A New York lawyer appealed to Lame Duck President Obama Wednesday in a New York Daily News opinion piece to pardon the pear-shaped former so-called secretary of state and other "potential targets" of an investigation into her illegal email server.
Bobby Begleiter, a former assistant US attorney in the Eastern District of New York wrote that the Constitution allows a president to pardon someone who has not been charged with a crime, including espionage which endangers the nation.
In spite of the fact that Trump said he will not investigate the incompetent, arrogant shrew he referred to as "Crooked Hillary," even though his supporters are still chanting "Lock her up, lock her up," Begleiter worries that Hillary can end up in the slammer.
"I don't want to hurt the Clintons, I really don't," Mr. Trump told 'reporters' at The New York Times, shortly after the election. "She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I'm not looking to hurt them at all." The campaign was vicious."
Bobby wasn't comfortable with Trump's statement. He didn't want to gamble with his woman's freedom, just in case she said something Trump didn't like and changed his mind. Bobby even called it "sideways" to believe that a person who accepted a pardon is admitting guilt.
But if she is innocent, then why does she need to be pardoned? Pardoned from what? For what?
In an attempt to sound learned, Bobby wrote that a pardon for Crooked Hillary could, in the words of Alexander Hamilton, "restore tranquility to the commonwealth."
In a word, Bobby Begleiter is a Clinton apologist and the only tranquility he's interested in restoring is Clinton's fear of being rightfully jailed for treason.
John Crudele, of the New York Post, a fairly far left-leaning paper, wrote that Obama is fast to forgive traitors, felons, deserters and basic scum of the earth--he just didn't say it in those words--and commuted the sentences of over a thousand incarcerated scum. But, he said, Obama doesn't like Hillary very much and the email scandal put him in an "embarrassing" position, which is even more important to him than anything else in the world.
"But the best reason for not giving a pardon is simple: Obama doesn't really know what kind of trouble Hillary might be in. And she would have to admit to things she might not be ready to reveal to get completely out of trouble," Crudele wrote.
I hope Trump doesn't let her off the hook--part of the reason he got elected was due to his tough stance on Clinton and to allow her to skate free of the charges, is a real injustice.
