If I were president of the United States and I had a lawyer that told me I could pardon myself, I think I would hire a new lawyer. – U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)
Here are some issues that caught my attention for today:
- Election Day
- Junior Tweets
- Pardon Me
Today (June 5) is Primary Election Day in Montana. Besides Montana, there are primaries in California, New Jersey, Iowa, and New Mexico.
Don’t forget to vote! You can still register to vote in Montana! Click HERE for more information.
Thanks to all those who are running for public office. Good luck!

Many thought that was a sign that the President or his son (maybe both) would be coming to Montana to campaign for the winner of the Republican U.S. Senate primary and against Tester.
It is a big event when the President or former President comes to Montana to campaign.
It does not always work, though.
President Donald Trump had the constitutional scholars scratching their heads and our founding fathers rolling over in their graves when he tweeted this:
As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!
I’m not expert although I probably know more about our government and constitution than the President, but I don’t believe the President has the power to pardon himself.
That’s the problem we have with the current President, he’s not as intelligent as past Presidents. The gap is widening, too. Every time he Tweets.
If Trump did pardon himself, I think it would be easy to get the votes to impeach him.
So I say, “Go ahead, Mr. President. Try it.”
