Perhaps I'm missing something, I admit I haven't looked into it thoroughly, but pardoning Charles Kushner is probably one of the most least significant and least damaging things Tr*mp has done in the past... long while. Demanding that the son of a man Tr*mp pardoned speak on the subject, in my opinion, speaks more to people's desire for messy drama than anything else. Joshua Kushner's opinion on his father being pardoned has no bearing on... anything? 16/17 years ago Charles Kushner was under investigation for illegal donations to political candidates/causes, and I guess his sister/brother-in-law were helping in the investigation so he hired an escort to sleep with his brother-in-law as retaliation, I believe? Clearly this family is messy as hell, but he was convicted, sentenced to a couple of years in prison, and has been a free man since serving his sentence. This pardon seems more symbolic than anything else. Presidents pardon actual criminals all the time, for various reasons, I'm guessing because they think the person was over-punished or has turned over a new leaf or, realistically, because that person knows someone who knows someone. President Obama pardoned around 2,000 people as president. Do you think each and every one of those was a wonderful, innocent individual? And that's not a criticism of Obama. That's the president's power! Unless the power is being used to put dangerous violent people back into society or withhold punishment from privileged people who deserve punishment (which Tr*mp has absolutely done with some of his pardons), I don't see an issue. In the case of Charles Kushner, he already served his time in prison, paid a hefty fine, and was disbarred in 3 states. This pardon was basically purely symbolic, in my opinion, and would not even be remotely controversial on its own, it's only the nepotism angle that puts it in salacious light.
