Does President Trump fully understand the legal requirements governing presidential pardons? Has he even bothered to read Article II, Section 2, Clause 1 of the constitution?
It would appear not. Consider his recent pardon of personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
The pardon was issued just after a working lunch with Giuliani in the White House. The president and his attorney had just settled in the adjacent room for coffee when Rudy let out a not so subtle belch.
“Pardon me,” said Giuliani.
“Okay,” said the president.
