If you're old enough to remember, Dinesh D'Souza was once considered something of a conservative luminary.

D'Souza pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign laws in 2014 and was convicted of a felony.

"Could it be that the organizer of the #Charlottesville rally is a left-wing fascist pretending to be a right-winger?" he said on Twitter.

Earlier this year D'Souza was denounced by CPAC after taunting victims of the Parkland massacre.

D'Souza has a long history of inflammatory remarks.

A judge rejected that defense, calling it "all hat, no cattle".

D'Souza pleaded guilty to using a "straw donor" to make the donation. He was president of The King's College in New York City from 2010 to 2012, his website says.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) welcomed the news, tweeting "Bravo!"

"Bravo! @realDonaldTrump Dinesh was the subject of a political prosecution, brazenly targeted by the Obama administration bc of his political views", Cruz said Thursday in a tweet. "And he's a powerful voice for freedom, systematically dismantling the lies of the Left-which is why they hate him".
