Trump Expected to Issue Executive Clemency for Ex-NYPD Commissioner Kerik: Sources

Source: WNBC-TV

President Trump is expected to issue executive clemency for Bernard Kerik, the former NYPD commissioner who later went to federal prison for tax fraud and lying to the government, and for former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The news comes mere hours after Trump pardoned Edward DeBartolo Jr., the former San Francisco 49ers owner convicted in a gambling fraud scandal who built one of the most successful NFL teams in the game's history.

Kerik, a one-time nominee to be the nation's homeland security chief, served three years in federal prison before his 2013 release.

3. Do you think this could be a slam at Bloomberg?

Didn't he fire Kerik? What I read was that there were rumors Kerik (who was commissioner under Giuliani) was going to stay on, but Bloomberg canned him. Could it be related?

6. I am so mad about these pardons

And angry that Jerry Rice and other ex49ers went to the White House for a photo op.

No longer will I look at him with respect.

9. Well,

Trump is going by his own standards, huh?

We now see that tax fraud is okay and so is deceiving the government. Hmmm. I wonder where he got that from?

Even though we know we can't and shouldn't do things like that, this is how you condition the people and destroy a system.

He is not draining any swamp, he has a big eyedropper full of toxins and he is poisoning the well. Drip, drip, drip.

12. CNN: Trump pardons former New York police commissioner Bernie Kerik

Trump pardons former New York police commissioner Bernie Kerik

(CNN) President Donald Trump has pardoned former New York police commissioner Bernie Kerik, he announced at Joint Base Andrews on Tuesday.

Kerik, who once served three years in federal prison for charges including tax fraud and lying to officials, was nominated as homeland security secretary by President George W. Bush but withdrew from consideration due to potential tax violations and a former household employee's questionable immigration status.

Bernie might make an ideal White House hire by Trump Gang standards.

13. Milken, DeBartolo, et al...

Trump sure has been pardoning some high-net-worth individuals lately.

I wonder how much cash goes into his off shore accounts in exchange for clemency.

...because we know that Trump doesn't make a transaction unless it benefits him in some way.
