More Pardons and commutations from President Trump

President Donald J. Trump granted Full Pardons to 26 individuals and commuted part or all of the sentences of an additional 3 individuals.

White House Statement

Those you probably know are Charles Kushner (Jared Kushner’s father), Paul Manafort and Roger Stone.

Charles Kushner President Trump granted a full pardon to Charles Kushner.  Former United States Attorney for the District of Utah Brett Tolman and the American Conservative Union’s Matt Schlapp and David Safavian support a pardon of Mr. Kushner.  Since completing his sentence in 2006, Mr. Kushner has been devoted to important philanthropic organizations and causes, such as Saint Barnabas Medical Center and United Cerebral Palsy. This record of reform and charity overshadows Mr. Kushner’s conviction and 2 year sentence for preparing false tax returns, witness retaliation, and making false statements to the FEC.

Paul Manafort—Today, President Trump has issued a full and complete pardon to Paul Manafort, stemming from convictions prosecuted in the course of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, which was premised on the Russian collusion hoax.  Mr. Manafort has already spent two years in prison, including a stretch of time in solitary confinement – treatment worse than what many of the most violent criminals receive.  As a result of blatant prosecutorial overreach, Mr. Manafort has endured years of unfair treatment and is one of the most prominent victims of what has been revealed to be perhaps the greatest witch hunt in American history.  As Mr. Manafort’s trial judge observed, prior to the Special Counsel investigation, Mr. Manafort had led an “otherwise blameless life.”  Since May, Mr. Manafort has been released to home confinement as a result of COVID-19 concerns.

Roger Stone— Today, President Trump granted a full and unconditional pardon to Roger Stone, Jr.  President Trump had previously commuted Mr. Stone’s sentence in July of this year.  Mr. Stone is a 68-year-old man with numerous medical conditions.  Due to prosecutorial misconduct by Special Counsel Mueller’s team, Mr. Stone was treated very unfairly.  He was subjected to a pre-dawn raid of his home, which the media conveniently captured on camera.  Mr. Stone also faced potential political bias at his jury trial.  Pardoning him will help to right the injustices he faced at the hands of the Mueller investigation.

    Fascinating. Perhaps all Presidents have issued explanations and short criminal bios on their choices for clemency and pardon. I’ve never seen any such explanations except for President Trump’s choices, though.

  3. Please pardon Jerry Delemus.

    He was not even at the standoff, but arrived to the Bundy’s RANCH AFTER the standoff to help keep the peace. Please see https://stellasplace1.com/2018/07/02/pardon-for-jerry-delemus/ for background.

    Even the leftist WMUR prints requests for his pardon:

    “Friends of Jerry Delemus make final push for pardon or commutation from President Trump
    Rochester man serving 87-month federal prison sentence for role in 2014 Bundy Ranch standoff
    MANCHESTER, N.H. —
    With just 50 days until President Trump is scheduled to leave office, local conservative activists are making a final push to obtain a pardon or commutation for Jerry Delemus.
    Delemus, of Rochester, is serving and 87-month federal prison sentence for his role in the 2014 Bundy Ranch Standoff in Nevada. He has remained behind bars for four years and eight months.
    He rose to prominence as a tea party conservative and WAS NAMED AS A VETERAN’S CO-CHAIR FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN IN 2016. Delemus accepted a plea deal before the case against the Bundys fell apart in a mistrial.
    A judge determined the prosecution withheld potentially exculpatory evidence. Charges against several codefendants were dismissed with prejudice.
    Over the last few years, efforts to plead Delemus’ case with Trump have proven unsuccessful.
    Delemus’ wife Sue hopes the recent pardon of Gen. Michael Flynn will open the door for her husband. “My greatest hope is that the president will see him, recognize that Jerry is a good man like General Flynn, deserves to be set free and pardoned fully and sent home where he belongs,” Sue Delemus said.
    While efforts are underway now to reach Trump one last time to discuss this case, Delemus said her husband has been a model inmate. “He’s well-loved by the guards,” Delemus said. “He’s well-loved by the inmates in the prison system there and has been given more responsibility. Now it’s time for him to come home.” “
