I’m sure y’all know know this, but someone needs to explain it to this POTUS*, using pictures and small words.
The POTUS can only pardon federal crimes. Not State.
Accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt.
A person cannot be compelled to accept a pardon.
Accepting a pardon means you cannot invoke the 5th amendment, and can be compelled to testify against co-conspirators, even privileged communications.
