Trump announces pardon of Dinesh D'Souza

Trump to pardon Dinesh D’Souza

Trump announced on Thursday that he would issue a pardon to D'Souza, who pleaded guilty in 2014 to making illegal campaign contributions.

As he left Washington for a trip to Texas, Trump tweeted: "Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D'Souza today". Trump said she was "unfairly treated" and "used to be my biggest fan in the world".

President Trump hugs Jordan McLinn, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, after signing the "Right to Try" act Wednesday. Arpaio also drew attention for his support of Trump's effort to falsely accuse Obama of not being born in the U.S.

President Trump has most recently pardoned legendary boxer Jack Johnson, Scooter Libby, and Joe Arpaio. Trump said on Twitter.

And MSNBC host Chris Hayes pointed out D'Souza parrots the same "vile, antisemitic" rhetoric as former ABC star Roseanne Barr.

He was convicted of a felony, and spent eight months in federal custody.

D'Souza allegedly coordinated donations to Long's campaign through friends and acquaintances.

"As our office's record reflects, we will investigate and prosecute violations of federal law, particularly those that undermine the integrity of the democratic electoral process, without regard to the defendant's political persuasion or party affiliation", he said.

The Republican pundit and provocateur pleaded guilty to attempting to donate $20,000 to a Senate campaign through straw donors by offering to reimburse associates who sent in the money. Federal law limits campaign contributions to $5,000 per individual in an election cycle.

In 2012, D'Souza released his revelatory, investigative documentary 2016: Obama's America. The judge said D'Souza had shown the court no evidence that he was targeted.

D'Souza was a policy analyst for the late President Ronald Reagan and as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. The students had lost 17 classmates and teachers in a shooting that month.

"Worst news since their parents told them to get summer jobs", he wrote after Florida lawmakers voted against an assault weapons ban.
