Unfortunately, there is no means by which a federal conviction (misdemeanor or felony) can be expunged. A presidential pardon will vacate the conviction, but interestingly, even the pardon will not expunge the conviction; your National Crime Information Center history will simply note the pardon.

There is no provision for expungement of federal convictions. You can seek a pardon which must be granted by the President of the United States. Presidential pardons are extremely rare and tend to be highly political. If you are a major Democratic donor, you could possibly get a pardon. Otherwise, the chances are not good.

Accordingly, before taking any action or refraining from taking any action, the questioner should consult with an attorney licensed to practice in his or her jurisdiction.
While the prior questions are accurate, I suspect that you may be eligible for a pardon after 20 years if you have the right contacts with the President of the United States. Of course, that takes money and using the right attorney.
