Trump has announced he will Pardon the famous Conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza !!

The "D" was convicted of violating campaign finance law a couple of years ago when he re-imbursed people for campaign contributions and kept a record of it (instead of cash).

Trump says it was unfair and Senator Ted Cruz says it was an Obama jealousy hit.

The ball busting continues !! 😎🚬

Trump will pardon conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted of campaign finance violation

President Donald Trump said Thursday he plans to issue a pardon to Dinesh D'Souza, a prominent conservative commentator and filmmaker who was convicted of making an illegal campaign contribution.

Trump said he will pardon D'Souza on Thursday, adding that D'Souza "was treated very unfairly by our government!"

Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!





Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz Retweeted Donald J. Trump

Bravo! @realDonaldTrump Dinesh was the subject of a political prosecution, brazenly targeted by the Obama administration bc of his political views. And he’s a powerful voice for freedom, systematically dismantling the lies of the Left—which is why they hate him. This is Justice.

Apparently, so does the witness tampering, abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

Someone more deserving would be Leonard Peltier, who was framed and false evidence admitted . If anyone's due a pardon, Leonard is.

He was treated unfairly by the government?

He plead guilty to funneling money to a candidate through straw donations.

So does this mean they will not be prosecuting Rosie O'Donnell for what appear to be the same crimes?

Nah... most of that ended when Obama left office.

Let's see what the IG report says...

I wonder how Trump's expert on prison and sentencing reform, Kim Kardashian, feels about this.

They do not even appear to be the same crimes.

He could very well be sending a signal to Flynn and others, but there’s a fly in the ointment. Flynn has already been singing like a canary. And if he’s pardoned, he can still be compelled to testify—and the kicker is he can’t plea the 5th.

yes they do
or did she not contribute more than the legal amount?
or are you unaware of individual campaign contribution limits?

DSouza was not charged or plead guilty to going over the limit.

He made contributions in other people's names (straw donors) and , apparently, lied to the FEC.

Good for Trump. I hope this sets a precedent that allows anyone off the hook that violates campaign finance laws. Because money has never been a problem in politics.



(How's my positivity about Trumps actions going?)

In 2012, the Federal Election Campaign Act limited campaign contributions to $5,000 from "any individual to any one candidate," the indictment stated. D’Souza gave Long $5,000 from himself and another $5,000 from his wife in March 2012. Months later, he asked others — an assistant and romantic interest — to donate to Long's campaign on behalf of themselves and their spouses, promising to later reimburst them $20,000 in cash, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a statement online.

Then-U.S. attorney Preet Bharara announced D'Souza's conviction at the time. "Dinesh D'Souza attempted to illegally contribute over $10,000 to a Senate campaign, wilfully undermining the integrity of the campaign finance process," Bharara said. "Like many others before him, of all political stripes, he has had to answer for this crime – here with a felony conviction."

Guess you know better than a former U.S. Attorney?

Rosie O’Donnell made illegally over-sized campaign donations to at least five Democratic federal candidates, according to a Post analysis of campaign filings. The liberal comedian has regularly broken Federal Election Commission rules limiting the total any one person can give to an individual candidate at $2,700 per election. The limit applies separately to primaries, runoffs and general elections.

Oh and good ole rosie used fake names and addresses.......

It seems weird with President Trump pardoning people during his time in office.Don't presidents usually wait until like the last day in office to pardon people?

No. But you are not presenting the entire situation in complete context. He tried to donate that money through other people.

Rosie donated in her name. I have not seen where she used fake names and addresses.

Have a source for that claim?

Rosie O’Donnell used several different New York addresses and marked down different variations of her name while donating a combined $5,400 in contributions over the limit to the five political candidates, federal filings show. An analysis conducted by the New York Post presents potential legal trouble Rosie O’Donnell could face if authorities discover that the former View co-host used different variations of her name and different addresses to exceed the legal donation limit to the same political candidate.
