Flashback: I Beg Your Pardon

President Bill Clinton pardons friend Marc Rich and Rich's partner Pincus Green on January 20, 2001. Their convictions were for wire fraud, mail fraud, racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, criminal forfeiture, income tax evasion, and trading with Iran in violation of trade embargo.

Well, at least they didn't lie to investigators about it. :-P

'My Reasons for the Pardons' By William Jefferson Clinton:
The suggestion that I granted the pardons because Mr. Rich's former wife, Denise, made political contributions and contributed to the Clinton library foundation is utterly false.
