Biden should pardon Trump -

This would be the greatest unifying action since Lincoln provided amnesty to confederate generals. Further, this is one of the only moves that could reverse polarization and reduce tensions.

A pardon will legitimize Biden's presidency to Trump voters.. Biden will oversee a Democrat House and a Democrat Senate. Impeachment of Trump is going to spark a persecution crisis among the millions of Americans who still support Trump. A pardon assures them that the Democrat America is not going to become their USSR nightmare.

A pardon does not mean Trump "gets away with this scot free". Trump is already facing social and business consequences for his actions. His primary lender, Deutchebank is cutting him off. His brand has become toxic to any celebrities or political elites. Further, a federal pardon does not stop state investigations.

This is a great idea and it will never happen.

Biden should make an example out of Trump but then pardon the people caught up in the capitol boogaloo

I could live with that. Pardoning Trump would shut him up forever. And all of his supporters would have to reluctantly say "I was worried about Biden, but I liked that pardon .... "
I promise you this is not true. Nothing short of death's embrace will shut trump up for any appreciable length of time. Even if they were to LOCK! HIM! UP! He'd still be talking shit from behind bars to anyone who will listen.

Extremely unlikely. They want Trump and MAGA to PAY. None of them are willing to reach a middle ground. It's all or nothing.

Remember when Obama attended Trump's inauguration, yet MAGA still shits on Obama? That is peanuts compared to what could happen now.
iirc ex-presidents usually get a security detail and some kind of stipend as a thanks for serving the country. maybe they also want to impeach him so that he won't have body guards.

If Biden was coherent enough to be anything other than Kamala's puppet and neither the Woke Left Millennials and Zoomers or the neoliberal Gen X'ers that empower them weren't so downright petty and vengeful, this would be a smart approach.

Pardoning Trump and most of the Capitol rioters outside a few high-profile examples like Baked Alaska or the buffalo Viking dude would be a great way to push a "return to normalcy" narrative more effectively and Trump's pardon would come with the condition that he'd be powerless politically and would not be protected from the social and financial consequences he's already dealing with or from state charges.

It'd be a smart approach and if Trump was foolish enough to leave Florida and wind up in New York or DC, he could be brought up on state charges and then everyone would get what they wanted.

Unfortunately, this is the 2020's and nothing good ever happens anymore and generally hasn't happened since 2008. It's a miserable nightmare and the Woke Left will get their revenge.

The Woke Left is built entirely on the mindset of "Fuck You, Dad!" and by goodness, they'll do anything it takes to make "Dad" suffer and pay, whatever form that spectral enemy may take.

The investigation hasn't even started yet. We don't even know if Trump actually committed any federal crimes, everyone is just assuming he did. It seems a bit early to be talking about this.

OP is completely correct.

But it would also be best for everyone if say big tech stopped censoring. But where is the incentive? The people that control Biden have no incentive or intention to unify. Their motive us in the opposite direction, much like the EU and brexit. They want to punish everyone involved to serve as an example what happens when you mess with their plans.

That's because the idea of someone not attending their successor's inauguration is kind of unthinkable in this day and age. It's tradition to at least show up, whether or not you can stand the person. Decorum and a sign of unity after even the most contentious elections.

Why signal for unity with the people who have nothing but pure white-hot hatred for you?

This has yet to be determined. We're kind of in unexplored territory with this whole capitol mess. But as far as I'm aware inciting people to commit crimes on your behalf is still illegal.

Then the question becomes whether or not Trump was intentionally trying to incite violence that day.

At this point, I honestly think even he was surprised by the Capitol riots. Everyone was taken aback when it happened because nobody expected the MAGA crowd to do anything other than stand there and bitch and complain like they always do.

At the absolute most, people were expecting a few brawls between Antifa and Proud Boys but that's it. The crowd rioting in the Capitol shocked all of us.
