That's not to say a self-pardon ultimately would stand. But it would take a series of events to knock it down. A prosecutor first would have to indict Trump, notwithstanding the self-pardon.

Scientists were also able to identify carbon, sodium, and aluminum using NASA’s Hubble space telescope. “However, there is a clear absence of what is known as the 'iron group' of elements, iron, nickel, chromium and manganese,” the researchers said, in the statement. “These heavier elements are normally cooked up from the lighter ones, and make up the defining features of thermonuclear supernovae. The lack of iron group elements in SDSSJ1240+6710 suggests that the star only went through a partial supernova before the nuclear burning died out.” … [Read more...] about Thermonuclear blast sends star hurtling across our galaxy
