COLBERT: “Gaetz has denied any wrongdoing, but sources say that just before the previous president left office, Gaetz asked for a blanket pardon. Oh, I don’t think the blanket wants a pardon, I think it wants to be burned. It’s seen too much. Gaetz wanted a preemptive pardon for any illegal activity he’s ever done, like innocent people do. And he had reason to believe he might get that pardon because of his close relationship to the former president.”
