Well, you can forget the Mueller Report and the Russians now. Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio is dangling Pardons again.
Trump told CBP head he’d pardon him if he were sent to jail for violating immigration law

Donald Trump told Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan he would grant McAleenan a pardon if he were sent to jail for having border agents block asylum seekers from entering the US in defiance of US law, senior administration officials tell CNN.
Trump reportedly made the comment during a visit to the border at Calexico, California, a week ago. It was not clear if the comment was a joke.
Uh… not a joke.
Two officials briefed on the exchange say the President told McAleenan, since named the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, that he “would pardon him if he ever went to jail for denying US entry to migrants,” as one of the officials paraphrased.
During his visit to Calexico last Friday, Trump said on camera: “We’re full, our system’s full, our country’s full — can’t come in! Our country is full, what can you do? We can’t handle any more, our country is full. Can’t come in, I’m sorry. It’s very simple.”
Behind the scenes, two sources told CNN, the President told border agents to not let migrants in. Tell them we don’t have the capacity, he said. If judges give you trouble, say, “Sorry, judge, I can’t do it. We don’t have the room.”
I’ll try and remember that the next time I’m driving in Wyoming or one of those other big empty square States.
Oh, is this Obstruction of Justice? Unidicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio is coercing illegal behavior by explicitly promising there will be no consequence. Obstruction? It’s like hiring a Hit Man.
