President pardons another American Hero. Our President has pardoned a third protector of our border. The agent did a good job and was rewarded with two years in prison.
“President Trump granted a full pardon to Gary Brugman,” the White House said in a written statement Wednesday night. “His clemency is supported by numerous elected officials, including Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, Senators Ted Cruz, and John Cornyn, Representative Louie Gohmert, Representative Ted Poe, Representative Steve King, Representative Paul Gosar, Representative Walter Jones, Representative Brian Babin, and Representative John Culberson.”
Like Brugman, Trump also pardoned Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, two former Border Patrol agents who were convicted of assault. Ramos’ and Compean’s sentences had been commuted by then-President George W. Bush. Trump granted them a full pardon.
