Donald Trump pardons disgraced media mogul Conrad Black

Conrad Black has been granted a full pardon by U.S. President Donald Trump

In 2018, Black published Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other. The second grouping has subtitles like How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency, How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind, and The Fight to Save President Trump.

President Donald Trump has issued a full pardon for Conrad Black, a former media mogul who was convicted on counts of wire fraud and obstruction of justice and who also wrote a biography that praised the president past year.

Black grew a newspaper empire from one newspaper in Quebec to what was at one point the third-largest newspaper company in the world, with the Chicago Sun-Times and the London Daily Telegraph among its holdings.

In 2007, Black was convicted of fraud in U.S. District Court in Chicago and spent three and a half years in a Florida prison.

Black said in the article that he had not spoken to Trump since the President had taken office and that when his assistant put a call through from the White House, he first thought it was a prank.

In 2015, Black wrote a National Review essay titled "Trump Is the Good Guy".

He called it a long ordeal that was "never anything but a confluence of unlucky events, the belligerence of several corporate governance charlatans, and grandstanding local and American judges, all fanned by an unusually frenzied worldwide media showing exceptional interest in the case because I was a media owner".

A judge reduced his sentence to three years.

Examples of his work cited by the White House include biographies of Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Richard Nixon.

Nolan is the director of the Center for Criminal Justice Reform at the American Conservative Union Foundation, and, according to his biography page from that group, he pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge after an FBI sting and spent 29 months in federal custody.

"Lord Black's case has attracted broad support from many high-profile individuals who have vigorously vouched for his exceptional character", a White House statement announcing the pardon said.

Past year he issued a pardon to conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted in 2014 of violating campaign finance laws.

Critics have accused Mr Trump of using his powers of pardon to address what he believes are political wrongs.

Mr Black said President Trump had called him to say that he would be granted a full pardon, that his conviction was "unjust" and that he "should never been charged".
