The Justice Department sent President Obama more than 16,000 clemency petitions filed by Federal inmates with their recommendations. The President is reportedly set to grant hundreds more commutations to nonviolent drug offenders during his final days in office. These are in addition to 1,176 prisoners pardoned as part of his clemency initiative to correct for severe mandatory minimum sentencing created from "war on drugs" laws passed in the 80's and 90's. Current Justice Department officials fear Trump administration will dismantle Obama's clemency program.
