Inside the Project Veritas Plan to Steal the Election - 2020-08-03
For well over a year, Project Veritas has been secretly producing undercover stings designed to undermine the integrity of absentee and mail-in ballot counts—an endeavor codenamed "Diamond Dog," according to documents we have obtained. Diamond Dog began as only one facet of Project Veritas's 2020 rat-fucking strategy, but with the onset of the pandemic, which has made in-person voting a dicey proposition, it has since become one of the group's top-line action items.
The shift reflects the Republican Party's near-existential concerns about mail-in voting in November. Donald Trump has disingenuously railed against the practice numerous times over the past few months, betraying a deep anxiety. "Mail in ballots substantially increases the risk of crime and VOTER FRAUD!" he has tweeted. At other times he has claimed: "It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history"; "IT WILL ALSO LEAD TO THE END OF OUR GREAT REPUBLICAN PARTY"; and "SCAM!" Last week, he went so far as to suggest that the election should be delayed, saying that because of "Universal Mail-in Voting," the vote would be "INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT."
The purpose of Diamond Dog, as one source close to the organization put it, is "literally to get Trump reelected." This source, like other past and present Project Veritas employees who have talked to us for this article, expressed fear of reprisals from the group and would only speak under the condition of anonymity.
