If he's this brazen at this point, so in-your-face, what on earth will happen if he isn't voted out in November? He'll eat the country alive, devour us.

I think there might have been a few problems prosecuting mobsters even with the additional prosecutorial powers the RICO act provided if the mobsters had the power to grant pardons for their subordinates. But all is not lost. Trump cannot grant himself a pardon. And while that presidential power, predicated on the President never being a scumbag, is absolute it does not according to the recent SCOTUS decision allow the president to commit crimes. Crimes like obstruction of justice or using his pardoning power to do that.

"the U.S. Constitution, whose framers never imagined that a US president could ever be loathsome, treacherous, criminally dirty, an openly appalling."

More fools them, then!
