Dinesh D'Souza, recently pardoned by President Trump, called former SDNY U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara a "scumbag" in an interview with WMAL-AM host Steve Malzberg that aired on Saturday.
DINESH D'SOUZA: Trump's position was 'Dinesh, you got screwed. I'm in a position to fix that and I'm going to.' And that's how we left the conversation. He said: "I'm going to give you a full pardon. I'm going to clean your record so you can continue to be the great champion of liberty, of freedom in America that you have been all these years but now with a bigger voice." That was Trump's motive.
Preet Bharara, this was the prosecutor in my case, he was trying to convince my 20-something assistant to wear a hidden wire to entrap me into saying things that would put me away for many years. So, fortunately, to the kids' credit, he told them to shove it. This is the way they operate. They act as if they are dealing with, in my case, Al Capone and they are willing to use any kind of underhanded, gangsterish tactics themselves to put away their opponents.
