MSC Posted November 26, 2020 Share Posted November 26, 2020 Having read the constitution and finding it kind of open to interpretation how the pardon power works, I'm no closer to finding a good answer for this. Can a President pardon themselves? Is one question. Can the next President revoke that pardon? Is another. Obviously we are only talking about pardons of federal charges. Can Trump even pardon himself for a federal charge that has not been formally filed yet? If so, where does it end? Why shouldn't every president end their time with giving themselves a pardon for any federal crimes they may have committed while in office? It all seems so confusing to me. If it is the presidential office giving out the pardons, what is to stop Biden from revoking any pardon given by Trump to himself or others?
