write a response that addresses the following: In recent comments, President Trump has stated that he has “complete power” to pardon. Research the President’s power to
pardon and answer the following questions in your paper: 1. What does the Constitution have to say on the President’s power to pardon? 2. Give 2 arguments supporting
President Trump’s viewpoint on the pardon power and then give 2 arguments against his interpretation on the power. Back up your arguments with sources. 3. Do you
believe that the President should offer pardons to himself and to family members and/or friends? Why or why not? Paper Directions: 1. Your paper must be 2-3 pages
long. You must write your paper in either Arial or Calibri font, 12pt and double space your paper. Paper must be written using the MLA writing style. Your paper must
include: a cover sheet, your 2-3 pages of written material and a works cited page for a total of 5 pages. Proper MLA citation rules must be followed for all parts of
your submission. If you have any questions on format, please message me. Points will be deducted for failure to follow these requirements. 2. Paragraphs should be a
minimum of 3 sentences long. They should be no longer than 5-6 sentences. Proofreading and spelling/grammar checking will improve your overall score. Double and triple
check your paper before submitting as you will not be able to edit it afterwards. Points will be deducted for failure to follow these directions. 3. Within your paper,
you must provide evidence and citations to support your contentions. A minimum of 2 sources are required, but again, this is the minimum required for credit. Wikipedia
does not count as a source and will have 15 points deducted from the initial post grade. You must use in-text citations and follow the proper MLA format for using
them. Your paper may include no more than 1 direct quote and that direct quote is limited to a maximum of 3 sentences. Papers that do not use in-text citations or have
more than 1 direct quote will have points deducted. 4. A works cited section, citing all of your sources in proper MLA format, must be included with your paper. You
must include a works cited even with use of in-text citations. Papers without a works cited page included will automatically have half of the total points (50) for the
assignment deducted.
