It’s up to Biden now.
Biden has freed some of the worst Al Qaeda terrorists from Gitmo, including an alternate 9/11 hijacker. But since the Boston Marathon bomber was tried in a civilian court, he would have to offer to pardon Muslim terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Bernie Sanders, even sans pardon, already said that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. should be able to vote.
Presumably for Bernie.
To vote, he’ll have to be alive and justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Breyer lost their bid to block Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death penalty.
The Supreme Court case at issue was based on an attempt to claim that because the court case had not allowed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers to submit evidence of a previous triple murder involving Jewish victims that they were not able to properly argue that he was just his brother’s pawn.
The entire line of argument here was dishonest and dumb. While Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s brother was no doubt the lead terrorist, Dzhokhar was on board and took part in the massacre of Americans for Islam. And there’s no telling which way the jury might have jumped when presented with evidence that this wasn’t just a one-off, but it’s not likely that they would have gone easy on Dzhokhar.
Justice Clarence Thomas rightly shot down the effort by Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayor to protect the Muslim terrorist who may never get the chance to vote for Bernie Sanders or AOC.
