On his way out the door, Donald Trump issued about 70 pardons and a similar number of commutations.
Along with the usual suspects, people who might testify against him and Jared’s dad, we do have some mild surprises:
- Randall “Duke” Cunningham, whose corruption was legendary. (He literally had a menu of bribes)
- Steve Bannon. probably because he knows where the bodies are buried.
- Kwame Kilpatrick,(D) who got 28 years for rampant corruption as Mayor of Detroit.
- A bunch of entertainers.
- Aviem Sella, Jonathan Pollard’s handler for Israel.
None of these are much of a surprise, except perhaps Kilpatrick.
Trump has now slithered out of the White House, so that should be the end of it.
