PARDONS/STEVE BANNON: “President Donald Trump issued a raft of 11th-hour pardons and commutations early Wednesday [Jan. 20, 2021] that included his onetime political strategist, a former top fundraiser and two well-known rappers but not himself or his family.

The batch of 73 pardons and 70 commutations issued in the final hours of his presidency was expected, and is in keeping with a long-standing presidential tradition of exercising clemency powers at the last minute…

But several controversial names do appear, including Steve Bannon, who has pleaded not guilty to charges he defrauded donors in a ‘We Build the Wall’ online fundraising campaign…

Other names included Tuesday were Elliott Broidy, a former top fundraiser for Trump’s campaign… The rapper Lil Wayne received a pardon after pleading guilty to a gun possession charge in Miami. Another rapper, Kodak Black, received a commutation after he pleaded guilty to a weapons charge.”
