Obama Issues RECORD Number of Pardons and Shortened Sentences!

How else do you cap off a lawless presidency, but with a RECORD NUMBER of pardons and sentence commutations!  

From the Associated Press:

The White House says President Barack Obama has pardoned 78 people and shortened the sentence of 153 others convicted of federal crimes. It’s the most number of individual clemencies in a single day by any president.

Obama has been granting commutations at rapid-fire pace in his final months in office, but he has focused primarily on shortening sentences rather than pardons. Pardons amount to forgiveness of a crime that removes restrictions on the right to vote and lessens the conviction stigma.
