It’s Christmastime and it looks like President Trump has been giving out gifts that are sure to outrage bitter leftists.
He has long angered Democrats by pardoning folks they really, really hate. That has even included Rod Blagojevich, whom Democrats strung up like a scapegoat.
But this Christmas, Trump is setting a new record by pardoning over a dozen people. Including those many feel were wrongly targeted by the left.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening announced 26 new pardons, including for longtime ally Roger Stone, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s father, Charles…
The pardons of Manafort and Stone reward two of the most high-profile and widely condemned former advisers of the President, both of whom were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller, went to trial and were convicted by juries of multiple crimes.
CNN and the rest of the liberal elite are seething at how Trump’s pardoning people that were hit with process crimes in an investigation that turned up nothing on Trump.
Manafort and Stone were particularly targeted by left-wing puppet Mueller. They were caught up during his Russian collusion probe and charged for things unrelated to the scope of his investigation.
Many people believed the left was going after Trump’s allies and former staffers, simply out of spite. Others suggest Mueller and the left were trying to trap them into turning on the president. When they refused, they threw the book at them.
It’s only fair that Trump pardons these and other men wrongly targeted by bitter, power-hunger Democrats. As president, he has total authority to commute someone’s sentence or totally pardoning them, as if the convictions never happened.
That’s what really gets under the skin of Democrats. Even if someone’s sentence was commuted, they can still point to them as “criminals.”
But a pardoning erases all of that as if their attacks bounced off their backs.
Even now, Trump seeks to right the wrongs of the D.C. swamp. And he will continue to do so as long as he is president.
Do you approve of Trump using his pardoning power?
