[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] it's not over yet. check this very old NYT article out- Trump merely needs to begin acting like he is not a loose cannon, and he can waltz into the WH. That's why I've become a bit alarmed at his failure to stop tweeting whatever pops into his head for instance.... (b) White House officials had not consulted any Central Intelligence Agency officials about whether to issue the pardon, and C.I.A. officials found out about it only after it was reported on television the morning of Jan. 20, just before President Bush's inauguration, the official said. President Clinton's pardon of Mr. Deutch came as the former intelligence chief was in the midst of negotiating a plea agreement with prosecutors on charges stemming from accusations that he had mishandled classified material while director. The Deutch pardon has not generated nearly the controversy surrounding Mr. Clinton's decision to grant clemency to the fugitive financier Marc Rich, but some members of Congress have now begun to question the decision. The chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence have sent a letter to the C.I.A. asking if officials there were consulted on the decision. United States intelligence officials said the Deutch pardon caught them by surprise because they were expecting a possible last-minute pardon of the convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. In 1998, when Israeli leaders were pressing Mr. Clinton to grant clemency to Mr. Pollard, Mr. Tenet objected and told the president he would resign if he agreed to the Israeli demands. Mr. Clinton never did pardon Mr. Pollard. Since Mr. Deutch's pardon, Mr. Tenet has formally revoked the former director's security clearances, officials added. Mr. Tenet had suspended the clearances in August 1999, after an investigation by the C.I.A's inspector general into Mr. Deutch's handling of classified material.

Eric Holder is the one who apparently walked his pardon thru--- The problem i have with the GOP's in power right now who refuse to get behind Trump is that they may want Hillary in the oval office to campaign against- think about it, if she gets in, they can impeach her and get all kinds of support for doing that- politics suxz....
