    To add an interesting case here Thomas Jefferson pardoned every last person convicted under the Sedition Act. Even though that is pretty much a slap in the face to John Adams and the Federalist Party, nobody today seems to think he was being a king. Was Jefferson being a king, Jimmy because that is far more brazen than anything Trump has done with his pardon powers.
    There is a difference in that Obama's pardons were an act of mercy and had nothing to do with himself personally, while Trump is pardoning his allies whose crimes are connected to, or parallel to his own. Trump also claims that he has the absolute right to pardon himself. In other words Trumps pardons are self serving, not acts of mercy as intended by the Framers. That's how a dictator operates, not how a president is supposed to operate.

    That's essentially the nature of your political ramblings.
    Dude, seriously, you're a moron.

    Not that I can find. Most of his pardons seem to be linked to drug offenses or the military, with very few having to do with political allies. Trump has given the least pardons, of any president in the past century. Your tin foil hat is showing again.
