Oscar-winning producer: Dinesh D’Souza being targeted by Obama administration
Mr. D’Souza, who directed “2016: Obama’s America,” a documentary sharply critical of the president, was indicted on charges of making illegal contributions to a 2012 Senate campaign. He pleaded not guilty and was released Friday on $500,000 bond.
“The worst thing that I think someone could think is that they could be put in a position to be intimidated by their own government,” he said. “I really believe that in this case with Dinesh that somebody is going to wake up and this is going to be dismissed.”
“Can you image the reaction if the Bush administration had went, gone and prosecuted Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn?” the Republican asked on “Face the Nation,” before Mr. Schieffer changed the subject.
“I want to take this progressive, leftist critique head on,” Mr. D’Souza says in the trailer. “I want to effectively answer and debunk it.”
The film is set for release on Independence Day.
