while I do not agree with what Trump did, I can see the logic behind it. Pardon the Democrats and then when you pardon your own people, the democrats can't cry foul.https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-to-commute-sentence-of-ex-gov-blagojevich-pardon-kerik
Donald Trump granted clemency to Former Democrat Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
Drain the swamp?
You obviously didn't read many of the posts or know that blago is a dem as was stated in a few posts.Well after some of the responses, it's ok because Rod was a Republican and well screw the dems.
And here I thought we were draining the swamp. Factually it's more about how petty we can be to the other party, right?
Disgusting overreach on power.
Seven 'mistakes'. Seven of who knows how many with enough evidence to convince a jury of his peers. As for the rest, if there is sufficient evidence to convict them, then I hope they are convicted too.How many pardons did old BJ sell on his last day? It cost like $80,000 a year to keep people in prison. What's the likely hood Rod is going to take more bribes - not real high.
I could care less if he pardons Roger Stone - what did he do exactly - perhaps made a mistake while talking to the FIB who were conduction an illegal investigation based of lies paid for by Hasbeen Hilarity. Mean while all the folks that deceived the FISA court by lying about "Steal" Document are walking around free.
Put the Coup Klutz Clan in prison for while.
A jury of his peers? You don't say.... a jury of his peers.
https://heavy.com/news/2020/02/tomeka-hart/Former Memphis City Schools Board President Tomeka Hart revealed Wednesday that she was the foreperson of the jury that convicted former Trump adviser Roger Stone on obstruction charges last year -- and soon afterward, her history of Democratic activism and a string of her anti-Trump, left-wing social media posts came to light.
Sounds like a peer of his to me. :thumb:A jury of his peers? You don't say.
If this isn't enough to get Stone a new trial, there is no justice.
As far as Blagojevich goes - maybe he can now just go away. Doesn't anybody get tired of hearing about people that you really don't give two ****s about?

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/judge-andrew-napolitano-an-american-nightmare... on a quiet residential street at 6 in the morning, the neighborhood exploded in light, noise and terror. Seventeen SUVs and two armored vehicles arrived in front of one house. Each vehicle had sirens blaring and lights flashing. The house, which abutted a canal, was soon surrounded by 29 government agents, each wearing military garb, each carrying a handgun and most carrying high-powered automatic rifles.
In the canal were two amphibious watercrafts, out of which more heavily armed government agents came. Circling above all this was a helicopter equipped with long-range precision weaponry and high-powered spotlights.
Four agents approached the front door to the house. Two held a battering ram, and two pointed their rifles at the door. One of the agents shouted and banged on the front door until the terrified owner of the house emerged, barefoot and wearing shorts and a T-shirt. He was greeted in the dark at his open front door by two rifle barrels aimed at his head.
Can't you just imagine the **** STORM if ms. tomeka had been subjected to a fraction of the abuse that Roger Stone endured?
Peers? not even in your wildest wet dream.
If he had even twitched, he would be dead.
