Video: Clinton Camp Admits Paying Protesters to Incite Violence at Trump Rallies

Nick Kangadis | October 17, 2016

A new video in a series of releases by James O’Keefe’s organization, Project Veritas, reportedly shows members of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign staff organizing and even admitting to paying mentally ill people to cause violent situations at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s rallies.

This video was released after another Veritas video last week showed Democratic Party staff admitting that it was okay to rip up Republican voter registration forms.

At one point in the video, which contains strong language, the National Field Director for Americans United for Change Scott Foval said the following:

The campaign (Hillary Clinton) pays the DNC (Democratic National Committee), DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, the Foval Group executes the s**t on the ground.

According to the undercover investigative video, the founder of Democracy Partners Bob Creamer said, “Whenever Trump and Pence are gonna be we have events”:

Wherever Trump and Pence are gonna be we have events. And we have a whole team across the country that does that. Both consultants and people from the Democratic Party and the Democratic Party apparatus and people from the campaign, the Clinton campaign.

Foval further commented about getting around the legalities in communication between the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the consultants so the DNC can "plausibly deny" any connection:

The thing we have to watch is making sure there is a double blind between the actual campaign and the actual DNC and what we’re doing. There’s a double blind there. So they can plausibly deny that they knew anything about it.

What do they have to deny? Well, allegedly one of Foval’s jobs is to prompt the planted protestors at Trump rallies with how to engage Trump supporters in order to cause a scene.

“There’s a script of engagement. Sometimes the crazies [Trump supporters] bite and sometimes the crazies don’t bite,” said Foval.

Foval continued to expand into the methods in which the pretend protesters can incite Trump supporters:

When they’re outside the rally, the media will cover it no matter where it happens. They key is initiating the conflict by having leading conversations with people who are naturally psychotic.


I mean honestly, it is not hard to get some of these a**holes to pop off. It’s a matter of showing up, to want to get into the rally, in a Planned Parenthood t-shirt. Or, Trump is a Nazi, you know. You can message to draw them out, and draw them to punch you.

Aaron Black, who works for Creamer and Democracy Partners, is seen boasting in the video of one of the protests in Chicago that had to be cancelled after protesters incited a violent altercation with Trump supporters. Black and Creamer’s organization were allegedly behind the violence.

Black said:

So the Chicago protest when they shut all that, that was us. It was more him [Bob Creamer] than me, but none of this is supposed to come back to us, because we want it coming from the people, we don’t want it to come from the party.

While O’Keefe and his reporters give a few other examples of how Foval, Creamer, Black and more plant people at Republican rallies in order to cause chaos, the most damning comment came at around the 13:50 mark of the video.

Foval told the Project Veritas undercover reporter they pay "mentally ill people" "to do s**t":

No, I’m saying that we have mentally ill people that we pay to do shit, make no mistake. Over the last twenty years. I’ve paid off a few homeless guys to do crazy stuff, and I’ve also made sure they had a hotel.
