Adam Schiff decided to rattle his dull saber and actually warned President Trump against using his vast constitutional powers to pardon Roger Stone.
Schiff forgets himself, the constitution, and more importantly who won the 2016 election. Trump won the presidency and winners get the pardon power and there is nothing Schiff can do but launch weak threats and warnings.
Also, we just saw at Roger Stone’s sentencing that President Trump was correct to overrule the vicious Mueller and Comey linked prosecutors.
They wanted 9 years and the judge ripped those guidelines and said even before Trump’s tweet, that she was not going to go along with these power-hungry un-elected bureaucrats masquerading as fair-minded prosecutors.
Instead, she gave Stone 3 years and may even wipe that off the books if she gives him a new trial – but what she didn’t do is end Stone to jail now.
She wants to look at the Dem juror who bragged about her political bias.
So Schiff needs to stay quiet and let justice work and if President Trump issues a pardon, Adam will whine but otherwise he has no power to change it.
“Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness. He did it to cover up for Trump. His sentence is justified,” Schiff said.
“It should go without saying, but to pardon Stone when his crimes were committed to protect Trump would be a breathtaking act of corruption,” he added.
“There are 175,000 federal prisoners. Many are serving harsh sentences and deserve mercy. Yet, Trump uses pardons almost exclusively for: Political supporters, Wealthy individuals, Contestants on his TV show.”
