Pardon Hillary Clinton


Update: There are some good comments below about the rule of law.  That quaint concept that no one is above the law, and that if Hillary Clinton is guilty of a crime, then she should be punished. I really, really want to believe that there are enough people with that attitude that we can make a difference.  We might find out next week.

Now wait. Hear me out.  Let’s let these words from Tom Quiner set the stage:

Hillary Clinton’s presidency is shot.51ba67c3e029933261c20523a7bb5727

It doesn’t matter whether she wins or loses on election day, her presidency is over. Odds are that she will garner enough electoral votes to win on November 8th. But if and when she is sworn in, she won’t be able to govern.

The specter of emailgate will poison every initiative, every decision, every utterance until the inevitable Constitutional showdown. Three decades of corruption will inevitably come to a head.

The FBI has ensured that the chaos that always swirls around the Clintons will continue.

They have reopened their investigation into Hillary’s missing emails in light of discovering a new treasure trove of them on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

I pray the words “Anthony Weiner’s laptop” should never appear in print in a story about you.  And people! stop using the word ‘probe’ in the story about Anthony Weiner.  Funny once.  Now it just hurts.

The United States government must not be headed by someone mired in scandal.  I remember the Nixon years.  We don’t need to live through that again, as they directly led to the election of Jimmy Carter, a man so honorable and honest that until recently he was considered the worst president of the United States.  Soon to be third worst.

If Hillary is elected, we need to give the country a clean slate.  Stop the investigations.   

This will allow the country to bury the past, if not discover the crimes.  If enough people are convinced she should be president that she actually wins…then she needs to serve without old scandals around her neck.  She doesn’t deserve it, but the president needs it.

The impeachment concept of the Constitution was put in place to save us from an already elected official, whose high crimes and misdemeanors come to light.  We know she’s a liar, we know she was careless with secret information, and we know she stood by while Americans were killed in Benghazi.  If the American people elect her anyway, they are saying clearly that those things don’t matter.

On the other hand, I’m betting Hillary Clinton can’t govern for six months without committing a felony in office.  When she does, she gets no do-overs of the pardon.  Put her in a cell with Manson, and be ready to carry Charlie out on a stretcher the next morning.

    Yes, if she is elected, and the investigations continue, it will be a nightmare for this country. But to pardon her would be such a mistake. It would say that if you are wealthy enough, if you are powerful enough, you can break the law. That is bad for our country. In addition, they (the Clintons) have gotten away with so much for so long, it.. will… not… stop. The lying, the stealing, the pay for play, will not stop. Also, when you look at the shear numbers, it is hard to discount as conspiracy theory all the people who have crossed them who have died mysteriously or gone to prison. We can’t continue to turn a blind eye.

    I recall a Dilbert cartoon in which his coworker ends a conversation by saying “That all assumes we are not already in Hell.”

    Everything you have said is correct, assuming the America I remember fondly…where no one is above the law, where your wealth and connections cannot keep you from punishment…and so on. If she wins, a shocking number of people need to decide that those ideas are meaningless.

    My suggestion is the second-worse possibility should she win. The worst possibility is a protracted fight over investigations.

      I hear you, but pardoning her says we accept the decline of our country. I would rather have the ugliness and the fight rather than roll over and play dead and accept where we have come. It is always going to be the minority that is willing to stand up and fight for what is right.

      I recall what I had to say to all my kids at one time or another – “Just because everyone else is doing it, it is no reason to follow. If everyone else jumps over cliff, are you going to follow them?”

      In addition, I doubt that a pardon would be the easiest, most peaceful route. I think that would divide the country in a worse way.

    I pray she doesn’t win, but if she does we must continue the fight until justice is done. We are a nation of laws. Our laws do not allow for a different rule for the elites. For a long time we have eroded that law to allow money to determine guilt. To say ok you get a do over (again, again, again….) is not the way our country is supposed to work. I say it is high time we return to a constitutional America, and let the chips fall where they may. To allow known criminals unfettered access is absolutely insane, to say we have to, to get along is also insane.

    If Trump wins, would she even accept a pardon? IIRC, that was an issue that Nixon struggled with because he felt accepting it was an admission of guilt.

    Though, I guess there’s no downside. If she loses, the entire Clinton crime family is over and done with. Their ability to get bribes closes in an instant, since neither will hold higher office again. I guess accepting a pardon is no big deal.
