`` The President unquestionably has the power to pardon people, but a pardon used for a corrupt purpose can still be a crime -- for example, obstruction of justice... It could play out like this: Mueller charges one or more of Trump's co-conspirators with a bunch of federal crimes, including conspiracy. If Trump pardons them, he immediately files a new conspiracy charge, now alleging the pardon itself as an overt act.''
