Live Updates: Comey hints at pardon after House impeaches Trump
The Federalist co-founder Ben Domenech and FOX News contributor Mike Huckabee join 'The Ingraham Angle' to discuss
BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis asked Comey if he thought Biden should pardon Trump in the same fashion that President Gerald Ford did his predecessor, Richard Nixon after he resigned over the Watergate scandal in 1974.
"I don’t know, he should at least consider it," Comey told Maitlis. "As part of healing the country and getting us to a place where we can focus on things that are going to matter over the next four years, I think Joe Biden is going to have to at least think about that."
- Whether or not the impeachment results in a conviction, it marks a historic moment in that no prior U.S. president has been impeached twice.
- A trial could go on for weeks -- if it takes place at all.
The earliest the Senate could receive the article of impeachment would be Jan. 19, a day before Biden's inauguration, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
