    All The President’s Pardons

    All The President’s Pardons

    Dinesh, Martha and Blago (?), oh my

    ALL the pardons!

    Thursday, Trump announced via Twitter that he will be issuing a full pardon to Dinesh D’Souza.

    “The conservative author and filmmaker who pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign finance laws in 2014 after he was indicted earlier that year on charges that he illegally used straw donors to contribute to Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long in New York in 2012,” reports CNN.

    CNN reports Trump called D’Souza Wednesday night to tell him of the coming pardon before announcing it Thursday. The pardon had been issued before Trump tweeted about it.

    The President told reporters D’Souza “almost had a heart attack” upon hearing the news.

    The White House statement:

    Today, President Donald J. Trump issued an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) to Dinesh D’Souza, an accomplished author, lecturer, and scholar.

    Mr. D’Souza was, in the President’s opinion, a victim of selective prosecution for violations of campaign finance laws. Mr. D’Souza accepted responsibility for his actions, and also completed community service by teaching English to citizens and immigrants seeking citizenship.

    In light of these facts, the President has determined that Mr. D’Souza is fully worthy of this pardon.

    Needless to say, D’Souza is elated.

    D’Souza’s wife thanked Sen. Cruz for keeping the issue in the spotlight.

    Sen. Cruz praised Trump’s decision to issue a pardon:

    Trump is also considering a few other pardons:

    DONATE

    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    Now: imagine the justice department without that GOPe rat sessions stopping justice: hillary klinton would be indicted by now, as would lois lerner, as would obama.

    Sessions is proving to be as big a Benedict Arnold as obama.

    D’Souza, I approve. Stewart, too, since she was ground under US Attorney James Comey’s boot for a process crime.

    But Blago? That’s a crook of a different stripe.

    How about Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the video maker Hillary jailed for the Benghazi murders.

      Hopefully soon! Absolutely. Although, he had a prior conviction on somesuch and they claimed he violated his parole, no? He may not have any charges or conviction based on the film/arrest. Nice way to bring that episode back up though.

        Nakoula Nakoula is a common crook, who was convicted of fraud, and the terms of his probation included not using false names, and not using the internet without his probation officer’s permission. He violated both of those terms, and was unlucky enough to get caught when first Islamists used his video as an excuse for a (preplanned) riot in Cairo, and 0bama then seized on it to explain away Benghazi as well. If not for that he’d still have been in violation, but he’d have got away with it. There is no constitutional right to get away with probation violations just because nobody’s looking.

      Well, he was prosecuted on probation violations for lying to investigators and lying about his use of a pseudonym, but yeah, it probably wouldn’t have happened were it not expedient for the mess Clinton found herself in after Benghazi. He’s been out since 2013.

      I wondered the same thing. And for all the people banging on about what the the UK authorities did to Tommy Robinson, none of them brought up Nakoula Basseley Nakoula being hauled off and put I the slammer for… what?

    What about pardoning: Mark Basseley Yousef, the guy blamed for the infamous “Benghazi Riot Video”?

    If ever there was a guy who needed to be pardoned for a “Crime” this guy deserves one.

      There was nothing imaginary about his crime, and his victims, real people whom he defrauded of their money, would not see justice in pardoning him. He was not punished for making the video; he went back to prison for his actual crime of fraud, and the only role the video played is that it got him caught.

    James Comey prosecuted Martha Stewart. Trump should have pardoned her first just to symbolically jam it up Comey’s rectum.

    Peter Fitzgerald prosecuted Blago, he is a friend of Comey, and recently joined Comey’s defense team.

    Trump did not like Dinesh’s prosecutor either.
