President Trump issued 73 pardons and 70 sentence commutations early Wednesday as he prepared to leave office.
Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was serving a nearly 30-year sentence on corruption charges, was among the 70 who had their sentences commuted just hours before President-elect Joe Biden takes the oath of office.
With less than hour left of his presidency, Trump also granted a pardon to Albert J. Pirro, Jr., an attorney and ex-husband of Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro. He was convicted of conspiracy and tax evasion in 2000.
Trump was not expected to attempt to issue himself or family members a preemptive pardon, sources told Fox News.
