President Donald Trump has been on a pardon spree lately. Today, he pardon Dinesh D’Souza who was convicted of campaign-finance violations; a charge Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen could be facing in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Trump also floated the idea of pardoning Martha Stewart and disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich who also was charged with charges President Trump could face. For example, Stewart was convicted of obstruction of justice, making false statements and conspiracy for lying to investigators. Now President Trump has not lied to investigators as far as we know since he reportedly has not met with the Special Counsel team, but he is being investigated for conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Blagojevich on the other hand, was convicted of 17 public corruption charges in connection to trying to sell former President Obama Senate seat. He was found guilty of bribery and ten counts of wire fraud which are charges President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen is currently facing.
Now Republicans will argue that President Trump is overturning wrongful convictions by a crooked F.B.I. which President Trump wants everyone to believe since he started this F.B.I. can’t be trusted nonsense. However, the truth is President Trump is handing out pardons out of desperation. He can feel how close Mueller is getting to him since he has already filed over 100 criminal charges while indicting 19 people and getting 5 guilty pleas. Recently Mueller team has been investigating targets in Israel and several other countries as part of their investigation. President Trump likely thought Mueller would never find out that more countries besides Russia interfered in our election and plotted with his campaign to help him win the election. Well the bad news for him is that Mueller knows about those other countries and a lot more. So President Trump can keep pardoning people and trying to send the message that Mueller and the F.B.I. are corrupt because it won’t work. His pardons also won’t convince his former campaign members that he will pardon them since he cannot pardon state charges.
I must give Patti Blagojevich credit for constantly going on Fox News shows and doing interviews with other conservative media about how Robert Mueller, James Comey, and the F.B.I. are crooked and trying to do President Trump the way they did her husband. I bet Patti was thinking I will tell these idiots and that not to bright guy in the White House what they want to hear to free my husband.
