Remember When Bill Pardoned His Brother?
Democrats, the liberal media, and GOP traitors all feigning outrage over President Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of a crime for simply doing his job.
Funny thing is, they had nothing to say about the numerous shady pardons of Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, and there are MANY.
Not one of them complained about Obama pardoning hardened criminals, traitors like Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden, or convicted terrorists from Gitmo.
Interestingly enough, none of them had a word to say about former President Bill Clinton’s MANY dubious pardons, including the pardon of his own brother, Roger.
Roger Clinton is the “black sheep” of the Clinton family; Bill’s younger brother, Roger billed himself as an actor and a musician, but in reality, was more of a drug dealer than anything.
The younger Clinton brother was pardoned by his brother Bill for a cocaine distribution conviction, for which he spent over a year in prison.
In fact, Roger has quite the record with police, including DWI’s and a disorderly conduct arrests, and was given the code name “Headache” by the Secret Service.
None of the detractors of President Trump have mentioned that, but they’re quick to attack our president for pardoning a law enforcement hero who was the victim of a political witch-hunt?

Former President Bill Clinton‘s half-brother, Roger Clinton, who was given a presidential pardon on a 1980s cocaine conviction and earned the Secret Service code name “Headache,” was arrested Sunday night in California on a charge of driving under the influence, police say.
Roger Clinton has been arrested twice in the past, according to CBS News.
He was sentenced to more than a year in prison in 1985 after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute a gram of cocaine. He was pardoned by President Clinton in 2001 on his last day in office.
Only a month after his pardon, Roger Clinton was arrested for driving under the influence in Hermosa Beach, California, according to CBS. He later pleaded guilty to a reckless driving charge and was put on probation.
His attorney at the time, Mark Geragos, told ABC News the younger Clinton was targeted by police because of his brother.
“They obviously knew who he was. I believe he was targeted. I have no doubt that that’s what happened,” Geragos said.
“We don’t target people because of who they are. Clinton was pulled over because of his driving,” Officer Paul Wolcott, a Hermosa Beach police spokesman, told ABC News at the time. He said Clinton was stopped after his SUV was seen weaving down the street after he left a night club.
Clinton was also charged with disorderly conduct because he challenged a bouncer at the club to a fight, according to ABC News.
He was also fined $1,350 after pleading down in that case. “It’s basically the equivalent of two traffic tickets,” Geragos told the New York Times in August 2001, after the plea deal was finalized.
