For a reductive group G, we study the Drinfeld–Gaitsgory functor of the category of conjugation-equivariant D-modules on G. We show that this functor is an equivalence of categories, and that it has a filtration with layers expressed via parabolic induction of parabolic restriction. We use this to provide a conceptual definition of the Deligne–Lusztig involution on the set of isomorphism classes of irreducible character D-modules, which was defined previously in Lusztig (Adv Math 57:266–315, 1985, §15).
