Maybe it's time to revisit the debate on limiting presidential pardon powers

President Trump was the subject of controversy again this week with his issuance of a controversial pardon to conservative commentator, Dinesh D’Souza. He also teased the idea of clemency for Martha Stewart, along with a potential sentence commutation for former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

D’Souza had pled guilty to and been convicted in Manhattan federal court of violating federal campaign election law and was sentenced to five years of probation for his fraud. D’Souza had been a frequent and unapologetic critic of former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
