Montana Gov. and Democratic presidential candidate Steve Bullock said Tuesday he would not pardon President Trump if Mr. Trump ends up facing criminal charges after he leaves office.

“No, I would not,” Mr. Bullock said on CNN. “I think to step back ... Congress needs to be doing its full investigatory functions, and the executive branch actually has to be responding.”

“What we’re seeing is even when lawyers who are expected to follow the rule of law that are officers of the court aren’t showing up for hearings, we’ve got a big problem,” he said.

Mr. Bullock did say that on his recent trip to Iowa, people were talking more about “how’s government going to work for them” than investigations.
