Today, the GOP's preznit pardoned...
Trump rewards two deplorable men who engaged in the same crime he did: Extortion.
Former Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich was not only convicted of selling a U.S. Senate seat. The Illinois governor threatened to withhold state money for a children's hospital unless its CEO coughed up money for his campaign.
"Republicans have advised the president against it, arguing that Mr. Blagojevich’s crime epitomizes the corruption that Mr. Trump had said he wanted to tackle as president." --NYTimes
"The president’s decision came the same day that he pardoned Edward J. DeBartolo Jr., a former owner of the San Francisco 49ers who pleaded guilty in 1998 to concealing an extortion attempt and eventually surrendered control of his team." --NYTimes
The POTUS who was accused of extorting Ukraine's president to get dirt on the Bidens and who was acquitted but not found innocent, today pardoned TWO CONVICTED EXTORTIONISTS!
Trump is releasing these two convicted extortionis to repopulate The Swamp!
