It’s a big day on the Pardon-sale front:

Giuliani associate told ex-CIA officer a Trump pardon would ‘cost $2m’ – report

“An associate of Rudy Giuliani told a former CIA officer a presidential pardon was “going to cost $2m”, the New York Times reported on Sunday in the latest bombshell to break across the last, chaotic days of Donald Trump’s presidency…

“The former CIA officer John Kiriakou, who was jailed in 2012 for leaking the identity of an operative involved in torture, told the Times he laughed at the remark from the associate of Giuliani, the former New York mayor who as Trump’s personal attorney is reportedly a possible pardon recipient himself.

“Two million bucks – are you out of your mind?” Kiriakou reportedly said. “Even if I had two million bucks, I wouldn’t spend it to recover a $700,000 pension.”

“An associate of Kiriakou reported the conversation to the FBI, the Times said.”

And all this time I thought buying a pardon would be $20, same as in town.

I have no idea if this is prosecutable, but it sure as hell is corruption.

    If true, I believe that invalidates the pardons. AFAIK.

      skinnydennis – [sigh] We’ll have to wait and see what the final court decision turns out to be. And I’m thinkin that you can’t process the protests and appeals on any kind of class-action or group basis, there won’t be any kind of “assembly-line efficiency” to the whole process. It could turn out to be hundreds of cases that need to be heard individually.

      But over on the sunny side of the street, such a backlog and cloggage in the Federal Courts, (where we already have such,) would be cause for Joltin’ Joe to start appointing judges, and creating new District and Appeals Courts in areas where they’re sorely needed.

      I know, you would think that with all the judgeships handed out like lollypops after a visit to the Dr, that tRump and Yertle McTurdhole were able to arrange, that there wouldn’t still be a shortage, but you must remember how many out of the 187 open-judge’s positions Obama tried to appoint were confirmed by Moscow Mitch.
