Trump Issues Sweeping Pardons for A MURDERER and other criminals

 

Trump pardons 15, including 4 Blackwater defendants who killed 14 innocent, unarmed Iraqis.

Donald Trump grants 15 pardons: he pardoned Republican Congressman Chris Collins who committed financial crimes/insider trading, Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter who stole campaign money from his supporters, he pardoned George Papadopoulos who lied to the FBI about contacts with Russians.

But worst of all, he pardoned the four Blackwater contractors who slaughtered 14 innocent, unarmed Iraqi men and women and injured 17 others. My former office, the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, prosecuted those four defendant three times, trying to bring justice to the dozens of Iraqi citizens and their surviving family members. Trump’s pardons of these murderers is a horrific affront to victims rights the world over.

Trump Corruptly Pardons Mike Flynn

Just as Donald Trump corruptly commuted Roger Stone’s sentence, keeping Stone out of prison, Trump has now corruptly pardoned Mike Flynn after Flynn pleaded guilty – twice – to lying to the FBI about contacts with the Russians. What options does Judge Emmet Sullivan, the judge presiding over Flynn’s criminal case, have at this point? Recall, Judge Sullivan REFUSED to grant Bill Barr’s corrupt motion to dismiss Flynn’s case.

 

Federal Judge Walton Discusses in Open Court How Judge Emmet Sullivan Might Challenge Flynn Pardon

DC Federal District Court Judge Reggie Walton is presiding over Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation regarding the Mueller Report. In that capacity, Judge Walton discussed in open court on Friday how his colleague on the DC Federal Court, Judge Emmet Sullivan, might challenge Donald Trump’s pardon of Mike Flynn.

Having appeared as a federal prosecutor before both Judge Walton and Judge Sullivan, I can attest to how these two jurists are entirely dedicated to the rule of law and the integrity of the criminal justice system and the federal judiciary. Moreover, it looks like they will have the courage to challenge potentially corruptly issued presidential pardons, whether or not there is precedent for such a challenge.

Lil Wayne was charged in Florida on Nov. 17 with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, a federal offense that carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

In 2019, Kodak Black was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest just before a scheduled concert performance.

 

Trump said he gave a full pardon to a former Google engineer sentenced for stealing a trade secret on self-driving cars months before the engineer briefly headed Uber’s rival unit

Anthony Levandowski left Google in early 2016 where he worked in the autonomous vehicle division to start his own company called Otto. That company was acquired by Uber for $680 million as the ride-hailing venture pursued its own autonomous vehicle division.

Before leaving, Levandowski downloaded a trove of Google’s self-driving car technology, leading eventually to 33 counts of intellectual property theft against him. He pled guilty to one count and was sentenced to 18 months in prison last summer.
