Trump Pardons Ex-Con Fraudster Who Wrote Fawning Pro-Trump Book, Called Charlottesville A “False Flag”

Reuters reports:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed a full pardon for former media mogul Conrad Black, who was convicted in 2007 of fraud and obstruction of justice and spent 3-1/2 years in prison, the White House said.

Black, 74, a Canadian-born British citizen, once ran an international newspaper empire that included the Chicago Sun-Times, Britain’s Daily Telegraph and the Jerusalem Post. He also wrote a book about the president, called “Donald Trump: A President Like No Other” that was published in 2018.

He was found guilty in the United States in 2007 of scheming to siphon off millions of dollars from the sale of newspapers owned by Hollinger Inc, where he was chief executive and chairman. He was released from a Florida prison in May 2012 and deported from the United States.
