      that it might also mean that a president who has been impeached but not yet convicted and removed from office cannot pardon crimes. In fact, I'm starting to sway to that interpretation. I guess I would have to go to the Federalist Papers to find out what is meant there. Funny how vague that is.

      Republicans are liars.
