He still was involved in too much "stuff" - if he's out and free and carrying his "legacy" - that's fine by me.
Aah, no!!!No way should Joe Biden begin his Presidency getting mixed up in the cesspool of the Trump swamp! He should not spend political capital doing things a Trump clone would do! People risked a lot in the middle of a pandemic to get him elected! We voted for something better. Wrong move and wrong message to Voters! Sorry!
It looks too much like payback for him turning on Trump.
I don't think he deserves the pardon anyway but I would avoid it on optics alone
He just reinvented himself as a "Patriot" because the optics were so bad and he needed something. He was in servitude to Trump, and he got caught. He can live with it.
He is truly repentant. He hates Trump more than we do (which is the theme of the podcast).
It could be argued he became repentant because Trump turned on him. Nonetheless, I believe he is a changed man.
His podcast has excellent production values and great guests. This week is Lawrence Tribe.
