As momentum steps up for the Presidential Pardon for Kevin Trudeau, here’s a recent letter from KT to President Trump
Dear President Trump,
This is Kevin Trudeau. I am a #1 NY Times bestselling author of 6 books with nearly 50 million copies sold.
Today I am serving an egregious and unjust 10 year Federal Prison sentence for “contempt of court” for “willfully violating a court order”. This is the longest prison sentence ever imposed for the “non crime” of contempt.
My “heinous crime” was to dare go on TV and express my opinions, quote my books, and exercise my First Amendment Right of Free Speech.
However this “contempt” charge is all just a smoke screen.
I am in prison for purely political reasons: because my conservative “speech” goes against the establishment politicians, globalists and liberal elitist left. The real reasons I am in prison are because the Clinton and Obama administrations have been trying to silence me for decades for:
-exposing corporate and government corruption
-exposing Big Pharma, the Banks, and other special interests
-exposing corrupt establishment politicians from both parties
One political insider is quoted as saying “Trudeau has been on the Clinton and Obama hit list for years”.
Hillary Clinton, while Secretary of State, is also quoted as saying “Trudeau must be silenced. He is politically dangerous”.
For decades the Clinton and Obama Justice Department and other Federal agencies under the control of the executive Branch, have been on a political witch hunt against me for my conservative political speech on my radio show and in my books. The fact that tens of millions of people have bought my books and listened to me on radio and TV have made me a political target for decades.
Like Sheriff Joe, I have been unjustly attacked by the Obama and Clinton “deep state” holdovers in the Justice Department and a rogue activist blatantly biased Judge. As you know, “contempt” is not a felony, and not even a misdemeanor. “Contempt” is not an inherent “crime”.
The basic facts of the case are at KevinTrudeau.com. They are also in the Official Petition for Commutation of Sentence that I filed with the Presidential Pardon Office.
Basically the government and Judge said I “willfully violated a court order” because I went on TV and said that the Dr. Simeons HCG weight loss protocol that I described in my NY Times bestseller “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About”, was “easy”. Because I said the word “easy” I am in prison serving a 10 year sentence!
The Judge claims that he read the book and that the Dr. Simeons HCG weight loss method in the book could not be easy, therefore I “misrepresented the contents of the book” which the judge claims is a willful violation of his order.
I say over 30 times in the book that I personally found the HCG protocol to be easy when I did it myself and lost 45 pounds.
The word easy is subjective and a clearly a personal opinion. People who actually DID the HCG protocol also say it was easy. But none of this mattered to the judge. He said I “willfully” misrepresented the contents of the book when I said it was “easy”, and sentenced me to the longest prison term in history for contempt…..10 years in Federal Prison.
10 years in Federal Prison for saying the word “easy” is outrageous! Remember, one judge charged me with contempt….not a single person who bought the book complained (and over 5 million copies were sold).
I am 100% innocent as I did not “willfully” violate the court order. I believed that when I was on TV talking extemporaneously without a script about my book, that I was simply giving my personal opinions, quoting the book, and exercising my First Amendment rights of free speech.
However the judge would not allow me to use the First Amendment as a defense. He also said I could not even utter the words “First Amendment” in “his” courtroom.
I also relied on the advice of counsel and had everything reviewed and approved by my lawyers to make sure that everything was in compliance with all court orders and laws. The lawyers said then, and still say now, that I did not violate the order and I did not misrepresent the contents of the book. Needless to say, I obviously did not “willfully” violate the order. To the contrary, I was extremely diligent to make sure everything was 100% legal and in compliance with the order. I obviously had no “intent” to violate the order.
But even if I was 100% guilty of “willfully violating the court order”, 10 years incarceration for contempt of court and for saying the word “easy” is too excessive. It borders on human rights violations. If another country did this to me, I am sure that you, Mr. President, would get on the telephone and call the President of that country and secure my release.
You are the only person who can correct this horrible injustice and get me released from Federal Prison.
