    Default Trump's pardons may be poorly worded enough to leave some people on the hook

    Trump's pardons leave some of their subjects open to additional prosecution, experts say.
    His former campaign chair Paul Manafort could still be prosecuted for specific crimes he wasn't pardoned for.
    Even Michael Flynn, who received a wider-ranging pardon, could still have it tested by courts.

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    Naaaahhhhhhhh.

    Come on.

    We all know Trump writes the best pardons.

    They're great.

    They're incredible.

    They're better than any other pardons ever written by any other President.

    The pillow guy helped him write them, so we know they're top notch.

    Oh, those poor criminals.........

    Hopefully they don't sue him for his pardon worded like an impatient 8th grader..........
    "There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone," McConnell wrote. "His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended."

    There is some leeway for intent, but that leeway can not completely overrule the letter of the document. I think trump was afraid to admit what they were guilty of, which is an important part of the pardon. Without the tacit admission, it is not a pardon.
