One of the points Alan Dershowitz made in the Op-Ed I linked in Fridays post:
I think it is important to put to rest the notion that there was anything criminal about the president exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and to request hope that he let go the investigation of General Flynn. Just as the president would have had the constitutional power to pardon Flynn and thus end the criminal investigation of him, he certainly had the authority to request the director of the FBI to end his investigation of Flynn.
I agree; I recommend that President Trump pardon General Flynn immediately.
But wait! Im not done yet
He should also grant pardons to Hillary Clinton, Huma Weiner, John Podesta, Cheryl Mills, the rest of her campaign staff as well as Paul Manafort and the entire Trump campaign staff - for any and all crimes committed during the 2016 presidential campaign. (NOTE: The pardons would specifically exclude any and all crimes related to the murder of Seth Meyers or Pizzagate. )
And while hes at it, why not pardon all the Russians as well?
Then, as there are no crimes related to the Russian attempt to influence the 2016 election to investigate, there is no need for a Special Prosecutor. So, Mr. Mueller
Ive found that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.

Think you meant ‘Seth Rich’. Seth Meyers, the ‘comedian’ is still alive.
Trump should issue a pardon to Flynn based on the fact his Constitutional rights were violated.
That’s a very good point
Dersh is right, but keep in mind he may be part of an effort to get Trump to do something the left would claim is impeachable, and that stupid RINOs could go along with. Even if Dersh is genuine, the result might be the same. It would be a risky move, but one that should be considered given that it is a hoax, and is detracting from Trump’s agenda. I think he should set the stage for it before acting; a nationwide tour laying out the case for his executive control and how the deep state is really attempting a coup against not just him, but democracy. Against the deplorables. 20 cities in 30 days, lay out the case, get people on his side, then pull the trigger.
