President Trump Pardons Dinesh D'Souza.

President Donald Trump said he plans to issue a pardon to Dinesh D'Souza. Dinesh is a prominent conservative commentator and filmmaker who was targeted by the Obama administration to silence him. Dinesh was convicted of making an illegal campaign contribution in 2014 and imprisoned for the felony offense...while celebrities like Rosie O'Donnell routinely abuse this law and skate. Dinesh, an Indian American, wrote and directed the movie "Hillary's America" and from 2010 to 2012 he was president of The King's College, a Christian school in New York City.
Then-U.S. attorney Preet Bharara, under Obama, announced D'Souza's conviction at the time, an attempt to silence him:
"Dinesh D'Souza attempted to illegally contribute over $10,000 to a Senate campaign, willfully 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."
Bharara was fired by Trump shortly after Trump took office in 2017. Trump said he will pardon D'Souza today, adding that D'Souza "was treated very unfairly by our government!"
Ted Cruz responded: "Bravo! Dinesh was the subject of a political prosecution, brazenly targeted by the Obama administration because 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."
