The president shouldn’t be able to issue pardons and reprieves without notifying the public, especially if they’re issuing pardons related to an investigation they or their associates may be involved in.
The president isn’t required to make information about pardons and reprieves public, and it’s not clear that Congress has the constitutional authority to require that they be disclosed. This bill is purely political.
