Trump is expected to grant more pardons in the coming weeks. On Tuesday, the U.N. special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, urged Trump to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Meanwhile, Trump is reportedly considering granting legal immunity to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is facing a federal lawsuit over a plot to assassinate a former top Saudi intelligence officer who now lives in Canada. Such a move may provide the legal basis to protect bin Salman over the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.
