In 2014, Dinesh D’Souza was charged for breaking finance campaign laws which is a felony. The donations to Wendy Long’s 2012 campaign were $20,000. Dinesh was accused of funneling the money through “straw donors” to funnel the donation. Dinesh plead guilty, was sentenced to 5 months in a halfway house, 5 years probation and paid a $30,000 fine.
The man who had put him away, former Attorney General Preet Bharara tweeted “The President has the right to pardon but the facts are these: D’Souza intentionally broke the law, voluntarily plead guilty, apologized for his conduct & the judge found no unfairness. The career prosecutors and agents did their job. Period,” and that he stands by the conviction. Of course he plead guilty, otherwise they would’ve completely destroyed his life.
However there is more of a back story here. The FBI file had shown that there was in fact a target on D’Souza’s back simply because he was a notable political opponent of former President Barack Hussein Obama. He has spoken out about Obama and his book “Dreams From My Father”. As well as making political movies exposing the truth about Obama and the left.
Amazing how the left continuously attacks conservatives but people on the left keep getting a free pass as it were. Rosie O’Donnell for example had committed the same felonies but on a much larger scale. Offering to bribe politicians to block potential bills in congress. Breaking campaign finance laws herself, multiple times with more money. Also using aliases and different addresses. But nothing ever came of it. I guess “Democrat” is a get out of jail free card.
I am glad President Trump pardoned Dinesh. He paid his dues, served his time. He is not a bad man, and was only targeted because of his opposition to Obama. Whether it is actual law breaking or certain language being said about others in media [i.e. – Roseanne getting attacked as a racist and losing her show with ABC, and Samantha Bee host of “Full Frontal” calling Ivanka Trump a feckless c*nt but not suffering any repercussions [though has lost sponsors, deservingly].
Nor Bill Maher saying House Nig*er on his HBO show. It is blatant hypocrisy and proves in fact if you are on the left, you can do and say as you please without repercussion. You can be corrupt, you can break the law and nothing will happen to you.
But God help you if you’re a conservative. Especially an outspoken one and to add having a massive following. Now the Attorney General of New York has stated they will look to “rid the double jeopardy loophole” in order to prosecute Dinesh D’Souza again. New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood describing the pardon as “thwarting the cause of justice“. Double jeopardy is protected under the constitution first off. Secondly, Dinesh served his time, had probation and paid a fine.
What do they think they’re going to do if they were to get away with this nonsense? Punish him a second time? The left is acting no different from Hitler’s Brown Shirts. These tactics are not only illegal, they’re shameful.
Completely willing to shred our constitution simply because they’re pissed that Dinesh was pardoned by the President. Only another example proving their lack of respect for the constitution, unless it’s a corrupt Democrat pleading the 5th of course. Even the idiots at Slate magazine published a piece “The pardon of Dinesh D’Souza shows how far the racist fringe has risen“. Really? Slate was already a joke in regards to real journalism, but this is a whole new level of ridiculousness. This has nothing to do with racism, last I checked Dinesh is a proud American whom is of Indian descent. How in the hell is President Trump pardoning him in any way racist?
We will have to sit back and wait to see what comes of this if anything. But the AG of New York trying to rid a constitutional protection in double jeopardy, and referring to it as a “loophole” only shows the lengths of what the fringe left is willing to do to go after conservatives as well as anyone Donald Trump backs. Dinesh is handling this very well, and rightfully so is speaking out about it so everyone understands he is simply being targeted, again.
As a nation, held in check by our constitution. We absolutely can not tolerate this nonsensical behavior shown by the fringe left. AG Underwood speaks of thwarting justice and undermining the law? She is certainly the pot calling the kettle black.
