He does have particular interest to pardon people who were blamed for influencing investigations, for frauds, for trying to buy seats in congress but also arson is one of things for which he pardons people :D

President pardon is rarely tool which is there for justice and Trump is not the only one with weird taste in criminals. In my country they even pardon for murders and other hard crimes.

Pfft! Media Barons who want to influence politics.:rolleyes:

 I could not be happier that Rupert Murdoch was ousted by the Australian Government when they would not let him have the majority share in our media. If I were a suspicious b******, and I am, this pardon would be making me think......hmmmmm.

Like many corruptions that the Dem-o-Repubs allow themselves, this presidential perk has to be reigned in.
