Pelosi Seeks to Limit President’s Pardon Powers After Trump Commutes Roger Stone’s Sentence

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) plans to introduce legislation to limit the president’s pardon powers after Trump commuted Roger Stone’s sentence.
President Trump on Friday evening commuted Roger Stone’s sentence just days before the republican political operative was set to report to prison.
67-year-old Roger Stone was hunted down by Mueller’s crooked team of Democrat lawyers and charged with a process crime.
Pelosi is not happy about the commutation and lashed out at Trump.
“President Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of top campaign advisor Roger Stone, who could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, is an act of staggering corruption,” Pelosi said in a statement Saturday.
“Congress will take action to prevent this type of brazen wrongdoing. Legislation is needed to ensure that no President can pardon or commute the sentence of an individual who is engaged in a cover-up campaign to shield that President from criminal prosecution,” she added.
Pelosi accused the president of having no respect for the Constitution after Trump asserted his Constitutional powers by commuting Stone’s sentence.
“Roger Stone’s seven felony crimes, which include lying to Congress and witness tampering, constitute grave crimes.  All who commit these illegal acts should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. This decision and Trump’s many other acts of corruption point to the urgency of electing a President in November who will respect the Constitution, the rule of law and the will of the American people,” Pelosi said.
This is just another publicity stunt by crooked Pelosi.
A Republican-controlled Senate will never pass Pelosi’s outrageous legislation limiting the president’s pardon powers.
Furthermore, the executive power is vested in a President under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution to grant pardons, clemency and commutations of sentences.

  1. Pelosi has got to be the stupidest "leader" in US History. The separation of powers in the Constitution prohibits the Legislature from blocking the Executive's power to pardon and commute. What has eaten this woman's brain?

    1. You are obviously ignorant of the Congress under Section 8 of Article 1 having the Power "to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers [listed in the article] and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department of Officer thereof." By this provision, Congress has the full power to enact laws governing the use of any power the Constitutions vests in in any part of the Government, in any Department or officer of the Government that includes regulating the pardon power of the expressly applies to and includes the power to pardon the Constitutions vests in the President.

      Contrary to popular fiction, the Constitution does not separate powers. The necessary and proper clauses centralizes it within Congress. The other branches of the government are there to carry out their "powers" (i.e. their duties) expressly as directed by laws enacted by Congress.

  2. Go ahead with your little vote, you old crone. It will just be another meaningless thing to add to the list of things you do.
