The postal service worker behind a Project Veritas viral video claiming his employer fraudulently post-dated mail-in ballots is fighting back against the government’s insistence that he recanted his story about the election fraud.
In a video posted to YouTube on Tuesday, the worker says that he did not recant his account of ballot tampering and election fraud by the United States Postal Service. The Washington Post was the first to announce that the accusations were reportedly false, citing unidentified sources who said the worker, identified as Richard Hopkins, recanted his allegations after being questioned by federal investigators.
Hopkins, a marine and combat veteran posted a video on YouTube forcefully denying he recanted his statements and asked the Washington Post to retract their story. Hopkins also announced that he would prove he did not recant Wednesday. Just a short time later, it became clear that he seemingly had the evidence to prove it.
Hopkins provided the Project Veritas team with a recording of the meeting with the USPS OIG investigators. They tell a completely different story than what the government is putting out.
While we will likely find out more about what happened during these interrogations, one thing is perfectly clear. Per the USPS investigator, the allegations of ballot tampering are being taken seriously, and both senators and the Department of Justice are involved.
