去年八月時因竊取商業機密被法官判處 18 個月刑期的前 Google 高管、Waymo 及 Uber 工程師 Anthony Levandowski,在美國前總統川普的任期最後一天獲得了特赦。同樣在最後時刻得到赦免、減刑的還包括曾跟川普關係密切的 Steve Bannon、Elliott Broidy 等政客,以及 Lil Wayne、Kodak Black 等演藝人士。

從白宮發佈的公告中可以看到,諸如 Peter Thiel、Palmer Luckey 等知名科技人都對赦免 Levandowski 表示了支持。聲明中還提到 Levandowski「已經為他的行為付出了巨大的代價」,他未來將「致力於推進公益事業」。值得一提的是,雖然法庭去年已經給出了 Levandowski 案的裁決,但因為身體和疫情原因,此前他並未開始真正服刑。
