President Donald Trump has reportedly pardoned Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry-O” Harris, Vladtv.com reported.
Harris is among 100 pardons and commutations set to be announced by the Trump administration before the president leaves office at 12:01 p.m. on January 20.
Harris, who was convicted in 1988 of attempted murder and narcotics distribution, has served 32 years in state and federal time for attempted murder and for his role in operating an 11-state drug trafficking ring. He will be set free immediately.
Rapper Snoop Dogg, who openly criticized Trump during his 4 years in office, worked quietly with prison reform advocates in the White House to release his friend.
“The president knows about it. I’ve spoken with Ivanka [Trump] and I’ve spoken with Jared [Kushner], and I’ve been told that President Trump is aware of the case and has been reviewing it,” said Alice Johnson, whose life sentence for a drug conviction was commuted by Trump.
“Snoop brought this case to me, and I brought Alice Johnson on board to help it with me, and she brought it to the West Wing,” said activist Weldon Angelos. “In the past, the president has given her the ability to select cases. And she doesn’t get [clemency for] all of them. But with Mr. Harris, she is not taking no for an answer.”
