Christmas season clemency headlines
President Trump only granted a single commutation this holiday season (details here), but the stories linked below document that a good number of state offenders in a good number of states were able to enjoy an extra merry Christmas thanks to Governors exercising their clemency powers:
From California, "Gov. Jerry Brown grants 132 pre-Christmas pardons, commutes 19 sentences"
From Illinois, "Rauner grants 10 requests for clemency, denies 78"
From New Jersey, "Christie grants 10 people clemency in waning days as governor"
From Texas, "Abbott pardons seven in Christmastime clemency"
Though I suspect this is not a comprehensive accounting of recent clemency actions by Governors, I still cannot help but notice that four of five Governors making holiday headlines with their clemency actions are Republicans.

I would like the FBI to arrest Gov. Gerry Brown. He is suborning a federal crime, the illegal entry of many into the US. To deter.

President Trump must correct this injustice by the filthy lawyer traitors. I would charge the lawyer filth with treason and put them in federal prison, especially the judge that allowed the case to proceed past first pleading.
This is 100% the work of Harvard Law School radicalized Obama. That radicalized lawyer embedded lawyer commissars of left wing pro-Taliban political correctness. They cancelled proper and smart orders by officers with up to 4 Stars. Trump got into office and loosed our warriors, ending the rule of ISIS in a year. Harvard Law School radicalized Obama stopped our military campaign against Hezbollah in collaboration with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Albany Law School radicalized Andrew Cuomo pardons 18 criminals to stymie deportation by Trump. They are loosed onto poor neighborhoods with little political influence. These are drug dealers, career criminals, and vicious gang bangers.
Trump should ask the Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section of the DOJ to have Cuomo arrested on federal conspiracy charges, with the predicate crime, the suborning of illegal entry into the United States. Taser the lawyer and beat his ass during the arrest. To deter.
