Attorney General v. Washington, Lincoln, FDR

"Pardoning someone is an individual decision that's made on a case by case basis and so there's no legal framework or regulatory framework that allows for a pardon of a group en masse." U.S. Attorney General, Loretta Lynch

What a commanding way to answer her statement, powerful!

Obama has been more stingy than George W, Bush when it comes to pardons. He's only granted 70. He's more focused on individual commutations which I have to give him credit for. Even so, I really thought President Obama would grant some Christmas commutations and pardons today. Now it looks like his final acts of clemency will be on his last day in office, like previous Presidents. Somehow, I doubt he'll grant more than a handful of pardons respectively.
