President Trump Pardons Author of Flattering Biography

President Trump on Wednesday granted full pardon to former media mogul Conrad Black who wrote a book on Trump

Not only that Black would receive a full pardon from criminal charges, as he did on Wednesday, but that the pardon would be communicated by a White House led by a former business associate, real estate tycoon Donald Trump - a bit player in the saga of Black's fall from atop an global media empire spanning three continents.

President Donald Trump has pardoned a media mogul who just so happened to author a book gushing about the Trump presidency. At the fractious meeting, Trump told the assembled investors: "I fully support the company and its management, and in particular I have great respect for Conrad Black". Hollinger was the publisher of a number of papers throughout the world, including The Daily Telegraph, Chicago Sun-Times and The Jerusalem Post, as well as hundreds of smaller community newspapers, according to Deadline. The White House said Black spent three-and-a-half years in prison.

"He could not have been more gracious and quickly got to his point: he was granting me a full pardon that would "Expunge the bad wrap you got".

Dean Smith's side could not capitalise on that however, and as chances came and went for the Villans in extra time, the inevitable penalty shootout came about.


"My long ordeal with the USA justice system 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", he wrote.

In response to the December 2015 tweet, Lord Black wrote: "Many thanks, Donald and all good wishes in helping to clean up the American government".

A former member of the British House of Lords, he was sentenced to more than six years in prison after his 2007 conviction in Chicago, but was released on bail two years later to pursue an appeal that was partially successful.

Trump also pardoned Patrick Nolan, a former Republican leader of the California State Assembly.

In its announcement of clemency for Black, the White House cited an "impressive list" of people who had vouched for his character, including former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, singer Elton John, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh and the late William F. Buckley Jr., the creator of The National Review.

It goes on to describe how Nolan ended up advocating for criminal justice reform, specifically the "Prison Rape Elimination Act", the "Second Chance Act", the "Fair Sentencing Act", and the "FIRST Step Act".
