Trump Pardons Conservative D’Souza; Weighs Leniency for Stewart and Blagojevich

(From BBC News)

President Donald Trump has issued a pardon to conservative writer Dinesh D’Souza, who was convicted in 2014 of violating campaign finance laws.

D’Souza, 57, was found guilty of an illegal $20,000 (£15,000) campaign contribution to a New York politician.

He was sentenced to five years of probation after admitting the crime.

Mr Trump also said he might pardon lifestyle guru Martha Stewart and commute former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich’s sentence.

This is Mr Trump’s fifth full pardon. Among his previous pardons are Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio – who is now running for the Senate – and former Bush White House aide Scooter Libby.