That is why I filed an Official Petition for Commutation of Sentence, asking you Mr. President, to commute (lower) my sentence to “time served” (I have already served nearly 4 years in prison and have exhausted all appeals).
Mr. President, I feel I deserve a full pardon as I am 100% innocent and this is clearly a politically motivated action by the “establishment” politicians to silence and discredit someone who has major influence over millions of people and whose conservative “speech” and opinions they hate.
However, I am asking you to at least “commute” my sentence to time served and have me released. 4 years in prison is more than enough punishment even if I was guilty of contempt. Commuting my sentence is easy for you to do.
Remember, this is not a “crime” per se, as speech is not a “crime”.
This is about a NY Times bestselling book that everyone who bought loved (over 5 million copies sold).
This is about Free Speech and government censorship.
This is about judges who disregard the law and do what they want based on their personal political views and bias.
I was not charged with fraud or any crime by any law enforcement agency. I was charged with contempt by a single judge.
I was not fined and not ordered to pay any restitution.
There is no dispute that the people who bought the book loved the book (the government said so at my sentencing and the government could not produce even 1 person as a witness that said they bought the book and felt mislead).
There is no dispute that the weight loss method described in the book works. The government agree that it is extremely effective. It is being used now at thousands of clinics all across America and the world and endorsed by many medical doctors.
There is no dispute that everyone who bought the book received what they ordered (and more with all the free bonuses).
There is no dispute that anyone who asked for a refund (less that 8%) received a refund as there as a 100% money back guarantee.
The “real reason” I am in prison has nothing to do with the book or the fact that I said the word “easy”. The real reason is political. It is about discrediting a conservative voice that has a huge “following”.
Remember, there is no fraud here. There is no “crime” here. If there was fraud, I would have been charged with fraud.
There is not even one customer who lost any money as everyone received what they ordered or received a refund if they asked for one. There are no “victims” and no “injured parties”.
What has happened to me is totally unfair and a gross injustice.
Mr. President, hundreds of thousands of my supporters have reached out to you, some of your senior staff and advisors, and Senators and Congressmen, all advocating for my release and encouraging you to grant my Petition and pardon me or at least commute (lower) my sentence.
You can do a great thing for an American author and citizen.
You can do a great thing for Free Speech and the Constitution.
You can do the “right thing”.
Commuting my sentence is simply the “right thing to do”.
I heard you speak in North Dakota a few days ago, and you said you do the right thing without thinking about it.
I believe you. You are a great man and a great leader. Millions of my supporters, readers, and those who watched my on TV or listened to me on radio for years are wanting you to take positive action and commute my sentence.
Please pardon me or at least grant my Petition and commute my sentence to “time served”.
Obama commuted the sentences of nearly 2000 Federal inmates. I knew some of the men whose sentences were commuted. Many were real criminals who committed real crimes. Yet there sentences were reduced by President Obama and they were set free.
I should have my sentence commuted for many reasons, mostly because 10 years is simply an outrageously long sentence for “contempt of court”.
Commuting my sentence is the right thing to do, and it is very good politically as well. The millions of people who support me will love you for taking this positive action. Please have compassion for this situation.
At KevinTrudeau.com are the 4 previous letters I sent you explaining the details of the situation as well as several other documents including:

-“The 30 pieces of evidence that the Judge would not allow in court that proves Kevin Trudeau is 100% innocent” (5 pages)
I can send these documents to you if you desire.
Mr. President, please grant my Petition and pardon me or at least commute my sentence to time served and have me released.
I have skills and talents that you could use if you desire. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve you in any capacity if that is your pleasure.
I support you 100%.
I support your family 100%.
I support “Make America Great Again” 100%.
I will be forever in your debt.
I look forward to hearing your positive response very soon, shaking your hand, and thanking you in person.
By the way, you are doing a brilliant job! It is clear that you will be known as “The Greatest President of All Time”.
