Trump Pardons Author of Flattering Biography of the President
Conrad Black, who published 'Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other' last year, was the former owner of the Chicago Sun-Times and was convicted of fraud in 2007 and spent three and a half years in prison.
President Donald Trump has granted a full pardon to Conrad Black, a former newspaper publisher who has written a flattering political biography of Trump.
Black's media empire once included the Chicago Sun-Times and The Daily Telegraph of London. He was convicted of fraud in 2007 and spent three and a half years in prison.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Black "has made tremendous contributions to business, and to political and historical thought."
In 2018, he published Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other.
Trump has also pardoned Patrick Nolan, a former Republican leader of the California State Assembly. Nolan has been a vocal advocate for criminal justice reform since he spent more than two years in federal prison during the 1990s.
