Enough gossip about who is getting pardoned, who's expected to be pardoned, the bottom line, or the reality is, George W Bush will have the final say. Nancy Pelosi has given him that option and if he stays true to his past behavioral pattern, he'll have a massive pardon agenda very soon.
What will happen then will be a total rats nest to untangle. " we the People" have no recourse anymore, the U.S. Constitution will look lack a child's essay, and Nancy Pelosi will have imposed "HER WILL" on "We the People".
It is a sad day when we democrats have let our so-called leadership continue to support America's worst President in our history. Shame on our leaderers.
