“How is it that the American people gave a pass to Trump for the exact same things that Biden is guilty of Treason?”
Treason: In the United States, treason is confined to the actual levying of war against the United States, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. –Websters 1828 Dictionary
It’s kind of interesting to see how Donald Trump called Biden out for treason and yet failed to prosecute him for doing so, no doubt Biden is guilty, but did you pay attention as to what Trump did before leaving office (Luke 22:48)?
Was anyone paying attention to the fact that Donald Trump signed (Not vetoed) just before parting from the people’s White House, a bill that literally funded America’s enemies (Article 3 section 3 US Constitution)?
ABC 7 reported “The Washington D.C. pork inside the new COVID-19 stimulus bill”
“It’s called the COVID Relief Bill, but it has almost nothing to do with COVID,” Trump said. “This bill contains $85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma, $1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian military, which will go out and buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment. $25 million for democracy and gender programs in Pakistan, $505 million to Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. $40 million for the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, which is not even open for business. $1 billion for the Smithsonian and an additional $154 million for the National Gallery of Art. Likewise, these facilities are essentially not open.”
What is just as bad, and quite telling, is that the Business Insider reported: “Trump issues 73 pardons and 70 commutations in a final wave of executive clemency grants before leaving office.”
- President Donald Trump issued a clemency list Tuesday as one of his final actions in office.
- Trump was criticized for bypassing the DOJ review process covering who gets executive clemency.
- Steve Bannon, Lil Wayne, and Elliott Broidy were among the names on the list.
President Donald Trump issued more than 140 pardons and commutations late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning as one of his final acts in office.
The Washington Post reported that Trump and close aides, including his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, drew up the list during a Sunday meeting in the Oval Office. The New York Times reported that Ivanka Trump sent the final list to the White House counsel’s office for approval and that the Justice Department’s pardon office, which typically reviews who is granted executive clemency, was not included in the process.
People on the list included:
- Former chief strategist Steve Bannon will be pardoned
- Former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick of Detroit will be granted a commutation
- Rapper Lil Wayne will be pardoned
- Rapper Kodak Black will be granted a commutation
- Former RNC finance chair Elliott Broidy will be pardoned
- In total, the White House announced 73 pardons and 70 commutations in the latest round.
Numerous people at the center of speculation about pardons and commutations did not appear on the president’s final list, including Rudy Giuliani, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and Joe Exotic.
Names on the list included:
- George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign-policy aide who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the Russia investigation.
- Alex van der Zwaan, a Dutch lawyer who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the Russia investigation.
- Roger Stone, a Republican strategist who was convicted in the Russia investigation of multiple felony counts of making false statements, obstruction, and witness tampering.
- Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman who was convicted of eight counts of tax fraud, bank fraud, and failure to report foreign bank accounts, and who pleaded guilty to conspiracy and obstruction.
- Charles Kushner, Jared’s father, a former real-estate businessman who pleaded guilty in 2005 to 16 counts of tax evasion, one count of retaliating against a federal witness, and one count of lying to the Federal Election Commission.
- Former Republican Rep. Steve Stockman, who was convicted of 23 counts of fraud, money laundering, conspiracy, and false statements.
- Former Republican Rep. Chris Collins, who pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI and conspiring to commit securities fraud.
- Former Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife, Margaret, who pleaded guilty to misusing campaign funds.
- Four former Blackwater guards convicted in connection to the massacre of more than a dozen Iraqi civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square in 2007.
- Two former Border Patrol agents convicted of shooting and injuring an unarmed immigrant in 2006.
In November, the president also pardoned his former national security advisor Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI as part of the Russia investigation. The president is granted extraordinarily broad pardon powers under the Constitution.
And don’t forget, Trump has a history of granting pardon and clemency to criminals and yet, has absolutely no history of prosecuting those he promised that he would for their treason (Proverb 17:15)!
Conclusion: What is so hypocritical about all of this, you might ask? Joe Biden will now be ridiculed and called out for his treason, and rightfully so, against the people of this country whereas Donald Trump somehow gets a pass (Matthew 23:3).
