One of President Trump's latest acts is to pardon a former Google engineer who was convicted of stealing trade secrets Anthony Levandowski worked for Google's self-driving car division, now called Waymo, before leaving to found Otto, an autonomous truck company acquired by Uber. He was sentenced to 18 month in prison in August, Judge William Alsup describing the incident as the «biggest trade secret crime I have ever seen”

Levandowski downloaded thousands of files to his laptop before quitting Google and engaging in sales talks. Uber finally fired him after Google sued, and Levandowski remains in legal battle with ridesharing company, stating that she should be responsible for 179 million dollars he was ordered to pay to Google. In a separate pursuit, Levandowski has argued that Uber owes him billions of dollars in lost value as a result of the Otto deal

Levandowski never started his sentence, because Alsup allowed it to be delayed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic According to a White House statement, Levandowski's grace was supported by personalities in the tech industry, including controversial billionaire investor Peter Thiel, Founders Fund partner Trae Stephens, le COO de Thiel Capital Blake Masters, Hollywood agent and Palantir advisor Michael Ovitz, and Oculus and Palmer Luckey, founder of Anduril
