Will Obama Pardon Hillary Before Leaving Office?

A lot of us figured this was coming, but now the mainstream media is predicting the obvious in print.

In a piece by contributor David Weisberg over at The Hill, he declares that Obama will make sure to pardon Hillary Clinton “for any violations of federal law she might have committed while she was secretary of state.”

Weisberg writes:

We should first note that the Obama administration’s decision not to prosecute Mrs. Clinton would not bind the Trump administration. Until relevant statutes of limitations have expired, she could still be prosecuted by the new administration. It is possible in my opinion for Clinton to be prosecuted for either her improper handling of classified information on “home brew,” or allegations of “pay to play” arrangements between the secretary of state and donors to the Clinton Foundation, which could constitute bribery.

The statute of limitations for most federal crimes is five years from the commission of the offense; that would apply to the two categories relevant to Mrs. Clinton. Her tenure as secretary of state ended Feb. 1, 2013, so it is possible that the statute of limitations will not run until Feb. 1, 2018, more than a year after Mr. Trump takes office.

Apparently, however, there is legal precedent for the acceptance of a pardon being equal to an admission of guilt. It was established by a 1915 U.S. Supreme Court case, Burdick v. U.S. which has never been overturned. In other words, if Hillary takes the pardon, she’s admitting she committed at least one crime she committed and needs to be pardoned for.

Then again, is it even likely Trump is actually going to prosecute Hillary anyway? Pretty much as soon as he won, he announced that he no longer planned to. Even Weisberg points out, “Since being elected, Mr. Trump has been remarkably warm towards the person he used to call ‘crooked Hillary’.” It’s been speculated Trump’s promise not to prosecute was part of the phone call ensuring Hillary would concede. Then again, they’d been pretty good friends for the two decades leading up to the election.

Weisberg goes on to say he thinks Obama’s pardon for Hillary is forthcoming. Why not. The White House won’t deny the option is being considered, even though, again, Trump has come out to say he does not plan to prosecute Hillary anyway.

Obama’s pardon of Hillary will probably be worded a lot like (if not exactly like) Ford’s Pardon of Richard Nixon:

Now, THEREFORE, I, GERALD R. FORD, President of the United States, pursuant to the pardon power conferred upon me by Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, have granted and by these presents do grant a full, free, and absolute pardon unto Richard Nixon for all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon, has committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from January 20, 1969 through August 9, 1974.

Hillary’s pardon will be just as ambiguously worded, to make sure and cover anything and everything (and there’s a lot to cover).

As projected, it’ll likely be dated for her entire tenure as Secretary of State, too.

    A pardon is an admission of guilt.

  • daniel1154

    Now Republicans will rule for at least 40 years. The Democrat party represents only the left wing fringe, and they are not friends of working people. Their minority status at all levels is historic and it will take generations before they can did themselves out of this if the party survives.

    Remember, in 2018 28 Democrat Senators are up for re-election and only 8 Republicans. It just gets worse from here.

  • JohnDille

    JUST LIKE DEMOCRATS WERE A SMOLDERING PILE OF RUBBISH AFTER THE ELECTIONS OF 1928…. AND EVEN YOU BRAINLESS CLUELESS LIE BELIEVING REPUBLICANS SHOULD REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT!!! DEMOCRATS RULED FOR THE NEXT 40 PLUS YEARS! I LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT 40 YEARS… WHEN REPUBLICANS SELF DESTRUCT AND LEAVE DEMOCRATS IN A POSITION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAN… JUST LIKE IT WAS UNDER DEMOCRATIC RULE SO LONG AGO!!!

  • daniel1154

    Whenever Democrats are given control they screw it up so bad Republicans get elected in even bigger numbers. That is why the Democrat party is now a smoldering pile of rubbish.

