The list price of a trump pardon was $2 million or a direct payment to donnie personally of 1 million.

I wish I could get paid $750K to make a single, unsuccessful call...

Matt "Biatch" Slapp is the worst. Except for his old lady. The only way to get a worse couple is for Betsy DeVos to marry Erik Prince.

Is paying the president to not pardon anyone a crime?

You don't lowball a lowballer. It's simply not done.

I bet that guy is pissed. And about $3/4 milllion poorer.

See?  750k is to get on the Pardon List.  I put you there myself.  You're on the list.  Now, we can talk upgrades.  We can move you up the list or we can highlight your name on the list in yellow.  Very eye catching.  For the sure fire pardon and the autographed photo of DJT, it 2 million.  I can talk them down if you have untraceable cash.  I'll even throw in Rudi.  He will review your case to see if you have ground to sue.  I hear he's really good.  Lots of results.

Why it matters: The substantial sum that the former fundraiser, Georgia's Parker "Pete" Petit, paid to Schlapp's Cove Strategies shows how valuable connections to Donald Trump were in his final days in office for wealthy felons seeking clemency from the outgoing president.

Yeah. No. Let me fix that.

The best part about the midnight pardons is laughing at all the people who thought they'd bought a pardon and then didn't get one (looking at you, Joe Exotic).

So that's the Schlapple Fact of the Day.

"Sure, I can get you a pardon.  $750K, first class all the way".  (Puts single 55-cent stamp on letter.  Sends it to North Pole)

"Hello Police?  I'd like to report a robbery.
Well, it was supposed to be a bribe, but I never got what I paid for.
You'll send someone right over? Great!"

We will always have lobbying, as long as the last phrase of the First Amendment is active.  That's what it guarantees.  I don't know if a lobbyist can work on contingent results like a lawyer or if it is malwhatever like a surgeon.

So... why is this all legal?

His mistake was paying Trump first.

I just answered that. "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"

Not seeing "and to pay off politicians and powerbrokers for favorable treatment" in there. That sounds more like bribery.

"Pay off politicians" can be made illegal, but there is no "except through representatives/lobbyists/powerbrokers​" whichever you want to call them, about the petitioning part.
