The Eleventh Hour: Presidential Pardon Power

Released Tuesday, 8th December 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
This episode is simultaneously political and holiday-themed. With the Presidential power of pardoning under scrutiny, I look at the history of its use and misuse as I speculate about how our current lame duck may abuse it and consider whether it should be reformed.
