The pardon nearly immediately came under fire from the left.
Kevin Ring, president of Families Against Mandatory Minimums, which worked with the Justice Department during the Obama administration to help identify candidates for clemency, said that many are torn over Trump's decision-making process, which appears to be more haphazard than in the past.
