Expat means you stay in a country for years but have no intention of changing your citizenship. Immigrants do.

Where did you find this definition?  It doesn't sound like a Merriam Webster or Wikipedia definition.

Expats are no better than immigrants.  I thought expats are called that by people from their home country.  The people in the country they moved to use other names like farangs, gringos, immigrants, guests, tourists, etc.

In my case, I have reservations to vacation in the Dominican Republic in early November for a week. (I don’t know how many days until the trip.)

I was just over there a couple of months ago. By the end of the week, I had enough of the place; but I should be more enthusiastic before November. Otherwise, I will cancel. There are nice girls there also.

And on a sensible note, by accepting a pardon, one admits guilt and having a pardon one cannot re-litigate the trial. Sentencing is part of the process for which, one has been pardoned, to have a go at the sentencers is moot.

If one was innocent, the trial and sentence would have been set aside. No need for a pardon.

Ford pardoned Nixon for any crimes he may have committed while president.  Trump could pardon anybody under investigation, including himself, for any crimes they may have committed.  The president, however, is not above the law.  The law allows him to do this.  Should the law be changed? The law also says the president can be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors....
