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.

The hashtag #FreeSteveDaines has flooded social media after the Twitter account of United States Senator Steve Daines, a Republican from Montana, was suspended. The decision by Twitter came Monday night, reportedly due to the profile photo which shows him with his wife next to a hunted Montana antelope.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Daines showed no fear against the platform’s preposterous policy by simply saying, “My wife is a great shot. What can I say?”

Rachel Dumke, press secretary for Daines, said in a statement to Fox News Digital “The Senator thinks it’s preposterous that a picture of him and his wife hunting — an activity that is engrained in the Montana way of life — would be against Twitter rules. Our team has reached out to Twitter, and we’ll be working to get this resolved.”

Supporters from the conservative as well as hunting communities have come to Daines’ defense. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas tweeted: “Ridiculous. My friend @SteveDaines is in @Twitter jail for posting this pic w/ his wife Cindy. If you don’t like hunting, fine, don’t go. But don’t censor others who disagree. And I’m pretty sure this is a formal job responsibility for a senator from Montana!”

Republican Representative from Montana, Ryan Zinke complimented the Senator’s wife, writing, “Great shot, Cindy!”