  • JohnDille

    SO… YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW EVEN A BASIC SOCIO-ECONOMIC-POLITICAL SYSTEM WORKS???? THE RICH… OVERWELMINGLY RIGHT WING… CONSERVATIVE… REPUBLICAN OR THE RIGHT WING SLAVE OWNING DEMOCRATS OF OLD… OWN AND TOTALLY CONTROL THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA… AND THEY ALWAYS HAVE!!! BUT AMERICA’S FIRST TRUE LIBERAL PRESIDENT… ABRAHAM LINCOLN… DID A LOT TO END RIGHT WING TYRANNY IN THE SOUTH… OR MORE PRECISELY… HE HELPED WEAKEN IT A LOT. THEN WOODROW WILSON WEAKENED THE RICH QUITE A BIT MORE BY INTRODUCING THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX, AND THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM… AND BY GIVING WOMEN THE RIGHT TO VOTE!!! AND THEN, FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT AND HIS NEW DEAL POLICIES AND PROGRAMS DEALT A DEATH BLOW TO TE RIGHT WINGPOWER STRUCTURE… AND AMERICA BOOMED AND THE NUMBER OF JOBS EXPLODED AND REAL WAGES ROSE DRAMATICALLY FOR THE NEXT 40 YEARS OR SO! BUT THEN… LYNDON JOHNSON FORCED THE RIGHT WINGERS TO GIVE BLACK PEOPLE BASIC CIVL RIGHTS AND VOTING RIGHTS…. AND RIGHT WINGERS SAID… ENOUGH IS ENOUGH… AND THEY LAUNCHED A MAJOR COUNTER ATTACK. RIGHT WING DEMOCRATS BECAME RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS, AND THEY TOOK CONTROL OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. THAT PROCESS TOOK 30 YEARS… BUT BY THE EARLY TO MID 1990’S, THE OLD SOUTHERN DEMOCRATS HAD TAKEN TOTAL CONTROL OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! SO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF TODAY IS REALLY THE OLD SOUTHERN DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF YESTERYEAR… WITH A BUNCH OF SUPER RICH RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS TO BANKROLL THE WHOLE OPERATION!!! THAT CABAL NOW CONTROLS AMERICA… SOCIALLY… ECONOMICALLY… AND POLITICALLY!!! AND THE DEMOCRATS WHO DO MANAGE TO GET ELECTED… MOSTLY HAVE TO KISS UP TO RICH RIGHT WINGERSTO GET ELECTED… WHICH MEANS THAT MOST DEMOCRTATS ARE NOT REALLY DEMOCRATS AT ALL… THEY ARE… LIKE JIMMY CARTER AND BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON… WERE AND ARE JUST WATERED DOWN REPUBLICANS! AND OBAMA WAS JUST SORT OF AN ODD MAN OUT…. A REAL DEMOCRAT WHO GOT ELECTED AND GOVERNED ONLY BECAUSE REPUBLICANS MADE IT CLEAR TO HIM WHO WAS HIS REAL BOSS!!! BUT… AT LEAST THOSE DINOS… DEMOSTS IN NAME ONLY.,.. DID KEEP REPUBLICANS FROM TOTALLY CONTROLLING EVERYTHING. BUT NOW… EVEN THAT SLIM LAYER OF PROTECTION FOR WORKING PEOPLE IS MOSTLY GONE…. AND WE SHALL SEE… YET AGAIN… JUST HOW REAL REPUBLICANS… REAL RIGHT WINGERS… POWERFUL CONSERVATIVES…. REALLY OPERATE!!! AND IT WILL NOT BE PRETTY… UNLESS YOU ARE RICH… OR A COMMUNIST CHINESE…. OR AN ILLEGAL DESPERATE TO GET A JOB… AT ANY WAGE… HERE IN THE USA! AND WHETHER YOU WANT TO ADMIT IT OR NOT… WHAT I JUST SAID HERE IS TOTALLY TRUE… AND ANYONE WHO KNOWS ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT HOW CIVILIZATIONS REALLY WORK… WOULD KNOW THAT IT IS TRUE!!! OBVIOUSLY, THAT GROUP OF INFORMED AND HONEST PEOPLE DOES NOT INCLUDE YOU!!!

  • daniel1154

    Dillie. You are crazier than ever man. Democrats have had control a few times, but screw things up so bad they get their butts handed to them after each occasion. Johnson was one, then Carter, then Clinton, now Obama.

  • JohnDille

    DEMOCRATS HAVE NOT CONTROLLED MUCH OF ANYTHING SINCE LYNDON JOHNSON WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE… ALMOST 50 YEARS AGO!!! RICH REPUBLICANS HAVE MADE DANG SURE OF THAT!!! AND CHICAGO IS IN A HEAVILY REPUBLICAN STATE… AND IS SURROUNDED BY HEAVILY REPUBLICAN SUBURBS. AND IT IS REPUBLICANS WHO OWN AND CONTROL MOST OF THE BUSINESSES WITHIN CHICAGO. THE DEMOCRATS WHO CONTROL CITY HALL IN CHICAGO… AND MANY OTHER US CITIES… AND AT ANY LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT ANYWHERE IN THE USA… ARE REALLY JUST THE FLEAS ON THE BACK OF A PACK OF RICH REPUBLICAN WOLVES! AT BEST, DEMOCRATS CAN CAUSE THE REPUBLICANS WHO OWN AMERICA TO DO A LITTLE BIT HERE AND THERE TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR WORKING PEOPLE. AND WHEN REPUBLICANS ARE IN CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT… EVEN THAT GOES AWAY!!!

  • daniel1154

    Obama entered the White House with Congress under the complete control of the Democrats but instead of dealing with gun control he chose to ram through Obamacare helping to result in the destruction of the Democratic Party.

    Also, Chicago has been run by Democrats for decades.

  • JohnDille

    YOU STUPID IGNORANT SELF CENTERED JACKGRASS REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN FLOODING THE USA WITH GUNS GUNS GUNS AND MORE GUNS AND MORE POWERFUL GUNS EVER SINCE REAGAN TOOK OFFICE… AND YOU ARE TOO STUPID TO REALIZE THAT THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES FOR DOING SUCH A THING????? GUNS SOLD ILLEGALLY TO CHICAGO RESIDENTS HAVE BEEN FLOODING INTO CHICAGO FOR YEARS… AND NOW, CHICAGO IS BECOMING ALMOST AS VIOLENT AS IT WAS BACK IN THE DAYS OF RONALD REAGAN!!! AND THAT KIND OF GARBAGE IS HAPPENING ALL OVER THE USA… BECAUSE YOU REPUBLICANS AND YOUR NRA ARE COMMITTED TO ARMING EVERY CRIMINAL AND THUG AND TERRORIST AND WACKO IN THE COUNTRY!!! RICH GUN AND AMMO SELLERS ARE GETTING SUPER RICH SELLING GUNS TO YOU IDIOTS… SO SOME OF YOU CAN SELL THOSE SAME GUNS TO CRIMINALS… AND TERRORISTS… AND RIGHT WING WACKOS!!!

  • daniel1154

    Dillie. How come there were more more mass shootings under Obama than Bush?. There were also more domestic terror incidents under Obama’s watch, to the point where Obama’s white house called it the “new normal.” Obama was the con man who divided this nation and left it unprotected.

