Tuesday, February 18, 2020

I was outraged when Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich. But the problem isn't with the Constitution giving the President the power to pardon or commute sentences. The problem is that many Presidents seem willing to use that power for reasons of political expediency as opposed to justice. If I had my druthers, any POTUS granting a pardon would have to also issue a lengthy report explaining the ethical or moral grounds on which the pardon is based. Money and political hypocrisy should not be considered a valid reason.

No. We usually like to see our criminals punished.

That's why Blagojevich was tried and sentenced during the Obama administration.

Must be a difference between the Left and Right?

Of course, Blagojevich served 8 years. Trump is hoping Stone and Flynn serve no time.

Remind me, Did Obama intervene in the re-trial of Stone after the first trial was a hung jury? Did Obama demand a reduced sentence for Blagojevich because he was a Democrat?

I doubt Rod Blagojevich will be much of a problem, he is older, has no law license and you will likely see him working at Cinnabon at a Mall near you soon.
Understand that the federal prison system has no parole or compassionate discharge. Rob, another Illinois politician from Chicago"s political cesspool has served almost 3/4 of his sentence, been in the slam for over 10 years. It literally requires a presidential pardon to cut loose a federal convict loose early. It is taken to the extreme to the point that the day and the hour a convict arrives determines when a convict is released. The do not cut a single minute off a sentence.

By saying this isn't a crime worthy of such punishment, Trump is fighting corruption by properly re-defining corruption.

You're such a know-nothing dweeb. Democrats largely hated Blagojevich and were glad to see him go to prison. But he went on Trump's game show once which is good enough to get a commutation. Plus Blago's overt corruption mirrors that of Trump.

Combover Quisling commuted Blagojevich's sentence because he sees no problem with what Blago did. Drumpf is on the record with wanting to do away with statutes that forbid American businesses from bribing foreign officials. Diaper Donnie was impeached over a bribery and extortion scheme. He is open for business allowing foreign countries to bribe him through his properties. So as far as Drumpf is concerned, bribery and extortion are just a normal part of doing business.

He is trying to cast pardons under a "it's a common thing" type of light.

He is trying to show how penal sentences may be too long and, by choosing his pardons carefully at this point, can try to illustrate that he is justified in issuing the pardons.

This is all laying the groundwork for his pardons of his inner circle criminals, i.e., (and imo) those who are in jail, on the way to jail or under indictment, for lying to cover up for Pres Trump. It is laying the groundwork for Pres Trump to reward those who lied for him during the cover-up.

Just for fun:

When Blagojevich Appeared on Celebrity Apprentice and Trump Confronted Him Over Harry Potter Research

The episode Blagojevich got fired on was focused on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, and his time on the show ended with Donald Trump grilling him over his lack of research on Harry Potter facts.

As Trump confronted Blagojevich over what his group did wrong, he said, "Your Harry Potter facts were not accurate. Who did the research?"

Blagojevich tried to make excuses but ultimately Trump said the onus was on him because he "went to Orlando to learn about Harry Potter."

"So wouldn't you have been the one to know the product and learn the product?" Trump asked.

Blagojevich again tried to defend himself and tried to list the Hogwarts houses ("Slythering" [sic], "Hufflepuff," "Ravencloth" [sic]). But Trump continued to chastise him, concluding with those two infamous words: "You're fired."

"White-collar crime prosecutions hit lowest level in 33 years" - CBS News.

So not only is the Drumpf DOJ not prosecuting white collar crime, at least four of today's pardons and commutations were of white, white-collar criminals. Blagojevich, financial fraudster-Junk Bond King Milken, tax cheat and perjurer Kerik and DeBartelo who was convicted in a gambling fraud scheme. I'm sure Diaper Donnie sees himself in each of the four men. Drumpf is the world's biggest projectionist, and with the Kerik, Blago and Milken actions you can see what his concerns are following his coming 2020 election loss. The comment about Blagojevich being convicted for being caught saying something stupid that most politicians say is incredibly outrageous, par for the course for Hair Furor.

Really, Jeff? Let me splain to you.

In electronic warfare, Military aircraft drop bales of "chaff" which is shredded aluminium. These slow falling, tiny pieces of aluminum create false radar targets which can draw Enemy fire and by creating many targets, help to prevent the real target from being recognized, and destroyed.

By Trump pardoning lots of miscreants, he is just dropping political chaaff. He has no concern for them, except as they become political chaff for "Important" VIP Pardons.

Each convict pardoned, provides 'political camouflage' for all the others, thereby, sheltering the important ones. You know, his a-wholl buddies and Co Conspirators, the ones who lie to Congress for Trump, and provide cover for him.
In multiple pardons, Trump also creates "pardon fatigue". He gets people arguing over inconsequential pardons so that they are tired of talking about pardons by the time the limos pick up Stone and Flynn at either the courthouse, or at the prison gates.

If Trump pardoned only Stone and Flynn, the political blow-back would be enormous. By pardoning many, the President, the GOP and Trump cronies can slip out, bearing much less burden due to all the others being pardoned also.

Trump also provides GOP talking points as the pardons create heat on the GOP, who will maximize the chaff drop, by deflecting questions to the other, non Trump connected pardonees whenever pointed questions are brought up to Trump's flying monkey squad GOP.

Cant you see McConnell on FACE THE NATION taking the question of Stone and Flynn Pardons? It will sound like this: "I dont think you can look at the Stone and Flynn Pardons as political any more than one could his many other pardons, and blah, blah, blah". And the interviewer '...will have to leave it there'.

Trump could not use this tactic if the GOP were not accomplices; as the Impeachment displayed, Trump knows the GOP wont say schit nor Shinola about it.

Now do you understand, Jeff?

Sheesh!

Renato Mariotti @renato_mariotti

My former boss Patrick Fitzgerald represented his friend James Comey.

He also prosecuted Scooter Libby, Conrad Black, and Rod Blagojevich. All three received pardons or commutations from Trump. That doesn't seem coincidental.

At least he didn't pardon terrorists like Clinton did:

On August 11, 1999, Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of FALN, which is a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.[5] The 16 were convicted of conspiracy and sedition and sentenced with terms ranging from 35 to 105 years in prison. Congress, however, recognizes that the FALN is responsible for "6 deaths and the permanent maiming of dozens of others, including law enforcement officials." Clinton offered clemency on the condition that the prisoners renounce violence, seeing as none of the 16 had been convicted of harming anyone and they had already served 19 years in prison. This action was lobbied for by ten Nobel Laureates and the Archbishop of Puerto Rico.[6] The commutation was opposed by the U.S. Attorney's Office, the FBI, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons and was criticized by many, including former victims of FALN terrorist activities and the Fraternal Order of Police.[7] Hillary Clinton, then campaigning for her first term in the Senate, initially supported the commutation,[8] but withdrew her support three days later.[9]

Not to engage in whataboutism, but I am here is some whataboutism. Obama did this 1,927 times, and holds the single day record with 330 in the same day.

Why all the fist shaking over Trump doing it 35 times in 3 years?

I would prefer they did it zero times.... But 35 is a bit less than nearly 2000.

If you want to compare crimes, some inn the Obama list are pretty bad, so it can't be that. I wonder what it is causing this outrage?

You effectively killed the thread. Not nice.
