3:05 pm
have power to grant pardons for offenses against the united states except in cases of impeachment. now federal parting can be granted at any time after a crime is committed and while it sets aside punishment it doesn't signify innocence. notably the claws also does not allow the president to pardon a state level crimes or civil suits. now in january's 6th the house impeached president trump for the federal charge of incitement of insurrection now many legal scholars believe he that he cannot pardon himself and one reason is that this charges connected to his impeachment which the clause specifically precludes under those circumstances. another reason lies in the overall context of the constitution. the federal papers which are essays that were written by the framers to promote ratification of the constitution is one of those reasons for example in federal
