We wait for the pen to hit the paper, we think we're very, very close.

– Eric Love, an attorney for Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka Joe Exotic, the star of Netflix 'Tiger King', comments on the likelihood that his client will be pardoned by President Donald Trump in the final days of his tenure. "We heard about the Tiger King," said an anonymous White House source. Maldanado-Passage is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence after being convicted of two murders and animal abuse. He believes that if he is not pardoned, he will die in prison before his release date in 2037.