  • JohnDille

    YOU SEEM OBSESSED WITH HERO WORSHIPPING A CON MAN, DONALD TRUMP!!! YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER BRAIN WASHED REPUBLICANS, OBVIOUSLY!!! AS FOR REPUBLICANS TOTALLY DOMINATING THE NATION… WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN… THAT HAS BEEN TRUE FOR MOST OF THE LAST 40 YEARS!!! AND IT IS ALSO TRUE THAT… EVERY TIME REPUBLICANS DOMINATE THE USA.. VERY BAD THINGS HAPPEN!!! CONSIDER THESE HARD… AND SCARY… FACTS…. REPUBLICANS HELD THE WHITE HOUSE… AND TOTALLY DOMINATED BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS.. MOST STATE LEGISLATURES AND MOST GOVERNORSHIPS… PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THEM OUTSIDE OF THE SOLID SOUTH… FROM 1920 TO 1930. THE RESULT WAS… THE GREAT DEPRESSION!!! REPUBLICANS CONTROLLED CONGRESS AND IKE WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE… AND EVEN THOUGH THAT ERA LASTED ONLY 2 YEARS… THE RESULTT WAS A VERY DEEP RECESSION… BY FAR THE WORST ONE OF 3 DURING IKE’S TIME IN OFFICE! THEN… REPUBLICANS CONTROLLED BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS FOR THE FIRST 6 YEARS OF BUSH JUNIORS WHITE HOUSE DISASTER… AND THE RESULT WAS… THE DEEPEST RECESSION IN 80 YEARS… SINCE THE LAST TIME THAT REPUBLICANS CONTROLLED THE WHITE HOUSE AN BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS FOR MORE THAN 2 YEARS IN A ROW! WONDERFUL RECORD… ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT THOSE WERE THE ONLY TIMES IN THE LAST CENTUIRY THAT REPUBLICANS CONTROLLED THE WHITE HOUSE AND BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS FOR MORE THAN 2 YEARS IN A ROW!!! NOW… TRUMP LOOKS LIKE HE WILL BE ABLE TO MATCH THOSE RECORDS… BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY DEMOCRATS WILL BE ABLE TO WIN BACK THE HOUSE OR THE SENATE IN 2018…. THE SYSTEM IS RIGGED AGAINST THAT! SO… THE ONLY REAL QUESTION IS…. HOW DISASTROUS WILL THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY TURN OUT TO BE??? WILL HE AND HIS REPUBLICAN ALLIES CREAT ANOTHER GREAT RECESSION… OR ANOTHER GREAT DEPRESSION???? OR WORLD WAR 3???

  • daniel1154

    You seem obsessed with Trump, but you should blame Obama for Trump’s election and the fact that Republicans are now more dominant nationwide than any time since Reconstruction. Republicans were supposed to be a victim to demographics, but they now holds more seats in Congress since the 1920’s and more local, county, and state legislative and gubernatorial seats since the late 1800’s. One man, Barrack Husssein Obama, destroyed the Democrat party, not Trump, Putin, or the Koch brothers.

  • JohnDille

    WHICH RIGHT WING LIES SHOULD BE USED TO MAKE SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST HER??? YOU RIGHT WINGERS BELIEVE ANYTHING SLANDEROUS OR LIBELOUS OR FALSE… AND INSIST THAT EVERYONE ELSE BELIEVE YOUR LIES… BUT A LEGITIMATE COURT OF LAW WOULD NOT BE LIKELY FIND HILLARY CLINTON GUILTY OF ANYTHING OTHER THAN A MISDEMEANOR… EXCEPT MAYBE FOR RUNNING A LOUSY PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN!!! THERE IS NO WAY SHE SHOULD HAVE LOST TO A CON MAN, FRAUD, AND LYING TRAITOR LIKE DONALD TRUMP!!! UNLESS PUTIN AND THE KOCH BROTHERS HELPED TRUMP EVEN MORE THAN WE KNOW!!!

  • daniel1154

    So back to the original question Dillie. Will Obama pardon Clinton for her crimes against the American people?

  • daniel1154

    Obama destroyed the economy and the Democrat party. At least Bill Clinton was smart enough to sit back after the 1994 election disaster and let Republicans improve the economy while he took the credit.

  • JohnDille

    SO… YOU KEEP COMING ON HERE GLOATING ABOUT HOW POWERFUL REPUBLICANS ARE… HOW REPUBLICANS RULE AMERICA… HOW DEMOCRATS CANNOT WIN ELECTIONS AT ANY LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT…. AND THEN YOU CONSTANTLY AND ENDLESSLY WHINE ABOUT HOW BAD THE ECONOMY IS… AMONG OTHER THINGS???? YOU REPUBLICANS JUST ARE NOT INTELLECTUALLY CAPABLE OF PUTTING 2 AND 2 TOGETHER, ARE YOU??? NO WONDER FOX NEWS AND ALL THE RIGHT WING PROFESSIONAL LIARS WHO HAVE DOMINATED THE MEDIA FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS OR SO CAN MANIPULATE YOU IDIOTS LIKE PUPPETS…. ITS BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE BRAIN POWER OF PUPPETS… AND ARE TOO DUMB TO EVEN REALIZE THAT!!!

  • daniel1154

    Stop Whining Dillie. Why you guys whine, make excuses, and refuse to accept reality, the Republicans clean your clocks up and down the ballot in every election.

