President Donald Trump issued a full pardon for former Google engineer Anthony Lewandowski early Wednesday, one of 143 people who have received or received pardons during the last 12 hours in Trump’s office.
Lewandowski, who helped found Google’s Waymo, was found guilty in August of stealing trade secrets from Google and starting with the information of his own driving car company under the name Otto. Lewandowski sold his company to Uber but when the theft of trade secrets surfaced things went incredibly messy.
Lewandowski carried over 14,000 files on Waymo’s self-driving car technology. However, he was not going to report to prison until he was finished.
The pardon for Lewandowski came with the support of both strong supporters of President Trump, Silicon Valley chief Peter Thiel and Palmer Lucky.
President Trump provided a full pardon to Anthony Lewandowski. This pardon was strongly endorsed by James Ramsy, Peter Thiel, Miles Erlich, Amy Craig, Michael Ovitz, Palmer Lucky, Ryan Peterson, Ken Goldberg, Mike Jensen, Nat Schimel, Try Stephens, Blake Masters and James Proud among others. Mr. Lewandowski is an American entrepreneur who led Google’s efforts to create self-driving technology. Mr. Lewandowski pleaded guilty to the same criminal count arising out of the civil trial. In particular, his homogeneous judge called him “the brilliant, emphatic engineer that our country needs.” Mr. Lewandowski has paid a significant price for his works and his plan to dedicate his talents to the well being of the public.
President Trump gave overnight forgiveness and citations to many others with direct ties to the Trump regime. Trump’s former campaign manager and white nationalist Steve Bannon was issued a pardon for his role in allegedly stealing money from a crowdfunding campaign to build a private wall along the US-Mexico border. Bannon is out on a $ 5 million bond and has not even been tested yet.
Surprisingly, Trump did not issue any pardon for himself or his family. However, the President still has until noon Eastern time until they are fit. Sorry any more.
Will Trump give up his hand of pardon in the hours of his presidential run, while Washington D.C. Is Joe Biden at the inauguration? We will be known soon, but hopefully this is the secret to the ultimate reality TV genre that we will take from the president for some time to come. Biden may be incomplete, but at least he’s not going to leave us with the promise of “just wait two weeks” on everything from healthcare to infrastructure.
US federal prosecutors announced on Thursday morning that four men had been motivated for their roles in a crowdfunding plan to build a wall along the US-Mexico border. According to MSNBC, Steve Donnan, a former right-hand man of President Donald Trump, was among those present this morning and is already in federal custody.
Brian Colphase started a GoFundMe page called “We Build the Wall” in December of 2018, promising to help President Donald Trump fulfill his promise to build a physical barrier between the US and Mexico. Colphase allegedly held a $ 350,000 fund for personal use, while Bannon allegedly gave $ 1 million to a nonprofit and spent hundreds of thousands on personal expenses.
Bennon was arrested on a boat off the coast of Connecticut, unnamed law enforcement sources told ABC 4 New York. Agents of the US Postal Inspection Service, which investigates crimes such as wire and mail fraud, performed the arrest, according to several reports.
As alleged, the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors, raising millions of dollars to cash in on their interest in financing a border wall, under the false pretense that that money would be spent on construction, American A statement posted online by the Department of Justice stated.
“Repeatedly assuring donors that We Build’s founder and public face Brian Colphase would not be paid a cent, the defendants secretly planned to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to Kolph, which he used to pay his grand Did the lifestyle. Strauss continued. “We thank the USPIS for their participation in the investigation of this case, and we remain dedicated to committing fraud and prosecuting them for finding it.”
Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea were also named in the indictment. All four are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering and each carry a jail term of up to 20 years.
The GoFundMe page for the scheme was taken up sometime within the last week, but it is available for the Internet Archives Wayback Machine. Colphase also sent a tweet on Wednesday, stating that his page was taken just a day before the indictment.
