I said it when he was sentenced, that 14 years seemed like a lot for a corruption charge. You see violent crimes get a lot less than that, and while public corruption is terrible and needs to be punished, it’s not as bad as killing someone!

You can listen to the president’s own words and decide for yourself if you think it was the right move!
