Trump also told reporters accompanying him to Texas that no one asked him to pardon D'Souza, whose case had become a cause in conservative circles. Legal observers also have suggested that the pardons could amount to a signal from the president to associates implicated in the Russian Federation probe that he would consider pardoning them.

"He's not my party". Trump said she was "unfairly treated" and "used to be my biggest fan in the world".

Blagojevich's wife, Patti, subsequently said on Twitter that she plans an appearance on Fox News this evening.

"The letter is so mean-spirited and reckless that I nearly can't believe my longtime friend Donald Trump wrote it", Stewart shot back at the time. "From the beginning, we've eagerly awaited the day when Rod could come back home where he belongs, and we continue to pray our family will be made whole again soon".

Trump has issued five pardons as president.

If Trump goes ahead with his plans, it actually would be a fair shake for Blagojevich, whose lawyer, Leonard Goodman, is an investor in our newspaper.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood on Thursday repeated her office's call on lawmakers to change state law in order to ensure individuals pardoned by President Donald Trump could still face legal consequences. "What they did to him was frightful".

Conservative commentator and best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza exits the Manhattan Federal Courthouse after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations in 2014.

He pleaded guilty to giving $20,000 to NY politician Wendy Long and was sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house and paid a $30,000 fine.

In the statement, D'Souza acknowledged he was violating the law.

"Trump's action sends yet another risky signal that he will abuse his power to protect those who would subvert the rule of law, including the laws that protect the integrity of our democracy from corruption", Flynn said.

Trump has pardoned other notable conservatives convicted of various offenses.

The 1913 conviction of Johnson, who was America's first black heavyweight boxing champion, has always been considered an egregious case of a racially tinged prosecution. He also investigated unfounded claims, supported by Trump, questioning Obama's citizenship.

Lauren Kaeseberg tells The Associated Press the sentence was too harsh.

D'Souza also put forward, without evidence, that his conviction was a retaliation by the Obama administration for his movie, 2016: Obama's America, a film advertised as "The movie the White House doesn't want you to see".

The pardon nearly immediately came under fire from the left. Trump is sending a counter-message.

"So it just sends a message that the president is going to act outside the normal bounds of how we go about giving these kind of pardons", he said.

"The president's ad hoc use of the pardon power is concerning enough".

Both cases prompted critics to accuse Trump of abusing his pardoning power.
