They say as many as 100 people will be granted clemency.
As of now, the president is not expected to pardon himself.
First lady Melania Trump is also preparing to leave the White House.
Monday she released a farewell video saying, “In all circumstances, I ask every American to be an ambassador of Be Best. To focus on what unites us, to raise above what divides us. To always chose love over hatred, peace over violence and others before yourself.”
