Won't become lobbyists for the agencies they served in*, in addition to restrictions on taking gifts from lobbyists and registering as foreign agents.

More news: Trump revokes an executive order that *he signed* 8 days into his presidency requiring appointees to sign a pledge that they won't become lobbyists within 5 years of leaving the administration.

Tucked in just after the pardons:

NEW: @WhiteHouse announces pardons for Steve Bannon, Elliot Broidy, Lil Wayne, Kodak Black and Kwame Kilpatrick

Interestingly, while most of the pardon blurbs mention prominent endorsers, Bannon's doesn't feature any.

Not on the pardon list: Trump or his family members, Joe Exotic, Rudy Giuliani, House Republicans

Ethics watchdog @CREWcrew on the pardons: "Donald Trump found one more way to fail to live up to the ethical standard of Richard Nixon."

A quick recap on Bannon since 2017 - trashed the president's son in the Michael Wolff book, was pushed out after a months-long battle w Kushner, Trump disparaged him, then he started backing Trump vociferously and publicly, got indicted on fraud charges, pardoned in 11th hour.

Per @MaggieNYT: the White House had "planned to release the list of those granted clemency earlier on Tuesday" but hit a snag with Bannon.

Last day of the Trump presidency

Quoted @yashar

Trump is expected to grant clemency to former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who is set to serve in prison until 2037 after being convicted on 24 counts.

Kilpatrick was an example Trump supporters would often bring up with me to illustrate why they thought Dems were so corrupt.

Trump:

Nov. 5: "Detroit and Philadelphia... two of the most corrupt political places anywhere in our country."

Dec. 2: "Detroit is corrupt. I have a lot of friends in Detroit, they know it."

Dec. 22: "corrupt Democratic-run cities... such as Milwaukee, Detroit."

Breaking: Trump has granted clemency to rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black and former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (reporting by @steveholland1)

Between Rod Blagojevich, Charles Kushner, Sheldon Silver and Kwame Kilpatrick, Trump sure is pardoning a lot of prominent Democrats

Pretty comprehensive summation of the Trump presidency via @CNN: "Throughout the day, Trump had continued to contemplate pardons that aides believed were settled, including for his former strategist."

There are many moments from the Trump presidency... but a post on Twitter just reminded me of one of my favorites: When he went to the national prayer breakfast & mocked Arnold Schwarzenegger's ratings & asked the crowd to "please pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings."
