Prescient


George Mason, a father of the founding variety, had objections that kept him from signing the Constitution. One of those objections, in his words, was:
The President of the United States has the unrestrained power of granting pardons for treason, which may be sometimes exercised to screen from punishment those whom he had secretly instigated to commit the crime, and thereby prevent a discovery of his own guilt.
It's as if the guy had crystal balls.
