Why Obama ***SHOULD*** pre-emptively pardon Hillary Clinton, and ONLY Hillary Clinton

(for any crime committed over her emails, including perjuries, not anything regarding the Clinton Foundation)
  • I do NOT want to see Congress tied up in ANYTHING else but implementing the changes which are compulsory
  • I do NOT want to see partisan divisions in Congress ENHANCED, and they will be so that Democrats in Congress and the Senate oppose EVERYTHING
  • I do not want to see the divisions in the nation driven to such a degree that any case can ever be made that a political vendetta has now become a PRECEDENT, this is not ROME 90 BC
  • I want another FBI director to conduct the investigation into this AND the Clinton Foundation in SILENCE
  • I want to see if any other crime has been committed by underlings acting at her direction or with her tacit approval (‘will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?’)
This is all best achieved without the over arching and mesmerizing idea of HRC in jail.
Obama will do the nation a favor by taking this heat, and it will be hot.
Besides, in doing so, it is a tacit admission that HE recognizes wrongdoing, and that we all should.

AmSpectator: Tell the President he might need to grant two pardons this year

Love it, Epa. I absolutely agree.

So many Trump supporters want him to serve as their Capo for their personal grudges.

Trump needs to do what he says, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

If he just did half the things in his first 100 days to-do list, he would be one of the greatest Presidents in history.

The problem with the Clinton pardon is simply that the pardon itself is not a blanket. She must be pardoned for each crime and period in which the crime took place. Pardons are not for "all sins real and imagined". There are so many violations of USC 18 and because there are no actual charges, a factual basis needs to be made for each -- that it would be embarrassing for Obama in the extreme.

Then there is the Clinton Foundation mess, which is still under investigation. She'd have to lay out the crimes that she committed, when she committed them, etc. there as well in order to receive a pardon. (sort of like an "Albert plea")

Crimes committed thru the foundation are literally unimaginable since the entire purpose of the foundation may well have been to enrich the Clintons while doing SOME good. I don't think any pardon should be issued for that, and it should be left to the FBI to carry this out to indictment if any, but no investigation should be carried out by the legislative branch which might imperil progress of the new administration.

If Ryan and McConnell have to bargain that to get bipartisan support, I make that deal almost every time.

60 votes in the senate and +50 D votes in the House for a wall, trade deal support and repeal/replace? AYFKM?

Her book, politically, is CLOSED. There is no value in attack on that, except justice, of course. But if she and Bill just GO AWAY, and Chelsea stays private ... I think we make a deal and move on

I have a question about pardons.

How can Obama pardon "The Dreamers"?

Does he even know the names of these people? Is it possible to pardon people for non-specific people?

"... it is a tacit admission that HE recognizes wrongdoing, ..." And precisely because that he will never do it. And she will never want it either, since it would an admission that she did something wrong. And she would never agree to that admission.
