Who did Barack Obama ask?

The pardon decision of President Donald Trump, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, has brought presidential graces back into the spotlight, and more apologies are expected during the lame duck period.

Flynn is a matter of great significance as he admitted to lying to the FBI and agreed to cooperate with Special Adviser Robert Mueller, but later tried to drop his guilty charge.

Trump’s predecessor, former President Barack Obama, never pardoned anyone who had as much publicity as Ms. Flyne, but during her tenure, issued 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations, according to Pew Research.
