Project Veritas aimed to take out Trump’s own Nat’l Security Advisor

NYT broke the story, but here’s a non-paywalled summary.

Quote

Project Veritas planned an ultimately unsuccessful undercover sting operation to try to oust former National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster as well as some FBI agents, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

...The idea to go undercover to get McMaster fired from the White House began after a November 2017 article in Buzzfeed News reported that McMaster referred to Trump as an "idiot," "dope," and someone with smarts on par with a kindergardener at a dinner in Washington, DC, The New York Times reported. (McMaster and others present at the event denied that he made such comments at the time).

... Project Veritas then devised a plot to have a woman go to the same place, a high-end Italian restaurant called Tosca, with a hidden camera to engage McMaster in conversation and share a few drinks with him in the hope to catch him saying something similarly disparaging about Trump.

Three-star general McMaster eventually got fed up with Trump and his shenanigans and left of his own accord. But the catfishing of sorts went on:

Project Veritas reportedly rented out an elaborate six-bedroom house in Georgetown that went for $10,000 a month as the headquarters for the failed operation and also hired women to go undercover on dates with FBI agents to secretly record them in the hopes that some would trash Trump on tape.

The women hired to bait FBI agents made fake dating app profiles, secretly brought reporting equipment to the dates, were given code names like "Tiger" and "Brazil," and were told to keep the location of the house top-secret at all costs.

Ooh la la! One tidbit I found humorous was that one of Chuck Grassley’s top senate staff members was involved in the whole shady thing, after she was asked to be by “someone she trusted”.

Really? Who was that? She “can’t remember”.

A somewhat more opinionated (and entertaining) take on the folks behind the curtains:

The Trump Camp Was Machiavelli Meets the Three Stooges

...in which the “deep state” is revealed, but turns out to be the same bunch of right-wing ratf*ckers.

O"Keefe has always been a clown but what I don't understand is why people keep hiring him. I suppose it's less about results than it is about the promise of results.
