Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle’ To Discuss the Dinesh D’Souza Case
According to Dhillon:
It’s clear that information was hidden. He was treated very differently based on his political viewpoint. There is also the additional factor that Dinesh has mentioned that the prosecutor Preet Bharara has been known and was known at the time for going after high profile Indian American targets. He is prominent in the Indian American community himself. It’s important to remember that it’s not the Department of Convict-Whoever-You-Can-To-Help-Your-Friends, it’s the Department of Justice and prosecutors are supposed to exercise their discretion, and that discretion is exercised every day in not bringing convictions like this. One of the key facts here is the reason that [Dinesh] had to plead guilty was he was being threatened by the prosecutor with an additional five year sentence for obstruction of justice on top of the two years which is the penalty for the offense of less than $25,000.
What he is looking at right now is pardoning a couple of Democrats. You mentioned Lagojevich, who actually didn’t — there is no crime proven there. And Martha Stewart, you know, when you can’t get them on a substantive offense, which is what happened on the Martha Stewart case, you try to get them on this process crime, and it would absolutely be just for him to pardon her and others who have been unjustly witch hunted for the purposes of their own careers. Nobody today can doubt that James Comey and also Patrick Fitzgerald who is a two-timer there, with the Scooter Libby situation as well, acted in their own self interest and not in the interest of the country or certainly in the interest of justice. They should not be allowed to abuse their positions to do this, and I, and I think other democratic and other Americans would applaud the president for righting those wrongs. And I hope he does that.
