There is nothing fair about our legal system if wealthy people can buy expensive attorneys to keep them out of jail and/or have contacts with this president. Germany has a far different prison system. Its jails are not based upon punishment. Rather, they are based upon rehabilitation. America’s prison population exploded when companies started profiting from managing them. The number of black and brown prisoners is completely out of proportion, their sentences, too. That is simply wrong. Donald Trump pardoning his friends is wrong, too. Just ask his former attorney turned Congressional witness.
Michael Cohen tweeted about Trump turning the pardon process into a power toy to give his friends and loyalists a get-out-of-jail-free card. Case in point, Cohen highlighted the way POTUS started springing his favorite son-in-law’s father from his tainted history, along with a whole host of unworthies.
Donald Trump paid off an adult entertainer for a night of adult entertainment to keep her quiet right before the 2016 presidential election. Cohen was tasked with making the payment happen, and he did, although he had to take out another mortgage on his own house. Who went to jail? Cohen, of course.
Cohen gave an interesting perspective into “how broken the whole criminal justice system is:”
‘What happened tonight shows how broken the whole criminal justice sustem is. Despite me and family being threatened by @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, I still cooperated with a dozen federal/state agencies, Mueller, Congress…and all these criminals receive #pardons. This is wrong!’
Twitter world blew like a supervolcano, as defined by the USGS, and threw bright responses far and wide. Here are a few of our favorites below:
