MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Congressman Steve Cohen (D-Tenn) is proposing a limit on who the president can pardon.
Cohen introduced the proposal Tuesday that would prohibit a president from pardoning themselves, their family, or anyone on their campaign staff or administration.
The proposal comes after former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was indicted on charges including money laundering and conspiracy against the United States.
Cohen said a pardon is supposed to be reserved for cases of injustice.
The bill is not expected to gain any traction on Capitol Hill.
