Frank Gaffney Says Clinton May Need a Preemptive Pardon From Obama
Commenting on Chris Christie’s trial in absentia of Hillary Clinton last night at the Republican National Convention, Birther, serial anti-muslim conspiracy theorist, and regular Hugh Hewitt guest recently said Hillary’s only hope is to seek a preemptive pardon from President Obama, much like the one Nixon got from Ford.
Naturally, the most politicized Justice Department ever won’t prosecute the incipient Democratic presidential nominee but Gov. Christie showed how, all other things being equal, Hillary Clinton will be tried and convicted in the court of public opinion.
The only possible way out is for President Obama to pardon her preemptively and soon. It may not change the ultimate verdict but it would commute Hillary’s sentence.
