If Hillary Clinton was ever to be arrested, her list of crimes would be so long they couldn’t all be contained in one indictment. But some people are uttering the idea of a pardon.
President Obama has made some overtures in that direction, saying that he may do it to “help the nation heal.”
Then, of course, Rev. Jesse Jackson inserted himself. Because, well, he has to stay relevant and earn those speaking fees for being a professional race baiter in a time when that seems to be a very lucrative business.
According to the Detroit Free Press:
Speaking at President Gerald Ford’s alma mater, The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon.
Stopping short of saying Clinton did anything wrong, Jackson told a large crowd of University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators gathered at daylong celebration of his career that Obama should short-circuit President-elect Donald Trump’s promised attempt to prosecute Hillary Clinton for use of a private email server.
“It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton,” Jackson said. He said issuing the pardon could help heal the nation, like Ford’s pardon of Nixon did.
“President Ford said we don’t need him for trophy. We need to move on. President Nixon wasn’t convicted of a crime. He didn’t apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country.
“Hillary Clinton has not been tried, but there are those who want to drag her for the next three years. It will not stop until they find a reason to put her in jail. That would be a travesty.”
Except the difference between what Richard Nixon did and what Hillary Clinton has done is as big as the difference between a kid stealing a candy bar compared to an armed bank robber!
