President Trump Pardons Dinesh D’Souza…

WHITE HOUSE –  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.(link)

    This one was obvious. This guy admitted doing what he did. In 99.9% of similar violations of election law, the violator is fined. Not this time. Why? Because he was a vociferous opponent of the Left, and produced a damaging documentary on Hillary.

    So the Left took advantage. Big time. No “prosecutorial discretion” here 🙂

    Met the man and his wife in my store. Very nice guy. Knew they were crucifying him because of him political views.
    Funny enough, his wife said she told him not to do it. and he said he realized he did the wrong thing once he did it.
    But he paid his time and followed the punishment by law.
    Glad to see him be given clemency.
    I hope they are doing well.
    His “Big Lie” book was brilliant.

    Wonderful! Love D’Souza! Even Martha, I’m ok with. But…

    Incarcerated former IL Governor Rod Blagojevich was destroying lives and performing fundamental transformations before most of you ever heard of 0bama. I don’t care if he was briefly on Trump’s TV show. He needs to rot, unless he can give up some major goods. Which he can’t.

    Rod Blagojevich was THE WORST thing to happen to Illinois. Ever. He single-handedly destroyed small businesses, ran others out of the state, decimated downstate funding, moved Springfield state jobs to Chicago, allowed the Gov. mansion to turn to ruin, ruined the economy, increased corruption statewide, and stole to empower the already massive Chicago Machine – and he started the moment he took office.

    Blago put Illinois into a downward spiral from which it has never recovered. He is a nasty, vindictive, power-mongering Democrat thief whose mission was to destroy hard-working downstate (heavily rural and Republican) and transfer what little they had left up to his fellow Chicago thugs. He succeeded. And Chicago was and is still a sh!thole.

    That said, his sentence for trying to sell 0bama’s senate seat was rather steep. Nonetheless, I hope President Trump is only toying with the idea of commuting Blago’s prison sentence in order to highlight some unknown purpose. Blago deserves to rot right where he is for all the misery and destruction I noted above, and more. He ruined lives, and I cannot tell you how much I personally despise him.

      Blago went to jail for selling Obama’s senate seat. So…ok. What did Obama know, and when did he know it? To the best of my recollection, nobody, not even the conservative media, asked that question. NOBODY.

      It shatters credulity to believe that Obama didn’t care who got his seat, or how. If he didn’t know, he was too stupid to be President. If he did know, he was party to a major crime. But nobody showed any interest whatsoever.

      Blago got impeached, removed, tried in Federal court, and sent to jail with remarkable speed and lack of coverage. He’s probably in a “luxury cell” (the kind mobsters get), partly bought and partly frightened into silence. If he decided to sing, he would bring down not just Obama, but the entire Chicago machine.

    President Trump is not going to pardon Blagoyavich, or Martha Stewart.

    The ‘source’ for those two names, was the press talking with President Trump on Air Force One earlier today.

    This is classic Trump. They brought up Kardashian meeting with him, and he probably told them he’s going to pardon Dsouza. Then when they asked who else he’s considering… he named two people he personally knows that went to jail. Blagoyavich, and Stewart.

    I don’t think he has any problem with Blago personally (they were Cordial on the Apprentice), but he hates Martha Stewart with a passion. She blamed her failure on the Apprentice on him, and he feels as if he was very supportive of her and she stabbed him in the back.

    The only reason these two names came up is because some presstitute asked him who else he’s considering, and he simply named two people he knows that went to jail.

        Mc Carthy:
        As Legal Insurrection’s Bill Jacobson notes, the 2008 Obama campaign was caught illegally hiding not $20,000 but nearly $2 million in irregular contributions (in addition to dragging its feet on the return of millions more in suspect donations). You probably don’t remember that because — I know this will shock you — the Obama Justice Department didn’t prosecute anyone. It was considered a mere hiccup: resolved by a fine considerably smaller than the $500,000 in bail D’Souza was forced to post lest he be detained pending trial on his multiple-felony indictment for conduct worth 25 times less that amount.

