When people look at Nancy Pelosi and they see the normal run of the mill hateful stuff that she does on a daily basis, they don’t realize the full situation at hand.
For those of us that claim to love the Constitution so damn much, many of us have never actually read it past the parts that apply to us most directly.
Nancy Pelosi, if something were to happen to President Trump and Vice President Pence would become President. Think about that one.
While she is the 2nd in line to the Presidency, should something happen to President Trump, we have this little thing little line in the Constitution, located in Article II, Section 2 of the document.
We will talk a little more about this later, and on the off chance you are reading this Ms. P., you may want to pay close attention, this is not the first time you seem to have misunderstood the foundation of the laws of our nation …
Nancy Pelosi claims that Democrats will offer up legislation to limit the pardon power of US Presidents.
Yeah, so, there is just one little issue with her plan … and while the Supreme Court seems to have lost their copy, we are still living under the United States Constitution & the trouble with Nancy’s alleged plan is found in Article II, Section 2, Clause 1, which clearly states:
Clause 1: Command of military; Opinions of cabinet secretaries; Pardons–
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
Seeing as Roger Stone was merely a private citizen who was influential in electing the first President of the United States not under the control of the ‘powers that be,’ (in my lifetime at least) and not an elected or appointed official, who was impeached, the President, and the President alone, is granted the power over pardons and commutations.
The irony of Pelosi being so outraged that Stone will not be sent to prison, likely to die (either at the hands of the Disease Not To Be Mentioned or … ‘suicide’) lies in how few times President Trump has used the power thus far, as well as who his predecessor used the power to bust free.
