Trump pardons former Rep. Duncan Hunter and four Iraq war vets convicted in Blackwater shooting | Military Times

Former Rep. Duncan Hunter has been pardoned after misusing funds from Wounded Warriors and using it for his own personnel use, such as reporting golf equipment purchases as donations. Four veterans who served in Iraq have also been pardoned for their involvement in the Blackwater shooting. The former Blackwater security personnel had gone to prison for the controversial 2007 attack in Baghdad that left 14 people dead. This comes in the last month of President Trump’s presidency and is expected to cause backlash.
