    Yours, then.

    A simple "none of the above" would've sufficed.

    They did. They found him guilty.

    Those years were back in the 80s when I only knew the joke from t-shirts sold in Soldier of Fortune.

    This was a war that he opposed.

    Constitutional. Article II, Section 2.

    It is indeed a check and a balance. It checks the power of the judiciary by giving those charged with a crime recourse outside the judicial system.

    The judiciary does not carry the law out. The judiciary interprets the law. The executive carried it out - which is why the power of pardon rests with the executive.

    He can only those convicted of federal crimes. Pardons for state crimes must be given by the Governor of the state.

    What do you suppose the power of pardon is for? The case against the pardon can't merely be "Lt. Behenna committed a crime!" Of course he committed a crime. The President can't pardon someone who wasn't convicted of a crime.

    Irrelevant.

    Moral?

    Charged and convicted... let's not forget that.

    A crime the president approves of.
