Opinion: With his pardons, Trump is turning tool of mercy into sword of retribution

With his sixth use of clemency, President Trump is pardoning Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative author and filmmaker. In 2014, D’Souza pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws and received a sentence of five years of probation, including eight months of supervised living in a halfway house. With this grant, this President’s use of clemency is becoming clear. Trump seems to be employing the pardon power as much for retribution as for mercy — to lash out at his critics and reward his friends who are under attack.

As far too many victims know, most who perpetrate such criminal acts are almost never held accountable.
