In the 1980s, Michael Milken developed and expanded the market for junk bonds - becoming known as the junk bond king. The funding enabled several corporate takeovers and precipitated the failure of several savings and loan institutions - costing taxpayers an estimated $500 billion.

In 1990 he was charged with 98 criminal counts, including racketeering, insider trading, and fraud. He pleaded guilty to six lesser charges.

Milken spent almost 2 years in prison and was fined $600 million. He also was banned from the securities industry.

Differences of perspective

In 1990, the Washington Post wrote that Milken was guilty of six of the most serious criminal charges ever filed against a business executive of his stature.

"Not half a dozen technical violations of obscure regulations, but ... six crimes that any juror or video viewer can understand: cheating his customers by overcharging them on bond deals, secretly rigging securities prices, helping his friends cheat on their taxes, mail fraud, securities fraud, conspiracy," the editorial stated.

The White House press release of Milken's pardon states...

"Milken was charged in an indictment alleging that some of his innovative financing mechanisms were in fact criminal schemes.  The charges filed against Mr. Milken were truly novel.  In fact, one of the lead prosecutors later admitted that Mr. Milken had been charged with numerous technical offenses and regulatory violations that had never before been charged as crimes."

Donald Trump ()

Trump has not been convicted of a federal crime, so he has no reason to pardon himself. He is, however, part of an investigation into his campaign's and his businesses' ties to Russia, and has explored the possibility.

He claims to have the power to issue a self-pardon. However, that power cannot be fully determined unless he (or a future president) attempts it.

Though a president's pardon power extends to federal crimes only, it is unclear about the ability to issue a pardon for a state crime if a pardon has been given for the same federal issue.

A presidential self-pardon does not immunize a president from impeachment.
