All About Dinesh D’Souza, Who Is Set for a Trump Pardon

Dinesh D'Souza America Documentary

D'Souza was sentenced to five years of probation for violating federal campaign law. Then-Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who prosecuted the case, emphatically denied any political motivation. Last August, he pardoned former Arizona lawman and political ally Joe Arpaio less than a month after he was convicted of criminal contempt in a case involving racial profiling of Hispanics.

The White House said in a statement that the president believed D'Souza was the "victim of selective prosecution for violations of campaign finance laws" and that he "accepted responsibility for his actions". Trump said she was "unfairly treated" and "used to be my biggest fan in the world".

White House spokesman Raj Shah denied that this pardon was an effort by Trump to send a message to political allies wrapped up in the Russian Federation investigation. On Wednesday, Trump met with Kim Kardashian to discuss prison and sentencing reform.

"I knew that causing a campaign contribution to be made in the name of another was wrong and something the law forbids", D'Souza said at the May 2014 hearing.

One day after meeting with Kim Kardashian West to discuss prison reform, Donald Trump on Thursday used his presidential pardon powers to right a perceived wrong in the US criminal justice system.

"Lawmakers must act now to close New York's double jeopardy loophole and ensure that anyone who evades federal justice by virtue of a politically expedient pardon can be held accountable if they violate NY law".

After D'Souza's pardon, some constitutional scholars, legal analysts and Democratic lawmakers accused Trump of undermining the rule of law with pardons based on political considerations. "In light of these facts, the President has determined that Mr. D'Souza is fully worthy of this pardon", the statement said. Moreover, Mr. Obama's 2008 presidential campaign was itself fined $375,000 in 2013 for failing to disclose millions of dollars in contributions and missing deadlines for refunding millions in excess contributions.

The surprise pardon comes as the the Trump administration pushes criminal justice reform. The career prosecutors and agents did their job. Most pardons are merciful.
