I don't think you are getting it yet. Nixon was being prosecuted by the legal system, Clinton is being tried by public opinion.

Obama can still pardon her for any acts already committed, whether or not she has been indicted, arrested or tried for the crime. 

He just can't issue a pardon for any future crimes

btw, Nixon wasn't being prosecuted as he was never indicted. He was named an " unindicted  co-conspirator " by a grand jury.

everything to do with Trump's cabinet and transition team announcements has centered on him surrounding himself with career politicians/lobbyists

the one exception?  25% of his transition team is members of his family

good move on bringing in people who know the system and how it works.

not bothered by having his family help. they've helped him all along and they seem to have good business acumen.

I don't think you are getting it yet.  There's a big difference between being prosecuted and actually being convicted of a crime.

That's Washington Outsider Reince Priebus to you, pal.

Can I get a HOPE?

Give me a CHANGE!

Hope! Change!

 

Totally!  Nothing says "Trump is nothing more than Obama 2.0" than this pick.

Meh, I don't like the idea of a president giving positions to family members. Maybe an unpaid internship. Even if they're the most competent people in the world, it looks bad.

Priebus is actually a very shrewd business move by putting into place the man that launched Paul Ryan's career, the main Republican party member Trump needs on his side.

I don't think anybody has argued anything to the contrary. I agree.
