President Donald Trump is expected to issue around 100 pardons and commutations during his last week in office.

According to Fox News, the pardons will most likely be announced Tuesday, but there is a slight chance the White House will make them official Wednesday morning.

Trump has been announcing a number of pardons and commutations throughout his tenure in office. The final list of pardons was finalized on Sunday at the White House with his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The list reportedly includes white collar criminals, high-profile rappers and others. Dwayne Carter, known as Lil Wayne, is expected to be on the list, while former Trump advisor Steve Bannon is described as being “TBD,” Fox News has reported.

Lil Wayne pleaded guilty in 2020 in federal district court to illegally possessing a loaded, gold-plated .45-caliber handgun while traveling to Florida on a private jet in 2019. Small amounts of cocaine, ecstasy and oxycodone were also found in his bag, according to the U.S. attorney.

Also, Bannon was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering after being arrested for defrauding donors to the online fundraising campaign known as “We Build the Wall” that raised $25 million.

Trump can issue pardons up until noon on Inauguration Day.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
