Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
I don't think that pardon is forthcoming. The Clintons have lost their mojo and their stroke with the Dems.
Would that not be sweet? A stick in the eye from Obama, and never to get out from under the threat of prosecution. Justice of a sort, but still some justice.
Can you be pardoned for a "crime" you haven't been indicted for?
Yep. Remember Ford and Nixon. How you'd word that pardon, given all the many and various crimes we both know about and don't know about yet, would be a challenge.
This is what I'm hoping for:Jan.20 - Washington D.C. is locked down by a freak blizzard, so the official events of the inauguration are held inside, with the official swearing-in happens in the White House. Mid-way through the swearing in, with camneras live-streaming video, flash bulbs from still cameras trigger Hillary's seizures, full on head-spin like in the coffee house followed by collapse like on 9/11/16. Trump stops swearing in, cameras still rolling, nation sees gentleman Trump take command to get Hillary medical attention. When Hillary finally carted away, swearing-in ceremony resumes and Trump becomes US.prez#45. Meanwhile, Hillary wakes up handcuffed to a stretcher, on her way to medical attention at a hospital ward in the nearest Fed.pen. Behind the scenes before Jan.20, Trump & Comey have been discussing charges against Hillary.
BJ pardoned international financial criminal Mark Rich.Obama pardoned a transsexual. Draw your own conclusions.
