Trump Issues Full Pardon for Conservative Activist Dinesh D’Souza

Underwood made the remarks to reporters after President Donald Trump announced that he was pardoning conservative loyalist Dinesh D'Souza. He said D'Souza was treated very unfairly by the government. Trump tweeted by way of explanation. "Hillary's America" grossed $13 million at the domestic box office - healthy returns in the documentary category.

In February, Mr. D'Souza was disinvited from a speaking appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference after mocking the Parkland, Fla., shooting survivors on Twitter. Last year, D'Souza accused the Obama administration of going after him for "political" reasons, notes the Post. He later called it "insensitive to students who lost friends in a awful tragedy". He was convicted in 2014 of making illegal campaign donations to a New York Republican and sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house, and a fine of $30,000.

Mr D'Souza, who comes from a Roman Catholic family from Goa, had launched campaign against both Mr Obama and the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

D'Souza also personally contributed $10,000 to the campaign at a time when the legal limit for an individual contribution was $5,000.

D'Souza also often posted racist comments about former President Barack Obama, and as a student at Dartmouth University, he published an article titled "Dis Sho' Ain't No Jive, Bro" which was written in ebonics. The career prosecutors and agents did their job.

D'Souza's dire predictions (obviously) turned out to be prophecies - but there was one terrifying aspect of Obama's second term that even he failed to anticipate: that he would personally become one of the anti-colonialist-in-chief's victims.

"Obama & his stooges tried to extinguish my American dream & destroy my faith in America".

"I want to thank @realDonaldTrump for giving my husband a pardon but I particularly want to thank @SenTedCruz for putting it on his radar and helping make it happen!"

Some speculated that Trump's announcement might be meant to show how he could use the pardon power in possible future cases related to his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen and others.

Mr D'Souza was born in Mumbai and became a naturalised United States citizen in 1991.
