    Donald Trump's accusations may turn out to be correct. There really does seem to be a lot of fraud – but it's all within his own organization.

    Donald Trump doesn't expect his cabinet members, aides, advisers and attorneys to be loyal to the United States of America. No, he expects – and demands – that they all show 100% loyalty to him and him only. If they fail to do so, he fires them or demotes them. Michael Flynn lied to protect Trump – and Trump has now shamelessly rewarded him for his loyalty.

    Trump announces pardon for Michael Flynn
    CNN, Nov 25 2020 5:15 PM ET

    President Donald Trump announced today that he has granted a full pardon to his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, wrapping up the retired general's long legal drama over his communications with a top Russian diplomat that Trump's Justice Department sought to end.

    "It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!" Trump tweeted. Flynn, who was Trump's first national security adviser, pleaded guilty twice to lying to the FBI during its investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential campaign about his conversations with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement that the President "abused the pardon power to reward Michael Flynn, who chose loyalty to Trump over loyalty to his country. There is no doubt that a President has broad power to confer pardons but when they are deployed to insulate himself, his family and his associates from criminal investigation, it is a corruption of the Framers' intent. It's no surprise that Trump would go out just as he came in – crooked to the end."

    Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI but Trump is blaming "the left" for going after him. I agree with what Adam Schiff said.

    One of Donald Trump's favorite epithets is "loser." He has referred to many politicians and athletes and certain members of the military as "losers." Now he is a loser himself – and refuses to admit it: "There was massive fraud! I won the election!" Wow.

    Trump biographer hits President where it hurts: 'Cannot even succeed at being a loser'
    "He is a profoundly incompetent person, a loser," author Michael D'Antonio said of the President.

    The exodus continues at the White House that Donald Trump (on August 30, 2018) called a "smooth-running machine."

    Dr. Scott Atlas resigns from Trump administration
    The controversial member of the White House Covid-19 task force discredited face masks and called the idea that schools shouldn't reopen in the fall 'hysteria.'

    Does a United States President have the power to pardon his children for crimes they have committed? Unfortunately, yes. Can a President give a "pre-emptive pardon" to his children even though they have not yet been charged with any crimes? Well, delusional Donald believes he has that power. CNN's Chris Cuomo says Trump "wants to excuse his children even before there are any investigations." This reminds me of the Red Queen's declaration in Alice's Adventures In Wonderland: "Sentence first – verdict afterwards."

    Trump reportedly considering pardons for 3 of his children and Rudy Giuliani
    The pardons could benefit Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, as well as son-in-law Jared Kushner.

    In Trumpworld, do you need to have served in the military or worked in the defense industry in order to get a job at the Pentagon? Nope. The only requirement is that you show 100% loyalty to Donald Trump.

    Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by more than 7,000,000 votes in the 2020 Presidential election. Biden won the electoral college vote 306 to 232. Trump's galaxy-sized ego will not allow him to admit defeat. He insists he won. He insists the election was "stolen" from him. He insists there was "widespread voter fraud." Investigations by the Justice Department, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security found no voter fraud. None. Trump wanted to fire Attorney General William Barr for contradicting him and saying there was no voter fraud – but aides talked him out of it. Today, Barr resigned, effective December 23. In a fawning, obsequious letter of resignation, Barr praised Trump for strengthening our military, securing our border and presiding over a robust economy. Of course those claims are false but Barr would never dare to criticize Trump.

    I read Barr's letter and I do not think he wrote it. For one thing, he said the justice department will continue to investigate voter fraud, and this is after he said there was no voter fraud. I think Trump or Pence wrote the letter.

    Donald Trump has greatly abused the Presidential power of executive clemency granted by Article II of the Constitiution. He has granted pardons or commutations to Roger Stone, Joe Arpaio, Michael Flynn, Scooter Libby and many others who were convicted of federal crimes. It doesn't matter what crimes they committed – Trump rewards them for being 100% loyal to him. Disgusting!

    'It's turned crazy': Inside the scramble for Trump pardons
    CNN, Dec 16 2020 2:55 PM ET

    President Donald Trump may not be willing to accept his term is ending but, as the clock ticks down on his time in office, hundreds of his allies, including some of his closest business associates and many high-profile criminals, are ramping up their efforts to squeeze out the final ounces of his presidential power. Since Trump lost the election six weeks ago, calls and emails have been flooding into the West Wing from people looking to benefit from the President's powers of clemency. So inundated is Trump's staff with requests for pardons or commutations that a spreadsheet has been created to keep track of the requests.

    Trump is abandoning the principal responsibilities of his job as he looks for ways to reward loyalists while he still can. Nowhere is the end of Trump's term more obvious than in the push for pardons. "It's turned crazy," one person familiar with the efforts said. "There's a lot of activity."
