House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler said Sunday it’s “unforgivable” if President Trump promised to pardon Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan if he broke the law by denying entry to asylum seekers.

“This just shows the president’s contempt for law,” the New York Democrat said during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The comments come after CNN reported senior administration officials said the president told Mr. McAleenan, who has been named acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, he “would pardon him if he ever went to jail for denying U.S. entry to migrants.” It’s unclear if the president was joking.
