Trump to mull ‘lots of different pardons’ for accused soldiers

Tom Howell Jr. The Washington TimesMay 24, 2019

President Trump said Friday his administration is looking at “a lot of different pardons” amid reports he is considering a Memorial Day reprieve for soldiers accused of war crimes.

“We’re looking at a lot of different pardons for a lot of different people,” Mr. Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for a Japan trip. “Some of these soldiers are people that have fought hard, long we teach them how to be great fighters, and then when they fight, sometimes they get treated really unfairly.

“So we’re going to take a look at it. I haven’t done anything yet,” Mr. Trump said. “I haven’t made any decisions, there’s two or three of them right now. It’s a little bit controversial.”
