U.S. President trump revealed on the 17th local time that he would pardon a “very, very important” person on the 18th, but declined to provide more details. As soon as trump said this, it immediately triggered the reverie of many foreign media, including American media. According to Fox News on the 18th, trump returned to Washington on the 17th after finishing his campaign in Wisconsin. On the way back, he revealed the news to the accompanying media reporters. According to the report, trump would not disclose who the “person to be pardoned” is, and declined to provide more details, but he also said the pardoned people would not be Edward Snowden, an employee of the former US defense contractor, or Michael Flynn, a former US national security adviser. According to a previous report in the New York Post, trump hinted at a news conference on the 15th that he might pardon Snowden. “A lot of people think the attitude towards Snowden should be different from what it is now, while others think he has done a bad thing,” he said. I’ll think about it. ” According to reports, in 2013, Snowden exposed the U.S. eavesdropping programs around the world. Wanted by the U.S. government, Snowden fled to Russia to seek political asylum, where he has lived for seven years. < p > < p > < p > the New York Post once believed that if trump forgives Snowden, it would be another “major change” – before trump took office in the White House, he tweeted at least 45 times to criticize Snowden, calling him a “traitor” and “a disgrace”. Another trump mentioned Flynn as the first national security adviser of the trump administration. Fox News said that in the 2017 “Russia door” investigation, Flynn twice lied to FBI agents about the conversation with Sergey Kislyak, then Russian ambassador to the United States. However, under the pressure of trump to popularize his allies, the US Department of Justice announced on May 7 this year to withdraw the lawsuit against Flynn on the grounds of “suspected misconduct of investigators” and “lack of evidence”. Fox News said on the 17th that the president of the United States usually exercises such a power at the end of his term of office, but trump has been using it or announcing commutation since he took office. According to reports, trump pardoned Bernard Kerik, a former New York City police chief, who was sentenced to three years in prison for tax fraud and lying to the White House during an interview with Homeland Security Secretary under the Bush administration. In addition, trump recently reduced the sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, according to reports.

Reuters reported on the 18th that trump also exempted Roger stone, his former campaign adviser and good friend, last month. This incident has attracted a lot of criticism from Muller, the special prosecutor of “tongrussia gate”.
