Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza, the man behind the film “2016: Obama’s America,” has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of making illegal contributions to a candidate for the U.S. Senate. According to Reuters:
According to an indictment made public on Thursday in federal court in Manhattan, D’Souza around August 2012 reimbursed people who he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the candidate’s campaign. The candidate was not named in the indictment.
Attempts to reach D’Souza and a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful.
D’Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made.
National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru would like America to know that he is not Dinesh D’Souza.
