    How awesome would it be if US Marshals Service handcuffed her right after thee swearing in. Be all like thanks for saving us the trip.

    How awesome would be if they arrested Trump right there before swearing in? Maybe it's the violation of the Cuban embargo. Maybe it's a tie to Russia. Who knows? But it would be entertaining.

    Mayhap that is the reason for the sour look on her face as shown this morning. Obama said ... nope.
    On the other hand, B ill is looking a wee bit old.

    Once again, I've gotta say it: Pardoned for what?

    You can pardon someone once they have been convicted of a crime. Which she hasn't been. And as much as I'd like to see it happen, there's no way to "pardon" someone from wild conspiracy theories.

    You must first find someone guilty of a crime before they can be pardoned!

    Do it then! Comey couldn't find evidence to prosecute her. If you've got the evidence, bring it forward and take her to court yourself!

    Richard Nixon was never prosecuted and he received a pardon.

    Google Gerald Ford pardoning Nixon. You don't have to be charged with anything to receive a pardon.

    Huh. I guess I hadn't realized that the President can completely shut down the entire judicial process from beginning to end. You really can pardon someone for "everything he may have done, is doing, or will ever do"?

    I guess the presidency is a lot closer to a monarchy than I had believed. :(

    It does help the optics if the pardon is somewhat specific, but those are just optics.

    And a pardon of Hillary Clinton would be about optics-- as would a prosecution.
