Trump pardons two linked to Russia probe
US President Donald Trump granted pardons Tuesday to two people linked to a probe into alleged collusion between his campaign and Russia along with a list of others as time ticks away on his remaining weeks in office.
They add to pardons already issued to political allies of Trump, due to leave office on January 20.
The White House said in a statement that Trump had granted full pardons to 15 people.
A full pardon was given to George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser who admitted lying to federal investigators about his contacts with Russians. Another full pardon was granted to Alex van der Zwaan, a lawyer who was also convicted in connection with Mueller's probe.
