Former FBI Director James Comey is throwing his two cents into the match when it comes to President Donald Trump.
During an interview with BBC’s Newsnight he implored that Joe Biden should “consider” pardoning Trump, who is facing a second impeachment attempt.
“I obviously think he belongs in jail, but I don’t think pursuing that is in the best interests of the entire nation, so I think the wiser decision would be not to pursue him,” Comey said. “Be transparent about why you’re doing what you’re doing.”
When asked if Biden should pardon the POTUS “as Ford did Nixon,” Comey replied that Biden “should at least consider it.”
“Donald Trump belongs in jail.”

“Now I don’t know whether Donald Trump, he’s not a genius, but he might figure out that [if] he accepts a pardon, that’s an omission of guilt, the United States Supreme Court has said,” Comey continued.
“But as part of healing the country and getting us to a place where we can focus on things that are going to matter over the next four years, I think Joe Biden is going to have to at least think about that,” he added.
According to the Hill:
Legal experts have said it could be difficult to charge Trump with a crime related to last week’s deadly rioting at the Capitol by his supporters that led to the president’s second impeachment on Wednesday. But the president and his company could face scrutiny for possible financial crimes in the Southern District of New York, they have noted.
President Trump has not done anything wrong and therefore does not need to be pardoned for anything. It is almost insulting for Comey to suggest it.
