NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Trump will reportedly issued about 100 pardons and commutations on Tuesday -- his last full day in the Oval Office -- to an eclectic bunch of individuals that is expected to include rapper Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne pleaded guilty last month to illegally possessing a gun, which wasn’t allowed due to a prior felony conviction. The New York Post reported he is likely to be pardoned, based in part, on supporting Trump's bid for re-election.
"Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership," Lil Wayne tweeted in October. "He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done."
Also on the rap front, Snoop Dogg is reportedly working with activists close to the White House in an attempt to convince President Trump to commute the sentence of Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry-O” Harris," according to The Daily Beast. Harris, who is nearly 60, has spent nearly 30 years in prison for attempted murder and cocaine trafficking.
The White House held a meeting Sunday to finalize the list, two sources told CNN.
Pardon-seekers and those lobbying on their behalf have paid Trump's allies tens of thousands of dollars to sway the president, The New York Times reported on Sunday.
