Who is Dinesh D’Souza?

Trump to give 'full pardon' to Dinesh D'Souza

President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he will pardon conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance fraud. And in 2012, D'Souza absent-mindedly arranged $20,000 in illegal campaign contributions for a Republican Senate candidate who ultimately lost by more than 40 points - a mistake that any hard-working American could have made in a moment of inattention.

"In a tweet celebrating his pardon, D'Souza said "(President Barack) Obama & his stooges tried to extinguish my American dream & destroy my faith in America.

According to the White House press pool traveling on Air Force One, President Trump said that "he is considering pardoning or commuting the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Martha Stewart". D'Souza pleaded guilty to using a "straw donor" to make the donation.

Israeli PM says Iran should have no military presence in Syria
The territory is covered by a ceasefire agreement signed past year between the US, Russia and neighbouring Jordan. Israel is vehemently opposed to Iran maintaining a military presence in Syria, however.

On Thursday, D'Souza thanked Trump in Twitter posts that also slammed Bharara.

The acting NY A.G. told reporters that there is now an urgency to "close New York's double jeopardy loophole and ensure that anyone who evades federal justice by virtue of a politically expedient pardon can be held accountable". One Breitbart News story from 2015 compared his sentencing - he spent eight months in a halfway house and was required to attend counseling in lieu of jail - to Maoism.

Mumbai-born, D'Souza, 57, was convicted of making an illegal campaign contribution of $20,000 in 2014 to a NY politician.

Smith tallied 12 points and Tristan Thompson scored 10 for Cleveland who beat Boston 109-99 on Friday to force game seven. And with a trip to the NBA Finals at stake on Sunday, Tatum elevated his play with one of his best playoff scoring games.

The Justice Department that would imprison Mr. D'Souza for two years for giving unfair advantage to a friend's political campaign declined to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for threatening white voters with nightsticks at a Philadelphia polling place in 2008.

Trump pardoned Libby in April. "In light of these facts, the President has determined that Mr. D'Souza is fully worthy of this pardon", the statement said. He was president of The King's College in New York City from 2010 to 2012, according to his website.

D'Souza came in for criticism recently for a tweet mocking student survivors of the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

South and North Korean leaders in surprise meeting today
Trump later tweeted that the summit, if it does happen, will likely take place on June 12 in Singapore as originally planned. The leaders of the states have signed the Panmunjom Declaration for peace, prosperity and unity in the Korean Peninsula.
