Clinton's Pardons, Why Hillary Won't Be Elected

Hey guys, here's my biggest reason for not making Clinton the nominee, she will be destroyed by spin from the Clinton pardons.
A fugitive being prosecuted for tax evasion and illegal dealings with the Iranians (Good Job) during the hostage crisis (even better)
who then fled to switzerland.
Why is this controversial? Aside from the fact that he fled, and was absolutely guilty for a ridiculously bad crime, that he did no time for....
His ex-wife was also made substantial donations to the Clinton library, which she did before requesting his pardon.
Oh, did I mention he was a suspected middleman in the oil 4 food scandal.
Yeah, how could that be a huge, undeniable scandal?
Convicted of systematic fraud and perjury, he was pardoned. Which isn't so notable, except that Hugh Rodham, Hillary's brother was paid 200,000 dollars to represent him in his case for clemency. He returned the money when it was disclosed. Nevertheless, the fact remains he accepted money, and is Hillary's brother
Edgar and Vonna Jo Gregory

He also received 107,000 dollars in loans from them ,he never repaid, until ordered to do so by congress.

Convicted terrorist inside the U.S. who killed six people and injured numerous others, and set off 120 bombs.
I dare say, I don't need to specify why this is bad.
Of course, Clinton let them go at the behest of Jimmy Carter and a bunch of Nobel Peace prize winners, and they had already served 19 years to their sentences, but still, it looks bad, and does a thirty second spot by the 527 People Angry About Clinton's Pardons For Truth need to note that?
The fact that two of these are directly tied to Hillary's siblings is a death knell.
The fact that one of them is by a guy with illegal dealings with Iran and possibly Iraq, and this involves the donation rolls for the library the Clintons refuse to disclose is even worse.
She can't win general with this kind of a record, no amount of vetting will save her from this.
