Controversial activist and videographer James O'Keefe released undercover videos today that he said reveal "strong evidence of criminality" on the part of leftist activists and Democrats. His website, Project Veritas Action, promises that today's videos are merely Part 1 of evidence that alleges that the Democratic National Committee incites violence at rallies in support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“The video documents violence at Trump rallies that is traced to the Clinton campaign and the DNC through a process called birddogging,” stated Veritas Action. “A shady coordinated communications chain between the DNC, Clinton Campaign, Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC (Priorities) and other organizations are revealed.”
Among the persons highlighted in the video are activists Cesar Vargas, Bob Creamer, Scott Foval, Aaron Black, and Zulema Rodriguez. In the opening two minutes of the video, undercover recordings capture one of the activists saying, "We have mentally ill people that we pay to do shit, make no mistake," while another said "I got a priest to cry on camera once." Yet another is heard to say, "Ya know, Brad and Bob and Lux and myself are all part of the old school method, where it doesn't matter what the friggin legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherf--ker."
On camera, O'Keefe says "There's a narrative that supporters at Trump rallies are violent and dangerous, looking to beat up protesters who don't agree with them." He said that his investigation of the Democrats and Clinton's campaign organization reveals a "very different story." Scott Foval, who serves as National Field Director of Americans United for Change, is seen in an undercover video saying "If you're there and you're protesting and you do these actions, you will be attacked at Trump rallies. That's what we want." The undercover journalist responded, "Oh, so that's part of the process, of getting, of eliciting the reaction, okay." Foval answered, "The whole point of it is that we know Trump's people will freak the f--k out, his team will freak out, and his supporters will lose their shit."
Foval is highlighted in the video as a former staffer at the liberal People for the American Way, which is funded by the Soros Foundation, who is now working for Americans United for Change. He also operates the Foval Group. O’Keefe characterizes him as one of the “dark operatives” of the Clinton campaign. Foval tells the undercover journalist that his organization is contracted directly by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign. Foval also reveals that he is contracted to Bob Creamer and the director of special events for the Clinton campaign and the DNC. “The campaign pays DNC,” explains Foval, “DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, the Foval Group goes and executes the shit on the ground."
