Conrad Black: Trump pardons ex-media mogul

She said Black's case attracted broad support from many high-profile individuals - including former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Elton John and Rush Limbaugh - who have "vigorously vouched for his exceptional character".

"In light of these facts, Mr Black is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency". Hollinger was the publisher of a number of papers throughout the world, including The Daily Telegraph, Chicago Sun-Times and The Jerusalem Post, as well as hundreds of smaller community newspapers, according to Deadline.

The White House statement on the pardon touted Black's "tremendous contributions to business".

His legal battles began in 2004 when he was accused of siphoning off tens of millions of dollars from the sale of newspapers owned by Hollinger International, his holding company.

However, the pressure from shareholders would ultimately lead to a probe by an internal committee of directors, followed by investigations of Black's businesses by the U.S. Securities Commission and the Department of Justice, which culminated in criminal charges of fraud and obstruction of justice against him.

The office of the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, declined to comment.

He also penned and op-ed for Canada's National Post, a newspaper he founded in the 1990s, in response to the pardon.

He said he initially thought he was being pranked when he was told he had a call from the White House, but he picked and heard Mr Trump ask: "Is that the great Lord Black?"

A description of Black's book on Trump compared it to two other presidential biographies he had written and said that this time around Black had turned "his attention to his "friend" President Donald J. Trump".

"If you were able to put in a cameo appearance and say a supporting word, I'm sure it would have an impact on the group and be favourably noted in the press", Black wrote.
