Friday night, on CNN’s “AC360,” an interview that took place even before a formal announcement was made that President Donald Trump was going to commute Roger Stone’s prison sentence, where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Stone receiving clemency was “a terrible idea” and “appalling.” Pelosi continued, saying that Congress ought to pass legislation so that presidents are legally restricted from pardoning anyone who commits a crime “that is caused by protecting the president, which this was.”
The power of the pardon is absolute and is written into the Constitution, so the Speaker of the House is hoping the Congress attacks the office of the president by attacking our Constitution. That is appalling.
Actually, there was no crime committed by Roger Stone. If any crime was committed it was by the Obama DOJ and FBI who used the tools of law enforcement to spy on the Trump presidential campaign in 2016, and then created a phony accusation of Trump-Russia collusion that put our country into a Constitutional crisis for over three years.
Congressional Democrats like Pelosi pushed that false narrative the whole time, causing massive divisions in our country.
Part of fired and disgraced former FBI director James Comey and disgraced former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s plan was to target people close to Donald Trump and squeeze them for any information that would justify their attempted government coup during the 2016 election.
Cretins like Comey and Robert Mueller abuse the justice system by using a perjury trap on unsuspecting innocent people to use the ability to charge them with a crime in order to get them to give up dirt on their target. It doesn’t even have to be real information, just anything they can use to nail their person of interest. Roger Stone wouldn’t play their game, so they charged him with crimes he never committed, and chose an activist judge and overlooked a Trump-hating foreperson on Stone’s jury to punish the 67-year-old man with years of prison time, which would likely be a life sentence.
Pelosi said, “I think it’s a terrible idea. Just look at this administration, the president and his henchmen, so many of his friends, advisers, campaign chairman, etc. are in jail. And for the president to be able to issue a pardon on the basis of a crime that the person committed assisting the president is ridiculous. And we have — there ought to be a law, and I’m recommending that we pass a law that presidents cannot issue a pardon if the crime that the person is in jail for is one that is caused by protecting the president, which this was. It’s appalling.”
What’s truly disgusting is that the people Pelosi mentioned as being in jail are the same people who were targeted by the Obama administration just to get to Trump. Their only “crime” was being close to the president.
None of them did anything to “assist” Trump. Let’s go over some of the cases. Paul Manafort, who was Trump’s campaign manager for like a minute, was convicted on filing false tax returns, bank fraud, and failing to disclose a foreign bank account, and it all hinged on a so-called “black ledger” that existed that held all of the evidence of Manafort’s crimes, but then we discovered that the black ledger didn’t exist. It was another lie by the Obama DOJ and FBI. The Comey FBI got information on Manafort through the Ukrainian government that was being held hostage to US aid dollars by the Obama administration.
Lt. General Michael Flynn, Trump’s incoming National Security adviser, was forced to plead guilty to lying to the FBI, because FBI agents threatened to go after his innocent son if he didn’t cop a plea. The truth of his case is that Barack Obama set him up, and the willing accomplices in Comey’s FBI carried the plan out.
Flynn was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is the counterpart to the civilian CIA. The lying grump John Brennan was his actual civilian counterpart, and Brennan was involved in setting Fly up.
Okay, so why did they set Flynn up in the first place? Because as the DIA director, Flynn came out strongly against Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, because it was a horrendous agreement. Even though Obama and the Fake News praised the deal as a mechanism that stopped Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, it was literally written in the deal that after so many years Iran would be legally allowed to obtain nuclear weapons. But the Iran deal was Obama’s signature foreign policy “achievement” if you can believe that.
Flynn was also talking about the proxy war that the Obama administration ran in Ukraine, without ever telling the Congress about it. They stole $7 billion in US taxpayer money to pay for that war, only to claim that the money simply disappeared. They had no idea where it went.
Obama eventually fired Flynn, and he went silent for a while. But then this guy named Donald Trump defied all odds and won the presidency, and he announced that he was making Mike Flynn is National Security advisor. The Obama people panicked. They knew Flynn knew where all their bodies were buried, so to speak, and they feared he would tell the new administration everything they did.
So, Obama threw sanctions at the Russians and expelled a number of Russian diplomats from the US, supposedly in retaliation for Russian interference in our election process. Obama waited to do the sanctions and expulsions until Flynn was on vacation with his family in the Dominican Republic, outside the United States. Flynn taking vacation was not a secret. The election was over and everyone was taking a break before the transition.
The Obama administration calculated that the Russian ambassador would place an urgent call to the incoming National Security Advisor, Mike Flynn, and he did. They spoke on Flynn’s cell phone. The Obama FBI subsequently forced Flynn to plead guilty to lying to the FBI about a question they asked him about what he said during his conversation with the Russian ambassador about the sanctions that Obama put on the Russians.
It was disclosed recently in documents previously hidden by Obama people that the FBI never even asked Flynn about sanctions during the interview where they said he lied about sanctions. How can Flynn have lied about sanctions when the FBI never even asked him about them?
This is why the disgraceful Judge Sullivan is doing everything he can to not drop the case against Flynn, even though the DOJ dropped it. The Democrats got to Sullivan, and he has ruined his career on the bench by doing their dirty work, because the Democrats CAN NOT allow the real story to get out and be saturated in the media.
These are only some of the people who were wrongly targeted and attacked by their own government to cover up the Democrats’ criminal behaviors. Pelosi says justice for them is a “terrible idea.” I think Pelosi remaining the Speaker of the House is a terrible idea. And equally appalling is that the mainstream news media will not report any of the facts said here. They will just report what Pelosi said as if her statements are valid.
