THE UNDERCURRENT LAUNCHES PROJECTVERITAS.EXPOSED
WASHINGTON—Today, The Undercurrent is launching a new website with 150 profiles of operatives and close associates of James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, to serve as a research resource for individual and organizational targets of Project Veritas, lawyers representing the victims, and the media.
The research also covers litigation history, fundraising, the ties between Veritas operatives and the Trump administration, and perhaps most importantly, the details of operations involving the embedding of Veritas operatives onto Democratic political campaigns.
“James O’Keefe has shown himself to be an agent of Donald Trump,” said Undercurrent Executive Producer Lauren Windsor. “Trump's foundation donated $20,000 to O’Keefe in 2015, and O’Keefe proceeded to target Trump’s Democratic rivals for the presidency, embedding operatives within both the Sanders and Clinton campaigns. O’Keefe’s schemes conveniently fabricated ammunition for Trump talking points on voter fraud, violence at Trump rallies, and the 'fake news' media. This is political espionage and it's a major threat to election integrity.”
The Undercurrent is produced by Lauren Windsor and sponsored by American Family Voices. In 2016, Project Veritas operatives infiltrated Democracy Partners, an affiliated organization with which we share an office. In the aftermath, we launched an investigation into what happened in order to preserve evidence for litigation and to prevent others in the progressive movement from falling prey to Veritas schemes. The fruits of that investigation yielded ProjectVeritas.Exposed.
