  •  What about pardons? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I mean, I know we haven't HEARD about any pardons (other than 2 minor ones a couple days ago). But how do we know Bush didn't sign any others just before noon today? What I'm asking is this: What is the procedural process of a president signing/issuing pardons? Does that signing have to be publicly ANNOUNCED within a certain time? Or might we, in a few days, hear, "We've just learned that just before leaving office on Tuesday, Bush issued numerous pre-emptive pardons to members of his administration."...
