President Trump granted clemency to 20 people on Tuesday ahead of the Christmas holiday.

Among the high-profile pardons are former Rep. Duncan Hunter, who pleaded guilty to misusing campaign funds, and George Papadopoulos, a former campaign adviser who was charged in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

The move comes as activists have lobbied Trump to use his executive powers to help prisoners who are serving what they view as unduly long sentences.
