Project Veritas’ latest video became a topic at Wednesday’s debate between our two presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton opened the door by condemning the violence during the Trump rallies. Trump threw it back on her as the source of the rioting.
We now know for certain from the video that Democrat operatives- paid political actors – were sent to the events to stir up anger and violence.
Politifact wrote too much was unknown to put it on their truth meter but they did confirm the comments in the video.
Using a hidden camera, investigative journalist James O’Keefe, filmed activist Zulema Rodriguez, among others who took credit for some of the violence at Trump events.
“So, [Aaron Black] and I did the Chicago Trump event where we shut down like all the yeah…” Rodriguez says in the video. Rodriguez also takes credit for an Arizona protest, also in March, that shut down a major highway outside a Trump event.
Rodriguez is especially controversial since she is a member of a super PAC. She is heard saying on the video, “I just had a call with the campaign and the DNC, every day at one o’clock” — that’s very illegal for a representative of a political action committee to do.
Additionally, The Daily Caller discovered that FEC filings indicated Rodriguez was paid by the Clinton campaign right around the time of the infamous Chicago, in which violent provocateurs managed to shut a Trump rally down.
She was paid $1,610.34 for “payroll” and $30 for an item listed as “phone. The payments are both dated Feb. 29, 2016, less than two weeks before the violence in Chicago. Those are the only payments Rodriguez has ever received from the Clinton campaign.
The Daily Caller reported that she could have been making “an empty boast”. We just don’t know at this point. It needs to be investigated.
It is clear is that the 2016 election has been a profitable one for Rodriguez. MoveOn.org Political Action gave her a $1,108.97 reimbursement for travel in May, and Stand Up For Ohio PAC gave her $17,500 as a consulting fee one month later. Both PACs are heavily influenced by MoveOn.org.
MoveOn is a hard-left organization funded by George Soros among other deep-pocketed leftists. The group originally supported Socialist Bernie Sanders by a margin of 78%. They are now fully behind Hillary Clinton.
Paid agitators have been at every violent event. MORE paid the Ferguson and other anti-police rioters and often bussed people into the towns to stir up trouble. That’s their GetOuTtheVote tactic.
