Regarding Pardons

People are now openly speculating on whether Trump plans to pardon all his fellow crooks. My guess is that he will pardon his family members, but that he is so vindictive and eager to blame other people for his own shortcomings, not to mention jealous of other people, that he will let most of the rest of them do their time.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.

If he were a smarter person, I would say that is definitely a possibility.  Since reports are that he didn't seem to think Mueller would be going after his family business (seems likely since he thought firing Bharara and Comey would stop the investigations), I think he figured he'd always get away with his criminal activity.  What I think his end goal was: making money for his businesses through his position as president, and removing regulations that slow that process down.
