And make no mistake, Mr. Schiff speaks for a great many among the liberal elite who are outraged a black grandmother who was imprisoned during the era of Bill Clinton, kept there during the two terms of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, had her sentence commuted by President Trump. She even had the audacity to publicly thank the president for setting her free!
Apparently, Congressman Schiff feels she should have continued to rot in the white man’s prison and most certainly should not be given the freedom to express gratitude to the only POTUS who apparently gave a damn about her plight.
Former G.W. Bush presidential assistant G. Scooter Libby was an innocent man when he was sentenced to 30 months in prison and a $250,000 fine. That sentence was the result of a man caught in the crosshairs of a political battle between a Democrat-controlled Congress and an increasingly unpopular Republican president. Bush would later commute the sentence, a half-hearted measure, but the felony conviction and the fine remained in place.
This week Donald Trump righted that terrible wrong – the howls of the liberal media be damned.
Legal experts have been calling for the Libby pardon for some time. Some are now saying Trump’s pardon was also a signal to the Mueller investigation – an ordeal that has proven even more of a miscarriage of justice then what happened to Mr. Libby.
“I don’t know Mr. Libby,” Mr. Trump said, according to the White House statement, “but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life.”
Where Bush cowered with half-measures Donald Trump has rectified in full.
