ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Speaking at President Gerald Ford's alma mater, the Rev. Jesse Jackson called for President Obama to issue a blanket pardon to Hillary Clinton before he leaves office, just like Ford did for Richard Nixon. "It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton," said Jackson. He said issuing the pardon could help heal the nation, like Ford's pardon of Nixon did.

"President Ford said we don't need him for trophy. We need to move on. President Nixon wasn't convicted of a crime. He didn't apply for a pardon. (Ford) did it because he thought it would be best for the country.

In 1974, Ford, a University of Michigan alumnus, issued a full and complete pardon of Nixon for any crimes he may have committed. He said the pardon was in the best interests of the nation.

Unfortunately, President-Elect Trump has already cemented his reputation as a liar.

Jesse Jackson is still alive?

Who would have thunk it.

I actually hope that obama pardons here so that Trump does not have to deal with that truly despicable person.

I hope he tries to prosecute her. I see it as a win-win. If HRC is innocent of all crimes, Trump looks like a vindictive ass. If HRC is convicted, then it turns out she was a crook all along as lots of people have been saying. What is the downside? Also, on a separate note, it sets a precedent for prosecuting Trump once he leaves office. As I say, win-win.

The danger with prosecuting presidents is that you will scare away the good ones.

Not for long if he keeps hanging around Ann Arbor.

This is moronic. Hillary doesn't need a pardon. She's never been accused of any crime related to the email server or her charity foundation. The suggestion otherwise is pure politics. Those scandals are nothingburgers.

Yeah...no crime, no pardon. If only he could pardon her from all the evil BS innuendo republican crap that has been pushed on her.

Maybe he can wave his magic wand and erase her humiliating defeats too. Then maybe fix that busted face and body of hers. Do a little something about her wonk eyes, fainting, spasms, and shrill voice while he's at it.

Stupid Jesse Jackson. Seriously, another crooked self serving race baiting democrat. They're a dime a dozen.
