The commutations bring to 562 the total number of sentences Obama has shortened. The White House says that's more than the past nine presidents combined. Almost 200 of those who have benefited were serving life sentences.

I don’t often even ever abbreviate foul language - but I will now make an exception ~ FUBO!!
Guilty as hell,free as a bird!"
Between this and the Iran payoff, it’s no wonder the media smears are in overdrive against Trump this week. With Trump stories dominating the news feeds, there’s no room to cover these atrocities.
Or those from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Florida?
Maybe the tax savings can be diverted to victim/ witness program funding?
More jobs for soft-science and education college degree holders looking to sign up for the loan forgiveness program for government service.
