Trump pardons ranchers in case that inspired 2016 occupation of wildlife refuge in Oregon

Dwight and his son Steven Hammond were convicted of arson and faced a mandatory minimum sentence of five years, mandated by the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996.

U.S. District Judge Michael R. Hogan said such a lengthy sentence "would not meet any idea I have of justice, proportionality ... it would be a sentence which would shock the conscience to me."

Hogan instead sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months in prison and Steven Hammond to a year and one day. However, in October 2015, a federal appeals court ordered them to be resentenced to the mandatory minimum.

In a statement Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called that decision "unjust."

Not that Trump didn't have the rancher vote, but he's got them solidly on his side now. I wonder who in the DoJ appealed for the tougher sentence.

Duh, probably the federal district appeals court ?

I doubt it was Trumps idea, but it was a good one. The trial judge was absolutely right, they didn't deserve to spend any more time in jail. They were railroaded.

Trump grants clemency to 11 convicts, including Rod Blagojevich and Bernard Kerik

This is a classic. Rod Blogojevich was taken down by Comey and Fitzgerald. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois. Trump mentioned them by name in a press conference. He he.

@Rancid

What you are seeing in action is that white privilege here in the US that many whites (especially republican conservative whites) say and claim doesn't exist in this country Rancid. What if Obama did some of the things that Trump did? What if Rod Blagojevich and Bernard Kerik were black or Latino? Would they get any clemency?

You do realize Trump got the First Step Act passed right? He has done more than anyone in either party in the last 30 years to address race-based sentencing disparities. This was after his pardoning of Alice Marie Johnson, as implored by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Lol the senile speed addict who wears so much bronzer it looks like clown makeup pardoned the extremely guilty Blagoyevich because he was on a season of his TV show.

Lmfao you've been carded multiple times for posting black murder porn because you find it hilarious. No one gives a shit about your insincere arguments about how the most explicitly racist and openly senile president in modern history has done anything to help anyone who isn't himself. You're a lonely, sociopathic Boomer who subsists on conspiracy YouTubes and the desperate need to tell people you own a standing desk (from which you gleefully post videos of black people dying).

These pardons are lame. Hes also going to pardon Roger Stone just because the jury foreperson was biased against him. I wonder what his reasoning was for pardoning some of these peple

Yes. And he was literally fired from The Apprentice for not knowing enough Harry Potter trivia because they were doing a marketing tie in with the Harry Potter theme park, lmfao.

Trump was just having a senior moment staring at the TV and thought if he pardoned a wizard he'd get a golden egg laying goose or some shit. Who knows what the fuck goes on inside the dying synapses of his brain.

1. Joe Arpaio: Basically, "fuck you Obama and Holder for siding with illegal aliens over law abiding citizens and law enforcement"
2. Scooter Libby: Basically, "fuck you Comey and Patrick Fitzgerald for convicting someone who didn't leak any CIA names to the press"
3. Kristian Mark Saucier: Basically, "fuck you Obama, Holder, Comey, Hillary, et. al for heartless and ruthless double standards."
4. Joe Jackson: Basically, "Look! Obama really wasn't for black people. His role was to bail out Wall Street billionaires at the expense of the middle class."

Today, Trump pardoned Dinesh D'Souza for attempting to make illegal campaign contributions. Rush Limbaugh theorizes that Trump is going to pardon Rod Blagojevich (Democrat) and Martha Stewart (Democrat donor).

NBC is confirming this too

NBC suggests that Trump may only commute Blagojevich's sentence, but that would be welcome for him since he's in prison.

Trump is a fucking riot. So what do you folks think? Who else could Trump pardon?


This is an absolute disaster. Trump is a fool.

I find your reaction to government-mandated police cameras showing the police getting violently assaulted and having to use deadly force hilarious, because you refuse to acknowledge that the police face significant danger in their day to day activities. I also find it hilarious that the footage is available now, because Obama mandated it thinking he was going to catch more police rather than have ample footage of people behaving badly to police. Since then, the woke have moved on and they simply do not prosecute crimes like shoplifting until someone steals more than $950, and don't hold poor people on bail so they just return right back to crime after booking and processing.

Alice Marie Johnson doesn't agree with you, and neither do many people who have been given a second chance at life through the First Step Act.

Actually, I usually post here from my bedroom laptop while luxuriating on my king size Stearns and Foster. I have time for maybe one more post, then it's back to the servers in my 1-car garage.

He was, and Trump fired Blago on the show. :lol:

Stone may have enough luck in an appellate court to have the case thrown out. I think they will want to see that first, since the foreperson of the jury was apparently a former Democrat candidate for congress who tweeted anti-Trump comments related to the Mueller investigation.

President Trump has been put in this position with the power to pardon like God in order to show compassion and true justice, even in a system of corruption and unequal justice by the deep state. It makes them furious with anger and hatred.
Praise the Lord.

I need to know if @Rugoz was facetious when he posted that.

It's official, we're a banana republic now.

Guiliani and his Palestinians were headed to jail, Barr killed it.

So they will continue their part of trying to use a foreign country to influence our election, using Russian money, of course.

Whoever becomes the Dem candidate will get criminally investigated over something fake.
