The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
Look, I get it: It’s really hard to keep track of all the latest twists and turns in the investigations around Donald Trump.
But here’s the big picture from today’s news: Under oath and in an open session of Congress, one of Donald Trump’s most trusted advisors implicated him in criminal activity while he’s been in the White House.
And this is on top of the 34 individuals and 3 companies that have been indicted, convicted, or pled guilty – including Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman and former National Security Advisor.
Our criminal justice system is hanging on and doing its job – the truth is coming out – despite unprecedented, relentless, and potentially illegal pressure from Donald Trump and his associates in and out of government.
But here’s the biggest threat right now: Donald Trump, or the next President, using the pardon power to cover up and permanently excuse this wrongdoing.
So let me be perfectly clear, in the way that everyone who might be President next should be: If I’m elected President of the United States, there will be no pardons for anyone implicated in these investigations.
