Rubio Warns Trump: If You Pardon Manafort, You Will Trigger A Debate About Amending Pardoning Powers

ABC News reports:

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said repeatedly that President Donald Trump pardoning former campaign chairman Paul Manafort would be a “terrible mistake,” and that doing so could possibly “trigger a debate about whether the pardon powers should be amended.”

“I think that would be a terrible mistake if” Trump pardoned Manafort, Rubio said on “This Week” Sunday. “I really do. I believe it’d be a terrible mistake. Pardons should be used judiciously. They’re used for cases with extraordinary circumstances.”