  • JohnDille

    YEAH… TRUMP WILL NEVER NEED A PARDON… BECAUSE HE WILL SPEND THE LAST FEW MONTHS OR YEARS OF HIS LIFE… IN PRISON… WHERE HE BELONGS!!! AND NO ONE WILL DARE PARDON HIM, BECAUSE THEY WOULD GET IMPEACHED OR VOTED OUT OF OFFICE IF THEY DID SUCH A THING!!!

  • JohnDille

    SO… THE KOCH BROTHERS AND THEIR ALLIES HAVE MANAGED TO BUY UP CONTROL OF THIS NATIONS ELECTORAL SYSTEM… WITH A LOT OF HELP FROM THE BRAIN WASHING EFFORTS PUT FORTH BY FOX NEWS, DOZENS OF HIGHLY PAID RIGHT WING PROFESSIONAL LIARS,… AND NOW… THE RUSSIANS!!! SO WHAT ELSE IS NEWS??? A FEW THOUSAND VERY RICH REPUBLICANS EFFECTIVELY OWN AND CONTROL AMERICA…. AND THE ELECTED REPUBLICAN PROSTITUTES THAT SERVE THEIR SUPER RICH REPUBLICAN MASTERS KEEP WORKING TO MAKE THEIR RICH REPUBLICAN MASTERS EVER RICHER AND MORE POWERFUL!!! AND THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED.. ALMOST ENTIRELY BECAUSE OF THE SUPPORT OF BRAINLESS WORKING CLASS REPUBLICANS LIKE YOU!!! I GUESS YOU LOWER INCOME REPUBLICANS ARE JUST SO ADDICTED TO YOUR WELFARE AND FOOD STAMPS THAT RICH REPUBLICANS GIVE YOU.,, INSTEAD OF PAYING YOU REAL ACTUAL DECENT WAGES!!! IF YOU IDIOTS WOULD WISE UP, DEMOCRATS COULD FORCED THOSE RICH REPUBLICANS TO STOP HIRING MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS… FORCE RICH REPUBLICANS TO STOP SHIPPING MILLIONS OF JOBS OVERSEAS TO SLAVE LABOR NATIONS LIKE CHINA AND BANGLADESH AND OTHER SUCH PLACES…. AND FORRCE THOSE RICH REPUBLICANS TO STOP BUSTING ALL THE UNIONS SO THEY CAN DRIVE DOWN WAGES…. AND FORCED REPUBLICANS TO PAY DECEDNT WAGES, BY RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE BACK TO WHAT IT WAS ALMOST 50 YEARS AGO…. WHICH WOULD RAISE WAGES FOR ALMOST HALF OF ALL THE WORKERS IN THE USA BY AS MUCH AS 55%!!!
    BUT… OF COURSE… YOU LOW INCOME REPUBLICANS ARE SO ADDICTED TO YOUR WELFARE AN BIG TAX REFUNDS AND YOUR FOOD STAMPS THAT YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE!!! THE BRIBES YOUR RICH REPUBLICAN MASTERS KEEP GIVING YOU AMOUNT TO CRUMBS… BUT YOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO ACCEPT THOSE CRUMBS IN EXCHANGE FOR SUPPORTING THE SUPER RICH REPUBLICAN CRIMINALS AND TRAITORS THAT YOU KEEP PUTTING IN POWER…. YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR!!! THERE IS NO CURE FOR STUPID, I GUESS… SOMETHING THAT YOU REPUBLICANS KEEP PROVING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!

    We never thought a Trump presidency would be easy, but things are shaping up even worse than we imagined.

    Trump’s nominations to his presidential cabinet are a horrifying mix of racists, xenophobes, sexists, Wall Street insiders, and corporate cronies.

    Trump’s cabinet picks expose the real Trump agenda: harnessing hateful ideology to gain power and using it to enrich Trump, his cronies, and huge corporations.

    It wasn’t long ago that Donald Trump promised to be a “president for all Americans” and to make the economy work for ordinary people instead of wealthy elites.

    Maybe he thought we’d forget, because it’s clear as day that those promises were nothing more than a way to grab power. Just look at who he’s nominating:

    Foreclosure profiteer Steve Mnuchin (Treasury Secretary) – This former Goldman Sachs executive got rich running a “foreclosure machine,” kicking working Americans out of their homes using techniques a federal judge called “harsh, repugnant, shocking and repulsive.” He foreclosed on well over 36,000 homes. Mnuchin’s “number one priority on the regulatory side”? Attacking the Dodd-Frank reforms reining in Wall Street.

    Wall Street billionaire Wilbur Ross (Secretary of Commerce) – Wilbur Ross is a Wall Street billionaire who made his money as a notorious “vulture investor.” The so-called “king of bankruptcy,” he offshored American textile jobs to China and Mexico and 12 coal workers controversially died at his mine in West Virginia. But he complains that “the 1 percent is being picked on for political reasons.”

    Anti-woman racist Jeff Sessions (Attorney General) – A Republican-led Judiciary Committee deemed him too racist to confirm as a federal judge… in 1986. Sessions would be responsible for enforcing the nation’s civil rights laws – despite a history of calling a black subordinate “boy,” “joking” about supporting the Ku Klux Klan, and calling the ACLU and NAACP “un-American.” His anti-woman agenda is so extreme he voted against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act and said “I don’t characterize” grabbing women by the genitals “as sexual assault.”

    Personnel is policy. Trump’s outrageous cabinet nominations make it clear that the only policy Trump will advance is what benefits himself and his corporate buddies.
    That’s why Rootstrikers and Demand Progress joined forces with over 200 leading progressive groups to send a crystal clear message: The Senate must stand up against hate and greed.

