GOP Rep. says win or lose, Obama will pardon Hillary

pardon hillaryDuring an interview with Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg, Rep. [score]Blake Farenthold[/score], R-Texas, said that win or lose, President Barack Obama will pardon Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

“I think win or lose there’s a presidential pardon in her future,” he said.

Newsmax added:

“The historical precedent is set when Ford retroactively pardoned Nixon. I don’t think that’s good for our country, but I’m afraid it’s what’s going to happen.”

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Farenthold added that if Clinton does become president, he doubts she would follow the letter of the law and conduct business legally.

Clinton has been under fire for using a private email setup during her time in the Obama administration (2009-2013). After she was cleared by the FBI over the summer, FBI director James Comey said last Friday he is taking another look at the case because new evidence was discovered.

“I don’t think she’s going to be able to keep her hand out of the cookie jar even after a pardon,” Farenthold said. “You can only pardon for things that have been done.

Here’s video of his comment:

“You can’t pardon for future crimes,” he added.  “There would be a lot of opportunities for her, win or lose.”

During his talk show Monday, Mark Levin suggested that Obama wouldn’t pardon her before the election, but he could afterward.  And, he added, Clinton could pardon herself if she wins.

Democrats — who once hailed FBI Director James Comey — have now declared war since he announced that he would be further investigating Clinton’s emails.  White House Press Secretary Joshua Earnest, however, said he doesn’t believe Comey is trying to influence the election, effectively throwing Democrats under the bus.
