Who did Donald Trump pardon on his way out of the White House?

WASHINGTON D.C. — During his last day as President of the United States of America, Donald Trump decided to pardon 140 people including rappers, former politicians, family members and a number of his allies.

Trump is no stranger to the Presidential pardon. His last-minute antics saw 73 individuals pardoned and 70 sentences commuted.

The headliners of President Trump’s pardons are not a mix one might associate together under different circumstances. Notably, Trump pardoned his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon. Bannon pleaded not guilty to charges of defrauding donors in an online fundraising campaign.

In fairness, a portion of the individuals pardoned were championed by criminal justice reform advocates. A number of them were serving lengthy sentences for low-level offenses that were brought to the 45th President’s attention over time.

While Bannon is a notable figure in the political realm, he’s not the most famous person to be pardoned.

Musical artist Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. was amongst those on Trump’s list. More commonly known by his stage name, Lil Wayne, Carter recently pleaded guilty to a gun possession charge in Miami, FL.

Another popular rapper, Bill Kahan Kapri A.K.A. Kodak Black was pardoned by former President Trump. Kapri received a commutation after pleading guilty to a gun possession charge.

There are no ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ cards in the game of life but there are some strings to be pulled for the President of the United States.
