Democrat Ex-Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Begs for Pardon Ahead of Sentencing on Federal Fraud Conviction

A Democrat former top prosecutor is begging President Joe Biden for clemency while awaiting sentencing on perjury and mortgage fraud convictions.

Marilyn Mosby, once the state’s attorney in Baltimore, Maryland, is seeking a pardon to avoid likely prison time, Fox News reports.

Mosby claims she is the victim of political persecution, despite the fact that similar arguments raised by President Donald Trump generally fall on deaf ears among her Democratic Party colleagues.

During sentencing, prosecutors will request that she receive at least 20 months incarceration

However, she faces the theoretical possibility of 40 years in prison.

Ahead of a sentencing date, Mosby has initiated a request for a presidential pardon.

Mosby’s efforts have garnered the backing of the Congressional Black Caucus.

The group’s members have since submitted a letter to the White House in support.

Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV), the caucus chair, has taken up Mosby’s cause.

“As a national that leads by example, our justice system must not be weaponized to prevent progress toward a more perfect union,” Horsford wrote.

Mosby has attempted to make the case herself in the court of public opinion.

She recently appeared on MSNBC to argue why a pardon in her case would be appropriate.

“I know that I have done absolutely nothing wrong, nothing criminal, nothing to be separated from my children for 40 years as a result of withdrawing $90,000 of my own money,” she claimed.

“It makes absolutely no sense.”

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, a liberal radio show, Mosby blamed the Trump Justice Department for her predicament and for “malicious prosecution.”

“This is all related to this prior administration,” she claimed.

“Who has the power now to do something about that is this administration.”

The former prosecutor’s characterization of her convictions, however, is clearly at odds with what a jury decided last November as well as in February.

Last year, she was convicted on two counts of perjury related to her assertion of financial hardship during the pandemic.

This allowed her to prematurely withdraw funds from her retirement accounts.

She was also convicted on one count of mortgage fraud related to false statements made on loan applications that facilitated her purchase of a pair of vacation properties in Florida.

Despite federal prosecutors’ demands that she serve at least 20 months in prison, Mosby has requested that she receive probation only.

Or, in the alternative, she is hoping to obtain a pardon from Biden.

Federal prosecutors have remained firm on their position that Mosby deserves time behind bars, as CBS News reports.

Prosecutors note that she has demonstrated a lack of “respect” and “accepts no responsibility” for her actions.

“Mosby has repeatedly and publicly demonstrated that she accepts no responsibility for her actions, has no respect for this court’s rulings, and lacks honesty with the public and candor before this court,” the DOJ said in a filing.

Lawyers for the soon-to-be-sentenced former state’s attorney have declared:

“Ms. Mosby has a First Amendment right to state her opinion on the prosecution and the case…

“She has a continuing constitutional right to proclaim her innocence and protest to prosecution.”

Yet, this is a concept that most Democrats have curiously and routinely denied applies to President Trump.
