    There is going to be no prosecution of Bush administration officials for their torture policies. I was arguing that if he was forced to pardon them he would at least be forced to acknowledge he broke the law.

    Unlike now where he'll be able to claim he broke no laws because no prosecution was attempted. He's not going to be prosecuted the country doesn't have the political will or attention span to sit through a trial of that magnitude.
