Trump Considers Ulbricht of Silk Road for Pardon
The U.S President Donald Trump has recently made a report that stated whether he shall give the jailed founder of the dark web marketplace a pardon or not. As per the reports, the counsel’s office of the White House has been reviewing the case document of Ulbricht. As per the reports, nearly three different sources turned out to be the same with the matter that claims the president has been looking forward to reviewing the case before the next pardon round and communication that shall be happening on the 20th Jan 2021 when there will be the inauguration of the President-elect Joe Biden.
The final decision is not out yet, but it is expected that Ulbricht’s case will have the verdict sooner. However, the notorious founder of the Silk Road is said to have the influential backers within the inner circle of the president who must have pushed for the pardon. So far, the documents are now forwarded to the contacts in the White House and once the validation and checking will be done, the verdict will be announced. Weldon has further added in the statement that he was even contacted by the family of Ulbricht for the case and was hoping that Trump will at least commute the sentence incomplete. The case however has more support than any other case to date must have got.
Ulbricht is the founder and the main holder of the dark web marketplace called the Silk Road. It was started in the year 2011 that solely used bitcoins as the primary method of payment to deal in illicit contraband that even included weapons and drugs. The use of such a dark marketplace was to hide the server's location and drew the whole law enforcement as the site started gaining more popularity.
