Abstract:

"This dissertation, the first examination of the pardon power's historical, legal, and political aspects since 1941, offers an in-depth examination of the history and development of the American clemency power, including the key legal decisions that helped determine the clemency power's nature, extent, and limits. I consider how pre-Watergate "political" pardons differed from those made after the scandal. Then, I analyze case studies of President Gerald Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon, President George H.W. Bush's pardon of Iran-Contra figures, President Bill Clinton's "last minute" pardons, and President George W. Bush's commutation of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's prison sentence in determining the current state of the clemency power."
