Trump floats possibility of pardoning Muhammad Ali

Ali isn't the only one Trump is thinking of pardoning.
They spoke out after the president made the offer as he departed the White House for the G7 summit in Quebec Friday, telling reporters he was "thinking about Muhammad Ali" for the latest in a spate of pardons.
Trump said numerous 3,000 people he was considering for pardons were treated unfairly or given unfairly long sentences.
Last week, Trump told reporters he was considering pardoning Martha Stewart and commuting the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. "None of that", he told CNN.
"I ain't got no quarrel with the Viet Cong", Ali said.

Ali's lawyer responded to the president's idea, saying although they appreciate the sentiment, however, the boxer's conviction has already been vacated by the Supreme Court and a pardon is not necessary.
It's safe to say that President Trump is throwing a pardon party. But he had converted to Islam in 1964 (changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali), and refused to serve for religious reasons. Ali died in 2016.
Ali had told the draft board that he was a pacifist opposed to fighting in the Vietnam War because of his religion.
His decision resulted in a draft-evasion conviction, and he was stripped of his heavyweight boxing crown in 1967. His license to box was suspended in NY the same day, and his title stripped; other boxing commissions followed. He lost his boxing licenses for three years until the New York Supreme Court ordered his licenses be reinstated in 1970.
Ali's legal fight ended in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in his favour, reversing his conviction on a technicality.
CNN reported on Wednesday that the White House has assembled the paperwork to pardon dozens of people, according to two sources with knowledge of the developments.
