Hillary Clinton Skeptical of Trump’s Self-Pardon Claims and Criticizes GOP Tactics

Hillary Clinton’s Doubts

Hillary Clinton expressed skepticism regarding former President Donald Trump’s statements about his potential use of presidential pardon powers in a recent interview with Jen Psaki.

Clinton, who ran against Trump in the 2016 presidential election, stated that she doesn’t believe anything Trump says. She particularly focused on Trump’s remarks about the possibility of pardoning himself if he were to win another term in the White House.

Trump’s Self-Pardon Remarks

Donald Trump had previously stated in an interview with NBC News that he could have pardoned himself before leaving office if he had wished to do so.

Furthermore, he mentioned that it was “unlikely” he would consider self-pardoning if he were to be reelected. These remarks prompted skepticism from Clinton, who expressed her doubts during the interview.

GOP’s Impeachment Inquiry

During her conversation with Jen Psaki, Hillary Clinton also criticized House Republicans for their impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden.

She accused the GOP of manufacturing a “political problem” that they could exploit for their own gain. Clinton suggested that this tactic was an attempt to grandstand and create problems for President Biden.

She emphasized that the impeachment inquiry was not a genuine threat but rather a manifestation of the Republican party’s lack of a clear agenda for problem-solving and unity.

Psychological Projection

Clinton delved into Trump’s behavior during the interview, highlighting what psychologists refer to as “projection.” She explained that Trump often accuses others of actions or thoughts that he himself may be engaging in.

This phenomenon led Clinton to doubt Trump’s statements, including those related to self-pardoning. She emphasized that Trump’s track record of projecting his own actions or intentions raises skepticism about his claims.

Trump’s Past Statements on Pardoning

Trump had previously stated that he had no interest in pardoning himself, asserting his innocence regarding the charges brought against him.

These charges included allegations related to attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. Trump’s stance on not self-pardoning remained consistent, even when asked if he would reconsider such a pardon if reelected.
