“President Trump gave a full pardon to a longtime friend who last year wrote a glowing book about Trump’s successes,” the Washington Post reports.

“Conrad Black was convicted in 2007 on fraud charges, including alleged embezzlement, and obstruction of justice. He served more than three years in prison and was deported to his native Canada after he was released in 2012. He was barred from returning to the United States for 30 years.”

1. Sounds like Trump's kinda guy.

If he wasn't Canadian he'd probably be in line for a Cabinet-level appointment.

2. He will probably be busy writing a book to be released in a year on Trump's

Presidency. Glowing of course. He already wrote a book about FDR. My grandfather was warned back in the day never to do business with Black when Black was young and my grandfather never did.


.....Yup. Black is a historian and will write a Trump biography to shore up Trump support leading into 2020. Black would need access to the WH and the USA to do it. Just spitballing.
