    GHW Bush pardoned Caspar Weinberger, among others 11 others, in December 1992. In the first months of his term he pardoned Armand Hammer---even though Reagan had just turned him down. Joe Conason in Salon

    Reagan pardoned Mark Felt in April 1981.

    Ford pardoned Nixxon in September 1974.
