Clark was convicted following a 5 week trial of swindling investors in Key West out of $300 million. He hid assets off shore & was prosecuted in 2016 after Panama expelled him, so really, nothing in his profile just screams out, candidate for clemency.
The DOJ Pardon Atty’s website shows Trump’s last grant of clemency (conviction stands, sentence ended) was on Jan. 13 for a Florida bank fraud defendant named Fred Clark. Hard to imagine we won’t see Trump handing them out like indulgences on his way out the door.
Lindsey Graham on Fox warns GOP against convicting Trump. “It would destroy our party ... impeaching him after he leaves office would be disastrous for our country and our party.”
Respectfully, after living through the last four years, I’m not sure the destruction of the Republican party would be bad for the country.

Important note: The majority of the protesters at the Ohio Statehouse headed home around the same time the Cleveland Browns game is supposed to start.
When you want to overthrow the government but your team hasn’t gone this far in 26 years.
JUST IN: Louisiana resident Cody Connell charged w assault of cops in Capitol riot. Also was allegedly seeking to purchase weapons to return for inauguration and said only way he was coming home was 'in a body bag.' Doc:
This public safety tranche of prosecutions is important -it incapacitates dangerous people. But it cannot come at the expense of a prompt focus on people responsible for organizing, leading & funding the insurrection. We’ve heard nothing on that from AG/FBI Director.
Graham says of Biden: “If you don’t stand up against the impeachment of Donald Trump after he leaves office, you’re an incredibly weak figure in American history. President Trump is trying to heal the nation.” (Unclear how Trump is trying to do that). It’s “insane at every level”
Anytime Lindsey Graham says anything, it should be caveated with a reminder that when Graham was running against Trump he acknowledged that electing him would destroy us. Or better yet, just stop listening to him.
