Trump to pardon former NY assembly speaker - report

The number of pardons to be issued by United States President Donald Trump on his last day in office include former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, The New York Times reported.

The president will allegedly also give clemency to rapper Lil Wayne, who last month pleaded guilty to a gun charge.

It was reported earlier, that Trump was told by his advisors not to pardon himself or anyone involved in storming the Capitol building earlier in January, as it would serve as an admission of guilt.
