President Trump is preparing to issue around 100 pardons and commutations on his final full day in office Tuesday, according to three people familiar with the matter, a major batch of clemency actions that includes white-collar criminals, high-profile rappers, and others.
Actress Pamela Anderson pleaded with President Donald Trump to “do the right thing” and issue a pardon to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
The Baywatch star appealed to the president to use his final days in the White House to pardon Assange who is being held in a London jail. Anderson told Tucker Carlson Tonight Monday that this is Trump’s “time to shine” on the issue of freedom of speech.
“The entire world wants, or most want him to pardon Julian Assange,” Anderson told host Tucker Carlson. “This is his time to shine and really make an impression on the world. If this goes to trial, that’s the end of the First Amendment.”
