Professor Bainbridge makes a good point in this post. Of all the things that happened during the Clinton administration that could be deemed potentially corrupt, the pardon of Mark Rich was far and way (in my opinion) the worst act. There was absolutely no justification for it - the pardon power may be plenary - but that doesn't mean this was not a clear case of corruption.

It will certainly be brought up if Hillary runs for President. She probably will, and may very well be able to, deny any knowledge of it. And it may be true that she had no knowledge about this pardon. But if anything ties her to it, it will be a very heavy bag indeed.
