The Funniest Tweets about Trump Pardoning Dinesh D'Souza

"What my case shows in miniature is how Obama, and Hillary, too, have gangster-ized USA politics", he said. That prosecution was led by one of Bharara's predecessors as USA attorney, James B. Comey, who would go on to be Federal Bureau of Investigation director and also get fired by Trump. "He was treated very unfairly by our government!"

In this May 20, 2014 file photo, conservative scholar and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, left, accompanied by his lawyer Benjamin Brafman leaves federal court, in NY. Some of the biggest names in the Republican Party made appearances at the conference, which hosts 1,500 delegates from across the country through May 31. His 2010 book "The Roots of Obama's Rage" was made into a film, "2016: Obama's America", which was popular with conservative groups.

"Bravo! @realDonaldTrump", Ted Cruz, R-Tex., tweeted following the pardon announcement.

Comey was in charge of the office that prosecuted Stewart, Bharara prosecuted D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, and Fitzgerald prosecuted Blagojevich, as well as former Bush White House aide Scooter Libby, whom Trump pardoned in April. "The career prosecutors and agents did their job".

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

Mr. D'Souza slammed Bharara in an radio interview too.

Watchdog groups criticized D'Souza's pardon, saying it signaled the president's contempt for the rule of law. "I got to tell you man-to-man you've been screwed, '" D'Souza told "Fox & Friends" on Friday. He was sentenced to five years of probation, including eight months of supervised stay at a halfway house, and fined $30,000 (Rs 20.22 lakh), reported CNN.

D'Souza was born in Mumbai and became a naturalised USA citizen in 1991. "I am not getting into process, but what I will say is the president has the constitutional authority". "And it does not exist in the world of Donald Trump", she said.

Prosecutors said D'Souza had other individuals donate money to Republican Wendy Long, a Republican who was challenging Sen.

The move makes it ever clearer that, in the Trump administration, the odds of a pardon are better for those with a celebrity backer, those who have become a cause celebre among conservatives and those with a reality TV connection.

They said D'Souza was "exploiting the fact that he happens to be an outspoken critic of President Obama in a baseless attempt to avoid criminal prosecution". Arpaio was spared the prospect of serving jail time after a conviction stemming from his use of racially targeted immigration patrols. Beneficiaries include controversial Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been convicted of criminal contempt of a court, and Scooter Lobby, a George W Bush White House staffer convicted in 2007 of leaking the identity of an undercover Central Intelligence Agency officer.
