At the beginning of February, I presented this set of questions as questions needing to be asked of the Republican candidates. The paragraph below is the conclusion to this post.
In addition, every candidate for president needs to be pressed on this same question. We are now in the midst of primary season, which means that many ordinary citizens will have opportunity to ask such questions. The question should have two parts — if Daleiden and Merritt are convicted, and if that case wends its way into the federal system, can you commit yourself to a presidential pardon for them? And secondly, would you be willing to consider awarding them the Medal of Freedom regardless of the status of their case?
I am most grateful that Megyn Kelly asked Ted Cruz one of the questions, and am doubly grateful that Cruz answered it appropriately. All the other remaining candidates need to be asked the question. Especially Trump.
