Capitol Report: Here’s the background to Conrad Black’s conviction that Trump wiped away

Former media mogul Conrad Black’s long-running legal saga has just seen another plot twist, with President Donald Trump granting a pardon to his biographer and onetime business associate.

The Canadian-born Black once faced 13 charges over the alleged misuse of company funds, but over the years only two charges had managed stick — one for obstruction of justice and another for wire fraud.

And those two are now wiped away.

Black’s Hollinger chain was once the world’s third-largest English-language newspaper company, operating more than 300 newspapers, including the Chicago Sun-Times, the National Post, the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph and Israel’s Jerusalem Post.
