President Trump issues 15 pardons, including former New York Rep. Chris Collins

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Trump issues 15 pardons, including former Reps. Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins.

President Donald Trump has pardoned 15 people, including Republican allies, a 2016 campaign official ensnared in the Russia probe and former government contractors convicted in a 2007 massacre in Baghdad.

The pardons announced Tuesday night include former Republican Reps. Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of New York.

Trump also announced a pardon for George Papadopoulos, his 2016 campaign adviser whose conversation unwittingly helped trigger the Russia investigation that shadowed Trump's presidency for nearly two years.
