Axios: Trump Plans to Issue Pardons on Friday
President Donald Trump is expected to issue a wave of pre-Christmas pardons on Friday.
According to Axios, Trump has been pondering pardons for friends and allies and plans on following through with some of those.
However, the website said it is unclear who will be included in this batch of pardons.
Trump had pardoned former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Nov. 25. Flynn was the second Trump associate convicted in the Russia probe to be granted clemency by the president. Trump commuted the sentence of longtime adviser Roger Stone just days before he was to report to prison.
Axios noted that Trump has considered other pardons, including a possible one for his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
