|On Bill Clinton’s last day of office in 2001 he pardoned 140 people. Nearly a dozen of them committed crimes ranging for serious white collar infringements to child pornography.
In 1999 Bill pardoned sixteen convicted members of a Puerto Rican terrorist organization responsible for 120 explosions that took the lives of six people and injured many more. The groups’ sentences ranged from 35 years to 105 years in prison.
Adding to the scandal was Bill’s refusal to turn over documents that influenced his decision to give the group members clemency.
