Allies of incumbent US President Donald Trump demanded a reward for aiding in obtaining a presidential pardon for convicted criminals. The newspaper The New York Times writes about this, referring to the documents that came to its disposal and based on conversations with informed persons.

As noted, former Utah County Attorney Brett Tolman, close to the White House, resorted to his position and took a reward for trying to get pardons for three criminals. Also, the former legal adviser to the head of state John Dowd, according to the publication, received “tens of thousands of dollars”, guaranteeing pardons for several convicts, which he promised to achieve through his close ties with Trump.

Earlier, CNN claimed that Trump had discussed with his aides the possibility of a preventive pardon for his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, who are his advisers, as well as several other people.
