The following is a partial list of people pardoned by Bill Clinton.[1] As President, Bill Clinton used his power under the U.S. Constitution to grant pardons and clemency to 456 people, thus commuting the sentences of those already convicted of a crime, and obviating a trial for those not yet convicted.[2] On January 20, 2001, he pardoned 140 people in the final hours of his presidency.[3]
