Politico reports that President Trump’s attorneys and advisers have suggested against pardoning his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort but aides “expect the president to do it anyway.”

“The president’s characterization of his former campaign chairman as a victim and ‘brave man’ is being read by aides as a signal that Trump wants to use his unilateral authority to issue pardons to absolve Manafort, according to eight current and former administration officials and outside advisers,” the outlet added.

However, Politico’s sources also said there’s no indication of an immediate pardon by Trump.
