      Above the law - King Donald.

      Okay. Now the USA really has abandoned the idea of being a republic. You have a King who is above the law. Donald (the first of that name) is above the law, he can self-pardon to his heart's content.

      Theoretically. However, the House of Congress would impeach him and the Senate would put him on trial and remove him from office. Once that happened he would no longer be President and would have no power of the pardon.
      You have to love the checks and balances the founding fathers put into the US Constitution.

      What's to stop him going out and shooting somebody, Hilary Clinton for example, and then pardoning himself of the crime. Impeaching and removing him from office will not reverse the murder. He's your king. Better get used to bowing and kneeling before him.

      That's a stupid scenario that reveals more about your prejudice than anything else.

      Just like you Australians bow and kneel before HM Queen Elizabeth II, right?
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Donald can pardon himself, and Bill Clinton supports #MeToo, but doesn't need to apologize to Monica Lewinski - What's next on the eye-roll list?

      I hear that he believes some rather strange things, but I imagine the belief are for the sake of votes more than anything else.
