As we told you yesterday, President Trump commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, which naturally caused big waves on Capitol Hill. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even wants Congress to pass a new law:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Trump commuting Roger Stone’s sentence: “I’m recommending that we pass a law that presidents cannot issue a pardon if the crime that the person is in jail for is one that is caused by protecting the President, which this was” https://t.co/ZzhLshSw7I pic.twitter.com/WCwCM5Xvq2

Are Democrats really going to pretend that presidents of their party never granted commutations based on political considerations?
This is some insanity. https://t.co/t0TI6X6LhK

That’s an evergreen tweet when it comes to Pelosi.
She is exactly why the President has pardon power.

Too bad Nancy is too self-unaware to understand that point.
How about ones that literally bomb the US Congress?

Maybe Trump should tell Pelosi she can have her law as long as it’s coupled with term limits.
