Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute new Government

From Hot Air:
... Pundits are speculating on the possibility that Barack Obama might want to issue a full and complete pardon to Clinton before he leaves office. Not too long ago I would have scoffed at the idea, but in what has already been one of the strangest years in American politics on record I’m no longer quite so sure. 
Andrew C. Mccarthy has a lengthy thought piece on the subject over at National Review this week. Even if he maintains the will to do it, could Trump actually pull this off? And if the signs point that way, what would be the fallout from Clinton receiving a pardon as a parting gift from the 44th president? 
This is one of what will no doubt be many things that Mr. Trump will find were easier to say in the heat of the moment (a contentious debate between the candidates) than to do in his new political reality. 
During the campaign, nothing damaged Clinton as badly as the specter of criminal jeopardy. But now Trump has been elected, and he has a governing agenda that will require cooperation from Capitol Hill. 
A prosecution of Clinton would provoke Democratic outrage, which means media outrage, which, in turn, means Republican panic. 
Much of the outrage is ill-considered — although that doesn’t stop some smart people from expressing it. The objection is that the United States is not, for example, Turkey, where the Islamist despot persecutes his political opposition. 
But the comparison is apples and oranges. Clinton would not be under investigation for opposing Trump; the probe would be based on evidence of non-trivial law-breaking that has nothing to do with Trump.

Hillary! -- Bringing a whole new twist to "Duck and Cover"

The list of people in his administration needing pardons is endless. Don't forget Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Podesta, etc., etc. each of whom could take Barry down...
Issuing blanket pardons, however, would simply confirm the criminality ...not its depth or extent.

Even if O covers Hillary with a blanket pardon it won't cover the foundation. You can't pardon a foundation, which is a corporate entity. The foundation is what truly merits investigation.

The CF is the tip of the iceberg. All the billionaires have one. They save tremendous amounts in taxes by funding them and preside (by proxy) over lucrative and useful slush funds of influence money. All the while pretending to charitable intent. Buffett is especially egregious.

It's a rotten feature of the tax code. Time to expose it and end it.

Abolish the 501(c)3.
