Always be closing, as they say, and what could be more on-brand for the 4th Reich than a marketplace for grifters buying themselves clemency? I suppose this is somewhat normal, to find someone with access and get them to plead your case, but this lobbyist is scooping up well-off felons for something like a class-action case:
“…One lobbyist, Brett Tolman, a former federal prosecutor who has been advising the White House on pardons and commutations, has monetized his clemency work, collecting tens of thousands of dollars, and possibly more, in recent weeks to lobby the White House for clemency for the son of a former Arkansas senator; the founder of the notorious online drug marketplace Silk Road; and a Manhattan socialite who pleaded guilty in a fraud scheme.”
I’m sure that Prznint McGrifter is going to get a cut of the cream off the top. Seriously, what’s in it for him is the Trump Prime Directive.
