Trump to Issue Almost 100 Pardons on Final Day in Office
On his final full day in office, President Donald Trump is expected to issue close to 100 pardons and commutations on Tuesday.
Despite rampant speculation, the President is not expected to pardon himself, family members, or close aides before exiting the White House.
The White House, according to multiple sources, hosted a meeting on Sunday to finalize the list of pardons.
While the full speculated list of pardons has not been officially revealed, it is expected to feature a mix of criminal justice reform-minded and white collar pardons.
This, along with a few pending executive orders, are expected to be Trump’s final actions before his term officially expires on January 20 at noon.
The President has announced that he will not be attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
