In a covert video recorded by Project Veritas, Adam Entous, National Security reporter for the Washington Post is heard to say of the perennial narrative of supposed collaboration between Donald Trump’s political organization and Russia: “There’s no evidence of that that I’ve seen so far.”
In a new video by the investigative group, two Washington Post employees are caught on hidden camera describing their biases while also acknowledging that the Trump-Russia collusion narrative is elusive. Washington Post reporter Entous says on tape: :
“But we really haven’t addressed… Our reporting has not taken us to a place where I would be able to say with any confidence that the result of it is going to be the president being guilty of being in cahoots with the Russians. There’s no evidence of that that I’ve seen so far.
“We’ve seen a lot of flirtation, if you will, between them but nothing that, in my opinion, would rank as actual collusion. Now that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist, it just means we haven’t found it yet. Or maybe it doesn’t exist.”
Entous says that he does “most of this reporting” on the Russian collusion narrative and admits that the investigation as a “f*cking crap shoot.”
Melissa McCullough, the Director of Newsroom Operations at the Post says of President Trump: “let’s just hope he doesn’t get re-elected in another three years.” Appearing to backtrack, McCullough adds, “I shouldn’t be saying these things because we don’t… We’re not supposed to really talk about that kind of stuff.”
James O’Keefe, who founded Project Veritas, said in a statement that he refuses to apologize to mainstream media, which he said is trying to destroy his organization: “Why? Because we hold them accountable. They see us as their enemy. Those who dwell within the media complex cannot abide us. It is not just their jobs they are worried about. It is their power.”
