US President Donald Trump Pardons Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, And Charles Kushner

US President Donald Trump has pardoned former campaign manager Paul Manafort, ex-adviser Roger Stone, and the father of Mr. Trump’s son-in-law.  Even earlier, US President Trump commuted the prison sentence of Stone, who was convicted of lying to Congress.

Mr. Trump’s pardon for Manafort spared his former campaign chairman from serving most of his seven-and-a-half-year prison term for financial fraud and conspiring to obstruct the investigation into himself.

Manafort tweeted in his official Twitter account-  “Mr. President, my family & I humbly thank you for the Presidential Pardon you bestowed on me. Words cannot fully convey how grateful we are.”
