First installment of Project Veritas’ unmasking of the Deep State.
Project Veritas has released the first installment in an undercover video series unmasking the deep state. The video features a State Department employee, Stuart Karaffa, engaged in radical socialist political activity on the taxpayer’s dime, while advocating for government resistance. Stuart Karaffa is also a ranking member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (Metro DC DSA.) Stuart Karaffa is just the first federal government employee that Project Veritas has filmed in an undercover series unmasking the deep state. More video reports are to be released soon. Featured in this video are: Richard Manning of https://www.firetheswamp.com Bill Marshall of https://www.judicialwatch.org
Project Veritas has caught a State Department bureaucrat on hidden camera proclaiming he is part of the anti-Trump opposition and his job is to “resist everything” at “every level.”
Conservative activist and Veritas chief James O’Keefe released the video on Tuesday. He said it kicks off what he promises is wide exposure of the so-called “Deep State” actively working to defeat President Trump from within via media leaks and policy sabotage.
“What you are about to see is the hidden face of the resistance inside the executive branch of our government,” Mr. O’Keefe said.
His first target is Stuart Karaffa, a State employee and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. He sits at a restaurant table, sipping a drink and talking to two O’Keefe undercover agents.
Mr. Karaffa says on camera he wants to “f—k sh-t up.”
“I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees,” he says, as he talks about doing political work at his cubicle.
He says he waits until 5:30 p.m. to start sending out Democratic Socialists messages.
“… I’m careful about it. I don’t leave a paper trail, like I leave emails, and like any press sh-t that comes up I leave that until after 5:30,” he says. “But as soon as 5:31 hits, got my like draft messages ready to send out.”
Says Mr. O’Keefe, “Make no mistake. This guy is a radical.”
Mr. O’Keefe alleges that Mr. Karaffa is breaking federal law by conducting political activity in the workplace.
A State Department spokesperson said, “I can confirm that Stuart Karaffa is a Management and Program Analyst with the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations. We take seriously any allegation of a violation of the Hatch Act and financial disclosure rules and are closely reviewing this matter.”
“This is a personnel matter that we cannot comment on further at this time,” the spokesperson said.
Mr. Karaffa’s Twitter account protects his tweets. His profile reads:
“I’m an eight-year DC resident, Mount Pleasant Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (1D05), @demsocialists, union member, and advocate for equitable urban policy.”
