Trump will pardon conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted for campaign finance violation

MSM media will go gonzo in 3......2........1

;-)


D'Souza served his time at the halfway house and (to my understanding) has (or had before the pardon) about a year of probation left.
I would presume that with the pardon, his probation term will end.

So....it was a politician that reacted to the D’Souza pardon:

NY AG Wants Law Changed Due To D’Souza Pardon


TAYLOR MILLARD
Posted at 7:01 pm on June 2, 2018

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood is pretty rankled by President Donald Trump’s pardon of Dinesh D’Souza. Underwood is so irritated, she’s calling for New York to change what she’s calling the “double jeopardy loophole” to prevent things like this from happening again.

“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. By pardoning Dinesh D’Souza, President Trump is undermining the rule of law by pardoning a political supporter who is an unapologetic convicted felon. First it was Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Then it was Scooter Libby. Now it’s Dinesh D’Souza. We can’t afford to wait to see who will be next. Lawmakers must act now 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 if they violate New York law.”



She’s following the lead of former AG Eric Schneiderman, who fretted about a pardon controversy last year in a letter to state leaders.

The President’s power to pardon federal crimes is sweeping and subject to limited review by the other branches of government. Our country’s founders argued this power was “benign” and would be used by presidents with “scrupulousness and caution.”i Thus far, they have generally been right. Since the Nation’s founding, presidents have used this power sparingly, largely to do justice, rather than subvert it.

Yet recent reports indicate that the President may be considering issuing pardons that may impede criminal investigations. This is disturbing news, not only because it would undermine public confidence in the rule of law, but also because—due to a little-known feature of New York law that appears to be unique in its reach—a strategically-timed pardon could prevent individuals who may have violated our State’s laws from standing trial in our courts as well…


Because pardons have never, ever, ever, in the history of this country, been considered political. Ever (Roger Clinton and Mark Rich were unavailable for comment). It’s also important to note Arpaio and Libby were never charged in New York, so Underwood’s righteous indignation on the pardon issue is a little superfluous, but I could always be missing something.

Underwood is not complaining about the 5th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution but a New York law which doesn’t allow people to be tried twice for the same act or go to trial twice for “two offenses based upon the same act or criminal transaction.” Reason’s Jacob Sullum explains why New York passed the law in the first place.

According to the New York Court of Appeals, the state constitution’s ban on double jeopardy is no broader than the federal version, and the U.S. Supreme Court has said the Fifth Amendment does not preclude prosecuting the same person for the same actions in both state and federal courts. Although the underlying conduct may be identical, the Court says, the offenses are distinct because they are defined by “two sovereignties.”

To their credit, New York legislators recognized that the dual sovereignty doctrine is a license for injustice, allowing a defendant to be punished twice for the same crime or tried again after an acquittal. They therefore enacted a law that says “a person may not be separately prosecuted for two offenses based upon the same act or criminal transaction.” There are 12 exceptions to that rule, but none of them covers objectionable pardons by Donald Trump. That is the “double jeopardy loophole” Underwood has in mind.



Continued at above link

NY (Democratic) pols would have us believe what Trump did is wrong and that people should be allowed to be prosecuted twice for the same crime.

Those pols should remember that with time, government (that is the party in control) can change--even in New York.

You'd think that they would have learned that by now.

When I see Rosie O'Donnell being perp walked for doing worse then D'Souza did then she might have a bit more credibility. Or in the case of Rosie it might have to be perp waddled given the extra baggage that fat cow is carrying.

Democrats. Anti-constitutional, anti-american totalitarian turds.

I hope they continue to publicly spout their anti-liberty trash, such as those wishes to remove peoples' rights and protections against 'double jeopardy', along with all their other goals of tearing the Constitution apart. We'll see how that turns out at the ballot. ;)
