    Scooter might have refused the pardon if he knew he was gonna get chucked in the Deplorable Basket with those guys.

    Even though he apparently is, not sure if this restores his voting or gun ownership rights.

    Born in Bombay, D'Souza came to the United States as an exchange student and graduated from Dartmouth College. He became a naturalized citizen in 1991.

    WASHINGTON — Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative author and filmmaker pardoned by President Trump, claimed victory on Friday over what he characterized as a political prosecution by the administration of President Barack Obama.

    In terms that evidently resonated with Mr. Trump, who is aggrieved about investigations that he blames on his predecessor, Mr. D’Souza presented himself as a victim of selective justice, hounded by Mr. Obama’s attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., and the United States attorney in New York, Preet Bharara, because he made a movie sharply critical of Mr. Obama.

    “What happened here is Obama and his team, Eric Holder, Preet Bharara in New York, these guys decided to make an example of me, and I think that the reason for this was Obama’s anger over my movie that I made about him,” Mr. D’Souza said on “Fox and Friends,” one of Mr. Trump’s favorite shows.

    “And so, this was a vindictive political hit that was kind of aimed at putting me out of business, essentially making — destroying my credibility, making it impossible for me to make movies, write books, and that since has failed. But it still left a cloud over me,” he added. “I would be a lifelong felon. I would never be able to vote and never have my full rights.”

    Oh - THIS is interesting. NY state may revisit their double jeopardy rule and come after Dopey Dinesh.

    Good idea - do that and a presidential pardon for Manafort, Jared, Stone or any of these other crooks will be meaningless

    As Ian said, it's a state issue. Even if he has lost those rights, he can afford to petition to have them returned. At least, I know that he could in Alabama. If someone can afford the legal fees, it's not really that difficult to regain rights lost due to a felony conviction.

    I think that their concern is centered more on people like Manafort, Flynn and Cohen.

    I remember when #TrumpCult thought the words "Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!" actually meant something. They were so cute at that age.

    What a pig.

    He's the perfect Republican hero. It seems that all of their heroes are criminals.
