Dinesh D'Souza Expected To Plead Guilty In Campaign Finance Case


D'Souza was charged in January with one count of making more than $10,000 of contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements. Prosecutors accused him of using straw donors to contribute $20,000 to the campaign of Wendy Long, a Republican attorney and a friend of D'Souza's who in 2012 lost to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

According to the Times, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan on Monday night sent out an advisory indicating that a hearing had been scheduled for Tuesday, "using language that typically indicates that a plea is expected to occur." That said, even with a deal in place, things can change at the last minute.
