"Democratic civil war twenty eighteen we will get there later in the show. But right now, it's Maria in Albuquerque on k b q. Hi maria. I just giving over pneumonia. And my voice sounds kind of weird. But I just had to call you and ask you this question. I thought maybe somebody might have. But I can't. For somebody to ask it. 'cause my voice. Can you understand what I hope you feel better? But sure, let's get you. Let's get you back off your off your throat. So your question is. Pardon? Now goes away. Yes. And no he can he can do. And by the way, I'm getting raw. This is good. News Maria have good news for you. I have good news. Good news. That don't have ordered that. Benedict. Donald can can issue a pardon to Paul Manafort this second, and that would remove from Paul Manafort any chance of going to prison. It would also remove his fifth amendment protection. Because now there would be no reason for him. He has no reason to do not self-incriminating. I'm using too many double negatives there. So the prosecutor would say, okay, great. You've been granted a pardon. So that means that you can't be prosecuted for any of this stuff. So now, tell us everything and put him right in front of a grand jury tell all the story again. And if he lies Dylan datum again, and then they'll Donald Trump left apart, pardon the second time and on it goes to ad infinitum. Well, that makes me feel better. I thought oh my God. If he does know nothing. No. Because he understand Maria. What what a president? Let's even a so-called fraudulent one can do is issue a pardon, right? That means no prison time. You don't go to jail. It does not mean the cooperation agreement is void it doesn't mean that there's a gag order on Paul Manafort, it doesn't mean that he's immune from a civil subpoena or pardon me criminal subpoena. It only it's like Joe are pile when Trump pardon jaw pile. Joel pile wanted to judge to expunge his conviction and seal the file and do all this stuff. And the judge said, no, obviously, the judge was very unhappy about that. And the judge said you got your pardon no prison for you. The rest of it is outside pardon power. I'll take care of the rest, and it all stays. In the public file where Justice is served. Thanks maria. Geico presents unhelpful home improvement.."
