Okay but here's the thing.

Richard Nixon - Pardoned/commuted/rescinded the convictions/sentences of 926 people.
Gerald Ford - 409
Jimmy Carter - 566 (not including the blanket pardon of Vietnam War draft evaders)
Ronald Reagan - 406
George H.W. Bush - 77
Bill Clinton - 459
George W. Bush - 200
Barack Obama - 1,927
Donald Trump - 94 (as of this post.)

Again where the political traction going to come from to get rid of something both sides have used this much?
