President Donald Trump has had a busy day granting last minute pardons with the outgoing-President granting one additional pardon in the final hours of his presidency.
"Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a full pardon to Albert J Pirro Jr," deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement to the White House press pool, CNN reported.
Pirro is the ex-husband of Trump ally and Fox News personality Judge Jeanine Pirro. He was convicted in conspiracy and tax evasion case after he improperly deducted $1.2 million of his personal expenses in business write-offs.
President Trump earlier pardoned his former political strategist Steve Bannon, one of the key architects of his 2016 electoral victory, as he issued a wave of pardons using the final hours of his presidency to grant clemency to 143 people.
