WASHINGTON – 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.
In a statement from the White House on Wednesday , (rumoured to have been written by Conrad Moffat Black, Baron Black of Crossharbour, KCSG) said Black has made tremendous contributions to business, as well as to political and historical thought and Lord Black’s case has attracted broad support from many high-profile individuals who have vigorously vouched for his exceptional character. So there!
A bunch of whiners complained about different strokes for different folks or something like that.The rich will always be with us!
