He’s a tax evader and a flashy New York businessman who cheated on his wife, and Donald Trump just gave him a last minute pardon. Trump on Wednesday moring issued a full pardon to Al Pirro Jr., the ex-husband of one of Trump’s most slavishly loyal supporters in the media, Jeanine Pirro, the host of Fox News “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” The pardon, announced less than 45 minutes before Joe BIden was sworn in as president, appeared to be the last gasp of executive clemency for Trump, who in the past two months eagerly rewarded friends, sychophants and run of the mill people who fell afoul of the law. Al Pirro did not immediately respond to a request for comment left at his office. Less than 12 hours before the Al Pirro pardon was announced, the White house announced Trump had pardoned 73 other people, and commuted the criminal sentences of 70 individuals.
The pardon recipients included a former chief of Trump’s 2016 campaign, Steve Bannon, who was charged last year with defrauding Trump supporters who wanted to fund private effort to build a border wall with Mexico, and Republican fundraiser Elliot Broidy, who pleaded guilty to acting as an unregistered lobbyist for foreign interests who were trying to influence the Trump administration. “Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Albert J. Pirro, Jr., Trump’s spokesman Judd Deere said in a one line statement, which unlike other actions of exective clemency failed to mention Pirro’s crimes, or offer some kind of rationalization for why he deserves a pardon.
