[Ed. – We’re still waiting for anything to be done about Rosie O’Donnell’s egregious violation of political donation laws. Meanwhile, in light of the pardons/commutations by Democratic presidents and governors of high-dollar embezzlers, drug criminals, illegal aliens imprisoned for violent felonies, and terrorist bombers, the Complaints window is closed.]
Saying he was treated “very unfairly,” President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he will pardon conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, who pleaded guilty four years ago to violating US campaign finance laws.
“Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today,” Trump tweeted. “He was treated very unfairly by our government!”
D’Souza, 57, a caustic critic of former president Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was fined $30,000 and sentenced in September 2014 to five years of probation for making illegal campaign contributions.
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.
