Robert Begleiter, a New York City lawyer who is the former assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of New York, wrote an op-ed in The Daily News today asking President Barrack Obama to pardon Hillary Clinton and her associates who are “potential targets” of an investigation into the use of her private email server. In his article, the lawyer points out that the Constitution provides Obama the power to pardon someone who has not been charged with a crime.
With less than 48-hours until Obama loses his pardon power, Robert Begleiter’s request for action ignores the fact that President-elect Donald Trump told the New York Times he has no intention of investigating Clinton.
Begleiter warned President Obama that not pardoning Clinton is risky. He fears the possibility that in the event Clinton ever criticized Trump during his presidency a change of heart by Trump could lead to an investigation.
He called it “sideways” to believe that a person who accepted a pardon is admitting guilt. He wrote that a pardon for Clinton could, in the words of Alexander Hamilton, “restore tranquility to the commonwealth”
