Yesterday, Donald Trump pardoned Mike Flynn. During Robert Mueller's inquiry and Trump's impeachment, Trump signaled to his associates that, if they refused to cooperate, he'd take care of them. Trump got William Barr to take care of Roger Stone. Now Trump has taken care of Mike Flynn.
Flynn's pardon is only the first of several pardons which Trump will issue before he leaves office. His last act may be to pardon himself -- which would be a violation of the core legal principle that a man cannot be a judge in his own case.
But principle has never guided Trump's decisions. He has always made decisions based upon self-interest -- his own self-interest.
Mr. Biden's attorney general will have his hands full. And Trump will leave office as he entered it -- a criminal.
