Romney: Biden should allow Trump to commit crimes with impunity

Even the Actual Anti-Trump Republicans:

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, argued that President Joe Biden should have pardoned Donald Trump after the Justice Department brought indictments against the former president and pressured New York prosecutors not to pursue Trump’s ongoing hush money trial.

In an exclusive interview on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle,” Romney expressed his dismay in response to Republican lawmakers, including the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s vice presidential prospects, rallying to Trump’s defense outside the Manhattan courthouse where Trump’s hush money trial is taking place.

“How does that make you feel about Republicans?” Ruhle asked Romney.

Romney, a vocal critic of Trump, said, “I think it’s a terrible fault for our country to see people attacking our legal system — that’s an enormous mistake. I think it’s also demeaning for people to quite apparently try and run for vice president by donning a red tie and standing outside the courthouse. It’s just — I’d have felt awkward.”

The Utah Republican argued that Biden should have pardoned Trump when the Justice Department announced charges against him and that the president “made an enormous error” by not pressuring New York prosecutors to drop their case against Trump. (Presidents can pardon only in federal cases.)

“He should have fought like crazy to keep this prosecution from going forward,” Romney said, referring to Biden. “It was a win-win for Donald Trump.”

So not only should Biden issue a blanket pardon Trump to create a de facto presidential immunity (albeit one that obviously will not be honored for Democratic presidents), total presidential immunity is so important that he should also interfere with state prosecutions to uphold it! Fighting Trumpism with Trumpism, apparently.

At least Romney isn’t one of the Republicans pulling the “he can’t be impeached because he can be prosecuted and he can’t be prosecuted because he can be impeached” shell game, but it’s still pretty grim.
