A House Democrat plans to propose an amendment to the Constitution that would limit presidential pardoning authority in the wake of three Trump campaign aides facing indictments in the special counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Under Rep. Steve Cohen ís (Tenn.) proposed constitutional amendment, presidents would be prohibited from pardoning themselves, their families, members of their administrations or people who worked on their presidential campaigns.

I just looked up the word ,Twit and it’s him
yes because 2/3’s of all the STATES will approve a US Constitutional amendment, just to get back at Trump.
How about a Constitutional Amendment against idiots being allowed in Congress?
Or Term Limits? That was good enough for the Presidency
Even Ted Cruz voted to stop Trump from doing recess appointments.
It is fun watching the Democrat Marxist Progressive melt down.
Th proper noun for this (alleged) man is ‘Twatwaffle’
Bwhaa! Haa! Even if there was an appetite for it, the average length of time to get a Constitutional Amendment approved is eight years. Trump would be working on his Presidential library by the time if made it through the process.
Snowballs have a better chance of surviving in the Sahara than this ‘amendment’..............besides, a Democrat POTUS might need to us that power someday...............
Lets git er done, folks!
All he needs is 2/3 of Capitol Hill and 38 states to agree.
Most all democrats are pompous idiots.
This should be passed and ready to go into effect by Friday, ya think?
Hey give him a break. He doesn’t know the Constitution, let alone what it takes to get it amended. He thinks just them voting on it will do the trick. He figures the Democrats + the Never-Trumpers is more than enough votes to pass it. 8>)
Steve Cohen and Al Green represent two thirds of the three stooges.
And, here I thought it was douche nozzle.
It will read: “No President with the Surname of Trump or who is a registered Republican shall have the power of Pardon”.
If it is a Democrat Bill it must be setting a base price for pardons and a sliding scale with 40% going to the Clinton Foundation. Punishing Trumps allies is expected to become big business. 10th
This is never going to happen. Just a nut-job democRAT's wet dream.
This is obviously a partisan, hate-Trump effort to hamstring the president.
Impeachment hasn't worked, even though Maxine "James Brown" Waters has been blabbering about it for months.
The 25th Amendment hasn't worked, even though Trump is driving the democRATS crazy, he himself is not mentally ill or incompetent to hold the office.
Two-thirds of the states have to approve a constitutional amendment. That takes years.
Don't. Hold. Your. Breath.
Well, maybe a week from Friday. LOL!
The twit is my neighbor by two street blocks.
