating whether there was a secret scheme to lobby White House officials for a pardon as well as a related plot to offer a hefty political contribution in exchange for clemency, according to a court document unsealed Tuesday. Most of the information in the 18-page court order is redacted, including the identity of the people whom prosecutors are investigating and whom the proposed pardon might be intended for. SEE ALSO: AG Barr: No evidence of fraud that'd change election outcome ABC News Political Director Rick Klein joins us to discuss the electoral college process and other key events between Election Day and Inauguration Day in January. But the document from August does reveal that certain individuals are suspected of having acted to secretly lobby White House officials to secure a pardon or sentence commutation and that, in a related scheme, a substantial political contribution was floated in exchange for a pardon or "reprieve of sentence." A Justice Department official said Tuesday night that no government official was or is a subject or target of the investigation. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. The existence of the investigation, first reported by CNN, was revealed in a court order from U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell, the chief judge of Washington's federal court. In it, she granted investigators access to certain email communications connected to the alleged schemes that she said was not protected by attorney-client privilege. The investigative team will be able to use that material to confront any subject or target of the investigation, the judge wrote. The order was dated Aug. 28, and prosecutors had sought to keep it private because they said it identifies people not charged by a grand jury. But on Tuesday, Howell unsealed select portions of that document while redacting from view any personally identifiable information. As part of the investigation, more than 50 devices, including laptops and iPads, have been seized, according to the document. Pardons are common at the end of a president's tenure and are occasionally politically fraught affairs as some convicted felons look to leverage connections inside the White House to secure clemency. Last week, President Donald Trump announced that he had pardoned his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, even as a federal judge was weighing a Justice Department request to dismiss the case.
