Former FBI Director 詹姆斯·科米 Wednesday said he thinks 总统当选人拜登 should consider pardoning 特朗普总统 for allegedly inciting the Capitol riot after he takes office.

BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis asked Comey if he thought Biden should pardon Trump in the same fashion that President Gerald Ford did his predecessor, Richard Nixon, after he resigned over the Watergate scandal in 1974.

I don’t know, he should at least consider it,” Comey told Maitlis. “As part of healing the country and getting us to a place where we can focus on things that are going to matter over the next four years, I think Joe Biden is going to have to at least think about that.
