    WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton will not get a pardon from President Obama.

    If Obama is to be kept to his word, neither will former CIA director David Petraeus, convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, intelligence contractor Edward Snowden or Pvt. Chelsea Manning, all of whom were accused or convicted of mishandling classified information.

    The reason is simple: None of them has applied to the Office of the Pardon Attorney for executive clemency.

    Trump said he might not bring charges because he "doesn't want to hurt the Clintons". On the other hand Clapper suddenly put in his resignation from the FBI, finding "no fault with Comey". However it is also designated to FBI law they must investigate National Security e-mails, 2,100 marked "classified, to see if there were any consequences because of being unsecured. News to us. Comey said they were looked over, but they were not investigated.

    So some Republicans are concerned that Trump in reality has turned out to be just a cuddly ol' teddy bear.

    Clinton doesn't need to be pardoned from anything. She hasn't committed any crimes
