Skip to comments.Trump Slams Obama Over "Pardon" for Chelsea Manning After Excusing Joe Arpaio

Donald Trump has retweeted a message criticizing former president Barack Obama for pardoning a traitor just days after facing a backlash over his own pardoning of controversial former sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The president shared a tweet from Fox News journalist Katie Pavlich, who incorrectly suggested Obama pardoned Chelsea Manning during an online debate with Obamas former National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes over Trumps decision to pardon Arpaio.
Obama in fact commuted Mannings 35-year sentence, meaning her prison sentence was cut short but the conviction stands, whereas a pardon is usually granted for people based on good conduct and removes civil penalties associated with that personmeaning they have the right to vote.....

No comparison between the two.
“Forget it, Jake. It’s Newsweak.”
So Obama’s friend isn’t out free, walking the streets?
Bradley Manning filched reams of classified data and leaked it.
Joe just enforced the laws, when a court told him not to.
Dont believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.
We should be mostly publishing the truth on FR, not the lies, and as much good news as possible to bolster morale. We should find and post reliable sources that have already deconstructed the lie and replaced it with the truth and with a headline that says the truth. We need much more of that on FR IMO. The key is the headline and the first few sentences because not everyone has time to drill down. The endless stream of negative, lying headlines sabotages our purpose IMO.
So, commuting 35 years off the sentence is not a pardon in their eyes.
Not remotely the same thing.
Yes he is.
“filch something (informal) to steal something, especially something small or not very valuable”
The cross-dressing faggot STOLE our secrets, hardly something of little value.
I’m guessing you didn’t mean our secrets were of little value, but let’s not use nice sounding euphemism s to mitigate the enormity of this POS’s crime.
Perfect Go Trump!!!!
Compare Obama’s pardoning of a traitor and giving sensitive information to our enemies to....
Pardoning a Sheriff who dutifully implemented the law that he was sworn to and who was politically prosecuted.
HIS, not her, using their words only helps them to appear normal.
I first read it as felched
He/she/it probably did/does that too
Damned sorry I looke that up.
I would say just a little bit “perky” :)
Wonder how many guys see the Adam’s Apple on that “chick”?
Ah, the world of Obama......
