Trump Says He'll Pardon Dinesh D'Souza
31 May, 2018, 22:15
President Donald Trump sent a powerful message Thursday by offering a pardon to conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, who claimed that he was selectively targeted for his public attacks on President Barack Obama.
But on Thursday, Trump made a decision to strike an even more powerful blow against America's criminal "injustice" system, by offering a full pardon to the former political prisoner - and path-breaking public intellectual - Dinesh D'Souza. "He was treated very unfairly by our government!" the president declared on Twitter.
If you're old enough to remember, Dinesh D'Souza was once considered something of a conservative luminary.
Trump has pardoned other notable conservatives convicted of various offenses. His corruption truly knows no bounds.
"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 in 2014.
"Obama's political prosecution null and void", she added. Former U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara also denied political motivation.
Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitanosaid the reason Trump "correctly" said D'Souza was treated "unfairly" is that "historically this has not been treated as a criminal prosecution".
The filmmaker, author and speaker was sentenced in September 2014 in federal court in NY to five years of probation after he admitted making illegal contributions to a U.S. Senate candidate in NY. Trump's announcement that he will pardon D'Souza follows the president's granting last week of a rare posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, boxing's first black heavyweight champion. D'Souza, however, was sentenced to five years of probation, eight months of overnight confinement, a $30,000 fine, and one day of community service per week for five years.
In 2014, he was convicted of making an illegal campaign contribution of $20,000 to a politician based in NY. Most pardons are merciful.
