President Trump Has Granted Clemency Less Than Every President In Modern History Bar One; Pardons George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Jared Kushner’s Dad, and related stories

President Trump Has Granted Clemency Less Than Every President In Modern History Bar One:
Well this is going to break the mainstream media narrative...
As Trump has pardoned some relatively high profile individuals such as Roger Stone, General Mike Flynn, and Paul Manafort, the liberalati has got its gender-neutral panties in a bundle over these "digusting", "corrupt", "cronyism" actions.
It turns out however that, even including the recent surge, PewResearch reports that Trump has used his clemency power less often than any president in modern history (apart from Bush Senior), according to data from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Trump pardons Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Jared Kushner’s dad:
President Trump continued his string of pardons Wednesday night, bringing the two-day total to 41 and wiping felonies from the records of Paul Manafort and Roger Stone, two political advisors who were convicted in the Russia investigation.
Manafort and Stone had resisted cooperating with prosecutors. Manafort, who served as Trump’s campaign chairman four years ago, was convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion, and he also pleaded guilty to illegally lobbying for Ukraine. Although he was sentenced to more than seven years in prison, the veteran Republican operative has been under home confinement because of concerns about COVID-19.
He responded to news of his pardon by thanking and flattering the president on Twitter.
“Mr. President, my family & I humbly thank you for the Presidential Pardon you bestowed on me,” Manafort wrote. “Words cannot fully convey how grateful we are.” --->READ MORE HERE
