So that's cronyism, O.K., would Clinton's pardon of Marc Rich be Crony Capitalism??

Thanks
Randy
YES, Crony capitalism is not party dependent, it is called accountability, NOBODY should get a free ride, and two wrongs still don't make a right.

The lefties on this forum are certainly stewing. :D

"Only on the left would we see the presidential pardon of a non-violent drug offender, a cause that up until now has been a Sorosian shibboleth, greeted with grumbles.

Why? Because President Trump took the initiative to get it done, hearing of the 63 year-old grandmother's plight from big-name celebrity Kim Kardashian. The left loathes Trump more than they value that woman and the cause she represents, so a good deed suddenly becomes a bad deed.
Here's how the left and its media minions took it, starting with the Guardian:

On Wednesday, Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother who has spent over 20 years in prison for non-violent drug crimes. It’s the sort of pardon decision previous presidents might well have made, but his likely reason for doing so was uniquely Trumpian. He was lobbied last week by the reality star Kim Kardashian to release Johnson.

Trump has pardoned slightly fewer people than most recent presidents at this stage of presidency, but there is a theme to those he has deemed worthy of clemency. Most were considered by Trump as being unfairly persecuted by the “deep state”. They have been found, by FBI and DoJ investigations, to have obstructed justice, given false statements to investigators, or broken campaign finance.

Many have suggested that Trump is using his pardons as a tool in the Mueller investigation.

Ah, so it’s not about mercy to correct an injustice, it's just all about the Russia Russia Russia thang.

Oh, and tilt your head for this one, the Guardian helpfully adds:"

There are reports there are another 110? NON VIOLENT mandatory sentenced to life without parole, drug offenders in federal prison, but don't share the same photo op metrics with a Kim, not a lot to celebrate here, IMO.

So today Trump basks(?) in his adulation of pardoning AJ, and now moves on as Draft evader in Chief to pardon a deceased, long accused Vietnam war Conscientious objector, Mohammad Ali, who if alive today, I suspect would reject DTs continuing PR stunt outright, as a man of principle. =D>
