Trump was impeached by the House last week on charges of inciting the storming of the US Capitol on January 6 by pro-Trump protesters. His case is to face a Senate trial. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said so far Trump does not plan to pardon himself and also does not plan to issue preemptive pardons for members of his family.
Trump, who has already issued two waves of pardons in the past month, met advisers on Sunday to finalise a list of more than 100 pardons and commutations, the source said. CNN reported that Dr Salomon Melgen, an eye doctorwho is in prison for healthcare fraud, is expected to be on the clemency list.
