    Ford pardoned Nixon in 1970? Is your reseach conducted by 5-year old interns?

    It is like I watch your back so you watch my back principle. it's the hidden rule of authority holders, since politicians always have one or two corruption in order to take higher place. We expect perfect justice and fairness, but who will bear the risk for not pardoning predecessor in order to save themselves.

    That will not happen to Trump. Because he will not give up his power. He will still go out kicking and screaming like a little brat he is.

    The pardon was on September 8, 1974 not September 8, 1970.

    How could President Ford have pardoned Nixon in February 1970? Watergate scandal not until June 1972. Ford wasn’t President until 1974??

    Well then he's admitting that he was a criminal and his friends too, otherwise he got no need to do that.
