Trump pardons 26, including Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Charles Kushner

President Trump continued his pre-Christmas forgiveness blitz on Wednesday, pardoning his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, his longtime associate Roger Stone, and Charles Kushner, the father of his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Both Manafort, 71, and Stone, 68, — whose sentence Trump had already commuted in July — were convicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

In all, Trump granted full pardons to 26 people on Wednesday night and commuted part or all of the sentences of three others, the White House said.

His pardon spree began Tuesday night, when he granted clemency to 20 convicted felons.
