WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, government watchdog Accountable.US released the following statement concerning the president’s spree of pardons:

“These lame duck pardons are just the latest example of Trump’s longstanding pattern of promoting cronyism and corruption in his administration at all costs,” said Accountable.US President Kyle Herrig. “As millions of Americans are suffering and afraid of losing their homes and livelihoods, all Trump has time for is handing out political favors to his friends and allies. There’s little more we can expect from a president who has held ethics in low regard and ignored the struggles of everyday Americans for his entire four-year term.”
