(Paul Mirengoff) The mainstream media is trying to make it look like President Trump is doling out pardons almost exclusively to his cronies and former allies. In this post, I’m thrilled to report that Trump has pardoned Stephanie Mohr.
This statement appears in a longer announcement of 29 pardons. Two of those pardoned are cronies or former allies — Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. There’s also a pardon for Charles Kushner, Jared’s father. It’s possible that a few of the others pardoned have a connection to the president I don’t know about.
However, the vast majority of the pardons in this batch are for people who, like Stephanie Mohr, have no connection to Trump. In most cases, like Stephanie Mohr’s, the individual served his or her sentence and has gone on to lead an exemplary, if not an extraordinary, life. In some cases, like Mohr’s, the person served a considerably longer sentence than seems, at least on the surface, to have been just. In some cases, like Mohr’s, the individual pardoned served the community in a law enforcement capacity.
