    Trump issued corrupt pardons to more undeserving swamp dwellers with no doubt more to come.

    Two people who lied under oath to protect him.

    Three corrupt ex Congresspeople who endorsed him. One sentenced for insider trading and two for misuse of campaign funds. One of these very fine people used campaign funds for, among other things, vacations with several mistresses and air travel for his pet rabbit.

    Four Blackwater contractors convicted for massacring Iraqi civilians after they opened fire at people stuck in a traffic jam, killing 17. Surviving relatives were brought to the US to testify about the murders. Military officers talked of the harm done the United States by these murderers. But Blackwater's head honcho is brother of Trump secretary of no education Betsy DeVos, one of a few cabinet members who managed to stick around for four years while doing nothing.

    All the best people.

    Meanwhile he is moving at breakneck speed to execute as many people as possible before being booted out of office. Poor black men and an abused woman. People with no connections or powerful friends.

    Trump is doing his best to completely dip his legacy in dogshit on his way out...this pardoning of traitors and murderers is just him saying...hey....I'm letting the white people kill a few muslims.....why should they live in prison for that? Piece of shit Trump is doing what pieces of shit do.

    Anyone as eager as I am to hear what bizarro rationalization @MARIS61 comes up with to excuse the pardon of these dirtbags? I’ll put $5 on him calling them “patriots”...........

    Justice Department guidelines on pardons state that the person seeking a pardon should take responsibility for his/her acts and show remorse. The criminals Trump pardoned, including the ones today, were the opposite, all insisted they did nothing wrong.

    Many of the unconnected people he has been rushing to execute did express deep remorse but they never did anything for Trump so he doesn't owe them anything.

    I'm sorry, but the free air travel for the pet rabbit warms my heart. I am fine with that pardon.

    Can’t defend any of Trump’s pardons, especially the Blackwater ones. Those dudes should probably just hang.

    Also, David Frum is LITERALLY the guy who wrote all those Bush speeches that lied us into the VERY SAME WAR where Blackwater committed those atrocities. David Frum literally put Blackwater in Iraq. The fact he has the gall to speak authoritatively on anything whatsoever is absolutely mind blowing. He himself should be sitting in prison without pardon. His propaganda killed a million people.

    Source: Microsoft News: I saved at least 8 Republican Senators, including Mitch, from losing in the last Rigged (for President) Election. Now they (almost all) sit back and watch me fight against a crooked and vicious foe, the Radical Left Democrats. I will NEVER FORGET!

    I think he is beyond delusional.

    He's a textbook sociopathic narcissist.....when they lie so much that it becomes a distorted reality to themselves...his niece Mary was absolutely spot on correct in diagnosing his mental illness

    Michael Cohen predicts Trump's pardon spree could 'ultimately be his downfall' because his allies can't invoke the Fifth Amendment and could be forced to testify against him
    • Cohen has predicted how the last few weeks of Trump's presidency will play out
    • 'That's when he'll probably try to drop the pardon power for Jared, Don, Ivanka, Eric, Allen Weisselberg [Trump Organization CFO],' Cohen said Monday
    • He said pardons could produce 'significant problem' for Trump since a person is no longer able to invoke the Fifth Amendment once they receive pardon
    • 'So all of these people may ultimately be his downfall,' Cohen added, 'simply because they’ll be testifying against him, either for a court or a tribunal'
