Trump’s Last Day Could See as Many as 100 Pardons

Just who will be featured on the long list is anyone’s guess.

If there is one thing that could be said for Donald Trump’s first foray into politics, it is that there was nothing boring about it.

The NYC business mogul was elected in large part due to his promise to shake things up on the beltway from day one.  He was meant to be some sort of disruptor against the status quo, and there is no denying that he’s given it his all.

Now, with less than 48 hours remaining in his first term, Trump looks to be going out with a bang as well, preparing to issue as many as 100 pardons, possibly as late as Tuesday or Wednesday.

President Trump is expected to issue between 50 and 100 commutations and pardons before he leaves office this week, two sources familiar with the list told Fox News.

The sources told Fox News that the announcement of the pardons will likely come in one large batch on Tuesday, but there is a slight chance the White House will wait to make them official Wednesday morning. The president has until noon on Wednesday to do so.

Fox News has learned that there was a meeting at the White House on Sunday afternoon to finalize the growing list of pardons and commutations. But sources with knowledge of the process say Trump is not expected to grant protective pardons for any members of his family, nor is he expected to attempt to issue a pardon for himself.

Despite an aggressive campaign by WikiLeaks to try to secure a pardon for its founder Julian Assange, the president is not expected to give him one.

There’s no indication yet as to whether or not any of those arrested in the storming of the Capitol on January 6th will be recipients of the pardons, after several of the accused have publicly requested them.
