Biden smirks and laughs when asked about potential pardon for Trump

President Biden laughed and waved off a reporter Monday when asked whether he would consider a pardon for ex-President Donald Trump, who is under federal probes amid ongoing legal trouble.

The question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy comes after GOP candidate and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently said he would mull over pardoning Trump if elected to the White House.

“Where are you on the idea of a president pardoning Trump?” Doocy shouted at Biden before he took off on Marine One for Delaware.

Biden cracked a smile and waved the question off, before replying, “I’ll see you guys” and calling it “a great question.”

A federal special counsel investigation is looking into both Trump’s alleged role in inciting the Capitol riot in 2021 and his stashing of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.

DeSantis, Trump’s biggest 2024 rival for the GOP nomination, vowed to consider granting Trump – along with defendants of the Jan. 6 riot – a pardon if the 76-year-old is convicted of a federal crime.

“What I’m going to do is … on day one, I will have folks that will get together and look at all these cases [of] people who are victims of weaponization or political targeting, and we will be aggressive at issuing pardons,” he told the “Clay and Buck” radio show.

“And that could be from a grandma who got arrested and prosecuted to all the way up to, potentially, Trump himself,” co-host Clay Travis asked at one point. “Is that fair to say when you analyze what the charges might have been brought on a federal level?”

“I would say any example of disfavored treatment based on politics or weaponization would be included in that review, no matter how small or how big,” DeSantis replied.

DeSantis said he would consider a pardon for Trump.

Trump is also in legal hot water in New York and Georgia that would be out of the reach of any potential pardon issued by the president.

He was charged by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg last month with 34 felony counts of business fraud tied to alleged hush money payments made before the 2016 election. Trump is also under investigation in Georgia due to his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election result in that state won by Biden.
