Both Bill and Hillary Clinton spoke out this week against President Bush's commutation of Scooter Libbey's sentence for perjury. Someone should tell them there is a difference between a pardon and a commutation. With a commutation, there is still a fine to be paid and a reputation as a felon with all that implies.
Hillary Clinton said it showed cronyism in the Bush White House. What does she have to say about the pardons given by Bill Clinton. There were at least 27 pardons given to residents of Arkansas. They were also given to people convicted of drug charges, bribery, obstruction of justice, perjury, armed bank robbery, income tax evasion, and trading with Iran in violation of the trade embargo. Bill Clinton even pardoned his brother for conspiracy and distribution of cocaine.
I think before Hillary Clinton says anything else, she should look at the record of her and Bill's co-presidency.
This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
