Bill Clinton's Final Day in Office

Clinton issued 141 pardons and 36 commutations on his last day in office on January 20, 2001.[30][88] Most of the controversy surrounded Marc Rich and allegations that Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, accepted payments in return for influencing the president's decision-making regarding the pardons.[89] Some of Clinton's pardons remain a point of controversy.[90]
The 1996 United States campaign finance controversy was an alleged effort by the People's Republic of China (PRC) to influence the domestic policies of the United States, prior to and during the Clinton administration and also involved the fundraising practices of the administration itself.

Bill Clinton and his administration will be remembered for lots of things, but assuredly one of them will be the rush of pardons, commutations, agency regulations, expensive parties, solicitation of gifts, and plea-bargaining that marked Clinton's last month in office two centuries later.
Barbara Olson was a former federal prosecutor, legal analyst and counsel to a congressional committee – all of which she brought to bear to produce this hard-hitting, by no means neutral, report centered on the actions of those last few days. I say "centered on" because the book does not limit itself to those events but allows itself to recall a good many other abuses by Bill and Hillary Clinton over a span of several years, going back to their days in the Arkansas governor's office. The result is a brief book (240 pages) that, in addition to being a fascinating read and bringing together in one place the actions of the final days, serves as a useful compendium of the whole sordid history.
