Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza said on Friday night that he had "rattled" President Barack Obama with his popular "2016" film and said that it remains to be seen whether a recent indictment against him for alleged campaign finance violations was a form of political payback.
In the interview with Fox News' conservative personality Sean Hannity, D'Souza said he is "determined to continue" his work despite the indictment and that he is "undeterred and marching full speed ahead."
When asked by Hannity if he felt like he was being targeted because he is a conservative, D'Souza did note that he is sure his movie got "under President Obama's skin."

"We know the film rattled him. We know the film upset him," he added. "Whether this is a kind of payback remains to be seen."