    The best way to expose the real Trump agenda is for Democrats to stand united against every outrageous, unacceptable step he takes. That starts NOW, with his cabinet of hate and Wall Street greed.

    The Senate will be a razor close 52-48 divide between Republicans and Democrats in 2017 and many key Senate committees will be split 10-9 or 11-10.

    If Democrats stick together, it will only take a handful of principled Republican votes to block any Trump nominee who champions hate or greed.

    There is not much time. The next Senate will be sworn in on January 3 and start holding hearings on Trump’s nominees almost immediately. Join more than 550,000 other real Americans and send a message demanding the Senate block Trump’s outrageous cabinet nominees.

IN OTHER WORDS… TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE WHINY LITTLE RICH KIDS… AND OTHER STUPID PEOPLE… WHO ARE TOO ARROGANT AND SELFISH TO EVEN KNOW JUST HOW SWEET A DEAL THEY ARE GETTING.

  • JohnDille

    How bad is Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin?

    This is a guy who once foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman over a 27 cent-payment error.1

    Another woman was negotiating a payment plan with Mnuchin’s bank only to find the locks changed at her house … in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard.2

    And these are hardly isolated incidents—Mnuchin’s bank, OneWest, foreclosed on 36,000 homes using tactics a federal judge called “harsh, repugnant, shocking and repulsive.”

    A lot of people already know that Mnuchin worked for Goldman Sachs for 17 years. But people don’t know that Mnuchin later ran a bank that was called a foreclosure machine. And when people do learn the truth, they’re outraged.

    In fact, even Trump voters are feeling betrayed by the Mnuchin pick. One Trump voter Mnuchin foreclosed on says “I just wish that I had not voted.”3

    By getting the truth of Mnuchin’s record in front of voters, we have a real chance to stop him. Political insiders are already saying the confirmation will be “bruising” and could be one of the most difficult of Trump’s nominees to pass the Senate.
    MY OH MY OH MY!!! IT LOOKS LIKE TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION IS GOING TO BE THE MOST CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION IN ALL OF US HISTORY!!! AND GIVEN THAT RICH AND CORRUPT REPUBLICANS HAVE OWNED AND CONTROLLED AMERICA… PARTLY VIA GOVERNMENT, BUT MOSTLY VIA THEIR CONTROL OF THE US ECONOMIC SYSTEM… FOR ABOUT 75% OF ITS HISTORY SINCE ABOUT 1868 OR SO… THAT IS REALLY SAYING SOMETHING!!!

YOU BRAIN WASHED REPUBLICAN PUPPETS ARE JUST GOING ALONG FOR THE RIDE… ALLOWING YOUR BILLIONAIRE MASTERS TO CONTROL THE BUS. BUT WE REAL AMERICANS… WE DEMOCRATS… TO FIGHT BACK, OR OUR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS WILL FIND THEMSELVES LIKE YOUR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS… TOTALLY ENSLAVED AND CONTROLLED BY RICH REPUBLICAN FASCISTS!!! SO… NO… I AM NOT GOING TO STOP FIGHTING BACK… ANY WAY I CAN!!! AND YOU WOULD DO THE SAME, IF YOU HAD THE GOOD SENSE TO REALIZE THAT YOU ARE JUST A TOOL AND A FOOL… A PUPPET OF RICH REPUBLICANS… AND HAD THE GUTS AND GOOD SENSE TO FIGHT BACK! WHICH CLEARLY YOU DO NOT!!!

  • JohnDille

    WHAT… TRUMP IS GOING TO ALLOW THE RUSSIANS TO TOTALLY CONTROL OUR ELECTIONS FROM NOW ON??? HOW WOULD WHAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE EVEN IF HE DID EXACTLY THAT… THE KOCH BROTHERS AND THEIR BILLIONAIRE ALLIES CONTROL HOW AMERICANS VOTE BY CONTROLLING THE STATE LEGISLATURES AND GOVERNORSHIPS THAT HAVE SO HORRENDOUSLY GERRYMANDERED A SOLID MAJORITY OF STATES SO THAT DEMOCRATS CANNOT POSSIBLY WIN AT THE LOCAL, STATE AND IN MOST CASES EVEN AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL. DEMOCRATS GET A MAJORITY OR NEAR MAJORITY OF THE TOTAL VOTE FOR US HOUSE ELECTIONS IN MOST YEARS…. BUT REPUBLICANS HAVE HUGE MAJORITIES IN THE HOUSE BECAUSE REPUBLICAN STATES ARE SO TOTALLY GERRYMANDERED!!! DEMOCRATS CANNOT POSSIBLY WIN THE HOUSE BECAUSE OF THAT!!! AND MILLIONS OF DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN KICKED OFF THE VOTER ROLLS BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK OR TOO OLD OR TOO POOR TO BE ABLE TO JUMP THROUGH ALL THE HOOPS THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE CREATED TO BE ABLE TO EVEN VOTE!!! FOX NEWS AND ALL THE DOZENS OF WELL PAID RIGHT WING PROFESSIONAL LIARS HAS BRAINWASHED SUCH HUGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE THAT EVEN PUTIN AND HIS STATE CONTROLLD MEDIA COULD NOT BRAINWASH THEM ANY MORE THAN THEY ALREADY ARE!!! WHICH RAISES THE QUESTION… ARE YOU A BRAIN WASHED REPUBLICAN… OR A RUSSIAN BRAIN WASHED REPUBLICAN??? NOT MUCH DIFFERENCE I SUPPOSE… BUT IF THE RUSSIANS CONTROL YOUR MIND, YOU PROBABLY SPEAK WITH AT LEAST A SLIGHT RUSSIAN ACCENT! BETTER THAN SPEAKING LIKE DONALD TRUMP DOES, I SUPPOSE!!!

