(AP) — President Donald Trump pardoned more than two dozen people, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Charles Kushner, the father of his son-in-law. It’s the latest wave of clemency by Trump that benefits longtime associates and supporters. The actions announced Wednesday night bring to nearly 50 the number of people whom the president has granted clemency in the last week. Included are multiple people convicted in the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia, plus some of the president’s legally troubled allies from Congress.
