    Trump Planning to Issue About 100 Pardons on Tuesday

    BREAKING: Trump Planning to Issue About 100 Pardons on Tuesday

    By Sarah Rumpf
    Jan 17th, 2021

    President Donald Trump is planning to issue a massive pile of pardons on Tuesday, his last full day in office, according to a report by CNN.

    White House reporter Jeremy Diamond told The Situation Room anchor Wolf Blitzer that three sources familiar with Trump’s plans told him that the president intended to pardon about 100 people.

    “The pardons, we’re told,” Diamond said, “are expected to include a mixture of more controversial pardons to white collar criminals, high profile rappers, as well as potentially some of the president’s political allies, but also in this batch several pardons that are more criminal justice reform minded,” like his commutation of Alice Marie Johnson’s sentence in 2018.

    Diamond also reported that Trump has apparently taken his advisers’ counsel and is not planning to pardon any of the Capitol rioters or attempt to pardon himself — or, “at least the paperwork for a self-pardon has not yet been drawn up.”

    If only well-connected political allies, wall street/big money folks, high profile rappers are on the list and none of "pro-MAGA patriots" who thought they were following Prez's lead, his popularity among his supporters could see a sudden drop in couple of days.

    Be interestimg to see if Trump would pardon this navy veteran/any of the other arrested MAGA Capitol rally protestors or launch pressure campaign for their release/fair treatment following his adminstration's Sweden pressure campaign model that was launched to secure immediate release of arrested rapper who was well-connected (was dating Trump pal Kim Kardashian's sister).

    He should pardon the capital protestors on the basis that they aren't going to get a fair trial, if nothing else.

    He should actually just pardon everybody in the country. Except Hillary.

    Can he do that?

    That won’t be nearly enough to cover all of the staffers that the Democrats will try to entrap and prosecute. As usual, the crony white collar criminal pardons will be outrageous.

    The more hopeful part of me wants to think that Trump will pardon Assange and/or Snowden, if only as a way to stick a finger in the eye of the Cathedral as he departs office. But the more cynical (and realistic) part of me suspects that Trump is too much of a gutless narcissist to bear (what he perceives as) the additional damage the Cathedral will surely do [1] to his "legacy" if he grants either or both of those pardons.

    IOW: It all comes down to how much of a self-regarding coward he is. I hope not much of one (and I will be delighted if that is the case), but I'm not holding my breath. If he does it, it will be the best and most laudable thing he's done in his tenure (along with not starting any new wars). We'll see ...

    Maybe giving pardons to deep state Zionists is another cunning 3D-chess ploy by the Donald?!?

    The best names I could think of that (don't) deserve a pardon are (I guess it would look suspicious if the son of the NYC judge would be the only Capitol protester to receive a pardon).

    Steve Bannon (who is a favourite according to "insiders").

    Maybe he can find another cop in prison for setting her dog loose to maul a helpless, handcuffed prisoner to pardon. That would be about what one would expect.

    Trump being threatened and blackmailed...

    President Donald Trump received an unsettling warning on his final Saturday night in the White House.

    Huddled for a lengthy meeting with his legal advisers, Trump was warned the pardons he once hoped to bestow upon his family and even himself would place him in a legally perilous position, convey the appearance of guilt and potentially make him more vulnerable to reprisals.

    So, too, was Trump warned that pardons for Republican lawmakers who had sought them for their role in the Capitol insurrection would anger the very Senate Republicans who will determine his fate in an upcoming impeachment trial.
    ...
    Trump is also not expected to pardon Edward Snowden or Julian Assange, whose roles in revealing US secrets infuriated official Washington.

    While he had once entertained the idea, Trump decided against it because he did not want to anger Senate Republicans who will soon determine whether he’s convicted during his Senate trial. Multiple GOP lawmakers had sent messages through aides that they felt strongly about not granting clemency to Assange or Snowden.

    Even this gives him too much credit.

    Swamp creature in disguise gets diplomatic cover from guy he won't pardon which furthers the myth of his supporters.

    That being, that he's a victim and not part of it.

    Well it's late and I have had no notification..

    not this time again.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Trump said he was going to drain the Swamp. Is he now going to bend his knee in shame to the Swamp by not pardoning Assange?
