"He's worked this process through the White House counsel and felt that it was appropriate to pardon Dinesh D'Souza", Shah said.
Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitanosaid the reason Trump "correctly" said D'Souza was treated "unfairly" is that "historically this has not been treated as a criminal prosecution".
D'Souza ultimately admitted to donating tens of thousands of dollars to a U.S. Senate campaign, well above the individual contributions limit of $5,000, by funneling money to other people and donating in their names. This was more or less the thesis of his 2012 documentary, 2016: Obama's America, which proved immensely popular with some conservative audiences.
Preet Bharara, the USA attorney of the Southern District of NY who was sacked by President Trump, released a statement of the conviction.
President Donald Trumpannounced on Thursday that he will issue a full pardon to conservative activist Dinesh D'Souza. In an op-ed days later, D'Souza himself called for O'Donnell's arrest and prosecution if she violated campaign finance law like he did.
Dinesh D'souza has stirred controversy earlier for his comments about former US President Barack Obama.
A 1983 graduate of Dartmouth, D'Souza served as a policy analyst for the late President Ronald Reagan and as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
This is Trump's fifth pardon.
D'Souza allegedly coordinated donations to Long's campaign through friends and acquaintances.
The White House said in a statement that the president believed D'Souza was the "victim of selective prosecution for violations of campaign finance laws" and that he "accepted responsibility for his actions". The judge said D'Souza had shown the court no evidence that he was targeted. He was fined $30,000 and given a punishment of five years of probation, which would include eight months of living under supervision in a "community confinement centre".
Closing the loophole would prevent individuals who broke the law in NY from avoiding accountability.
