Maybe a pardon before conviction? The white house isn't ruling it out. Hows that work?

Maybe this will be similar to the Ford pardon of Nixon to spare the country the anguish of the trial of an American President. Oh the horror.



The White House isn’t ruling out the possibility of Hillary Clinton receiving a last-minute pardon from President Obama — even though she hasn’t been charged with a crime.

Asked at Wednesday’s press briefing whether Obama had considered utilizing his unique executive power, press secretary Josh Earnest was cryptic.

“The president has offered clemency to a substantial number of Americans who were previously serving time in federal prisons,” Earnest said.

“And we didn’t talk in advance about the president’s plans to offer clemency to any of those individuals and that’s because we don’t talk about the president’s thinking, particularly with respect to any specific cases that may apply to pardons or commutations,” he added.

Clinton has been embroiled in a lengthy FBI investigation into her private email server.

There are also reports that the feds are investigating the Clinton Foundation.

No charges have been filed against Clinton.

But when President Gerald Ford pardoned his predecessor, Richard Nixon, in 1974, it was for any crimes Nixon might have committed against the US while he was president.

Ford justified his decision by claiming that a long, drawn-out trial would only have further polarized the nation.

During the presidential campaign, President-elect Donald Trump said he’d appoint a “special prosecutor” to handle the matter — and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway suggested Wednesday the matter was still on the table.

How can you pardon someone who has not been convicted of anything.

Would sound like an admittance of guilt to me if they have to pardon her. And for what? Emails or foundation?

There are so many potential charges.

There is no such thing as blanket immunity.

I'll bet there are 100's let out of jail.

If you got the money...They will be selling pardons.

Only if she is threatening to take Obama down with her. He seems to want to distance his legacy from her tarnish, pardoning her is the opposite of that.

If there is collusion involved in covering up crimes, a future Trump appointed Supreme Court could rule Obama unable to pardon her. Trial of the century will be teasing us for a long time to come.

Pardon her for what???
Hillary has not been indicted for anything her entire life...

If she is indicted and convicted between now and January 20 I'm sure he will pardon her but you can't write a "get out of jail free card" for someone…

Example: If Im Obama, I can't pardon you for murder and then you murder your wife and nothing happens to you…
That's not how pardons work..

He could grant immunity from prosecution, with the stipulation that she would cooperate with any interrogation questions going forward that are "unresolved".

I think it is a little extreme to want to put the Presidential nominee of the losing party in jail. Hillary has been investigated twice and cleared twice. Now Trump wants to investigate her again. He probably will. It reminds me of the birther scandal.

I have my doubts that he'll actually follow through on this threat.

I hope he doesn't, not because I feel for Hillary, but because I think it sets a third-world type of tone to start off your presidency trying to jail your opponent, and it also starts off his presidency on an outwardly divisive note.

I'd like Trump to be successful, and I don't think this move is good for him.

Not so sure that would be worth the paper it's written on.

I think he will not go after her. Kind of a start fresh thing.

It would be seen as tacky to seek jail time.

She's almost 70, maybe we should let it go...

No he can't...that's not even close to reality

President Obama could not say Hillary Clinton is immune from prosecution of treason…
If so, Hillary could sell state secrets to the world and the DOJ would be unable to pursue charges against her…
That is not how pardons work...

Hey this is the Clintons-Obama. Next question.

There is an ongoing investigation by the FBI into the Clinton Foundation. Seems pretty odd to immunize someone before the entire scope of a potential crime has been investigated exposed...especially if it involves national security.

Consider this rhetoric a premonition wrapped in symbolic gesture.

LOL

No, he couldn't.

You can pardon someone from a criminal act they've been convicted of. You can't pardon someone when they haven't been charged, and even if Obama could do that, there's far too many potential charges a Trump administration could seek.

I frankly expect more and more leaks to continue to spill out about Hillary and the entire DOJ/FBI given an honest day in court is suddenly far more likely.

Yeah. that was amazing that they would present a forged birth cert, and now Loretta Fuddy, the follower of Mohammad Subuh Sumihadiwojojo ( Pictured below) is dead. The only one that drown in a plane accident. She just went under all of a sudden, how quaint!
Gee! I wonder who Baracks mom ( Stanley Ann) had sex with while she was in Indonesia following Subud........ LOL

I do not think she would ever be charged with treason. Too harsh.
Perhaps security violations in line with position. I do not see her as an intentional criminal, rather lack of professional diligence in the handling of classified material. There is a big difference.
