Hillary’s covert operations against Trump

This is a transcript of the second video of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action (PVA) investigating the covert operations behind the Hillary campaign in particular and Democratic vote-stealing activities in general.

Given the nature of investigative journalism where the scene cannot be set, the video can be a bit abrupt and a bit difficult to understand the audio although there are captions on a lot of the frames. This piece puts together the complete drama that James O’Keefe is telling in this second video.

This video focuses mostly on Scott Foval, although we identify other players when they are speaking. In this video, Scott Foval’s lead affiliation is identified as People for the American Way, which was prior to his affiliation with Americans United for Change which was used in the first video.

Note I: These used to be called “Dirty Tricks.” Woodward and Bernstein would have made this look like Seven Days in May (you youngsters look it up).

Note II: There is no perfect organizational method for a production that is broken up – inevitably, no criticism – like this one. I have broken it up into sections divided by commentary by James O’Keefe or Project Veritas Action. Where each piece appears on the video – the time – is in the Video column.

Note III: The border lines of the table are left in to help the eye.

“They could invalidate…well, OK, let’s just say in theory if a major investigation came up, of major vote fraud that way, how would they prove it? And who would they charge?”

4:00

“Are they going to charge each individual of voter fraud? Or are they going to go after the facilitator for conspiracy, which they could prove? It’s one thing of all these people drive up in their personal cars. If there’s a bus involved? That changes the dynamic.”

4:18

“It’s the legality. Because you can prove conspiracy if there’s a bus. If there are cars, it’s much harder to prove.”

4:42

“If there’s enough money, you have people drive their POV’s (personally owned vehicles), or you have them drive rentals.”

“Well you can’t have them with Wisconsin license plates because rentals here…most of them don’t have Wisconsin license plates.”

“But, there’s this thing called used car auctions.”

“Used car auctions, the titles belong to some unknown company. They’re company cars.”

[PVA journalist: “And you know these are multiple “employers,” these are not just one “employer.”]

“So you use shells. Use shell companies. Cars come from one company; the paychecks come from another. There’s no bus involved, so you can’t prove that it’s en masse, so it doesn’t tip people off.”

So Bob Creamer comes up with a lot of these ideas. I work with Bob Creamer one to one all the time. I’m the white hat. Democracy Partners (Bob Creamer) is kind of the dark hat. I will probably end up being a partner there at some point, because our philosophy is actually the same.

“Yeah. With Wisconsin license plates. Absolutely.”

4:52

“Well you can’t have them with Wisconsin license plates because rentals here…most of them don’t have Wisconsin license plates.”

5:05

“But, there’s this thing called used car auctions.”

“Used car auctions, the titles belong to some unknown company. They’re company cars.”

[PVA journalist: “And you know these are multiple “employers,” these are not just one “employer.”]

5:12

“So you use shells. Use shell companies. Cars come from one company; the paychecks come from another. There’s no bus involved, so you can’t prove that it’s en masse, so it doesn’t tip people off.”

5:29

“When I do this, I think as an investigator first.”

“I used to do the investigations. A different method…I think backwards from how they would prosecute if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that.”

5:49

“If the car has a Wisconsin license plate and it’s owned by a third entity, then it’s much harder to prove that these people drove in from out-of-state. There’s no bus involved, so you can’t prove conspiracy.”

6:21

[PVA journalist: “And they would have to be looking for them in the first place.”]

“Oh, a bus is something when you’re not looking for when you are looking for a car.”

[PVA journalist: “Now, if we just had the canvassers logging the homes, they don’t even have to know why they’re doing it.”]

“Put a mark on it.”

[PVA journalist: “And say, this address…we have moved, but moves could mean someone else moved in.”

“And then take that data, and flip it out, and you give it to people, and you have people go vote in it. That’s brilliant. I love it.”

6:55

[PVA journalist: “So, you know…and it sort of depends upon, you know, how much…the canvassers don’t have to know why they’re…they just need to be told to do it.”]

“No, in fact you don’t want them to know.”

“The question is whether when you get caught by a reporter, does that matter? Because does that turn into an investigation or not? In this case, in this state, the answer is ‘no,’ because they don’t have any power to do anything.”

7:26

[PVA journalist: “So, this is maybe not stuff for the general, but stuff to maybe hold off until…”]

“No, I think you should do it for the general.”

“You have to do it in multiple states.”

“Honestly, the ripest environment to do it in? Two, within striking distance. Michigan, Indiana.”

So Bob Creamer comes up with a lot of these ideas. I work with Bob Creamer one to one all the time. I’m the white hat. Democracy Partners (Bob Creamer) is kind of the dark hat. I will probably end up being a partner there at some point, because our philosophy is actually the same.

Project Veritas Action (PVA) Commentary

“Bob Creamer founded Democracy Partners in 2011. He is the husband of Jan Schakowski, a Democratic Congresswoman from Chicago. And in 2005, he pled guilty on tax violations and bank fraud. He was convicted and sentenced to five months in prison and 11 months of house arrest.”

Bob Creamer: “Yeah.”

[PVA journalist: “So, let’s say I have business in side, say, Illinois or Michigan, and I hired people, and I had addresses for them, I could write them checks for those…I could use them as day laborers or whatever and use them and find my way around the voter ID, the registration laws for Hispanics.”]

---------------------

Bob Creamer: (Nods head.)

---------------------

[PVA journalist: “Umm, that’s one thing, actually that idea, when he gave it to me, it was like ‘that sounds like something we could register huge numbers of people that way.’ That kind of thing kind of stuck in my craw when he (you?) mentioned it to me.”]

[PVA journalist: “What he (their fictitious donor) wants in the simplest terms, wanting, was – he had this idea and Scott (Foval) made it seem possible, but said it was impossible to do now…essentially, getting a bunch of people on a bus, or whatever. Taking them around the country. They legally can vote. So they can vote. At the same time, they’re also getting work permits under a different name and again voting on behalf of people who cannot vote.”]
