President Trump has been making headlines recently after he met with numerous people to discuss prison reform and sentencing. He also discussed pardons of people who could potentially have their criminal sentences dismissed.
President Trump met with Kim Kardashian to discuss the topics. She has been openly fighting for a pardon of a woman who is convicted of first-time drug offenses. The President was also reported to be considering pardoning Martha Stewart.
However, he has decided to pardon one person for sure. He announced the major move on Twitter, in true Trump fashion.
"Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!" he wrote.
"The decision sent shockwaves through the political world — D’Souza has for decades thrived as an incendiary mouthpiece for a hardline fringe faction of the American right. He was convicted in 2014 of making illegal campaign donations to a New York Republican and sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house, and a fine of $30,000," reported Time.
Other Republican leaders praised President Trump or the move. Some have even said that Dinesh was a powerful voice for freedom.
