President Donald Trump on Wednesday granted clemency to five people convicted of committing drug and financial crimes, all of them cases that were pushed by prison reform advocate and Trump ally Alice Johnson.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Wednesday in a statement, Trump was granting the clemencies “in light of the decisions these individuals have made following their convictions to improve their lives and the lives of others while incarcerated.”

The latest round of clemencies comes less than two weeks before Election Day and as Trump has been hammering Democrat Joe Biden over his tough-on-crime record during his time in the U.S. Senate. Biden, as head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, helped shepherd the 1994 crime bill that many criminal justice experts say contributed to harsh sentences and mass incarceration of Black people.

    Biden is a bad man. A racist. A bigot. Should of caught passes instead.

    • A lesson in government. The Congress makes laws. The President enacts the law that Congress makes. The Supreme Court rules on the adherence to the Constitution of the laws that Congress makes and the President enacts. Simple but dignified.
