4. Here's a story speculating reasons why

The word is since Comey was involved in the Scooter Libby investigation, and it also involved a special prosecutor that Trump sees this as his chance to use this pardon as a barb pointed back at Comey.

6. Interesting article and comments.

I remember the frustration we felt over the Fitzmas that never came.



Thatís why I will not celebrate until Mueller has the whole pack of them in jail.

5. He would pardon Satan just to piss people off.

All pukes do things because they can, not because it is right or wrong, just because they can. With no thought of damage to even their own. Power rules over common sense. They always overstep and think the people will just take it. That worked for a while but now most of us are on to their game. Blue wave coming.
