DGA Calls on Ducey to Reveal Whether He Supports Trump Pardoning Himself

Does Doug Ducey Think Donald Trump Can Pardon Himself?

Today, the Democratic Governors Association is calling on Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to answer one simple question: Does he believe President Donald Trump could pardon himself of any crimes? The DGA’s request is part of a nationwide effort calling on Republican governors up for election to answer whether Trump has the power to pardon himself.

“President Trump is flouting the rule of law and it’s time for Doug Ducey to stand up to the head of the Republican Party,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “Does Doug Ducey believe Donald Trump can pardon himself? Does he think he should? Ducey has pardon authority himself, but he’s silent when it comes to President Trump’s perversion of the authority.”
