    Presidents have the power to pardon whoever. We have a President who could give a damn how things look until there’s blowback.

    Conrad Black is a great writer who was framed by the Bush administration, charged with "honest services" fraud for trying to keep his major holding, the Chicago Sun-Times, from going under. The Feds appointed Bush crony Richard Breeden to be Special Monitor of the Sun-Times, preventing Black from selling the newspaper in 2004 for $18 a share. Breeden later gifted himself with $50 million as monitor and gave his accomplices $250 million from the company's funds. He then forced the remaining husk of Sun-Times Media Group into bankruptcy in April 2009. Wiping out all the newspaper shareholders. Bravo to Trump for partially correcting this injustice to Conrad Black. Now if only Trump could investigate Breeden for why he held on to the $7 billion in Madoff money that belonged to Jeffrey Pickower, money he was supposed to release to Madoff's victims promptly instead of looting these held funds to pay Breeden's sky high legal bills.

    They were neighbors for 30 years. At least he isn't a drug dealer or terrorist. Those were the Clintons and Obama's favorite people they liked to pardon.

      @Stoney Curtis Yeah, manning got off easier by not having to serve the sentence, Conrad Black is just getting his ability to reenter the United States.

      Linda Minton...Sure, Obama reduced Manning's sentence to 7 years. The difference is Trump is a SHITBAG and pardoned Black because he wrote a book praising Trump...NO OTHER REASON. You must be a really ignorant POS, to still be supporting Trump, even after all his lies, all his frauds, all his unethical behavior, all of his incompetence. Trump is alienating our allies, damaging U.S. credibility, and doing harm to our national interests. Trump is a financially compromised Russian asset. All those sanctioned Russian oligarchs, like Yevgeny Prigozhin, Aras Agalarov, Oleg Deripaska, Roman Abramovich...96 in all, many of them helped fund Trump's 2016 campaign to the tune of tens of millions of dollars...and filtered other monies directly to Trump through shell companies and illicit real estate deals. Russian organizations, IRA, Concord Management, Consulting LLC, which are controlled by a Russian oligarch, Yevgeny Prigozhin, a close ally of Putin's spent more than $1.25 million a month just on social media campaigns favoring Trump in the months leading up to the election according to the special counsel Robert Mueller. A Russian American energy tycoon-who boasted to a Kremlin official in July 2016 of being “actively involved in Trump’s election campaign”-donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Trump Victory fund. And a company affiliated with a sanctioned Russian oligarch paid $1 million to Michael Cohen, then Trump’s personal lawyer, for unspecified services after the election. For example, consider Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov’s transfer of $20 million to an American bank account just days after a meeting that he organized between the Trump campaign’s most senior officials, including Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, and a Russian government attorney.Does anyone actually believe they did it out of the goodness of their hearts?...or because they think Trump is a swell guy? A much more plausible theory is that Trump is DEEP in the pocket of Russian oligarchs, which is the same thing as being in the pocket of the Kremlin.
      You MAGAtards are a special kind of stupid.

      No he didn't. Manning's sentence was commuted. (not a pardon)

      @Linda Minton Maybe it was because Chelsea Manning actually performed a valuable service for the nation, at huge personal risk, by revealing terrible acts of the US Military, while Conrad Black never performed a service for anyone except Trump and himself.

      @Kid Icarus Than why did he commute Manning's sentence?

      @Linda Minton please do a little bit of research and you will learn that Obama was actually a pretty staunch establishment figurehead. He was not at all for whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning or Julian Assange. Or Edward Snowden.
