President Trump has pardoned former media mogul, author, and historian Conrad Black. Black was questionably convicted by Chicago federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald who is now James Comey's lawyer.

Black also wrote a book about President Trump but says that the book was not completely uncritical of the president.

According to Fox News:

In 2007, Black was convicted of defrauding investors and obstructing justice. The Supreme Court ultimately struck down several of the convictions and his prison sentence was reduced to 42 months.

...

Black, who is also a historian and author, has lavished praise on Trump in countless columns and a political biography titled “Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other,” which came out a year ago.

...

“I have absolutely no reason to believe the president is even aware that I wrote that book,” Black told Ingraham. “He certainly has never mentioned it. And in any case, anyone who has read it can see that it is not uncritical.”

Trump’s likely motivation was that Black had received an “unjust verdict,” and should have never been charged, Black said.

Black continues to blast the prosecution who convicted him, stating that they would be banned from their jobs in any other country.

Media outlets are pointing to Black's book about the president as a major reason as to why he was pardoned.
