Presidential Pardons

While we have a world class putz in office and the other three houses controlled by the same party, I do not expect any change. Not to mention that the slimiest party (when it comes to people vs corporations/political party) being in power.

This is something that needs to be addressed after the current shit ball is over.

The Presidential power to grant pardons needs to be limited. They should not be able to pardon anyone from their own administration/appointees.

Let the following Presidents issue those pardons.

Pardoning your own messes sure seems like a conflict of interest. Yes, an abuse of power, that perhaps should be grounds for impeachment by itself.

Which administrations have had the most resignations or indictments?

This post will take some time to refine the data.

The title really is the desired information. My initial thoughts are that this will show the GOP as the most corrupt. It could be enlightening, let us see huh?

Obama

Bush (W)

Clinton

Bush (HW)

Reagan
