WASHINGTON — 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 says 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.″
