This chart shows the number of pardons and commutations that President Bush has granted in each of the eight years that he has been president. First, it can be seen the fourth year of each term has featured the highest number of pardons and commutations. Second, it can be seen that there has been a gradual increase in the exercise of clemency across the eight years. Finally, one can also see that, despite the very small numbers, Bush has generally become more commutation friendly as well. What might all of this say for January?
