So this is typical. Really?



No. So far, it's just a tiny drop in the bucket.

Quote:
In one more end-of-presidency act of clemency aimed at prisoners serving long sentences for drug-related offenses, President Obama announced Thursday that he is commuting the sentences of 330 prisoners. He has granted clemency to more people than any president since Harry S. Truman,1 and Thursday’s announcement was typical of how Obama’s approach to clemency has differed from that of his predecessors: Obama’s clemency is almost always given by freeing people from prison with commuted sentences, not pardoning people after their release.

On Tuesday, with less than a week left in office, Obama granted clemency to 273 federal inmates, including Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst who was convicted in 2013 of disclosing sensitive information to WikiLeaks. Manning’s commutation was one of 209 that Obama made Tuesday; with the 330 from Thursday, his total number of commutations is now 1,715, more than any other president in history, according to the White House. Obama also issued 64 pardons this week.

Obama has granted dozens of pardons and commutations about once a month since August, and in December, he gave clemency to a record 231 federal inmates on a single day — a record that he broke on Tuesday and again on Thursday.

Seems the same to me.

Quote:
By the end of his presidency on January 20, 2017, Barack Obama had exercised his constitutional power to grant executive clemency—that is, "pardon, commutation of sentence, remission of fine or restitution, and reprieve"—to 1,927 individuals convicted of federal crimes.

Not the same.  Scooter Libby already was given Clemecy by GWB.  Trump gave him a full pardon.  Clemecy only commutes your sentence.  That means you either don't have to serve time or given a shorter sentence.  Obama did that for non violent drug offenders.

Dear Billy Pissant, Trump bashers, and Obama butt boys,
From the Daily Mail UK
Obama pardons 78 felons and commutes 153 more as White House boasts of 'greatest number of individual clemencies in a single day'
Record for clemencies is set by Obama as he lets scores off for their federal crimes or their sentences 
Obama is vacationing in Hawaii but White House Counsel Neil Eggleston boasted of 'his belief that America is a nation of second chances'
The White House did not immediately release a list of who had been pardoned 

From the White House web site:
President Obama Has Now Granted More Commutations than Any President in this Nation’s History
