Good deal. I totally lost respect for Bush when he didn’t do it.

The Deep State will not be happy.

Now I know why Brennan was lashing out this morning.

IMHO this is a deliberate tweak on the Deep State and fake news media, a retaliation for the Cohen raid.

Also, I think this is a harbinger. Trump will pardon Flynn, probably Manafort and Gates, the minute he politically possibly can, and will make Flynn fully whole financially.

A subtle reminder of these investigations committees’ methods and determination to generate a crime.

You also have to ask why he pardoned him and why now.

I never thought Libby did anything wrong, and I’m really glad he did this. That said, this had to be the equivalent of sending a LOUD message to someone.

Good. Mr. Libby didn’t deserve to be railroaded by the FBI.

Maybe this will be a heads-up that pardons are soon to follow for the people who’ve been caught up in the Russia Delusion.

I suspect you are spot on with that. I really hate this political witch hunt stuff and all the throwing of folks under the bus for what, at the end of the day, amounts to parking tickets.

Brennan got his panties in a twist some years ago when Dick Cheney labelled Obama “soft” on terrorism.

And Brennan’s Buddy Holder, no doubt, is still torqued off that Cheney never had regrets about waterboarding and said he’d “do it again.”

Trump also needs to make this right with Judith Miller who was unfairly manipulated, and went to jail to protect her source. A pardon would be appropriate.

If I recall, Scooter had his conviction commuted so he would not have to go to prison. It is my recollection that Bush did not want to Pardon him because he was appealing the conviction. A pardon at that time could be a prima fascia admission of guilt.

Of course, Bush was out of office before the appeal happened.

In a statement following the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Detroit-bound U.S. airliner, Cheney said: “It is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war.... He seems to think if he has a low-key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war.
He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of Sept. 11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.”

Recall what a cluster foxtrot the Undybomber investigation was- the FBI rushed to Mirandize Abdulmutallab almost as fast as Comey rushed to Ashcroft’s hospital room years before.

I surmise that Rush Limbaugh will have him on his show very soon.

If he does Mueller has a corrupt deal with Cuomo to have New York State prosecute them.
