Former District One Congressman Rick Renzi has been a free man since 2017 and now he would like a pardon from President Trump. Renzi completed a three-year prison sentence after he was convicted on corruption, money laundering and other charges in 2013. He was convicted of conspiring to use his congressional seat to make companies buy land from ex-business associates so they could repay a debt to him. The “Arizona Daily Sun” reports a lawyer for Renzi sent a letter to the Justice Department last month asking them to open an investigation into alleged misconduct on the part of the investigators who looked into Renzi. A nearly eight minute video has been posted on YouTube denying Renzi’s involvement. Renzi now lives in Virginia after he was released from prison in 2017.
