Remember during the second debate when Donald Trump basically threatened to throw Hillary Clinton in jail if elected President? She replied stating that it’s good news Trump isn’t in charge of the laws of the land, setting him up for the hysterical reply “because you’d be in jail.”
Will Trump actually follow through on that promise? That’s what many are wondering, and it’s led to an interesting possibility. What if Hillary is indicted and jailed before Donald Trump takes office so that President Obama can then pardon her? While it almost seems comical to suggest, that’s not off the table.
The day following Donald Trump’s presidential victory, the White House wouldn’t rule out the possibility of extending a presidential pardon to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to protect her from any prosecution by President-elect Donald Trump.
On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest responded to a question about whether Obama had considered the idea of granting a pardon to the former Secretary of State Clinton for any future problems stemming from the ongoing FBI investigation into her private email server.
Trump has stated several times throughout his campaign and even during a presidential debate that he would appoint a special prosecutor to Clinton’s case because she “has to go to jail.”
Earnest avoided a direct answer, saying, “The president has offered clemency to a substantial number of Americans who were previously serving time in federal prisons.”
“We didn’t talk in advance about the president’s plans to offer clemency to any of those individuals and that’s because we don’t talk about the president’s thinking, particularly with respect to any specific cases that may apply to pardons or commutations,” he added.
If Hillary Clinton had truly been innocent when the FBI had investigated her and let her off the hook twice before, why would they need to pardon her? If they do, it’ll practically amount to an admission of wrongdoing.
Thank God we didn’t elect her! And let’s put pressure on the White House to NEVER let this happen – get the word out, share this post on Facebook and Twitter.
