Convicted Congressmen, Killers Of Iraqi Civilians: A Closer Look At Those Trump Just Pardoned

  1. This is like Simon Phoenix thawing out his favorite criminals from the cryo-penitentiary so he could stage his coup. Don’t we have a 25th amendment?

  2. Trump needs more criminals and crooks to be on his side, so they can commit more crimes.

  3. No Law No Order, Georgia PLEASE Vote!!!!!

    • @Lucius Kiirus Congress already drafted and passed the bill. You’re right, I’d love some extra money to stay afloat, but major revisions aren’t easy add-ons. It’s billions more that the GOP won’t allow. Plus there’s a government shutdown looming, so Trump’s unpredictable decisions have now effectively stalled this bill for weeks.

    • Blue wave moving through Georgia 💙💙💙

    • @Trollslayer Obama pardoned, granted clemency to a ton of people. Per Wikipedia they were mostly people who got long sentences for drugs during “war on drugs” era but I don’t know who else.

      Trumps pardons seem self serving and to play to his base. Pardoning mass murderers who killed civilians in Iraq is particularly disgusting. I’d like to turn Trump over to the families of those civilians who were killed so they could decide what to do with him. Hopefully it would be slow.

    • @Trollslayer i agreed pardon is good. but pardon your own party member, what message will that say?

    • In February 2012 , Wang Lijun asked American embassy for asylum. He had a name list of the CCP corruption. He later was handed over to Xi. Xi later became President of the CCP and used the name list to catch all the opposition party. Why America did not protect Wang?Who is the USA president and Vice President at that time? Who is the Secretary of State? Why America help Xi? Chinese knew this relationship eight years ago. We don’t have to wait the Hunter Biden hard drive. This is sad that still have 70% of Democrats did not know what they voted for. Yes, included you.
      Overstock CEO
      Democrat donate trillion and millions dollars to foreign countries and illegal immigrants.

  4. The Joker is opening the cages in Arkham as he leaves!

  5. War criminals who killed innocent civilians
    Embezzler who cheated on his wife
    Cheater who got rich on insider trading
    Yup, sounds exactly like who you’d expect to get pardoned from the worst president in history.

    • ​@Trollslayer Sounds like your infected with the “Whataboutism” virus.

      Only the best…

    • @Claude Boily Good one. Right on spot.

    • @Trollslayer and the evidence of that?

    • @Trollslayer
      1- the type of the crime … not the quantity.
      2- whataboutism is very well known Trump supporters technique … and u r using it here.
      3- since 2008, the best GOP and Trumpists opinion about Obama that he is bad … now u r saying Trump is as bad as Obama.
      4- change your name … you are Troll urself … trolling every person commenting on the video … so a liar Trumpist … I don’t think this new.

    is gonna get worst. this is what happens when the ignorant vote for an evil party. Jesus help us.

    • @Mary Rendon you are a blind moron.

    • He isn’t evil. Biden is. Nancy and Cumo want you to go into debt so they can send millions overseas to other organizations and countries while they give you 600 bucks…tell me who is evil again? Nancy let the relief bill sit on her desk while we have US citizens sleeping outside in the cold because they lost everything so Trump wouldn’t claim a victory…can you explain evil or are you confused as to what evil really is?

    • @Mary Rendon Trolls and hard core right wingers have sh*te for brains.

    • @Jody Hunt Q much?

    • @Goof Ball The evangelicals tell us god ensured dump was elected. I guess that’s just a variation of your comment, that is: god does not exist either.

  7. He killed 17 people and got away with it? My god this is messed up at a massive level

  8. “You killed someone? How about a pardon, there you go”. Trump is such a monster.

  9. Instead of draining the swamp, he put the alligators back in it!

  10. That’s what happens when people elect criminals to the highest office.

    • If given a chance these same people would re-elect him in 2024, and I’m left without words.

    • Here’s one, Barack Obama ended his presidency having granted clemency to More people convicted of federal crimes than ANY chief executive in 64 years. Plus over 200 Pardons!

    • @Trollslayer It’s not the quantity that matters, it’s the type of criminals. Trump just pardoned 4 murderers….let that sink in. I remember 4 years ago when Republicans would have been up in arms over this.

      Agree with you

  11. There should be process to the pardon power. If not followed NOT valid.

    Well done republicans, I am sure these crooks are a welcome roster to your fold. Well done.

  13. Albertino Wilson | December 22, 2020 at 10:26 PM | Reply

    Doesn’t matter what you all are saying.This is how the criminal enterprise operates.

  14. The party of so called “law & order”, SMH. How sad that 74 million Americans voted for this criminal-in-chief.

  15. Accepting a pardon is admitting guilt.

  16. I’m sure the Iraqi’s have family members. This is what creates radicals.

  17. When Trump says “Law and Order” he really means “I break the laws and you follow my orders”

    There has to be a way to revoke these pardons, this is absolutely disgusting.

  19. “Military contractors” surely they should be called what they are, mercenaries.
