President Donald Trump on Thursday said he was considering a pardon for Martha Stewart.
The president also said that he was considering commuting the sentence of disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
The president told reporters about his thinking while on a flight to Texas. The president earlier in the day announced that he would pardon conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza.

I’m detecting a strategy at work in all these Trump pardons.
The DOJ has gone rogue and is steamrolling over people, locking them up for serious jail time over relatively minor charges. Meanwhile Hillary & Co. skate.
He is preparing public opinion for a wave of DOJ firings. Perhaps even Mueller himself.
First Dinesh D’Souza. Now Martha Stewart?
WINNING! (Still not tired of it.)
Martha is a great idea.
They made up?
If Hillary can do it in spades and get away with it, why not pardon Martha Stewart? At least she provides something valuable to those of us who cook & bake.
Why the freak would he give this low life crook the time of day?
When I heard about the DeSousa pardon, I wondered about the other witch hunt regarding Stewart. If this is true, I’m really shocked.
Trump didn’t have to do this, but the message he is sending to BOTH sides is huge. No wonder the deep state hates him so.
I really like the Blogovich pardon concept - gets to show that Trump is ‘bipartisan’ in his pardons, just prior to pardoning everyone around him being targeted by Mueller.
Sticking a knife (rhetorically speaking)* into Comey’s skeevy heart.
*Just to clarify matters for any FedGov drones who scan FR looking for people to hassle.
The day the DOJ firings happen it should be a holiday.
Save it for a “bad news” day
Hopefully nothing comes up concerning a pardon for George Ryan.
And it’s a good thing.
Pardon Blago in exchange for turning states witness on other Illinois/Chicago corruption.
NOPE. He needs to pardon the Black grandma that Kim Kardashian is (rightfully) fighting to release first.
Did Martha hurt Hill’s feelings at some point? I would bet she did at some New York function.
“Pardon Blago in exchange for turning states witness on other Illinois/Chicago corruption.”
Wow, that could lead to the former “His Majesty” having to answer a few questions.
Yup. Recall that Blago's legal troubles opened up a seat in the Ill. legislature for a Kenyan born Chicago community organizer
