ThoseUSPresidentialPardons Photo A U.S. president gave Richard Nixon a full and unconditional pardon for any crimes he may have committed against the United States while he was president. Another president pardoned Armand Hammer after he was convicted of illegal contributions to Nixon's campaign. Yet another president issued a pardon to his half-brother after he served time in prison for cocaine distribution.

According to the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 2 gives the President "power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment." The Supreme Court has interpreted this to mean that United States presidents have the power to grant full pardons, conditional pardons, commutations of sentence, conditional commutations of sentence, remissions of fines and forfeitures, and amnesties.

This quiz is about some of the more notable ones during presidential terms.
