NBC’s John Yang reported that NBC has been told not to expect any more pardons or commutations from President Bush before president-elect Obama takes office.
We have been told to expect one final wave or one final list, clemency list, from the president which we’ve now gotten. We were also told it would not come on inauguration day. They would not do it in the last-minute fashion that president Clinton did. We’re told that this is it. These are the only two names on the list today. We’re told to expect nothing more over the next 24 hours,” said Yang.
