    No low to low for a man who openly admires and seeks to emulate dictators and authoritarians.

    Our military has standards and codes. It is professional and strict. Something our enemies typically lack. Trump seems to want them to emulate our enemies. No surprise.

    Trump may pardon US soldiers accused or convicted of war crimes – report

    Legal experts cited in the report said pardoning several accused and convicted war criminals, including some who have not yet gone to trial, has not been done in recent history. Some worried such pardons could erode the legitimacy of military law.

    Trump has already pardoned a convicted murderer; why not pardon more murderers?

    Makes perfect sense for TrumpAssHole.

    So much better when Clinton was getting paid to pardon criminals right? In this case the men were convicted not because what they did was so bad but because it wasn't PC.

    The linked piece is long on vagary, innuendo, and hyperventilation, short on case specifics.

    Targeting and murdering unarmed civilians has nothing to do with PC.

    No. From what I hear, he doesn't really care for Obama, or the Clintons. Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch, Holder, and several other criminals are NOT on his Christmas card list!
