9:49 PM Why does the President get the power to grant clemency to criminals? Doesn’t that imply that he is above the law?

According to Wikipedia:

The pardon power of the President extends only to offenses cognizable under U.S. Federal law. However, the governors of most states have the power to grant pardons or reprieves for offenses under state criminal law. In other states, that power is committed to an appointed agency or board, or to a board and the governor in some hybrid arrangement.

7:27 PM Today I got these, for a really good price (half off what they’re selling for in-store and online at Foot Locker and other places).
