The Dog Didn’t Bark: No Pardon For Hillary
– Dick Morris
“If Bill and Hillary looked dour at Donald Trump’s inauguration, it may have been more than just frustration and sour grapes at losing the election. As Obama passed into history and Trump took power as president, what didn’t happen may have had more consequence for the former first couple than what did take place: Obama did not pardon Hillary.
Now the coast is clear for a thorough investigation of Hillary both on charges of mishandling state secrets and of running a pay-for-play operation out of the State Department.
As president-elect, Trump vowed not to pursue Hillary and expressed the wish that she not be prosecuted, but said that it “was not something I feel very strongly about.” In a series of tweets on November 22nd, Trump said that a prosecution of Hillary would be “very divisive” and noted that the Clintons have “suffered greatly” already. But, significantly, he refused to say that he would take prosecution of Hillary “off the table.”
Anyone watching the inaugural ceremonies could not fail to note how deliberately President Trump avoided eye contact with either Clinton, passing right by under their noses rather than pause for a handshake.
For his part incoming Attorney General Jeff Sessions has promised to recuse himself from any investigation.
But the investigators themselves — in at least four US Attorney offices — are by no means letting up. If they find a case that Hillary ran afoul of the law in either scandal (pay for play or national secrets), it is quite likely that they will recommend prosecution. In that eventuality, it is hard to see either Sessions of President Trump refusing to bring the case.
Hillary’s only secure protection would have been an Obama pardon. But now she is exposed. She may have to face the fruits of her own criminality.”

– Question: Why is this not on the front page of every newspaper and media web site? Is this not huge news? No explanation, no excuses, nothing. This inaction by Obama in his last hours, leaves open the opportunity for a stunning indictment of Hillary and her enablers by the Trump administration. Guess Obama didn’t like Hillary much after all. /CJ

BREAKING: OBAMA PLANNING TO PARDON HILLARY BEFORE TRUMP TAKES OVER AT NOON
– ConservativeDailyPost.com | Jan 19th 2017
“A former member of Congress has brought up the notion that Hillary might be pardoned for everything that she has done. Considering that there is literally one day before President Obama leaves office, what is there stopping him from making this pardon? That’s what former Representative Michele Bachmann believes.
“I would not be surprised to see Barack Obama issue a blank pardon for anything Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton or the Clinton Foundation has done.”
She then began discussing Clinton’s email scandal along with some other notable intelligence failures that occurred during the Obama administration. Disturbingly, there were several of them.
“The worst intelligence failures ever in the history of the United States took place under Barack Obama by Manning, Edward Snowden, and none other than our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who, because of her selfishness in having an unsecure server set up in her home, had America’s most vital secrets likely intercepted by our enemies and then relayed to the world.”

DailyKos Got it Wrong Too
Why President Obama should pardon Hillary Clinton—and George W. Bush
– DailyKos | Nov 15 2016
“Before he leaves office on January 20, 2017, President Obama should take two unpleasant, unfortunate but absolutely necessary steps. First, Obama should pardon his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because she’s violated no laws yet nevertheless faces the likely prospect of indefinite investigation and possible prosecution. Then the 44th President should also pardon the 43rd, because George W. Bush admitted his crimes yet never faced any legal consequences at all. And the President should provide relief to Clinton and make an example of Bush for the very reason Republicans cited back in 2009: to prevent the “criminalization of politics.”
