In yet another effort to keep Trump from pursuing charges against Hillary, Rev. Jesse Jackson called on Obama to giver her a “full blanket pardon” in order to heal the divides that currently plague our nation. Of course Jackson believes Hillary has done nothing wrong and “It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton.”
Why don’t we put that before Bernie supporters after Hillary cheated him out of the Democrat Nomination?. Not only does Jackson want a pardon, he wants a FULL BlANKET pardon meaning, EVERYONE involved with Hillary and her criminal activity will be let off the hook. That definitely sounds like a healing moment for our country. No thanks.
Either way there is one problem with this idea, you can’t pardon someone that has not yet been indicted for a crime,unless Jackson knows something we don’t. Let’s hope the FBI or the NYPD have something up their sleeve for after Obummer leaves office.
Detroit Free Press reports:
Speaking at President Gerald Ford’s alma mater, The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon.
Stopping short of saying Clinton did anything wrong, Jackson told a large crowd of University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators gathered at daylong celebration of his career that Obama should short-circuit President-elect Donald Trump’s promised attempt to prosecute Hillary Clinton for use of a private e-mail server.
“It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton,” Jackson said. He said issuing the pardon could help heal the nation, like Ford’s pardon of Nixon did.
“President Ford said we don’t need him for trophy. We need to move on. President Nixon wasn’t convicted of a crime. He didn’t apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country.
“Hillary Clinton has not been tried, but there are those who want to drag her for the next three years. It will not stop until they find a reason to put her in jail. That would be a travesty.”
