Trump Pardons Billy Walters

Nice departing gesture. Maybe it's a payback for his golf losses.

side note: Billy watch you back. The feds are a vindictive bunch as you know.

    Are they good friends or maybe this was a “pay-to-play” pardon? Also, I have a vague recollection that Walters’ sentence was getting toward the end by now, no?

    They let him out of prison due to Covid safety. He served 2.5 years. The remainder of his 5 year sentence was to be served under house arrest at his residence in SDiego. "Standup guy" Lefty Mickelson should've served along side him.

    They hired someone in good with Trump to pitch to Trump. If you are in good a little crime goes with the territory.

    I don’t really know anything about Walters except a book I read called “The Smart Money” which reportedly starred Walters without actually naming him. He doesn’t really seem like the kind of guy who would write a book himself, which is kind of a shame because once he’s gone, all that knowledge he has is gone as well (not counting his closest associates).
