D'Souza was indicted in January on charges of violating campaign finance laws. Prosecutors have accused him of using straw donors to funnel $20,000 to the Senate campaign of Republican Wendy Long, who challenged Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand (D-NY) in 2012. D'Souza has since maintained his innocence, and his attorney has argued that D'Souza was targeted because of his criticisms of President Obama.
