USPS whistleblower Richard Hopkins is said to have recanted his fraud allegations recently. This was a major victory for the liberals. You probably saw them celebrating on social media when the news came down. However, this is not the whole story….far from it. As it turns out, the Hopkins confession may have come under a bit of duress.
The lie that the Washington Post published should never have been shared with the rest of the world. Project Veritas decided to get to the bottom of things and the results are very interesting. Hopkins was not recanting because he had an interest in telling the truth. He was there because he was being forced to speak up by federal agents, who were attempting to coerce and intimidate him into talking.
We had a feeling that this was the case even before the Project Veritas footage came to light. James O’Keefe has the scoop, as usual. We are not sure what we would do without him. He has a way of confirming all of our most far-out conspiracy theories. Anyone who said that the confession was coerced was shouted down on social media when the news first hit the airwaves.
Now, what do these people have to say for themselves? “RECORDING: Federal agents “coerce” USPS whistleblower Hopkins to water down the story. Hopkins doubles down… Agent Strasser: “I am trying to twist you a little bit” “I am scaring you here”…” we have Senators involved…DOJ involved…reason they called me is to try to harness,” reads the tweet from O’Keefe.
The story first made waves when Hopkins confirmed Postmaster Rob Weisenbach’s orders to backdate ballots to November 3rd in Erie, Pennsylvania. This decision allowed late ballots to be accepted, with no problems. US law states that no ballot that is postmarked after Election Day should be accepted under any circumstances.
Agent Russell Strasser is one of the agents who is responsible for the coercion and the Project Veritas video is going to land him in hot water. “I am trying to twist you a little bit,” says the agent. “We have senators involved. We have the Department of Justice involved. We have-,” he says. Hopkins lets him know that he has already been in contact with Trump’s lawyers.
“I am not — I am actually. I am trying to twist you a little bit because in that, believe it or not, your mind will kick in,” Strasser says. “We like to control our mind. And when we do that, we can convince ourselves of a memory. But when you’re under a little bit of stress, which is what I’m doing to you purposely, your mind can be a little bit clearer. And we’re going to do a different exercise too, to make your mind a little bit clearer. So, this is all on purpose,” says the agent.
“BREAKING: Pennsylvania @USPS Whistleblower Richard Hopkins Goes Public; Confirms Federal Investigators Have Spoken With Him About Postmaster Rob Weisenbach’s Order To Backdate Ballots To November 3rd, 2020 #ExposeUSPS” reads the caption on O’Keefe’s video. It is an absolute must-see. Hopkins says that the claims about him recanting are merely fake news.
“The recordings are explosive evidence of retaliation, ‘scaring’ him,” O’Keefe says of the intimidation efforts. “Whistleblower has received a letter putting him on suspension without pay.” Even when Hopkins decided to contact the Washington Post and let them know that the story wasn’t true, they continued to run with the mainstream media narrative.
“They refuse to even talk to him or include his comment,” O’Keefe shared. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it? As soon as they had their phony-baloney confession from him, they tossed him to the side without so much as a second thought. James LaPorta, an Associated Press reporter, tried to take him to task. Wait until he sees the interview with the tearful combat veteran who was forced into this scheme. Be sure to check it out for yourself!
