The White House isn’t ruling out the possibility of Hillary Clinton receiving a last-minute pardon from President Obama — even though she hasn’t been charged with a crime.
Asked at Wednesday’s press briefing whether Obama had considered utilizing his unique executive power, press secretary Josh Earnest was cryptic.
“The president has offered clemency to a substantial number of Americans who were previously serving time in federal prisons,” Earnest said.
“And we didn’t talk in advance about the president’s plans to offer clemency to any of those individuals and that’s because we don’t talk about the president’s thinking, particularly with respect to any specific cases that may apply to pardons or commutations,” he added.
Clinton has been embroiled in a lengthy FBI investigation into her private email server.
There are also reports that the feds are investigating the Clinton Foundation.
No charges have been filed against Clinton.
