DNC and Clinton Campaign Caught in Alleged Illegal Activity

By Rebekah Chiasson

Democratic operative, Robert Creamer, stepped down from his position at Democracy Partner and Scott Foval was fired on October 18, just two days before the third and final presidential debate, due to the release of an undercover investigative video from James O’Keefe.

O’Keefe’s Veritas Project, a non-profit dedicated to uncovering dishonesty, corruption, waste and fraud in public and private cooperations, released its latest investigative video project claiming illegal activity from the Clinton campaign. MWCC student and Trump supporter, Jack Korman says, “Honestly, I don’t even care about Creamer and Foval, I am more worried that the mainstream media is barely covering it.”

Graduate of Rutger’s and UCLA, O’Keefe conducted investigations into ACORN, which ultimately led to the group’s demise. His investigations also played a part in Planned Parenthood’s Vice President being fired. O’Keefe is founder and President of Project Veritas with his latest work including the first of a four part undercover investigative video, “Rigging the Election: Video I,” which released Monday, October 17.

In O’Keefe’s latest tapes, Foval admits to being contracted directly with both the DNC and Hilary’s campaign. According to O’Keefe’s hidden camera in, “Rigging the Election: Video I,” Foval explained the chain of payment saying, “The campaign (Hillary Clinton) pays DNC (Democratic National Committee), DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, the Foval Group goes and executes the sh*t on the ground. The campaigns and the DNC cannot go near Priorities (Hillary’s super PAC), but I guanran-damn-tee you the people who run the Super PAC all talk to each other and we and a few other people are the hubs of that communication.”

Foval explained that Hilary and the DNC cannot communicate directly with Super PACs because that is illegal. Foval and Creamer’s jobs were essentially to act as the middle-man to make sure “they can plausibly deny that they knew anything about it,” according to Foval.

The video goes on to show Foval bragging about paying people to start riots at Donald Trump rallies. Trump’s rallies have been given a violent characteristic with article titles such as, “Protester attacked at Donald Trump rally,” from CNN and “Trump Supporter Strikes Protester as Trump Decries ‘Deplorables’ Comment” from NBC News. According to O’Keefe’s video, Foval explains how his company paid people to act as Trump supporters and start riots. According to the video, Foval said, “We have mentally ill people we pay to do sh*t, make no mistake.”

This story did get a brief mention in the Presidential Debate on October 19 when Trump asked, “I was wondering what happened with my rally in Chicago and other rallies where we had such violence.” His rally in Chicago was shut down due to violence, which O’Keefe claims was caused by Foval and Creamer’s paid posers.

Although it took NBC until October 20 to report about Foval’s story and both CNN and Fox over 24 hours, O’Keefe’s video blew up social media with over 2 million views on YouTube within the first day of release, according to the video’s YouTube statistics.

According to current research there has been no investigation by legal authorities for the alleged illegal behavior by Hilary’s campaign and the DNC claimed by O’Keefe
