President Trump recently announced his decision to pardon a conservative author and filmmaker.
On Twitter Thursday, the president said he intends to grant a full pardon to Dinesh D’Souza. He said D’Souza was treated very unfairly by the government.
Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!
The creator of films — including Hillary’s America — pleaded guilty in 2014 to making illegal campaign contributions to a U.S. Senate candidate.
He was convicted of a felony, and spent eight months in federal custody.
Some say D’Souza was unfairly targeted because he is a conservative.

This is the fifth pardon granted by President Trump since he took office.
