Has there ever been a case where an appeal occurred against a Presidential pardon? I just can’t think of a single case. Nor can I see how any court could order a special prosecutor, or bring charges against anyone. Maybe you could do stuff like this in Mexico or Venezuela, but this is pretty wild stuff to imagine these dimwits coming up with this idea.
Perhaps the sessions justice department isn’t asleep hmmm?
This is a big deal.
might be a first
Arapio was pardoned and the whole damn case becomes null and void and of no merit. It means it did not even happen. It should be noted when Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich (biggest tax cheat in history) as was he perfect legal right, it means, "it did not happen."
Note to advocacy groups, "GO POUND SAND."
Actually, yes, there is. It was on the matter of the pardon being valid if it is not accepted by the party for whom the pardon was granted - in that case, the Court ruled that the power of pardon was absolute, but that the pardon has to actually be accepted by the receiving party to be valid. That is certainly not an issue in this case.
