President Trump announced Thursday that he was granting a pardon to conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.
“Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!” the president tweeted.
Mr. D’Souza was convicted of making an illegal campaign contribution in 2014.
He pleaded guilty to giving $20,000 to New York politician Wendy Long and was sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house and paid a $30,000 fine.
Mr. D’Souza has nettled Democrats with films such as “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” and “2016: Obama’s America.”