        The Obama Justice Department’s extortionate tactic of turning a regulatory violation into a potential seven-year felony put enormous pressure on D’Souza to plead guilty. When he did, rather than just accept its pound of flesh, the Justice Department aggressively pushed for a prison sentence. A bravura performance at the sentencing proceeding by D’Souza’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, convinced the sentencing judge not to imprison him; but D’Souza was still confined to a halfway house for several months — a ridiculous imposition since a halfway house is supposed to be a way-station where incarcerated inmates are transferred for integration back into society. No matter what you think of D’Souza’s politics, his treatment was abusive.

        President Trump’s pardon of Dinesh D’Souza is just.

      The reason Martha went to jail is because she stepped on the wrong toes, or should I say ran over the wrong toes. Do a search of “Martha Stewart Harry Macklowe”. Harry’s landscaper was a Vietnam Vet he had a soft spot for, and after the “Indecent” he said he would get her one day.

        President Trump has said in the past she’s a jerk. So it could be that she rubs people the wrong way and somebody got their revenge.

        In his book he said that NBC wanted to a seperate Apprentice with Martha. He thought it was a bad idea because it was confusing, but went along with it and treated Martha fairly, and promoted her, and told everybody how great she’d be. Then the show came out and bombed. She went around telling everybody that it bombed because Trump didn’t support her. He said it was the opposite of the truth and she refused to take any responsibility, when the reality was she was really bad at acting, didn’t have a warm personality, and had no charisma.

        So he feels personally betrayed by her…. and he’s probably not the only person she’s used like that.

        No way in HELL he pardons her. Never happen.

        You have to think too, a pardon won’t really do anything for her, she’s already served her time, it would only be a good will gesture and he has no intentions of doing that.

        The reason he’s mentioning her, besides getting his jollies, is to say “See, I could pardon Martha, I know her, did business with her…. but I’m a fair guy, so i’m not going to do it!”

        It gives him cover for pardoning other acquaintances, like Dsouza who actually deserve it and more honorable people.

          Trump said that of course it was laughable that she would fire Donald Trump, the creator of the show and a real estate Tycoon, and that was never even discussed. Also there was never any intention of cancelling the original show, hers was an offshoot.

          So apparently she makes up lies to make herself look better, probably has screwed over 1000 people she’s worked with.

    Mr. Trump is following the path of prosecutorial abuse and selective prosecution left in the wake of Comey, Mueller, and the hatchet men on the Mueller team. The pardon of D’Souza (politically motivated selective prosecution and grossly disproportionate sentence), Scooter Libby (perjury trap frame job) and the one rumored for Martha Stewart (perjury trap frame job) are casting sunlight on the troubling careers of the prosecutors who are currently investigating his 2016 campaign and using the same heavy-handed tactics to punish everyone involved through abusive process.

    Got a kick out of msm reporting on D’Souza’s pardon, especially NBC News. Their take: Of course, PDJT was fully within his legal rights to do this, BUT he didn’t follow the DOJ guidelines to get their approval! Really? The corrupt DOJ that is sandbagging him? They would most likely NOT approve! Flash back to Obozo pardoning all those drug dealers and lowlifes as he was leaving office last year. Do you think he asked the DOJ for approval? If he did, they all got okayed for pardon! I rest my case.

      D’Souza and General Flynn entered guilty pleas under duress: Either plead guilty, or else be subjected to a long drawn out ruinously expensive prosecution where you might not ultimately prevail. The easy way out was to plead guilty and accept the sentence.

      Not right. Not fair.

      D’Souza explains that the campaign finance violation he was charged with normally requires corrupt intent: Illegal campaign contributions given as part of a quid pro quo arrangement to purchase favors from an elected official. There was no such intention in his case, he simply wanted to help out a friend who had zero chance of winning the office she ran for. But, he was a “prominent rightwing critic of the Obama Administration” and so they turned the screws and threw the book at him.