  • daniel1154

    Dillie. You are having a hard time dealing with this. Give politics a rest for a while man. You are completely unhinged at this point. For your mental state, give it a rest.

  • daniel1154

    Dillie. Trump will get rid of the election fraud Democrats have been perpetrating and it will get even worse for Democrats.

  • JohnDille

    DEMOCRATS STILL GET A SOLID MAJORITY… OR A NEAR MAJORITY… OF THE TOTAL VOTE FOR MOST OFFICES…. AND HAVE DONE SO IN ALMOST EVERY ELECTION SINCE 1990. BUT SINCE REPUBLICANS CHEAT… AND GET THE HELP OF COMMUNISTS IN RUSSIA AND ELSEWHERE… REPUBLICANS WIN… SORT OF!!! AND THE NATION… AND ITS WORKING PEOPLE… LOSES!!!

  • JohnDille

    SO… YOU ARE TELLING ME THAT NIXON’S CHEATING AND NIXON’S AND REAGANS RICH SUPPORTERS GOT THOSE GUYS ELECTED??? AND THEIR BRAZENLY OPEN APPEAL TO BLATANTLY RACIST CONSERVATIVE SOUTHERNERS, AS WELL, OF COURSE!!! THAT WAS NEWS 30 AND 40 PLUS YEARS AGO,. AND THINGS HAVE ONLY GOTTEN WORSE SINCE THEN!!! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN… THEY SHOULD BE TEACHING EVEN YOU 4TH GRADERS ALL THAT ANCIENT HISTORY BY NOW!!!

  • daniel1154

    Trump and Republicans got the votes or working people, up and down the ballot, for 8 years now. The Democrat party is dead.

  • daniel1154

    Both Nixon and Reagan did something Democrats can’t do anymore. Win elections, and in incredible landslides.

  • JohnDille

    TRUMP AND HIS BAND OF DEAD BEAT BILLIONAIRES REPRESENT THE WORKING PEOPLE OF THIS NATION???? THE BEST REPRESENTATIVES OF THE WORKING PEOPLE OF THIS NATION ARE MIGRANT FIELD WORKERS AND JANITORS AND PRODUCTION LINE WORKERS… AND NONE OF THOSE FOLKS WILL EVER EVER EVER BECOME BILLIONAIRES… OR EVEN MERE MILLIONAIRES!!! THERE WAGES ARE WAY WAY WAY TOO LOW… AND HAVE BEEN FALLING EVER SINCE REAGN FIRST TOOK OFFICE!!! IN REPUBLICAN AMERICA… THE RICH ARE BORN THAT WAY… THEY DO NOT WORK FOR A LIVING… AND YET THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE YOU WANT WORKING TO SERVE YOUR BEST INTERESTS??? WERE YOU BORN STUPID… OR DID ALL THOSE DRUGS AND RIGHT WING PROPOGANDA YOU SWALLOW EVERY DAY MAKE YOU MENTALLY ILL???

  • JohnDille

    LET SEE NOW… NIXON SURRENDERED IN VIET NAM, CAMBODIA, AND LAOS… AND YOU CONSIDER THAT A KEY STEP IN WINNING THE COLD WAR???? I SUPPOSE IF REAGAN HAD STARTED WORLD WAR 3 BY CONSTANTLY ANTAGONIZING THE SOVIETS, THAT YOU WOULD ALSO CONSIDER THAT A VICTORY!!! BIZARRO WORLD STUFF, THERE… DANNY BOY!!!

  • JohnDille

    YEAH… AFTER TRUMP TAKES OFFICE… ALL HADES WILL BREAK LOOSE… AND THEN YOU BRAINLESS RIGHT WINGERS WILL HAVE SOME REAL STUFF TO LIE ABOUT AND GRIM TRUTHS TO TWIST INTO PRETZEL SHAPED BALONEY SLABS!!! YOU WILL SPEND ALL YOUR TIME BLAMING OBAMA FOR ALL THE DISASTERS THAT TRUMP WILL BE CAUSING… SO YOU WON’T HAVE MUCH TIME TO WASTE ON CLINTON AND HER MISDEMEANORS!

  • JohnDille

    IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU RIGHT WINGERS TOLD US JUST WHAT IT IS THAT HILLARY CLINTON SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR!!! MOST OF US DO NOT SPEND MUCH TIME LISTENING TO FOX NEWS AND ALL THE OTHER WELL PAID RIGHT WING PROFESSIONAL LIARS WHO ARE ALL OVER THE MEDIA… NO… WHO HAVE BECOME THE MEDIA… THESE DAYS. SO WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT LIES AND BALONEY YOU RIGHT WINGERS BELIEVE ABOUT THE CLINTONS!!! SOMETHING ABOUT PERSONAL E-MAILS AND ABOUT REPUBLICAN ATTEMPTS TO COVER UP THEIR STUPID WARS IN THE MIDDLE EAST BY YAMMERING AWAY ABOUT SOME PETTY LITTLE TRAGEDY IN SOME BACKWATER BERG CALLED BENGHAZI!!! REPUBLICANS ARE EASILY UPSET BY TRIVIAL STUFF, I GUESS!!!

  • daniel1154

    The unpleasant truth for you Dillie is that the Democrat party is irrelevant, as are politicians such as Elizabeth Warren. They do not represent working people and are therefore on the outside at every level of Government.

