The renowned newspaper, USA Today, saw that President Donald Trump is using his power to save allies from legal risks, considering that he is mocking the traditional presidential pardon process, and the newspaper stated – in a report that Trump, who has always taken advantage of the authority to grant clemency as a political tool issued a final wave of pardons and reduced sentences on his last night in the office, providing relief to a mix of beneficiaries including former White House adviser Steve Bannon, one of the most prominent Republican fundraising campaigners Elliot Broidy and former Detroit Mayor Kwame. Kilpatrick.

A White House press release stated that Trump granted amnesty to 73 people and reduced sentences issued against 70 others, and the USA Today quoted legal analysts as saying that Trump had transformed the presidential pardon into a personal project designed to reward friends and political supporters.

It noted that in many cases, Trump did not work with the Justice Department’s Amnesty Office, but took action on his own, based on requests from lobbyists and his top aides
