    Yeah, the point would be to bar him from running for political office in the future.
    Hope is the denial of reality

    Cohen probably had more dirt and look where that got him... even if Giuliani does have anything on Trump, it might not be anything that makes a difference wrt Trump's fate. And, let's face it, Trump is gonna need all the money he has

    Yes Trump can pardon the insurrectionists since it was a Federal crime. He can't pardon State crimes but since DC isn't a State everything in DC falls under the purview of Federal.

    No he won't (I think) as it's against his own self interest.

    If he pardons the criminals then that means that the Feds can't spend their time and effort going after the people who committed the crimes. It will also be impossible for the likes of Graham etc to say "justice has been done, let's draw a line in the sand and move on" though he'd try to find a way.

    Instead the Feds would have no recourse to respond besides going after the person who instigated it - him. He would be setting himself up as the only fall guy left. Especially if it's ruled a self-pardon is unlawful.

    If he doesn't pardon them he can leave them swinging in the wind to take the fall as he walks away saying "oh that? Terrible, nothing to do with me. But I was robbed and people are angry ..."

    As always with Trump he will look after number one first. Letting his supporters face the courts instead of him is in his self interest.

    1. Will he try to do this?

    2. Would it be legal?

    3. Are there any ways to counteract it?

    4. What would the broader consequences of a mass pardon be?

    edit: does he need a list of actual names or can he do a blanket pardon?

    Rand is probably right. These are just more people who failed him, after all. They didn't compel Congress, they're useless to him now, and so unless they can pony something up for him he's got no interest in providing them with pardons.

    Blanket pardon was done after Vietnam for any draft dodgers who'd gone to Canada, was never challenged.

    Considering he spoke at the rally and promoted it, should it be a surprise?
