The president of the United States is authorized by the U.S. Constitution to grant a pardon for a federal crime. Convictions of state crimes, such as those that Trump faces in Georgia and New York, are not pardonable by a president.
A president probably cannot pardon himself. It's a complicated issue that would keep lawyers and constitutional scholars busy.
(The Hill)Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said Thursday that if elected president, he will consider pardoning all the Jan. 6 defendants — including former President Trump — on his first day in office.
“On day one, I will have folks that will get together and look at all these cases, who people are victims of weaponization or political targeting, and we will be aggressive in issuing pardons,” DeSantis said on “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show” podcast when asked about whether he will consider pardoning Jan. 6 defendants, including Trump, who is currently facing a federal investigation over his role on Jan. 6.
