Obama Commutes the Prison Sentences of 58 Federal Convicts, Including 18 Who Were Given Life Sentences

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration on Thursday commuted the prison sentences of 58 federal convicts, including 18 who were given life sentences.

The action is part of a broader effort to overhaul the criminal justice system and ease punishments for nonviolent drug offenders.

Most whose sentences were cut short are now due out on Sept. 2, though some will be released over the next two years.

This will be nothing compared to the amount he will commutes on his last day in office. Bill Clinton did the same thing on his last day too. Party boss favor pay back.

What they aren't telling everyone is that 51 of these convict were black.
He is taking care of his own and letting them also register to vote!

Clinton's pardons were mostly, to twist things a bit, unpardonable.

Expect the same from Hillary. All of her criminal buddies and financial supporters will walk.
