The action, taken in the waning minutes of Trump’s presidency, is the latest in a flurry of more than 140 pardons and commutations.
In the closing minutes of his presidency, President Donald Trump issued a full pardon for Albert J. Pirro Jr., who was convicted in 2000 on conspiracy and tax evasion charges.
The pardon for Pirro, who has in the past worked for Trump, is the latest in a flurry of more than 140 last-minute pardons and commutations that the president issued overnight to loyalists, such as alt-right provocateur and former aide Steve Bannon, and celebrities, including rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black.
Pirro is the former husband of Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, who has staunchly supported Trump throughout his presidency. The couple divorced in 2013.
