Trump should pardon Hillary Clinton. It would drive her insane.

If Trump pardons Hillary Clinton, he’ll be doing two smart things: First, he’ll be putting an end to an investigation that, thanks to BleachBit and the Clinton code of omertà, is almost certain to go nowhere. The Clintons have millions of dollars to take care of Huma Abedin, the IT guys and anyone else who has definitive proof of criminal activity.

And as much as the talk-radio base may not want to admit it, most Americans are in “move on” mode. They’re hopeful about the future (the same Fox News poll finds 56 percent of Americans believe the economy will improve under Trump), and they’ve had enough of the seemingly endless Clinton investigations.

The second benefit of a Clinton pardon is that it gives the grassroots GOP base what it truly wants: A final, incontrovertible verdict of “guilty” for Hillary. Today’s pardon will be history’s acknowledgement that she’s the O.J. Simpson of politics: She’s guilty and got away with it.

The Clintons will absolutely hate a Trump pardon, but what’s Hillary going to do—reject it? Fine. Then President Trump can tweet: “Whatever you say, Mrs. Clinton—I’ll send the special prosecutor right over.” Rejecting a pardon means inviting an investigation. If that’s what the Democrats want, they can’t complain when Jim Jordan and Trey Gowdy spend the next 12 months grilling former Hillary staffers on C-SPAN 3.
