After months of uproar from figures across the political spectrum – spearheaded largely by the right, Matthew Charles, a non-violent drug offender is expected to freed from prison in the next 24 hours.
This massive development comes because of President Donald Trump’s First Step Act, which gives some non-violent offenders the possibility of reduced sentences.
Charles had spent over twenty years in prison when he was given early in release on 2016. After being released, he integrated back into society, found steady work and a girlfriend.
But his 2016 release was due to a mistake. You see, Charles was labeled as a career offender, meaning there was no option for him to have his sentence reduced.
So despite serving as a model citizen for two years, he was forced back into prison last year.
Following this news, many figures on the right came out in support of Charles, urging President Trump to pardon him.
While that pardon isn’t coming, Charles’ release is. And it’s due to the policies of President Trump.
This isn’t the first act of compassion Trump has given to non-violent offenders.
In June of last year, the president granted a pardon to yet another non-violent drug offender, Alice Marie Johnson.
Johnson, a great grandmother who got caught up in the drug trade while facing difficult times, was granted the pardon following a meeting between the president and Kim Kardashian West. Kardashian West is a vocal advocate for criminal justice report, and along with her husband, Kanye West, is believed to be a strong influence on the president’s views on the issue.
Karadashian West took to Twitter to thank Trump for his role in helping Charles get his freedom back.
Just got word that Matthew Charles will be coming home within 24 hours. Thank you @realDonaldTrump for signing the 1st step act. This is what true bipartisanship can accomplish. https://t.co/9EnwDSksfw

President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts
Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.
President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.
He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.
I hope all Republican House Members vote NO on FISA until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.
The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…
Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.
Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”
“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.
“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.
President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.
“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.
The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
