President Trump announced on Thursday that he would be considering granting pardons to individuals negatively affected by the Mueller investigation.
Trump didn’t mention particular names but individuals who may be pardoned by such a move include General Michael Flynn, former campaign aide George Papadopoulos, and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
As The Hill reports:
President Trump on Thursday said he would consider granting pardons for individuals implicated in former special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation.
“I’ve looked at a lot of different people. They’ve been treated extremely unfairly, and I think I probably would, yes,” Trump told Sean Hannity on Fox News…
Trump commuted the sentence of associate Roger Stone earlier this month before he was due to report to prison, but he did not grant a full pardon.
The president spoke at length on Hannity’s show about the fallout of Mueller’s investigation amid speculation about when U.S. Attorney John Durham‘s findings on the origins of that probe will be released. Attorney General William Barr previously said to expect developments in the probe this summer.
