Comey Says Biden Should ‘At Least Think About’ Pardoning Trump

While President Donald Trump has reportedly mulled giving himself a presidential pardon before he leaves office, former FBI Director James Comey is suggesting that President-elect Joe Biden should consider granting him a one.

During an interview with the BBC, Comey was asked if Biden should pardon Trump. 

He said, “I don’t know. He should consider it.”

“Now, I don’t know whether Donald Trump… he’s not a genius, but he might figure out that if he accepts a pardon, that’s an admission of guilt, the United States Supreme Court has said. So I don’t know that he would accept a pardon,” he continued.

However, Comey argued, “As part of healing the country and getting us to a place where we can focus on things that are going to matter over the next four years, I think Joe Biden is going to have at least think about that.”

While the former FBI chief is suggesting it may be helpful for national healing if Biden pardons Trump, he has made clear that he believes the president should be held responsible for what he sees as Trump’s role in inciting a mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol.

During an interview on NBC’s “Today” on Tuesday, Comey said, “The president needs to be sanctioned for his behavior and held accountable.”

“I think it is important that he be impeached,” he added.

The House made history on Wednesday after 232 lawmakers voted to pass an article of impeachment against Trump. The resolution accuses Trump of “incitement of insurrection.”

Wednesday’s vote marks the first time a U.S. president has been impeached twice. 

Still, Comey is of the persuasion that the incoming administration should not seek to prosecute Trump, as IJR reported.

In his new book, “Saving Justice: Truth, Transparency, and Trust,” Comey argues that Biden’s attorney general should not “pursue a criminal investigation of Donald Trump.”

  1. If he does he will be a TRAITOR just like trumpuke.

    Shut up and go home Comey you supercilious asshole.

  2. Comey has finally said something sensible. Trump is being impeached for two offenses: 1. Being obnoxious, 2. Depriving Hillary Clinton of her coronation. The left still has not accepted her defeat and Trump’s victory.

    1. That is the stupidest crock of crap ever. Only a delusional idiot would think so.

    2. Hillary must hate Harris. She’s younger and will be president in a few months.
      Would appear that all of the Biden buzzards have come here to roost on this one.

  3. I don’t get Baden’s or Reps. Coney said consider pardoning him after he did whatever he could to bring him down. WTH and nobody cares if a GOP gov goes to inauguration. It’s obvious he is just a suck up. And an a better to voter fraud.

  4. It’s amazing to see all of this. We watched cities destroyed all summer by the left. And that was peaceful protest. And CNN even condoned the violence. And that’s okay?
    But off hinged people, that I highly doubt were real MAGA supporters, (and if you checked the time line, they weren’t even at the rally). Trump gets blamed for their actions?
    What happened to Antifa being just an idea by Joe? Hmmmm… something stinks in LaLa land!

  5. Blow it outs your butt Comey
    D*ck brain

    No worries, Biden will unite us again and listen to all Americans, including all those who feel no ones been helping them

  6. Are you kidding-Biden pardon Trump? NO WAY-Trump’s action incited a riot and continues to do so. Sorry honey but you are way off base and this will not help to sell books.

  7. “Now, I don’t know whether Donald Trump… he’s not a genius, but he might figure out that if he accepts a pardon, that’s an admission of guilt, the United States Supreme Court has said. So I don’t know that he would accept a pardon.” James Comey

    ARE.YOU.KIDDING.ME? NO! What is wrong with you?

    You won’t stop him by coddling him. Get a grip, man! He needs to feel pain, to be able to reflect on what he has done.

    1. REFLECT ON WHAT HE HAS DONE??? Trump is not even gone from the White House and you have already forgotten that he suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) which would eliminate the possibility of self-reflection. I do agree that coddling him won’t work.
