Trump To Issue Roughly 100 Pardons on Tuesday: Report

In his last full day in office, President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to issue a final slew of around 100 pardons and commutations.

CNN reported that White House officials met on Sunday to hammer out the details of the final list of pardons, which they expect the president to announce on Tuesday.

Trump’s term will end at noon on January, 20.

The network reports that the president is planning to issue “a mix of criminal justice reform-minded pardons” and pardons for political allies. Additionally, aides told the network they believe that this will be the last list of pardons from Trump unless he issues pardons for himself and his family members.

Trump has reportedly considered granting himself a pardon. However, advisers have urged the president to avoid such due to fears it may make him look guilty.

Some of the individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6 are also seeking presidential pardons or clemency as they claim they entered the building following an “invitation” from Trump. 

However, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) warned pardoning individuals who stormed the Capitol would “destroy President Trump.”

During an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, Graham said, “I don’t care if you went and spread flowers on the floor, you breached the security of the Capitol, interrupted a joint session of Congress, you tried to intimidate, assault, you should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and to seek a pardon of these people would be wrong.”

He added, “I think it would destroy President Trump, and I hope we don’t go down that road.”

Since the election, Trump has issued several controversial pardons that have drawn bipartisan criticism, as IJR reported.

The New York Times reports that some of Trump’s allies have raked in thousands of dollars in fees from wealthy felons who hope the president’s allies will help secure a pardon for them.

    1. Bernadette, the unemployment rate was 4.8% when Trump took office. As he leaves it is 6.8%. If your memory goes back to 2016, R’s were not pleased with 4.8%—-I realize hypocrisy is your badge of honor, but it is hard to take you seriously. If your car is less fuel efficient, is the small difference in the gas price worth even bringing up? Here is what the oil and gas companies felt about Trump: politico.com/news/2020/10/27/trump-oil-gas-industry-432722

  1. Poor John. You ignorant twit. Look BAC to history of obammy and the mental giant Biden and you might cringe at what we will have to endure for the next few years. Don’t forget that we got Trump because of those two goobers deeds

    1. Obama ranked 12th BEST of all POTUS. How do you see Trump faring when C-Span releases the new rankings next month? Here are the criteria on which Trump will be ranked:
      Public Persuasion—Could convince his supporters the sky was green and grass blue.
      Crisis Leadership—-400,000 COVID deaths in 1 year.
      Economic Management–unemployment 4.8% Jan 2017–6.8% Jan. 2021
      Moral Authority—Dear Lord.
      International Relations–did fine with dictators, not so much with democratic world leaders.
      Administrative Skills—zilch
      Relations with Congress—really poor.
      Vision / Setting an Agenda–
      Pursued Equal Justice For All–Did anyone tell him this was part of the ranking criteria??
      Performance Within Context of Times

    2. That’s really funny Dicker….
      100% of Trump’s WH aides question his intelligence and fitness for office
      Chief economic advisor Gary Cohen said that trump was “dumb as shit”
      HR McMaster considered trump a “dope”
      Rex Tillerson called trump a “moron”
      Perfect words to describe Trump’s mental prowess…lol

  2. Just 45 hrs and 46 minutes until the worth less than shit TRAITOR is out of the presidency he was never fit for or worthy of.

      1. The only suckers are the TRAITORS who enable, promote, and support the LOSER TRAITOR trumpuke. The absolute worst abortion of a man and president in history.

      2. You should have been warned, Tom.
        Now you’ve aggravated the Biden buzzards. They lurk here just waiting for a chance to pounce with their adolescent thoughts and language.

        1. Well Choo Choo. I believe it’s better to be a “Biden Buzzard” than a “Trump Traitor” like you! 😉

    1. Hate to tell you but 100 million believed he was the BEST POTUS. What we’re getting 1/20/21 won’t be half as good as Jimmy Carter. Hope you love America.

      1. Just shows then that there’s 100 million idiots and gullible fools. Lol. I think your figure is about 500,000 too high though. WE are the majority Ronald McDonald.

      2. Ron I warned you. They pounce on a chance to “educate/indoctrinate” you with their unsubstantiated “facts” and of course their childish and offensive rhetoric.
        Why they think the condescension will change anyone mind about liberals is puzzling.

      3. How can 100 million believe he’s the best? Only 77,000,000 voted for him and he lost.

        1. Patti: after 5 years of believing ALL of Dear Leader’s lies, what makes us think that they will suddenly start dealing with reality now?

  3. For any of you who want to further understand what has happened since the November election leading up to Dear Leader’s insurrection, ‘Scientic American’ has a short interview of Forensic Psychiatrist Bandi X. Lee explaining some of the psychosis affecting Cult-45. Since our resident psychoanalist Surely, has no interest in helping any of you, why not pay attention to a real professional?

    1. cult 45? your brainwashing is complete i see. you want to silence and reeducate anybody that doesn’t agree with you, that is how a real cult operates

      1. Well let me pose this question to you Tom. If YOU’RE brainwashed, would you be able to know If others were actually brainwashed?? Think about it and get back to me.

      2. Actually the cult of tRump is based on people who believe all the lies tRump has been spewing these last 4 years. Suckers! Lol

  4. I am certain that, at this stage after losing and based on his previous pardons, King Donald The Loser doesn’t care or worry about how much more chaos he causes with society.

    1. 100 compared to obamas 1900 which included terrorist leaders. and you are really proud to be this uninformed?

      1. Try being a little more factual. Obama pardoned 212 people and granted clemency to 1715. There is a serious difference between the 2. Those granted clemency still have their conviction. It doesn’t go away like it does with a pardon.

      2. Despite the unconscionable number of people in prison in the US, the QUANTITY is not so much the problem, tom, as I see it.

        It is the TYPE of criminal that he releases. Do YOU approve of releasing convicted war criminals back onto to our streets early? Do YOU approve of King Donald The Loser releasing his corrupted friends and social elite buddies early? Do YOU approve of His Majesty releasing white collar criminals and criminal politicians who probably adversely and directly affected YOU? (There is also the possibility of him releasing prisoners through a pay-to-release scheme, too.)

        If you do approve of any of this, then you need some professional help, tom.

      3. You would be much more effective in debating Tom, if you did your homework and had FACTS to it backup
