According to this news article from FOX Comey has been fired and it might look like Lynch is next for meeting Bill on the plane. Well all the conspiracy theorists on ATS have been calling it right all along. This is getting very interesting as Trump said that what they had on Hilliary was enough to stop her from even running in the first place.....Obama had better make sure his ink doesn't run out in his pen. Because it looks like the list of Pardons just got a lot longer.
Lets hope that the writing is on the wall for the naughty people and they just go with dignity. vwww.youtube.com...

Obama seems to be waiting until the last possible minute to sign the most controversial pardons, only 18 hours until he is kicked to the curb.

Well he can't pardon someone who hasn't been convicted so they better hurry up and convict if he's going to pardon anyone.

ETA: this statement is false

Where does any law say that?

EDIT:
Constitution Article II, Section 2
and he shall have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

yes he can,

Nixon was never charged or convicted of a crime but Ford pardoned him.

Wait? Who has been added to a pardon list?

I stand corrected


The president enjoys broad executive authority on pardons. It’s his call. If President Obama wants to pardon Clinton, he can do it, even if she doesn’t request the pardon.

According to Politico, Obama could pardon Clinton “for any federal offenses she may have committed or could ever be prosecuted for.”

One expert, attorney Samuel T. Morison, told The Charlotte Observer, “The only constraint is that he can’t pardon someone in advance of committing the offense.

That last minute pardon list is going to be fun to see. Can he do group pardons like. "I pardon the whole FBI for any crimes they may have committed"?

Except that pardoning someone who hasn't been convicted is exactly what Ford did to Nixon after the Watergate scandal.

Obama had better make sure his ink doesn't run out in his pen.


Except that he has the autopen to do his work for him:


Barack Obama was the first American President to use the autopen to sign a bill into law, which he first did on May 26, 2011 when he authorized an extension of the Patriot Act from France. And now he’s used it again to approve the fiscal cliff deal from more than 4,800 miles away and, in so doing, has returned the autopen to the national spotlight.


So if he's used it to sign bills into law, who's to say he won't use to it sign pardons?

The AG and FBI director change with every administration, and usually during it too. Like I said all along, Comey did what he did because he knew there would be zero repercussions. Either Trump or Clinton would have replaced him.

Does this video actually say that Comey is fired?
I can't watch it right now, but I see nothing on the news about this, and I would think it would be a big story.

he might have to sign a pardon, leaving the persons name blank, and make thousands of copies and hand them out and let the people fill in their name in the blank.

The autopen. It's the stuff conspiracy theories are made of.

I see now that he can do it. But above it says offenses against the United states. To me it seems like they should at least have to be charged with something. I guess it's open to interpretation.

It's actually a fascinating case. Three months ago, the Obama Administration pardoning Holder, Lynch, three Clintons, and half of his cabinet would have been a huge scandal.

The reason is conviction or not, pardon means crime. Pardon means "forgiveness for transgressions". By accepting the pardons all involved would have had to admitted they were guilty of the crimes.

Now that Trump has won the election (and the media has had three months to run a campaign), the pardons are instead a defense against a vengeful victor. No admittance of guilt whatsoever, but rather a further weapon to be used to beat Trump as a would be dictator.

Actually attacking Trump with their own crimes in broad daylight. It's brilliant when you look at it.


We'll know tomorrow at least. All conjecture at this point.

Not when you think in legalese


HUGE difference between: charges, crimes, allegations, offenses, convictions, etc.

Whole cases can hinge on one word being wrong.
