Listen to the news
Those whom Trump pardoned on Wednesday included Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. Trump has also pardoned his son-in-law Jared Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner. A statement from the White House said, “President Donald Trump has pardoned Paul Manafart today. Paul was sentenced after an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference.
Please note that Paul Manafart has already been sentenced to two years in prison. The statement added that President Trump has also unconditionally pardoned Roger Stone. Please say Stone is 68 years old and has many health problems.
Trump has acted as a guru by forgiving his father-in-law. The White House said in a statement that Charles Kushner had been working for important charities since completing his sentence in 2006. These acts of reform and charity go far beyond his allegations.
Let us state that Kushner was sentenced to two years in prison on charges of fabricating compensation, intimidating witnesses and making false statements before the FEC. In addition, Donald Trump pardoned former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
