I believe the numbers for previous presidents are for their whole time in office?
But I did read that, at same time in office (3+ years), Clinton had pardoned something like 58 and commuted 2.

Addendum: at this source - https://www.infoplease.com/us/governmen ... on-records
get a markedly different number (for pardons only) - at least for Obama - 64.

This source includes clemency: https://www.justice.gov/pardon/clemency-statistics
Runs up Obama's numbers to the 1900's.
Cheers, Pete

Interesting info, Pete. Thanks for the unbiased links.

For the life of me I cannot understand the hate and vitriol toward President Trump. Does this country not remember the last President and the constant and consistent dividing of the country that he was all about? Shall I list them? Let's start with taking the black's side on virtually every shooting without even knowing the facts. The economy tanked, yes in large part due to Bush but Obama did nothing to improve it. He apologized to every muslim country. He called us Christians names and on and on and yet, President Trump is so hated by the left. Go figure!

Just to point out, the economy started tanking when the Dems took over congress (both houses) starting January 2007, two years before the end of Bush 43's term in January 2009. Some of their policies, and proposed policies? (Obamacare, etc.?)

Very true Pete. All the more reason ESPECIALLY today that we NOT allow any Democrat in national power any longer. I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt they have proven they have become unhinged on so many levels.
