Trump pardons media tycoon, former GOP leader of California State Assembly

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Wednesday signed granted a full pardon to media tycoon Conrad Moffat Black and Patrick Nolan, former Republican leader of the California State Assembly.

Black, a Canadian-born British citizen, served as the chief executive of Hollinger International, which published the Chicago Sun-Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Jerusalem Post. He was convicted in 2007 on three counts of mail fraud and one count of obstruction of justice in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Two of his three fraud convictions were later overturned, leading his sentence to be shortened. He was released from a Florida prison in May 2012 and subsequently deported from the United States.

Black wrote a book about the president, called “Donald Trump: A President Like No Other,” published in 2018.

2. This Nolan ass was busted in the infamous Shrimpscam sting

He was indicted on six counts, including racketeering, conspiracy, extortion, and money laundering.

Now that he has a clean slate, I would not be surprised if the orange anus tries to recruit him.

8. Actually, he was born in Canada.

He moved to the UK and took citizenship to get a Lordship. I believe, however, even though he was stripped of his Order of Canada, that he now resides back in Canada.

10. Tony Blair was the PM at the time

One day after applying for UK citizenship, it was granted. When the court cases were proceeding he was stripped of his ability to sit as a Conservative in the House of Lords. I don't know if that meant his Lordship was stripped as well, but on his Wiki it still says Lord Black and his wife is Lady Black.

16. Black ran such a scummy operation when he owned the Sun-Times.

They were actually running scams with the subscriptions.
