Rubio: It'd be a "terrible mistake" for Trump to pardon Manafort

“I believe it’d be a terrible mistake,” Rubio said on “This Week” Sunday. “Pardons should be used judiciously. They’re used for cases with extraordinary circumstances.”…

“I don’t believe that any pardons should be used with relation to these particular cases, frankly,” Rubio told Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz. “Not only does it not pass the smell test, I just think it undermines the reason why we have presidential pardons in the first place, and I think, in fact, that if something like that were to happen, it could trigger a debate about whether the pardon powers should be amended given these circumstances, so I hope that they don’t do that. It would be a terrible mistake if they did.”
