He may ask Trump, Ryan, and McConnell, "What will you give me if I don't pardon Hillary, and let her become the gift that keeps on giving?"

He can issue a pardon for any unspecified crimes from the date of the pardon.

Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitutionwhich states that the President "shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment ..." meaning that he can pardon any such, known and unknown, to the date of the pardon.

Though I'm 100% behind imprisonment for both her and her treasonous husband, I'd grudgingly settle for all of their racketeering money seized from them.

Pardoned for what offenses? NOBODY has admitted she did any wrong.

Is it me, or has starkey just unzipped his fly and revealed his micro penis? He and along with the rest of them have maintained that she has done nothing to be pardoned for.

Hey starkey, the girl below has a little message for you.

oky, thank you for admitting that you have no idea about this. Here you go.

"In 1866, the Supreme Court ruled in Ex parte Garland that the pardon power "extends to every offence known to the law, and may be exercised at any time after its commission, either before legal proceedings are taken, or during their pendency, or after conviction and judgment." (In that case, a former Confederate senator successfully petitioned the court to uphold a pardon that prevented him from being disbarred.) Generally speaking, once an act has been committed, the president can issue a pardon at any time—regardless of whether charges have even been filed."

Can President Bush pardon people who haven't even been charged with a crime?

Clinton is finished. Obama will see what he can get in return for a pardon or not from the GOP leadership.

So another example of where the court got it wrong. Under our system you are innocent until proven guilty in a court. The innocent can't be pardoned because there is nothing to pardon. At this point they aren't even contemplating charges.

I know how you feelz, but what counts is what is reelz.

Obama can issue a blanket pardon to Clinton if he so wishes, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

It's a tough one. Obama could do it, but does the bulldyke want it? If she is pardoned it's like acknowledging she should or could probably face charges. Her brand has been incredibly harmed, so does she want the opportunity to "clear" her name? I think for her sake, she is better getting a pardon from BO rather than Trump. Trump will look dignified by showing leniency, BO will appear as a protector.

He can only pardon her for acts she has committed before the pardon. He can't give her immunity against anything she does in the future however.

That is correct, for everything right up to the day of the pardon.

I'm fine with Trump pardoning hiLIARy on the condition that the Clinton Foundation is shut down and any remaining funds are either returned to the donors, or directed to a real charity selected by the Trump Administration.

Let's move beyond the unseemly Clinton era and focus on undoing Obama and hiLIARy's damage to our country.
