Four years ago, conservative activist/filmmaker/whatever Dinesh D’Souza pleaded guilty to single count of using “straw donors” to evade limits to political campaigns. For reasons that are more than a little unclear to me, D’Souza donated the maximum to the senatorial campaign of Wendy Long (who?) as did his wife. He then asked his mistress and another person to do the same with the guarantee that he’d reimburse them. Somehow this caught the attention of Preet Bharara, the prosecutorial Jack Russell terrier who was US Attorney for the Southern District of New York and D’Souza ended up with eight months in a halfway house and five years probation.

Today, President Trump announced he was pardoning D’Souza.

I have no intention of defending D’Souza’s behavior beyond saying that if you are going to scoff laws, the one category I really don’t care that you scoff is campaign finance laws. I would also place even money on the proposition that had a similar figure in progressive politics done exactly the same thing, Preet Bharara would never have brought a criminal action against him or her.

What I think this action indicates is that Trump has decided that he is going to pardon Mike Flynn and some other people who have pleaded guilty in Mueller’s probe.

The D’Souza pardon is just checking the temperature and preparing the battlefield.
