In today’s case, he knew the media was going to be up in arms over his “controversial” pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, so he had a long list of DEMOCRAT pardons that he used to shut them up.
Trump noted that President Clinton pardoned or commuted the sentences of Marc Rich and a woman from the left-wing “Weather Underground” militant group.
Trump also brought up the fact that President Obama pardoned FALN member Oscar Lopez Rivera and convicted U.S. military leaker Chelsea Manning.
It was another EPIC home run for Trump! Watch below:
Here’s more details on the Democrat pardons from Fox News:
In 1983, Rich was convicted on 65 counts of tax evasion, wire fraud and his actions involving Tehran.
Trump surmised that Rich was pardoned because he gave “hundreds of thousands of dollars” to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
He noted that Clinton also commuted the sentence of Susan Rosenberg, a member of the Weather Underground militant group.
Rosenberg had been sentenced to 56 years on weapons charges.
Weather Underground members were notably involved in the 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored truck at the Nanuet Mall in Rockland County, N.Y.
A Brinks guard and two members of the Nyack Police Department were killed in an ensuing shootout.
Several suspects were apprehended after they crashed their U-Haul truck a few miles eastward in Nyack, reportedly hoping to have escaped the area on the Tappan Zee Bridge.
Rosenberg herself denied involvement and was not charged in connection with the Nanuet robbery.
We’re so glad that Trump put them in their place! They are so self righteous when it comes to pardons, but Trump shut them up by brining up even MORE controversial pardons that were carried out by the Democrats.
