They're unhappy about Scooter's pardon at a Federal level even though he already did time for his 'crime' of lying to Ken Starr, special/independent prosecutor....do you think they'll retry him for some State law now? They're also afraid that Trump will MAYBE pardon Gates and/or Flynn or anybody else that's been part of his team, so they want to be able to bring separate State charges.....does that mean that they will now go after Richie....the DEM that Bill Clinton pardoned before he left office? Or go after Chelsea Manning.....the one BO pardoned at the last minute? NY has to be aware of the fact that sooner or later some Republican will be Governor or an Attorney General in that State and that means DEMS become targets again for State charges.
That's the problem with Dems.....they want instant gratification and never look at long term effects of their actions....and they ALWAYS come back to bite them.
aspects of law and justice.
Grantor motives aside, pardons are a powerful tool for correcting injustices.
