Trump pardons ex-49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr.

In the presence of several NFL stars, including legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice, President Donald Trump announced he pardoned ex-San Francisco 49ers team owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. Tuesday.

The pardon came as a surprise; on Tuesday morning, White House reporters were told “an announcement” was coming momentarily. It was soon announced that the president had signed an executive order to grant clemency to DeBartolo for his role in Louisiana governor Edwin Edwards’ bribery scandal in the late ’90s.
