Listen: Federal Agents Try to Intimidate USPS Whistleblower Into Recanting Election Fraud Claim
By: Beth Baumann, Townhall, November 11, 2020:
On Thursday, United States Postal Service whistleblower Richard Hopkins, a carrier in Erie, Pennsylvania, came forward saying his supervisors were allegedly ordering carriers to backdate ballots that were received after Election Day. Once Hopkins’ bosses pieced together that he was the whistleblower, he was allegedly relieved of his duty. He then made his name and his face public.
He signed an affidavit shortly after, detailing what he heard from his superiors. That affidavit was provided to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and the Justice Department to launch an investigation.
Hopkins met with an agent from the USPS Inspector General’s office and recanted his story, according to tweets from Oversight Committee Democrats. He allegedly signed an affidavit saying that.
“BREAKING NEWS: Erie, Pa. #USPS whistleblower completely RECANTED his allegations of a supervisor tampering with mail-in ballots after being questioned by investigators, according to IG.” the Oversight Committee tweeted.
“Here are the facts: Richard Hopkins is a USPS employee in Erie, Pa. He signed a sworn affidavit with allegations of ballot tampering/fraud and went public through Project Veritas. #USPS IG began investigating last week.” They continued.
“#USPS IG investigators informed Committee staff today that they interviewed Hopkins on Friday, but that Hopkins RECANTED HIS ALLEGATIONS yesterday and did not explain why he signed a false affidavit.” they said.
But after meeting with USPS Office of the Inspector General Agent Russell Strasser, Hopkins met with Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe. He provided O’Keefe with a recording of the interview Hopkins allegedly had with the IG. The recordings are evident that federal agents were trying to coerce Hopkins into recanting his story.
“And so let me, let me make good on that promise right away, okay? This storm is getting crazy, right? It’s out of a lot of people’s control and so the reason they called me in is to try and harness that storm, try to reel it back in before it gets really crazy,” Strasser said during the interview. “Because we have senators involved. We have the Department of Justice involved. We have Trump’s lawyer’s team’s gotten ahold of me.”
Later on in the recording Strasser said he was “trying to twist” Hopkins.
Hopkins took to YouTube to call out The Washington Post for their story, saying he did not recant his story.
“At the very moment I’m looking at an article written by The Washington Post. It says that I ‘fabricated the allegations of ballot tampering.’ I’m here to say that I did not recant my statements,” Hopkins said. “That did not happen. It is not what happened.”
He called on WaPo to recant their story, saying it’s false.
