    If Hillary Is Not Guilty, Then Why Are Her Supporters Asking Obama To Pardon Her?

    If Hillary Is Not Guilty, Then Why Are Her Supporters Asking Obama To Pardon Her? Hmm…
    .
    "Hillary Clinton has not been tried, but there are those who want to drag her for the next three years. It will not stop until they find a reason to put her in jail. That would be a travesty." "It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton," Jackson said. He said issuing the pardon could help heal the nation, like Ford's pardon of Nixon did.

    .
    Speaking at President Gerald Ford’s alma mater, The Rev. Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon.
    .
    Stopping short of saying Clinton did anything wrong, Jackson told a large crowd of University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators gathered at daylong celebration of his career that Obama should short-circuit President-elect Donald Trump’s promised attempt to prosecute Hillary Clinton for use of a private e-mail server.
    .
    “It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton,” Jackson said. He said issuing the pardon could help heal the nation, like Ford’s pardon of Nixon did.
    .
    Would Obama pardon Clinton before he leaves office?
    .
    “President Ford said we don’t need him for trophy. We need to move on. President Nixon wasn’t convicted of a crime. He didn’t apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country.
    .
    “Hillary Clinton has not been tried, but there are those who want to drag her for the next three years. It will not stop until they find a reason to put her in jail. That would be a travesty.”
    .
    In 1974, Ford, a University of Michigan alumnus, issued a full and complete pardon of Nixon for any crimes he may have committed. He said the pardon was in the best interests of the nation.
    .
    Jackson’s comments came at the end of a long day in Ann Arbor, which included him dropping in on an anti-Trump rally held by students on campus.
    .
    Jesse Jackson: Obama should pardon Hillary Clinton
    .
    Jackson comes to a campus that is full of strife over race. Numerous racist flyers have been posted and students have alleged they have been attacked because they are Muslim or a minority. There have been anti-Trump marches on U-M’s campus, along with campuses across the nation. A large demonstration marched through a series of U-M buildings even while Jackson was speaking.
    .
    Students “are growing up in an America that is in an identity crisis,” Jackson said. “These demonstrations are born out of fear. Fear that the Klan will ride again. Fear that violence (against minorities) is coming back.
    .
    “In this election, voters voted for fear. I think hope will defeat hate, but it’s a battle.”
    .
    In a conversation with the Free Press at the beginning of the day, he blamed Trump for the environment of fear.
    .
    Donald Trump saw an America that was a dry field, and instead of watering it to get the grass growing again, he threw a lit match on it, Jackson said.
    .
    Now it’s up to Trump to take action, Jackson added.
    .
    “The one who set the field afire must be the one to put it out,” he told the Free Press in a one-on-one interview. “He had the option to pour water on it (the dry field) and let it grow. He didn’t do that — he chose to light it on fire. One of my concerns is that we see the division in America now because of that. We see classmates, roommates in a conflict over the way the campaign turned out.
    .
    “He knows Mexicans didn’t take jobs from us. It was the corporations. He knows you can’t deport 15 million (immigrants). It’s not just about the adults, but also about the children who were born here, grew up here and go to school here.”
    .
    Jackson told students not to give up the struggle.
    .
    “Students, don’t let them take your hope. Deep water doesn’t drown you. You drown because you stop kicking. There is a tug of war for the soul of America. Do we want to be an aristocracy or a democracy? To be silent is to betray your conscience. You must not be silent in the face of violation of human rights.”

    My Thoughts:
    .
    When the rule of law is disregarded because someone is deemed too important to be held accountable, then where’s that leave you and me that will be held accountable for our actions.

  3. We are not a banana republic, we don't jail our apponants when they lose. I don't want President Trump wasting political capital harassing Hilary. Hopefully Obama pardons her. Her only problem in accepting it is she has to admit to being guilty I believe.

    You really need to get out more. It has NOTHING to do with Hillary because she lost and wanting to jail her because she was an opponent. She jeopardized out national secrets by having the unauthorized unsecured E-mail server, which I dare say she choose to do to be able to circumvent all the FOIA requests, lied to the FBI and a congressional committee. If the law is good enough for everyone of us,than it's good enough for her and all of this BS about, it's in the past lets move on, tell that to the thousands of people who have been sent to jail for doing a fraction of what she did.

  5. I get out a lot, it would be an unnecessary distraction from pushing his agenda. Remember, she got more votes, just how piseed off do you want to make our opponents.

    Presidents are not part of the process to prosecute criminals.

    If she, or any politician commits a crime, they must be treated just like anyone else by law enforcement and the courts.

    Do you feel it's correct to hold people accountable for disclosing our nations national security secrets on a unsecured unauthorized E-mail server? Many people are sitting in jail for doing a fraction of what Hillary has done. Is she above the law?
    .
    She broke up to 12 federal laws, just to name a few, like destroying E-mails that were under order to be held, Lying to the FBI & Congress, allowing her lawyers to have access to top secret items when they didn't have any security clearance.

    If what they disclose was legal to begin with.

    When the national secret exposes criminal behavior, then disclosure is an act of patriotism (a.k.a. Edward Snowden)

    Edward Snowden and Hillary are direct opposites for their reasons for what they did, but both are guilty od disclosing national security secrets and need to be held accountable, because if it was either you or I that did what they did, especially Hillary, then we would see the other side of the jail door really quick.

    So you would be happier if Snowden had not blown the whistle on the criminal activity of the NSA, and they would still be spying on Americans illegally?

    Gee taking action against one's government when the government is wrong can never be tolerated ...... Oh wait..... the American Revolution would have never happened and you would be vowing your allegiance to a queen.

    If you are delusional enough to think the NSA isn't still looking into our items on the web among other places, then go ahead and keep thinking that. Snowden didn't stop anything. I'm not condoning what Snowden did, national secrets need to be kept under wraps, that's why I feel Hillary needs to be held accountable. When I worked with Top Secret pub's while in the Navy, if I would has lost even one page of a pub I would have lost my security clearance and had to leave the Navy.
