    I'm not sure that the pardon erases his status as a felon. But even if so, Dinesh is a vile human being.

    Actually, he is, because he was convicted. He is a pardoned felon. The conviction was pardoned, not vacated.

    Poor Scooter Libby, lied to cover up Cheney's misdeeds, gets dumped in with the likes of deplorables like Arpaio and D'Souza.

    Exactly the way I understand it. Joe Arpaio attempted to get his conviction vacated and a judge said no.

    So I believe that means Dinesh still cannot vote.

    Her donations were small time compared to D'Souzas, and made to several politicians. I doubt if you added them all up, they'd total what D'Souza contributed to one campaign. Apparently for prosecutory purposes, size does matter.

    Either they are not guilty of having committed any crimes, or the Republicans are just too damned stupid to prosecute an obvious criminal after 8 years of trying.

    Take your choice.

    He is still a felon, trump just let him off the hook with the instruction to go forth, and spin some more.

    Yes he is. He's merely a pardoned felon. According to Burdick, the acceptance of a pardon is an implied admission of guilt, even if the person receiving the pardon has not yet been prosecuted.

    Depends upon where he lives. Is he a US citizen? I don't really know.

    About that, I am not sure, since voting is a state issue rather than a federal one. The pardon should remove any federal disabilities, of course, but I would have to consult state law of his state (New York?) before I could comment on that.
