    It's interesting to see the topics that motivate Brad to post.

    Just to refresh the selective memories, here is an article from the very conservative Politico:

    He served 35 years in prison. Whether you agree with commutation or not, you do have to acknowledge he served 35 years in prison as opposed to the 28 he would have served if Obama had commuted his sentence early. It's fine if you want to make a big deal about someone staying in prison until he's 74 as opposed to 94, but let's not claim this equivalent to Trump.

    yes, i had to refresh my memory on that and agree that i don't/didn't see the rational for that pardon either.

    having said that, outrage for that should present outrage for these pardons, no?

    Just to try and be clear, Rivera (and Manning) was not pardoned but granted clemency.

    Also, interesting wording earlier in the interview:

    Look, the one thing I have found, this has gone on for more than a year. Millions of dollars has been spent. The White House has been cooperating all the way through. This was all based upon, was there collusion involved in the election? Everyone who has looked at this says there is no collusion going forward.
    He uses the phrase "no collusion going forward" again later in the interview, so it's clearly a planned talking point. Pathetic.

    Try telling your spouses there's "no affairs going forward" and see how they take it.

    If you were wondering why Trump randomly pardoned Jack Johnson, there's your answer.

    He’s not going to be impeached especially not by Republicans.
