"President Donald Trump is refusing to concede the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden, but once Trump moves to the acceptance stage of his defeat, the urgent business of presidential pardons is likely to surge to the top of his checklist before leaving office.
From campaign associates to members of his family -- and even possibly himself -- Trump could use his expansive pardon power to try to settle legal questions on his way out the door.
Current and former Trump administration officials say there's been minimal preparation for an expected onslaught of clemencies, as Trump is still pursuing dubious legal challenges to the election. But his Twitter feed over the past three years offers a working list of where the President might turn to wield his pardon power -- primarily toward those targeted by former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
Perhaps the biggest looming pardon question is whether Trump will consider granting himself a pardon, amid state investigations into his business and finances and the prospect of federal investigators scrutinizing him after he leaves office."

The Damage Report: November 13, 2020

Bannon appeared to endorse violence against the FBI director, Christopher Wray, and the infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci on an episode of his podcast on 5 November. The podcast, the War Room, was distributed in video form on a number of social media outlets, including Facebook. Twitter banned Bannon’s War Room account permanently, saying it had suspended the podcast account for violating its policy on the glorification of violence. Facebook removed the video after about 10 hours online, but did not suspend the account." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Echoing elements of the QAnon conspiracy theory during an appearance on far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ program, Rhodes said the only way to prevent his men from engaging in a “bloody fight” would be Trump declassifying information to supposedly expose pedophiles in the “deep state” and allow the president to stay in power. Rhodes also indicated his militia will be involved in a rally to support Trump planned for this weekend in the nation's capital." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Rand Paul (R-KY) was all about finding the silver lining in the dark storm clouds of the Covid pandemic currently raging out of control across the country, hailing the lower mortality rate on Fox News while positive test cases and hospitalizations set new records on Thursday. Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum begin the discussion by asking the senator’s reaction to the dire state of the outbreak: “Are you shocked at how red the entire country is when you look at that heat map and how widespread this is in the second wave?” “I think that when you’re looking at the incidents, it’s important to know that yes, we have four times more cases of Covid than we had in the spring, but we have half as many deaths,” Paul said. “When you look at the mortality, mortality is down to about 88% lower than it was in the spring, so there is some good news here. A lot of good things are happening.”" #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Sloan said that all passengers were asked to return to their cabins to isolate and that the ship's crew was also isolating." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

But he still has a somewhat better shot of winning anyway, the same way he did last time: through the magic of the Electoral College. The presidential election isn’t decided by the number of votes you get overall. It’s decided by whether you get more votes in the right states. Whichever candidate ends up winning contests that add up to 270 electoral votes is the winner. In other words, it doesn’t necessarily matter that polls show Biden ahead by nearly 9 percentage points nationally. What matters is the exact breakdown of the votes in key politically divided states like Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
