President Trump poised to pardon Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, sources say: For those that don’t remember Scooter Libby was convicted on a process crime trumped up against him when he was being investigated for a crime that the investigators absolutely knew he did not commit even before their investigation began. If that sort of gestapo tactic reminds you of J. Edgar Comey and Milhouse Mueller it should.

I kind of liked the idea I heard floated by someone recently. Trump could get on TV every Friday and issue an executive pardon to one of the long list of people we would like to see in front of a firing squad. He could read off a list of all the crimes they have committed – and will NEVER be prosecuted for – and then pardon them. The Gerald Ford gambit. Cheap and effective way of declaring someone guilty. Maybe we would get lucky and have one of them demand a fair trial instead. That would last at least until the next election.

Then he could cancel all the money I owe Bank of America.

I love the idea of the pardon. I couldn’t care if they had a video of Scooter sodomizing farm animals and had him on animal abuse charges. Trump pardoning him will cause liberal heads to explode. Crime or no crime, that’s always good fun.

Good. What the government prosecutors did to Libby was the real crime in that affair. He did absolutely nothing wrong. Even the people who defend him get mealy-mouthed about it–I read a column today where they say “well, he did lie to the FBI…” No, he didn’t lie to anybody! His account of something that happened two years earlier differed from the account of some journalist, I can’t remember who, and the government charged Libby with lying. Logically, they could just have easily have charged the journalist with lying. Common sense would have said ignore the whole thing. After all, it’s two accounts by fallible humans with fallible memories, who are they to say which guy was remembering accurately? And it was about something that didn’t matter whatsoever, so who cares which guy was remembering accurately? The lesson from that mess was this: WHEN THE FBI QUESTIONS YOU, DON’T ANSWER. NO MATTER WHAT, DON’T ANSWER A QUESTION. Because those f**kers will use whatever you say to indict you.

Trump should just issue a blanket pardon for everyone Mueller has talked to during his ‘investigation’. If he does that you will need ear muffs to protect your hearing from the sound of millions of Progressive heads exploding.
