About those pardons, as the Scissorheads noted yesterday in the comments, the pardons are (probably/certainly/definitely) obvious telegraphed messages to Comrade Trump’s
gang that cannot shoot straight colleagues already caught up in the Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac probe: (Say it in your best Mob voice) “I will set you at ease.”
The NYTimes agrees with the Scissorheads (as well they should!):
“All three have connections, if sometimes distant, to Mr. Trump, either through political allies or his time in the private sector. Senator Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican who greeted Mr. Trump as he arrived for a visit to Houston on Thursday, pushed for the pardon for [Dinesh] D’Souza. [Rod] Blagojevich appeared on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ Mr. Trump’s reality show, and [Martha] Stewart hosted an ‘Apprentice’ spinoff show. Moreover, all three of the cases were tied to prosecutors who have become nemeses of the president.
“Mr. D’Souza was prosecuted by Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in New York who was fired by Mr. Trump last year and has been one of his fiercest critics. Ms. Stewart was prosecuted by James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director who was fired by Mr. Trump last year and has engaged in a running war of words ever since. As for Mr. Blagojevich, he was prosecuted by Patrick J. Fitzgerald, a close friend and colleague of Mr. Comey. Mr. Trump previously pardoned I. Lewis Libby Jr., a top aide to former Vice President Dick Cheney, who was also prosecuted by Mr. Fitzgerald.”
And just as a side note, for shits and giggles, D’vorce D’spousa—documentarian fabulist, convicted election fraud felon (pardoned), fired Y’all Qaeda business school dean, serial adulterer, and would-be bigamist and self-proclaimed political prisoner of the Kenyan Usurper—took a moment from his busy day of straw-manning:

D’Vorce – Just a reminder to you: Karma is an unlimited buffet line, and you will find yourself going back for seconds.