  • JohnDille

    YEAH… DANG OBAMA IS TRYING TO MAKE IT CLEAR TO THE WORLD THAT REAL AMERICANS AND DEMOCRATS IN GENERAL ARE NOT IDIOTS AND CRIMINALS LIKE TRUMP AND HIS SUPPORTERS SO CLEARLY ARE!!! OBAMA IS TRYING TO GIVE PEOPLE HOPE… THAT TRUMP AND HIS BAND OF MONKEYS AND BABOONS AND RIGHT WING SHEEP WILL ONLY BE IN POWER FOR A FEW YEARS… AND MAYBE AFTER THAT, REAL AMERICANS AND DEMOCRATS AND OTHER SENSIBLE PEOPLE WILL BE BACK IN CONTROL OF THE ZOO!!!

  • JohnDille

    YOU OBJECT TO THE COLD HARD VERY UNPLEASANT TRUTH??? YOU MUST BE A REPUBLICAN!!! OR A BRAIN WASHED RIGHT WING SHEEP… IF THERE IS ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE TWO SPECIES!!!

  • daniel1154

    You actually listen to this claptrap from left wing loonies like Elizabeth Warren?

  • JohnDille

    Donald Trump ran a campaign fueled by racial attacks. He encouraged a toxic stew of hatred and fear. He attacked millions of Americans. And he regularly said things that undermine the core values of our democracy.

    His victory means that Latino and Muslim-American children are now worried about what will happen to their families. Women are worried that their access to desperately needed health services will disappear. LGBT couples are worried that their marriages could be dissolved by a Trump-Pence Supreme Court. And I know many of us are worried about that Court gutting the last remaining restraints on big money in politics and assaulting our individual rights.

    Millions of people in this country are deeply worried — and they are right to be worried.

    Progressives like you, and our strong partners like People For the American Way, have a tremendously important job in this new era:

    We will stand up to bigotry. We will fight for what we believe in. We will defend our constitutional rights and values that may come under attack.

    Donald Trump is a lousy businessman, but he’s a terrific conman. Many people chose Trump because they’ve been beaten down by a rigged economy and were desperate for change. They’re in for a rude awakening.

    Trump is already moving towards massive deficit-exploding tax cuts for his ultrawealthy cronies. And the newly emboldened Republican majorities in Congress have our democracy and the middle class square in their sights.

    We know the attacks on women’s rights are in the works, but they’re also talking about further gutting campaign finance laws, and Paul Ryan is already talking about dismantling Medicare!

    And if some of the people being named for cabinet and staff positions in the new administration are any indication, we can expect an administration cozy to Wall Street and giant corporations, hostile to civil rights and civil liberties, and truly radical Supreme Court nominees.

    People For the American Way was founded precisely to fight back against the kind of right-wing extremism we’re now facing. They have decades of expertise in taking on (and winning) important fights to defend the rights of all Americans against the selfish and predatory activities of far right billionaires and their subservient puppets.

    I hope you’ll make sure PFAW is as strong as America needs it to be in the coming year.

    Thank you for everything you do for this movement, this country, and this fight to defend the American Way.

    Together,

    Senator Elizabeth Warren

  • daniel1154

    Dillie. You were always unhinged, but you have gotten to the point that society may have to do something with you. You have to accept reality. On January 20th Trump will be the 45th President of the United States.
    As for Crooked Hillary, I hope Obama shows some leadership for the first time in his Presidency and pardons her so President Trump does not have to deal with the sordid mess.

  • JohnDille

    YEAH… THE SLAVE OWNERS WHO CREATED THAT SYSTEM WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT ORDINARY PEOPLE COULD NEVER TAKE POWER, AND FORCE THE RICH TO GIVE BACK SOME OF WHAT THEY HAVE STOLEN FROM ALL THE REST OF US! AND TODAY, YOU REPUBLICANS ARE HAPPY TO DEFEND THAT VERY SAME SYSTEM… FOR THE VERY SAME REASONS THAT THE SLAVE OWNERS CREATED THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE… AND SO MANY OTHER QUIRKS IN OUR SO CALLED DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM,,, TO BEGIN WITH!!! THE REPUBLICANS OF TODAY CALL THEMSELVES THE PARTY OF LINCOLN… BUT IF LINCOLN WERE ALIVE TODAY… HE WOULD PUKE EVERY TIME HE HEARD THE WORD… REPUBLICAN! HE WOULD BE JUST AS ANGRY AT AND CONTEMPTUOUS OF REPUBLICANS AS WE DEMOCRATS ARE!!!

  • Joe Cabot

    And you continue to scream the reason that our founders feared mob rule and created the electoral college.

  • Eileen

    It is unclear whether Trump said HE would not prosecute Hillary or the Trump Administration will not prosecute. Trump, as President, has no authority to prosecute Clinton. His AG, Jeff Sessions, can call for a Special Prosecutor to see if there is a prosecutable case. I am not sure what Trump actually said, since I didn’t hear him say anything in either a press conference or rallies that I have personally listened to.

  • JohnDille

    GO GET A REAL EDUCATION… AND BE BORN AGAIN IN THE RIGHT WAY THIS TIME AROUND!!! YOUR GOD HAS MADE A HORRIBLE MESS OF THIS WORLD, AND SHOULD NOT BE TRUSTED WITH THE AFFAIRS OF WE HIGHLY VULNERABLE HUMANS!!!

  • Dr. Michael Cesar

    The Lord Jesus said : “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” [Matthew 11:28]
    Only the Lord Jesus Christ can give rest to your troubled soul.
    Try reading the Gospel of John and Paul’s epistle to the Romans.
    Perhaps this New Year can be the start of your new life (Ye must be born again).

