The Sins John Edwards Did Not Commit

John Edwards did not lie to get America into a war that has cost more than 4,000 American lives.

John Edwards did not commit acts of torture that violate the Geneva Conventions, American laws and commonly accepted standards of decency.

John Edwards did not commit massive acts of violation of the FISA law that involve thousands of counts of spying on Americans in violation of federal law.

John Edwards did not slander war heroes such as John Kerry and Max Cleland in the mindless pursuit of power.

John Edwards did not claim pre-emptive power to initiate wars without authorization, nor did John Edwards claim the power to issue pieces of paper that would negate a thousand American laws that he chose not to faithfully execute.

John Edwards did not claim executive privilege in the most outrageous, extra-legal manner in order to cover up major wrongdoing and probable criminal acts by multiple members of his administration.

John Edwards's sin hurt one very good woman and good kids, which is an unpardonable wrong.

John Edwards will not issue pardons for crimes that did grave damage to the nation.
