President DonaldTrump granted clemency Tuesday to 11 people, many of whom were high-profile individuals. The move came in the wake of criticism from many in the legal community over the actions of Attorney General Bill Barr, who overruled his own prosecutors to recommend a shorter sentence for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and former U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz spoke about the implications with Jim Braude Wednesday on Greater Boston.
