Trump to give 'full pardon' to Dinesh D'Souza

President Donald Trump has announced on Twitter that he will fully pardon conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza on Thursday.

He urged friends to donate to the 2012 U.S. Senate campaign of personal friend Wendy Long, and then reimbursed them, circumventing campaign finance law.

Courthouse News' Adam Klasfeld unearthed the letter. Now it's Dinesh D'Souza. "I deeply regret my conduct".

"I trust the court will carefully consider my letter and impose a fair, appropriate and just sentence", she ended.

Dinesh D'souza has stirred controversy earlier for his comments about former US 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. "He was treated very unfairly by our government!" the president tweeted. We don't put you in jail. The president has done a marvelous act of justice. "Issuing pardons used to be a more common practice".

The United States will also continue to pursue litigation against China at the World Trade Organization. He said the two countries were in talks and had made "meaningful progress".

Judge Richard Berman dismissed the bias claims as completely unfounded. "That is what we did in this case and what we will continue to do".

Ted Cruz also weighed in, applauding the president for the pardon. D'Souza, who comes from a Roman Catholic family from Goa, had launched campaign against both Obama and the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

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

In a book titled The End of Racism: Finding Values in an Age of Technoaffluence, D'Souza said slavery wasn't a racist institution and segregation "represented a compromise on the part of the Southern ruling elite seeking, in part, to protect blacks". "But these are infractions and crimes that are rarely prosecuted, and many believe that he was the subject of some selective prosecution from the previous administration", Shah said on Fox News Channel.

By pardoning Dinesh D'Souza, President Trump is undermining the rule of law by pardoning a political supporter who is an unapologetic convicted felon. Word on the street is that he is also considering pardons of Martha Stewart and former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
