    WASHINGTON, Jan 19 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to grant clemency to former White House aide Steve Bannon as part of a wave of pardons and commutations he will issue during his final hours in office, according to a source familiar with the discussions.

    Bannon was charged last year with swindling Trump supporters over an effort to raise private funds to build the president's wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. (Reporting by Steve Holland Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
