Statement from Tom Palzewicz in Response to Sensenbrenner’s Comments on Trump Pardon and Mueller Investigation

A Republican-controlled Department of Justice said more than 40 years ago that a President cannot pardon himself.

I am deeply disappointed in 40-year incumbent Jim Sensenbrenner‘s remarks today regarding the President’s pardon authority and Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. Jim Sensenbrenner is neglecting his duties as a member of the House Judiciary Committee and is undermining his own party’s historical commitment to the rule of law.

A Republican-controlled Department of Justice said more than 40 years ago that a President cannot pardon himself, and that’s the only sensible reading of the law. To suggest that Robert Mueller should narrow the scope of his investigation or conclude it before the facts have been fully examined is the beginning of a constitutional crisis.

Mueller has already indicted, convicted and/or made plea deals with numerous people, and if he says his investigation is ongoing, it’s ongoing. Sensenbrenner didn’t have a problem with the continuous widening of Ken Starr‘s mandate in the Clinton investigation and the many years that inquiry dragged on. In fact, he moved to impeach President Clinton, essentially for lying about an affair. What Donald Trump is potentially guilty of is much worse, so let’s stop with the rushing along of the Special Counsel and let the rule of law come first.

Tom Palzewicz is a Navy veteran and business owner who is running to bring responsible and common-sense solutions to Congress. The general election will be held Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

  1. Jake formerly of the LP says:

    This guy is very impressive. Tough district, filled with the dimmest of Baggers, but calling out Fat Jimmy as the partisan hack he is is a very good move. And if he doesn’t win, Palzewicz definitely should be given a spot on the radio – legitimately funny and intelligent.

    Let’s make Senselessbrenner sweat a bit, and see if the old man can handle a real race.

  2. GRNPAKWH says:

    I cannot be happier to know that Rep Sensenbrenner finally has a legitimate competitor. When we lived in Wauwatosa Sensenbrenner blocked my emails since I had a Milwaukee zip code. His aide stated they got too much “spam” from Milwaukee.

  3. Dennis says:

    Senenbrenner and the vast majority of Republicans will do and say anything to remain in power. I would venture a guess that Dems would do the same if the roll was reversed but that doesn’t excuse senenbrenner or his Republican hacks from doing the unthinkable now. Destroying what’s left of our democracy.
