Walsh: Bush 41's pardons of his own close aides, several of whom had been convicted of lying to investigators, "demonstrates that powerful people with powerful allies can commit serious crimes in high office -- deliberately abusing the public trust without consequence."

I sadly don't have time today to pay homage to George HW Bush, so I'll rely on the 1992 statement of Lawrence Walsh, the Special Counsel investigating the Iran-Contra crimes, when Bush pardoned his criminal aides & thus ended all investigations into Bush's own grave crimes #RIP41
I would take a president with this attitude any day over one who goes around the world bowing to other leaders and apologizing for America.sounds like alot of BC members LOL

"I will never apologize for the United States — I don't care what the facts are... I'm not an apologize-for-America kind of guy."
