[VIDEO] Megyn Kelly’s Post-Guilty Plea Interview with Filmmaker Dinesh D’SouzaPosted: May 22, 2014
“It’s the issue of fair treatment. You know you don’t want to have a country where lady justice has one eye open and she winks at her friends and then gives the evil eye to her enemies.”
— Dinesh D’Souza
Megyn Kelly: It’s an end around the campaign finance laws.
Dinesh D’Souza: Yes. It’s an end around campaign finance law. I acknowledge responsibility. And I have — I did admit doing that from the beginning. But I did contest the issue of selective prosecution, why was I being — so, we made a motion before the judge on selective prosecution but in a ruling last week he said no you can’t bring that into the case. So what really happened is I was going into a trial with in a sense, no defense.
Megyn Kelly: Do you feel chilled at all from, you know, the kind of work you do, the kind of films you make now?
Dinesh D’Souza: Well, one thing, Megyn, I mean, this is been a bit of a scary process…
…But I will assure you that I am determined to forge ahead. I mean, I feel that I got a powerful message. The message of our film “America” that comes out in a month is indeed the issue of justice. Very often as conservatives we tout liberty, but the American founding, when you go back and read the Declaration of Independence, it’s an indictment of the injustice of the crown and liberty for the American founders was a solution to the problem of justice. So justice is at the center of our film.
Megyn Kelly: Did they scare you?
Dinesh D’Souza: Yes. It’s a scary thing to have the federal government that has a lot of power having you in its sights. And so I’m not — I mean it’s a process that I have been going through and I’m not done with it but it’s not going to deter me from speaking out on public issues I’ll tell you that.
