On Tuesday evening Trump issued 15 pardons, including two men who were convicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, four former Blackwater guards involved in the killings of 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007 and two former Republican congressmen who committed financial-related crimes.

Among the pardons are former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos, former US congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins and lawyer Alex van der Zwaan.
