Trump Gives Conrad Black Full Pardon

The former Canadian media mogul had spent about 42 months in prison in the United States.

Conrad Black has received a full pardon from US President Donald Trump.

Black had been convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice in the United States, and spent about 42 months in prison.

However, nearly all of the charges faced by Black were overturned by a higher court, and many feel he was unfairly prosecuted.

The White House praised Black for his commitment to helping others – including his help tutoring people in prison – his assistance to charity, and his entrepreneurial success.

Black is respected by many in Canada, particularly for his founding of the National Post and his efforts to broaden the political discussion and debate in Canada.

That is more good news. Now, maybe Conrad Black can rethink why he supported the destructive political monstrosity that is our current pm.

Outstanding !

So they made his life as miserable as they could do.
Trump rocks !

This complete pardon is so overdue The Chicago prosecution of Conrad Black epitomizes the legendary corruption of the American Justice system particularly in Chicago. In neither Canada nor Great Britain could Black have ever been prosecuted. In both Canada and Great Britain all that Black faced were in truth civil disagreements but never Criminal fraud. The Chicago Prosecutor twisted the allegations into into Criminal offenses that for conviction required false testimony, and suppression of evidence.
