WASHINGTON — The White House says President Donald Trump has pardoned Al Pirro, the ex-husband of Fox News Channel host and Trump ally Jeanine Pirro.
The pardon for Al Pirro is in addition to the 143 pardons and sentence commutations that Trump announced earlier Wednesday. Pirro’s pardon was announced just after Trump landed in Florida after leaving the White House and before Joe Biden was inaugurated as the nation’s 46th president — literally minutes before the end of his term.
Jeanine Pirro hosts Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” and has been a vociferous backer of Trump, frequently having Trump’s children and relations on the show.
