President Trump is mulling an unprecedented self-pardon, raising questions about what federal crime he would pardon himself for. MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber reports on Trump’s potential legal exposure after leaving office, emphasizing that the rule of law requires any consideration of an ex-President’s exposure focus on the evidence, not one’s views of the ex-President or his policies. Melber reports on a specific convicted crime that Trump was allegedly involved in, reporting on both sides of any potential case regarding that offense. This is an excerpt from a longer special report. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. http://www.thebeatwithari.com). Aired on 12/7/2020.