  • JohnDille

    LIKE I SAID… TRUMP LOST… AND YOU REPUBLICANS NEED TO GET OVER THAT!!! AND WHEN HIS FRAUDULENCY TAKES THE OATH IN 3 MORE WEEKS.. AMERICA WILL HAVE LOST, AS WELL!!! AS FOR YOUR CLAIMS THAT DEMOCRATS NO LONGER CONTROL AMERICA… YOU ARE RIGHT… AND YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN RIGHT MORE THAN 40 YEARS AGO!!! EVER SINCE RICHARD NIXON CHEATED IN ORDER TO WIN A SECOND TERM, REPUBLICANS HAVE HAD EVER GREATER CONTROL OF THE USA… FROM TOP TO BOTTOM… AND THE RICH REPUBLICAN CROOKS AND TRAITORS WHO OWN AND CONTROL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY LOVE THAT!!! WHY ANY WORKING CLASS AMERICAN WOULD VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS IS BEYOND ME!!! WORKING CLASS REPUBLICANS ARE JUST VERY STUPID PEOPLE… WHCH EXPLAINS WHY DONALD TRUMP WON 65% OF THE VOTES OF POORLY EDUCATED WHITE PEOPLE! CLEARLY YOU WERE ONE THOSE IDIOTS!!!

  • hE SHOULD SENT HER AND HER MENTORS TO JAIL

  • daniel1154

    They are not equals. Nixon helped win the cold war. Clinton helped create ISIS and the entire mess in the middle east.

  • daniel1154

    Yes, I guess Trump will just have to settle for taking the oath of office on January 20th.
    No one campaigned for the popular vote. If the candidates did, Trump would have won that too.
    You have to get over the fact that Democrats have nothing. Only 15 governorships, 5 state legislatures, minority in the house and senate, and they lost the presidency too. The Democrats are now irrelevant everywhere except in the big cities that they have already destroyed.

  • Sugmag

    She’ll get her pardon one way or the other. No different than Nixon.
    She and Nixon are equals. Will go down in ignominy. She’s dead meat.
    We’ll never have to deal with her again.

  • JohnDille

    CLINTON WON BY ALMOST 3 MILLION VOTES!!! YOU REPUBLICANS NEED TO GET OVER IT…. YOU LOST… BIG TIME!!! TJHE ONLY PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP WERE STUPID WHITE PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!!

  • Rick

    Unfortunately, obama will and is doing as many damaging things as he possibly can to our beloved country right up until his last hour. What a small man he proves himself to be even right up until the end.

  • daniel1154

    Not only will he pardon Clinton, but he should. Obama played politics with this, refusing to allow his justice department of the FBI do their jobs for political reasons. Trump has a ton of challenges to take on. The prosecution of Hillary Clinton, which should have been done by the last administration, should not be one of them.

    But on the other hand for Obama to pardon Clinton would take leadership, and he is just not capable of leadership. Since when did Obama care about anybody but Obama. That is why the Democrat party is in such bad shape.

  • daniel1154

    Three decades of Crimes Dillie. It’s one of the reasons the Democrats can’t win elections anymore and are not a national party. The Clintons and Obama destroyed the party.

  • JohnDille

    OBAMA COULD PARDON HILLARY FOR LOSING THE ELECTION… BUT SHE WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH HER INCOMPETENCE AS A CANDIDATE FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE… AND THAT WILL BE PUNISHMENT ENOUGH. AS FOR PARDONING HER OTHER CRIMES… WHAT CRIMES WOULD THOSE BE??? HARD TO SAY… REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN MAKING UP CRIMES AGAINST HER AND BILL FOR DECADES… BECAUSE REPUBLICANS ARE SO TICKED AT THE CLINTONS FOR IGNORING RIGHT WING DEMANDS TO HELP REPUBLICANS DESTROY AMERICA!!!
    I GUESS WHAT THE WRITER SHOULD HAVE ASKED IS… WILL OBAMA PARDON DONALD TRUMP FOR CHEATING ON HIS TAXES, DEFREAUDING INVESTORS AND WORKING PEOPLE AND CONTRACTORS OUT OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, FOR HIRING ILLEGAL WORKERS BY THE MANY THOUSANDS… AND MAYBE EVEN FOR RAPING AT LEAST ONE… AND PROBABLY SEVERAL… YOUNG GIRLS A FEW YEARS BACK! THOSE CHARGES HAVE ALL BEEN MADE… ANDMANY MANY MORE BESIDES… BUT THANKS TO TRUMPS WELL PAID HIGH PRICED LAWYERS… HE MANAGES TO STAY ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE LAW! SHOULD OBAMA PARDON TRUMP, TO AVOID DRAGGING THE PRESIDENCY DOWN INTO THE MUCK AND MIRE OF TRUMPS LIFE OF CORRUPTION??? REPUBLICANS WILL SAY YES… OR MUCH MORE LIKELY… REPUBLICANS WILL SIMPLY BLAME OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS FOR CAUSING ALL OF TRUMPS CRIMES… LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO!!! AS FOR DRAGGING THE PRESIDENCY DOWN INTO THE MUCK AND MIRE OF TRUMPS CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR… THAT IS INEVITABLE! THAT TRAVESTY WILL BEGIN EXACTLY 3 WEEKS FROM TOMORROW!!! AND ALL REAL AMERICANS… LIKE MUCH OF THE WORLD… WILL BE WATCHING IN HORROR AND DISGUST!!!
