After Stone Commutation, Pelosi Planning Bill To Limit Presidential Pardons

Trump had every right to pardon Stone, even if some don’t like it. Two former prosecutors – Brett L. Tolman and Arthur Rizer – penned an op-ed for Fox News saying Stone was “a relative bit player” sentenced to justify Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

“The Stone prosecution is just the latest example of a well-documented phenomena: the way special prosecutors, desperate to justify their commissions, end up charging marginal players with tangential crimes — often related obstruction of the investigation itself,” the two wrote.

Journalist and author Andrew McCarthy, too, defended Trump’s actions and pointed out multiple pardons from Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama that Democrats defended.

President Bill Clinton pardoned his own brother for felony distribution of cocaine. And a key witness in the Whitewater scandal for which he and Hillary Clinton were under investigation. And three others convicted in independent counsel Ken Starr’s probe. And Marc Rich, in what was a straight-up political payoff. And his CIA director. And his HUD secretary. And eight people convicted in an investigation of his Agriculture Department,” McCarthy wrote.

Maybe Pelosi should peruse the US Constitution, specifically Article II, Section 2, Clause 1 sometime.

If Pelosi thinks Congress can pass such a bill, and if a President was stupid enough to sign it into law, it would certainly be challenged as being unconstitutional. This would be on the same level as Trump issuing an Executive order to put an age or term limit on members of Congress. That would be a violation of Article I which specifies the qualifications for Congress.

But these desires to limit the powers a certain President currently has only comes back to bite them in the ass when "their" guy is in the White House.

She is not thinking things through.
Her old brain is addled.
She just jumps to wanting to change a law every time Trump opens his mouth

The leaders of the Democrat party should have a meeting and go tell the old woman that it's time to go.
Of course that is hard to do when they have their heads stuck up her ass.
