Can they do this?
Donald Trump has won the election and liberal crybabies everywhere are losing their mind. They are now starting to realize that this country has taken a stand and has chosen to drain our government of the corruption that has been sitting there for years.
At this moment, here is a list of the crimes Hillary Clinton and her team could be charged with right now:
- Money laundering
- Child exploitation
- Sex crimes with minors (children)
- Pay to play through Clinton Foundation
- Obstruction of justice
- Other felony crimes
There’s absolutely no reason for Hillary Clinton to not be charged. The American people didn’t just fight for her to lose the election, we also fought for her to be held accountable. Obama obviously knows that President Trump will work to indict Hillary and her team of cronies because the White House has made a major announcement concerning the issue.
Fox News is reporting that White House press secretary Josh Earnest did not rule out the possibility of President Obama pardoning Hillary Clinton before he leaves office in January.
“Donald Trump during the campaign pledged to jail Hillary Clinton if he was elected over the federal investigations that are underway. Some legal experts have said President Obama could close off that opportunity if he pardons Hillary Clinton. Is that something that the president is considering doing,” a reporter asked Earnest at the daily White House press briefing.
Josh Earnst responded by indicating that:
“As you know, the president has offered clemency to a substantial amount of Americans who were previously serving time in federal prisons and we didn’t talk in advance about the president’s plans to offer clemency to any of these individuals,” Earnest replied. He added, “That’s because we don’t talk about the president’s thinking, particularly with respect to any specific cases that may apply to pardons or commutations.”
So, his refusal to answer tells you that Obama completely plans to pardon Hillary Clinton.
Why would Obama pardon her?
Obama would pardon Hillary because he is also implicated in the email scandal. Obama claimed in an interview last year that he had no knowledge about Hillary using a private email server, yet his email address came up several times.
In fact, WikiLeaks released an email showing that the Clinton camp emailed about holding off all communication to POTUS so he does not get involved in the mess.
If Obama pardons her, can President Trump do anything about it?
Yes. The legality of the situation is very tricky. Legal precedent would allow Obama to pardon Hillary prior to her being charged with a crime. Ironically, the precedent Obama could use would come from Bill Clinton. Bill granted clemency to CIA director John Deutch, who was accused of mishandling classified information, prior to any charges being filed.
While it would be difficult for Donald Trump to undo a presidential pardon of Hillary Clinton, it is possible with congressional support as well as the Supreme Court.
Republicans control all three branches of government and will be adding Conservative Justices to the Supreme Court. The only thing that will stop Hillary Clinton from being charged is Donald Trump.
If President Trump directs the FBI and DOJ to take action, she can be charged and picked up the same day he approves it.
