Well, I am tempted to just say that if Jesse Jackson says Hillary Clinton should be pardoned...that in itself is probably a good reason to keep digging...but let's have a look at the exact reasons he says she should be given a free pass.


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.


What set of moral standards or moral code, dear Reverend, would investigating alleged criminal behaviour (let's not forget the ongoing Clinton Foundation corruption probe) by one of the nation's highest ranking "public servants", and then indicting if it is deemed that criminal charges are waranted...would this violate?

Under what system of morality is it preferable to turn a blind eye to "alleged" rampant criminal betrayal of the public trust, and putting the nation's security at risk for personal convenience and gain? Please do tell...


"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."


Let me get this straight. As so many of her followers have crowed for so long...she is innocent of any wrongdoing, because she has not been charged or convicted of any of the crimes she is suspected of having committed (fair enough in one sense...innocent until proven guilty). And/but, according to Jackson, if eventually she is tried and found to be guilty of criminal offences it would be a "travesty" for her to have to actually suffer a consequence for her misdeeds.

So, she is innocent under the law now, but if she were to be found guilty, she should not be punished. Why?

Because she came within a hair of being able to pardon herself?
Because she is a Democrat, and she will no longer be shielded from prosecution by a Democratic Administration?
Because if they continue to pick at this scab...sooner or later the full extent, height, width and breadth of the corruption will become public knowledge - and will likely reach all the way to the White House and beyond?

Under what system of justice, is it a "travesty" to punish high Government officials who use their public offices for personal profit, and/or lie to Congress and the American people, and/or destroy files and documents that are under a Congressional Subpoena - to send a message to all politicians to follow, that this behaviour will not be tolerated, and will be punished?


Students "are growing up in an America that is in an identity crisis," Jackson said. "These demonstrations are born out of fear. Fear that the Klan will ride again. Fear that violence (against minorities) is coming back.


Seriously Jessie, people are protesting the election of a Republican President because they fear that the KKK (an organization created by the Democratic Party) will ride again?

I realize that he makes his living playing the race card, and pitting African Americans against non-African Americans. But, this KKK stuff is really very weak...and if he truly wants to make students feel safe and secure, he ought to knock off telling scary stories.

Jeese Jackson...Pardons for Criminals is the Moral Way...and Run, Here Comes the KKK!

Yay, a lecture on racism from a guy that would spit in white people's food when he worked in a restaurant.

I knew a guy that worked for him in the late 90's. Said he was a jerk. I remember one story where he said Jesse took off his coat and handed it to him. The coat rack was 1ft away. A bunch of stories like that he told me. By the time he quit he went from being proud of Jesse and working for him to extreme hatred for the man.

I disagree. Pardoning Clinton would be tactic admission of guilt on Hillary's part. And even if the law doesn't see it that way, all the Hillary haters will. At this point she should just let them throw everything at her they can and if she is truly as innocent as she claims (or there really isn't enough evidence to pursue a case as Comey claimed) then she'll have no worries. But capitulating the Right's concerns by pardoning her is the wrong answer and will forever tarnish her in the history books with no way to remove that mark.

No one looks at the Nixon pardon and states that he was actually innocent.

Well good lord Jesse, doesn't she have to be found guilty, or even accused for the president to pardon her?

Let's hope Obama is out of office before that happens. And Mister Jackson retires. From whatever the heck it is he actually does.

My question is, what would he pardon her for? She hasn't been charged with anything (yet). Can you just give out a pardon as a Cover someones behind or a just in case?

Not that I support Hillary but does one not have to be at least charged..perhaps convicted first?

I do want to say Jesse is a complete idiot that profits from racism. So keep in mind if we all get along he'd be out of work.

Jesse still has people listening to him?

After Rainbow Push?

After everything else, this buffoon still can manage to get himself in front of a camera and microphone with these inane babblings?

Good grief, Charlie Brown!

Of course he is going to his go to play of crying, "racism!" He really is a one trick pony.

Oh, and if Hillary is pardoned, Obama has to issue pardons to specific offenses, so we would then know what it was she got away with, he can't just say you're free and clear of anything that might be found.

Obama should pardon Hillary Clinton


Shouldn't she have to beg before she receives a pardon from the rose garden...

Obama won't be pardoning Hillary. For one, it's not just her. He would have to pardon her entire staff. Not going to happen. Then all the FOIA civil lawsuits which a pardon won't even matter. Those do not involve crimes. People want money for damages like reporters trying to earn a living off of information they are entitled to under the law.

Obama also does not like Hillary. He stuck her in a corner at the SD.

I think what Jesse Jackson really meant to say is to disregard Hillary Clinton.

No pardon. Charges with a trial as promised. She deserves justice just as much as her victims, or vindication.

not shocking this tw@t would run his mouth.

... Trump needs to hurry and get a solid team together and get her as$ in jail asap.

make an example out of her, prosecute to the fullest extent for their crimes against humanity.

the question is, why was someone who needed to be pardoned for what is basically running her own 'government' be allowed to run for president.?
smh
get rid of their evil once and for good.

Exactly what may have been the "Comey Ploy" .The pressure that he was under to prosecute by Congress while Obama was still President . Knowing if he did , his career was over and Obama would just pardon Hillary. Thus making all that work come to naught. In his first little speech he as much as outlined , to Congress , the case against her . Then did the famous "intent" lines. He knew full well that intent did not have to happen. That was his first stall. Then Chaffetz (sp) put the heat on him again. Then the case was reopened. And although the first 150,000 emails had been investigated for over a year , the "new set" of 600000+ was gone over in 8 days. Comey's next stall. Come January 20th , Obama cannot pardon anyone , including himself , Is it possible Comey set the stage for Trump ?

Jesse Jackson is proof that you can still be dumb as a box of rocks and get airtime, followers, and get paid.
