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.
