President Trump issued 15 pardons last night, but contrary to expectations made in recent news reports, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange did not get one. The inquiry into Russian election interference seems to be a priority for the president, given that he issued pardons to Geroge Papadopoulos and Alex van der Zwaan, the two individuals who admitted lying to the special counsel Robert Mueller. Zawaan, 36 is the son-in-law of Russian billionaire German Khan.

In justifying Trump's decision to issue this specific pardon, the White House said that the inquiry found “no collusion” between the Trump campaign and Moscow. “Today’s pardon helps correct the wrong that Mueller’s team inflicted on so many people,” the White House said.
