President Trump Plans Pardon for Dinesh D'Souza. Who Is He?

Trump pardons Dinesh D’Souza, conservative agitator who pleaded guilty to campaign finance fraud

"By pardoning Dinesh D'Souza, President Trump is undermining the rule of law by pardoning a political supporter who is an unapologetic convicted felon".

"Instead, it looks like the president is abusing his pardon power, either for sheer political reasons, or to send a message to people under investigation, or because the defendant happened to have high name identification", he said. Really? said the message that can be taken from Trump's executive clemency is that "maybe the president is sending a signal of loyalty and reassurance to friends and family members who may soon find themselves facing similar criminal charges in connection with the special counsel's Russian Federation inquiry". Stone has claimed that the counsel is investigating his personal life and business affairs because he has no evidence of collusion.

"These guys chose to make an example of me", D'Souza said.

Mueller in recent weeks has issued subpoenas to two of Stone's associates.

Donald Trump announced today that he was pardoning conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty in 2014 to making illegal campaign contributions.

D'Souza was prosecuted by Preet Bharara, a former U.S. Attorney in NY who became a bitter Trump opponent after the president fired him, along with dozens of other federal prosecutors, upon taking office.

President Donald Trump exercised his pardon powers on Thursday. Trump said Johnson had served 10 months in prison "for what many view as a racially motivated injustice". The case was prosecuted in the Southern District of NY, where the U.S. Attorney at the time was Preet Bharara, who Trump fired soon after becoming president.

Comey was in charge of the office that prosecuted Stewart, Bharara prosecuted D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, and Fitzgerald prosecuted Blagojevich, as well as former Bush White House aide Scooter Libby, whom Trump pardoned in April.

D'Souza made the movie "2016: Obama's America" in 2012 and followed it up with "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party". "The career prosecutors and agents did their job", he said.

"He's being fearless and courageous", he said, referring to the D'Souza pardon.

Trump said Blagojevich was put in jail "for being stupid and saying things that. many other politicians say". "Contribution limits are a key bulwark against corruption in politics and pardoning the man who knowingly violated them is in direct conflict with his pledge to drain the swamp in Washington".

D'Souza is a former policy analyst under President Ronald Reagan and a prolific author well known for works critical of former President Barack Obama.

D'Souza came in for criticism recently for a tweet mocking student survivors of the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida. "I got to tell you man-to-man you've been screwed, '" D'Souza told "Fox & Friends" on Friday. In another tweet, he wrote "Adults 1, kids 0".

Arpaio is now running in the Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona.
