Dinesh D'Souza, Pardoned by Trump, Claims Victory Over Obama Administration

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

Trump announced on Twitter his decision to pardon pundit and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty in 2014 to US campaign finance law violations and was an outspoken critic of Democratic former President Barack Obama, saying he had been "treated very unfairly by our government!"

"Trump's latest pardon makes crystal clear his willingness to use his pardon power to thwart the cause of justice, rather than advance it".

"The special counsel has awesome powers, as you know, but the president has even more awesome powers", Stone added.

Trump fired Comey last spring, a move that has come under intense scrutiny because of the ongoing Department of Justice investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

"So I'm very grateful to President Trump for giving me those rights back", he said.

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

The multi-page letter blasted Comey over his investigation of Trump's Democratic presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton . It is not typical for the Justice Department to announce the opening or reopening of an investigation.

D'Souza, 53, admitted in May 2014 that he illegally reimbursed two "straw donors" who donated $US10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 US Senate campaign in NY of Wendy Long, a Republican. "He was treated very unfairly by our government".

Before pleading guilty in 2014, D'Souza insisted on his innocence and claimed he was targeted for federal prosecution because of his anti-Obama views.

"In light of these facts, the President has determined that Mr. D'Souza is fully worthy of this pardon". Trump announced that he would pardon D'Souza Thursday morning on Twitter.

Blagojevich and Stewart also appeared on versions of Trump's former reality show "The Apprentice".

Blagojevich, a Democrat, was convicted of corruption for seeking to benefit from making a Senate appointment to fill the vacancy left after former Sen. D'Souza recalled that Obama was "raging" about the movie.

The conservative D'Souza gained notoriety for his anti-Obama stance that was the basis of his 2012 documentary 2016: Obama's America.

Trump said he was seriously considering commuting the sentence of Blagojevich, the Democratic former governor serving a 14-year prison sentence on numerous counts of corruption, including trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat that was vacated by Obama.

Trump later shared with reporters aboard Air Force One his thoughts on Blagojevich and Stewart. Trump also told reporters that what Blagojevich said, while "stupid", was something "many other politicians say".

D'Souza is a best-selling author and successful filmmaker who served as an adviser in the Reagan administration.

Trump last week posthumously pardoned boxer Jack Johnson, the first black world heavyweight champion, who was jailed a century ago because of his relationship with a white woman. Conservative Republicans had sought a pardon for Libby for years. The move follows Trump's high-profile pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an anti-immigrant activist who was convicted for criminal contempt of court for refusing to stop alleged practices targeting Latino drivers and undocumented immigrants.

Susan Hennessey, a fellow in national security in governance studies at the Brookings Institution, acknowledged on CNN that the president has unreviewable pardon authority.
