"He nearly had a heart attack", Trump said.

D'Souza, of San Diego, originally claimed that he was singled out for prosecution because of his views opposing former President Barack Obama.

White House spokesman Raj Shah denied that this pardon was an effort by Trump to send a message to political allies wrapped up in the Russian Federation investigation. Ted Cruz, among others, personally lobbied him to consider doing so.

Former US attorney Preet Bharara defended D'Souza's conviction on Thursday.

And MSNBC host Chris Hayes pointed out D'Souza parrots the same "vile, antisemitic" rhetoric as former ABC star Roseanne Barr. The judge said D'Souza had shown the court no evidence that he was targeted.

"President Trump's latest pardon makes crystal clear his willingness to use his pardon power to thwart the cause of justice, rather than advance it", Underwood said in a statement. He added that "plenty of other politicians could have said a lot worse". He was fined $30,000 and given a punishment of five years of probation, which would include eight months of living under supervision in a "community confinement centre".

Solo Launches to $148 Million Worldwide
As it turns out, an intended franchise with the title Solo may have to be just that-a solo , one-and-done affair. The movie falls in the same spot for Metacritic scores , though Rogue One places just slightly above Solo there.

"Dinesh D'Souza was convicted of one of the crimes Michael Cohen is under investigation for, campaign finance fraud", Joyce Vance, a former US attorney, tweeted. "I deeply regret my conduct". "Can you image the reaction if the Bush administration had went, gone and prosecuted Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn?". He also once argued that Adolf Hitler was not "anti-gay".

D'Souza told Fox News that Trump called him on Wednesday to tell him he would be pardoned. The President is handing these things out like political party favors.

Who is Dinesh D'Souza?

In April, Trump pardoned Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who was chief of staff to former Vice President Dick Cheney and was convicted in 2007 of lying in an investigation into the unmasking of a Central Intelligence Agency agent.

In the past, the Office of the Pardon Attorney has assisted the White House on clemency petitions - though it is not constitutionally required.

"Obama's political prosecution null and void", she added. D'Souza pled guilty in May 2014, but did not face prison time. The career prosecutors and agents did their job. He was president of The King's College in New York City from 2010 to 2012, according to his website. Most pardons are merciful.
