pardon me

Now George Papadopoulos' wife is going on Fox News to plead for a Trump pardon

Presidential pardons are all the rage these days, and George Papadopoulos is hopping on the bandwagon.

Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, the wife of the disgraced former adviser to President Trump, was asked on Monday's Tucker Carlson Tonight if she thinks her husband is going to prison. She was quick to reaffirm how "dedicated and committed" her husband was to the Trump campaign, and said that his loyalty should have earned him a pardon from the president.

Papadopoulos was charged in October with making false statements about his Russia connections, likely to impede the Russia investigation. It was later reported that he may have lied to protect Trump and allegedly sparked this whole mess after a few too many drinks.

And don't we all just want forgiveness after one of those nights?
