President Donald Trump has used the final days of his first term as President to issue pardons and commutations. Some have gone to allies, some have gone to big names, and some to the obscure.
More pardons are sure to come and many await in anticipation for the pardons of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden by President Trump.
In the following few pages, we will introduce you to the big names who have been pardoned. The political allies who have been pardoned. And to the other everyday Americans who deserve a second chance.

Former Representative Duncan Hunter was one of them:
Duncan Hunter – At the request of many Members of Congress, President Trump granted a full pardon to Duncan Hunter. His pardon is also supported by former Commissioner of the Federal Election Commission Bradley Smith.
Mr. Hunter has dedicated much of his adult life to public service. Mr. Hunter represented California’s 50th Congressional District from 2013 to 2020. Prior to his time in Congress, Mr. Hunter was an officer in the United States Marine Corps. Inspired to enlist after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Mr. Hunter saw combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
In 2019, Mr. Hunter pled guilty to one count of misusing campaign funds, an offense that could have been handled as a civil case via the Federal Election Commission, according to former FEC Commissioner Bradley Smith. He was sentenced to 11 months’ imprisonment set to begin in January 2021.

Our President still doing ‘good things’ in spite of adversity. Guess that’s a good lesson for us all.
Love to Asage & Snowden get pardons BIG Time
I could agree with pardoning Julian Assange but not Edward Snowden.
And Christ pardons millions who repent! Praise God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit Amen!
