Video purports to show Democratic operatives discussing inciting violence at Trump rallies


A new undercover video by conservative activist James O'Keefe with Project Veritas Action purportedly shows Democratic operatives discussing inciting violence at Donald Trump rallies.

The video shows Scott Foval, a political consultant with the group Americans United for Change, talking about what he calls "conflict engagement" in the lines at Trump rallies.

In the video, Foval appears to state he has volunteers and professional protesters who will initiate conflicts at rallies.

A conservative activist leaked what he claims are secret recordings from inside CNN

What Foval said:

"The key is initiating the conflict by having leading conversations with people who are naturally psychotic. OK? 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, you know, Trump is a Nazi, you know. You can message to draw them out, and draw them to punch you."

O'Keefe controversies

Foval said in a statement through his attorney that the video shows "speculative conversations, where we attempted to correct a misguided idea put forth by O'Keefe and his cronies, and we did not take the bait."

The filmmaker activist O'Keefe is not without his own troubles. He's been accused of selective editing in previous projects. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in 2010 for entering a federal building under false pretenses during one of his undercover stings.
