Project Veritas' James O'Keefe teases Sanders bombshell shortly after senator's Twitter exchange with Trump
After President Donald Trump mocked Bernie Sanders in a tweet about his surge in the polls for the Democratic presidential nomination, the Vermont senator had a clever response for the veiled attack. But then O'Keefe chimed in.
Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe revealed on Sunday he will be releasing the ‘first bombshell tape’ of the 2020 election this week.
After President Donald Trump mocked Bernie Sanders in a tweet about his surge in the polls for the Democratic presidential nomination, the Vermont senator had a clever response for the veiled attack.
It means you’re going to lose. https://t.co/CVBKoKq8DT— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) January 12, 2020
But then O'Keefe chimed in, teasing that his organization was going to drop something big on Sanders.
“You aren’t going to want to miss what we expose in 2020,” the whistleblower said, reminding the American populace that his undercover sting operations had exposed “bird-dogging” and a series of other schemes some Democrats cooked up to instigate fights at Trump’s rallies in 2016.
In a teaser for his first undercover bombshell video of the year, O'Keefe hinted he would expose several 2020 Democrats -- and Bernie Sanders seems to be the first target per his vignette. James is seen in the teaser reading the classic Gulag Archipelago by famed Soviet dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn. The book is a three-volume non-fiction series that gives a glimpse into the life in a Soviet gulag (a forced labor camp).
The video also shows a whiteboard listing both previous and upcoming exposes scheduled by Project Veritas. (The future exposes were, of course, blurred for the camera save for one titled "B.S. Part I").
Considering there are already several videos across the internet about Bernie and his infamous trip to the Soviet Union as well as some radical statements he had made in the past, this one sure seems to be promising.
According to USA Today, Sanders is leading or tied in the first two primary states -- Iowa and New Hampshire -- against Joe Biden. This means his campaign has gained considerable steam and could catch a good momentum in the days to come. Some are positing the theory that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be trying to keep Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) off the campaign trail in a bid to help Biden. However, it's mere speculation at this point.
It is now widely known that the Democratic establishment tried to rig the 2016 elections against Sanders to make Hillary Clinton the Democratic presidential nominee, and this could be the reiteration of a similar plot. Speaking to Politico, Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina warned that if Sanders became the Democratic nominee, the party would definitely struggle during the national elections.
“If I were a campaign manager for Donald Trump and I look at the field, I would very much want to run against Bernie Sanders,” Messina said. “I think the contrast is the best. He can say, ‘I’m a business guy, the economy’s good and this guy’s a socialist.’ I think that contrast for Trump is likely one that he’d be excited about in a way that he wouldn’t be as excited about Biden or potentially Mayor Pete or some of the more Midwestern moderate candidates.”
Coming back to the teaser, a Project Veritas journalist is heard in footage asking an unidentified individual, “So, if Trump gets re-elected, what?"
“F*cking cities burn,” the person, possibly from Bernie's camp, responds.
That said, Project Veritas is set to release the undercover videos on their website Expose2020.com this week, with the first video scheduled to drop Tuesday, January 14 at 12 noon ET.
