A prosecutor says a Republican U.S. Senate candidate from New York told investigators that a conservative scholar and author lied to her about the source of campaign donations.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie Cohen made the disclosure Friday as Dinesh D'Souza pleaded not guilty to charges that he violated campaign finance laws. D'Souza is the creator of the documentary "2016: Obama's America."
He was released after his Manhattan court appearance on $500,000 bond. His travel is restricted to the United States.
