1927 pardons

Is that about one pardon every 1.5 days, on average, during his presidency?

More important than the quantity of pardons is the quality of the individuals pardoned. Compare Obama's to the crooked friends of his that Trump pardoned. I dare say that Obama knew none of the people he pardoned personally.

https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blo...eserving-second

The 231 individuals granted clemency today have all demonstrated that they are ready to make use — or have already made use — of a second chance. While each clemency recipient’s story is unique, the common thread of rehabilitation underlies all of them. For the pardon recipient, it is the story of an individual who has led a productive and law-abiding post-conviction life, including by contributing to the community in a meaningful way. For the commutation recipient, it is the story of an individual who has made the most of his or her time in prison, by participating in educational courses, vocational training, and drug treatment. These are the stories that demonstrate the successes that can be achieved — by both individuals and society — in a nation of second chances.

Today’s grants signify the President’s continued commitment to exercising his clemency authority through the remainder of his time in office. In 2016 alone, the President has granted clemency to more than 1,000 deserving individuals. The President continues to review clemency applications on an individualized basis to determine whether a particular applicant has demonstrated a readiness to make use of his or her second chance, and I expect that the President will issue more grants of both commutations and pardons before he leaves office. The mercy that the President has shown his 1,324 clemency recipients is remarkable, but we must remember that clemency is a tool of last resort and that only Congress can achieve the broader reforms needed to ensure over the long run that our criminal justice system operates more fairly and effectively in the service of public safety.

As I said, I doubt if Obama even knew personally any of the people that he pardoned. Trump has pardoned many of his crooked cronies.

*************************************************************

BREAKING: Trump just abused his power AGAIN and commuted the sentence of his crony, Roger Stone. Trump is DESTROYING the Presidency and making a joke of our legal system!

The ability to grant pardons is among a president’s most unchecked powers.

Pardons have corrected injustices, and they’ve caused outrage. But historians consider some of President Trump’s pardons among the most controversial ever granted.

Experts say many of his pardons follow a pattern of rewarding people popular with his supporters or those who have spoken glowingly of the president. One recent pardon recipient wrote a book titled “Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other.”

“So many of these pardons tie personally back to Trump, and that’s what stands out,” said Allan J. Lichtman, distinguished professor of history at American University.

Your point?
When he left office, tell us that he was responsible for causing 46 million people lose their job or did he gain 30 million? In regard to death, how many were caused by having some type of healthcare versus not having non whatsoever...What makes you ignorant is the fact that one half of your brain doesn't function seeing that Trump's actions are non negotiable while brutally attacking a anything you don't agree with. Funny your disagreements involves honesty, ethics, truths, accuracy, forward progress, success, improvement etc. Now be honest here...1000 to 1, you're not married, do not have a great relation with people and generally live alone.HHHMMMM

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.
Enacted by: the 5th United States Congress

Donald J. Trump
"Russia if you are listening, please find those 30,000 pieces of E-mail"

Yep you're just that clueless!!!
