Many of those who received clemency Tuesday had the backing of an ally of the president, such as former adviser Kellyanne Conway, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich or newly elected Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), who were among those cited in the White House statement as supporters of various pardons.

I’m pretty sure those mentioned didn’t take any direct bribes, but possibly campaign donations.
