Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin made a strange prediction over the weekend that President Trump will resign 10 minutes earlier than planned, giving VP Mike Pence the opportunity to pardon him.
On Sunday, political analyst and politicians suggested that the Department of Justice may be waiting until president Trump leaves office before indicting him for campaign finance violations, obstruction of justice or other crimes.
But according to Jennifer Rubin, president Trump has already devised a plan to thwart any attempt at indicting him. During an interview on MSNBC, Rubin pointed out that Justice Department rules against indicting a sitting president have never been litigated.
“He risks being prosecuted after he leaves office,” she explained. “For that very reason, I would predict here on MSNBC that when Trump leaves office, he will resign the presidency 10 minutes before Mike Pence leaves office, allowing Pence to pardon him.”
“Wow!” MSNBC guest host Jonthan Capehart replied. “We got that on tape.”
