Liberals See Bad Motives, Obstruction in D’Souza Pardon

Liberals See Bad Motives, Obstruction in D’Souza Pardon

"Bharara & his goons bludgeoned me into the plea by threatening to add a second redundant charge carrying a prison term of FIVE YEARS", Mr. D'Souza said in a tweet.

"What my case shows in miniature is how Obama, and Hillary, too, have gangster-ized USA politics", he said.

It all started with Mr. Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY, who in a tweet was highly critical of the presidential pardon to Mr. D'Souza.

"I think to a certain extent Martha Stewart was harshly and unfairly treated". "So it was a move of ambition as I understand it".

D'Souza is both a best-selling author and a filmmaker, and NBC News describes him as a "conservative provocateur". 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. This was more or less the thesis of his 2012 documentary, 2016: Obama's America, which proved immensely popular with some conservative audiences.

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

D'Souza had plead guilty in 2014 to federal campaign finance law violations.

"I am thrilled and relieved and elated and as an immigrant in America, my American dream has been under something of a cloud, so I'm very relieved to have that cloud lifted", D'Souza told Fox News.

"Worst news since their parents told them to get summer jobs", D'Souza tweeted.

D'Souza, a conservative filmmaker, author and speaker was sentenced in September 2014 in federal court in NY to five years of probation after he admitted making illegal contributions to a U.S. Senate candidate in NY.

D'Souza was sentenced to five years of probation for violating federal campaign law. Trump said he spoke to D'Souza "for three minutes last night...he nearly had a heart attack".

White House spokesman Raj Shah echoed D'Souza's claim of selective prosecution.

It seems Martha Stewart could be getting an official pardon for her 2004 conviction, per recent comments made by President Donald Trump.

The president, who has never met D'Souza or spoken to him, last night called him on the phone to inform him about his decision.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-Manhattan), a top member of the Judiciary Committee, tweeted that Trump wants "to send a message that silence will be rewarded" to those being contacted by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election. A former top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, Libby was convicted of lying to investigators and obstruction of justice following the 2003 leak of the covert identity of a Central Intelligence Agency officer.

Critics believe the US president's motivation for pardoning these particular public figures is to send a message to the US Department of Justice and the FBI amid as Robert Mueller continues special counsel investigation.
