    *President Trump Commutes Sentence of Sholom Rubashkin*

    Today, President Donald J. Trump commuted the prison sentence of Sholom Rubashkin, an action encouraged by bipartisan leaders from across the political spectrum, from Nancy Pelosi to Orrin Hatch.

    Mr. Rubashkin is a 57-year-old father of 10 children. He previously ran the Iowa headquarters of a family business that was the countrys largest kosher meat-processing company. In 2009, he was convicted of bank fraud and sentenced thereafter to 27 years in prison. Mr. Rubashkin has now served more than 8 years of that sentence, which many have called excessive in light of its disparity with sentences imposed for similar crimes.

    This action is not a Presidential pardon. It does not vacate Mr. Rubashkins conviction, and it leaves in place a term of supervised release and a substantial restitution obligation, which were also part of Mr. Rubashkins sentence.

    The Presidents review of Mr. Rubashkins case and commutation decision were based on expressions of support from Members of Congress and a broad cross-section of the legal community. A bipartisan group of more than 100 former high-ranking and distinguished Department of Justice (DOJ) officials, prosecutors, judges, and legal scholars have expressed concerns about the evidentiary proceedings in Mr. Rubashkins case and the severity of his sentence. Additionally, more than 30 current Members of Congress have written letters expressing support for review of Mr. Rubashkins case.

    1. “The Presidents review of Mr. Rubashkins case and commutation decision were based on expressions of support from Members of Congress and a broad cross-section of the legal community”. Very interesting how they say “& a broad cross- section of the legal community” bec today in the US we have over 30 mil Illegal Ailens who aren’t supposed 2 be here, they jumped the border, & not all communities are legal, therefore the article had 2 say from “The Legal Community” as opposed 2 “The Illegal Community”

      From the Article
    2. S.M. Rubashkiin did absolutely NOTHING ILLEGAL. The whole
      affair was a government setup started/supported by
      I.C.E. and its henchman.
      Doubts?
      Read all of Debbie Maimon’s articles (online) in
      ‘Yated’ in English.
      Just about 8 months ago, Rubashkin’s attorneys discovered
      that Judge Linda Reed (YM”S) has a husband who has
      stocks in private prison systems. So it’s beneficial to
      both of them to incarcerate people for as long a time
      as possible.
      ‘Wonderful America!’ ‘Cursed America!’
      ‘Read about ‘Kids for Cash,’ to see a similar phenomenon.
      America is a ‘Free For All.’ Do what you want. None of these
      criminals is scared by American Law or it’s threat of imprisonment.
      Time for civilization, time for: ‘The 7 Noahide Laws.’
