Nice. Practice pardon for similar charges the members of the Trump Crime Family are like to be charged with. Get people used to pardons for obstruction, etc.

[abcnews.go.com]

"President Donald Trump is poised to pardon Scooter J. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, according to sources familiar with the president’s thinking.

The president has already signed off on the pardon, which is something he has been considering for several months, sources told ABC News.

The move would mark another controversial pardon for Trump and could raise questions as an increasing number of the president’s political allies have landed themselves in legal jeopardy. The White House has repeatedly said that no pardons are currently on the table for people caught up in the Russia investigation."



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

It's also a signal for defendants not to flip on him because he'll pardon them.

I don't even think his best friends would put their lives in his tiny hands.

Trumpo just wants everyone to know that obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI is OK and not a big deal for those that are loyal to him.

He probably thinks that Pence is going to do the same for him. Who does he think he is, Nixon? (Let me think about that for a moment)

Sam, has the Republican party ever been for everything you believe in?

I don't agree with everything the Dems do either, but we can't expect perfect matches. I've looked at the entirety of what the parties stand for (moreso based on their actions rather than their rhetoric) and made my choice. To my view, the Trump Republican party has become a train wreck.
