An ex-aide to Robert Mueller during his special counsel investigation of now-debunked Democrat claims the Trump campaign in 2016 colluded with Russia, Andrew Weissmann, is making the case for President Trump to “pardon” himself, according to a constitutional expert.

The comments come from Jonathan Turley, the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University.

Weissman was considered the “pit bull” of the Mueller team, which failed to make a case against the Trump campaign after allegations that were based on political opposition documents paid for partly by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Biden, following the November election that produced results that still are being challenged, called for everyone to “turn the page, to unite, to heal.”
