Project Veritas’ undercover sting videos exposing the anti-Trump Deep State within the federal bureaucracy is working. Government agencies are investigating and might well fire the subversives who admitted trying to sabotage the Trump administration, sometimes using illegal and possibly felonious means.
Viewers got an up-close view of the leftists who control the bureaucracy, and what tax dollars actually buy: illegal socialist activism against a duly-elected president.
And they also learned just what this president faces, day in, day out: A hard-core, anti-American “resistance” within the administration.
Three Videos, Four Subversives
After investigating the Deep State for a year, this past week Project Veritas released three short videos in which subversives frankly admit their nefarious activities, and two of them brag that supervisors, for all intents and purposes, can’t fire them.
In the first “Deep State Unmasked” video, a State Department employee admitted that he prepares e-mails and other material for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) when he is working for the agency, but sets them to send when the clock strikes quittin’ time.
“I have nothing to lose. It's impossible to fire federal employees.”
“I don’t leave a paper trail,” he said. Not that it matters, because “I’m a union member and all that good stuff.” And lax supervision, apparently, means he has a lot more “emotional bandwidth” to work for DSA on the taxpayers’ dime.
That employee, a lawyer told Project Veritas chieftain James O’Keefe, is violating the Hatch Act, which forbids political activity on the job. Federal employees are, in the argot of the bureaucracy, “hatched.” They are also violating federal laws that require honest, impartial work.
But that doesn’t matter for a leftist renegade at the Justice Department who admitted all manner of violations and possible crimes.
She and a gang of thugs harassed on DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a restaurant and staged a protest at a lobbyist’s home.
The employee, a paralegal, used Justice Department resources, and stalkers, to track the man’s movements. “I know that’s very creepy, but it was very useful,” she said, admitting that “we ran the license plate.”
The paralegal has also used the department’s LexisNexis account to research DSA harassment targets. LexisNexis is a very expensive research tool for which DSA does not have an account. So taxpayers provide it gratis.
But, the “paralegal” avers, “we can't really get fired.”
The second sting video also features a former employee of the Department of Health and Human Services who exploits leaks from subversives inside the massive, unconstitutional welfare agency, while the third (below) revealis an admitted communist at the Government Accountability Office who is trying to harm the Trump administration.
“We have a bunch of just communists,” he boasted. “We have some folks who are Trotskyists or Leninists.”
He said the federal government is riddled with DSA saboteurs, including some who work for government contractors. One of them has a top-secret clearance and works for the Department of Defense. “He’s very active in DSA,” the communist “auditor” said.
“No one knows I spent 6 hours yesterday doing social media for DSA,” he confessed, saying he works some 10 to 20 hours a week for the anti-American group when he is supposed to be working for GAO.
Admitting that “I break rules every day,” at least this fellow knows he can be fired. But the “movement,” he said, is more important than the job.
“I’m very good at slacking off at my job,” he said. “I’m doing DSA stuff.”
Happily, the agencies where these subversives work — State, Justice and GAO — are investigating.
“We take seriously any allegation of a violation of the Hatch Act and financial disclosure rules and are closely reviewing this matter,” the State Department said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox talker Laura Ingraham that such employees shouldn’t have jobs at State.
DOJ is going after the paralegal: “Department policy prohibits misuse of government resources to advance personal interests. We are looking into this immediately and have referred this matter to the Inspector General as well.”
GAO’s Inspector General is on the case there. The agency immediately moved against the communist in its ranks: “He has been removed from any ongoing GAO work and cut off from access to GAO equipment.”
HHS said its leaker(s) might be breaking the law: “Individuals who share sensitive information for their own personal gain or motives, hinder our mission at the department to enhance and protect the health and well-being of Americans. These alleged actions are not only unacceptable, but possibly illegal, and warrant a swift and thorough investigation.”
