Trump's First Commutation of Sentence

... on day 334 of the administration, this is the earliest commutation of sentence granted since 1989, when George H.W. Bush commuted a sentence after 206 days. Lyndon Johnson holds the modern record, at 17 days. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all waited over a 1,000 days.

Great - because I was curious - I also think it is noteworthy that George HW Bush was one of the stingiest presidents when it came to mercy - to balance the perception that he granted one so soon vs other presidents - how many did he grant in four years? In fact, he was the architect of our modern day drug war that is still stuck on stupid, as was well documented in America's war and drugs series on the History channel.

Thanks PS you always have the hard data!
