  • Pardon Michael Flynn. Time for the President to end this highly politicized prosecution.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 10, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    The prosecution of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has already exposed the bad faith of the FBI and Justice Department in pursuing him even when they knew there was no basis for an investigation. Now federal Judge Emmet Sullivan is continuing the legal torture by appealing an order from a panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to drop the charges. President Trump should step in now and end this farce by pardoning Mr. Flynn. In an honest process, Judge Sullivan would have signed off on dropping charges once prosecutors and the defense agreed there is no case...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said there should be a law to curb President Trump's pardon power. During an interview with CNN host Anderson Cooper, Pelosi called Trump's commutation of former aide Roger Stone "appalling." The California Democrat also said she recommends passing a law that would prevent the president from exercising his constitutional power if the person being pardoned is politically connected to him. "For the president to be able to issue a pardon on the basis of a crime that the person committed assisting the president is ridiculous, and there ought to be a law," Pelosi began. "And I’m...

    Clint Lorance had been in charge of his platoon for only three days when he ordered his men to kill three Afghans stopped on a dirt road. A second-degree murder conviction and pardon followed. Today, Lorance is hailed as a hero by President Trump and conservative media. His troops are still haunted by his crimes....

    We reported on May 30th the recent riots in Democrat-led cities around the country were coordinated and related to three main groups: 1) US based Islamist Organizations, 2) Domestic terrorists, and 3) Others related to the Democrat Party. Today we uncover a fourth major contributor, a Clinton pardoned member of the Weather Underground, Susan Rosenberg. There clearly was no reason for the mass riots taking place around the country after the death of the individual at the hands of the police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Everyone who saw the police brutality was appalled and outraged at the sight of the policeman...

    Just in case you were wondering, if Joe Biden is elected president in November he will not pardon President Trump. He promises he will not do that. What he doesn’t say is for what charge(s) Trump would request a pardon.It’s a comment Joe Biden made during Lawrence O’Donnell’s MSNBC show, The Last Word Thursday when a voter asked him if he would pardon Trump “under the pretense of healing the nation.” He doesn’t want Biden to “pull a Gerald Ford”, you see. So Biden, who is running under the pretense that he wants to unify the country, said no,...

    Judge appointed a private attorney, retired judge, to continue prosecution of Trump's former National Security Advisor It was a shocker on Wednesday afternoon. In the political persecution of General Michael Flynn, Judge Emett Sullivan launched new criminal charges against Flynn under his own authority. President Trump must stop this further politicization by pardoning Michael Flynn of these new charges of contempt of court. To recap, which matters, the charges against Flynn were withdrawn on May 7, 2020. The new interim U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Timothy Shea filed a motion to dismiss the case in the U.S. District...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he would not pardon President Donald Trump if elected and insisted any prosecutorial decisions would be left to a more independent Justice Department. Answering questions in a virtual town hall-style event on MSNBC Thursday, the Democratic presidential hopeful was asked by a voter about whether he’d follow the lead of former President Gerald Ford, who pardoned Richard Nixon in large part to help the nation move beyond the Watergate scandal. Biden, while not speaking to any specific potential charge, committed to ensuring that any prosecutorial decisions would be dictated by the law,...

    In his brief order Tuesday, Sullivan quoted his fellow judge on the D.C. District Court, Amy Berman Jackson, who previously admonished the parties in the Stone case that allowing amicus submissions does not mean that the criminal case will become a "free for all." Flynn's case, however, has sometimes seemed like just that. In a fireworks-filled sentencing hearing in December 2018, for example, Sullivan himself appeared open to the idea that Flynn could be charged with a death penalty-eligible offense. "I'm not hiding my disgust, my disdain for this criminal offense," Sullivan said during that hearing. He added that Flynn's...

    Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano reacted with outrage on Thursday to FBI documents that show officials discussed their motivations for interviewing Michael Flynn in the White House in January 2017 — and openly questioned if their "goal" was "to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired." Napolitano told “Fox & Friends” that any person who believes that the “laws should be applied fairly should be utterly scandalized and outraged” by the FBI’s scheme to set up the then-national security adviser to be prosecuted. “Whether they like him or not, whether he’s guilty...

    Roger Stone on Friday night said he believes he will die in jail unless he’s pardoned by President Donald Trump. Stone, a longtime friend and former adviser to Trump, was sentenced on Feb. 20 to three years and four months in prison. Stone was convicted on charges including lying to a congressional committee that was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Stone in recent weeks moved for a new trial, pointing out anti-Trump social media posts made by the jury forewoman, and tried getting the presiding judge to recuse herself after she praised the “integrity” of the jurors....

How convenient. I am strongly considering a Full Pardon!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/23/20 | F.H. Buckley
    President Trump has taken some criticisms for the pardons he recently issued, so let’s take a look at one of them: Michael Milken. In 1990, Milken pleaded guilty to a technical securities offense, for which he was pardoned on Tuesday. Milken was an outsider who took on a cozy establishment, beat them at their own game, and then was chewed up and spit out by a shameful criminal law system. His pardon was well-deserved. Milken came from a humble background. As a nerdy Jewish teenager, he attended a public high school in Encino, California, and his rise was a great...

    A longtime associate of Roger Stone is urging a federal judge not to send him to prison following the right-wing political operative's conviction on seven counts of lying to Congress and witness tampering. Randy Credico, an activist and radio host who's known Stone for years, was on the receiving end of the witness tampering. Evidence introduced by prosecutors during trial showed Stone repeatedly — and often with vulgar language — threatened Credico to not cooperate with a congressional investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. But in a letter to D.C. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama...
