Project Veritas 4: Robert Creamer's Illegal $20,000 Foreign Wire Transfer Caught On Tape

Tyler Durden's picture

Project Veritas has just released Part IV of it's multi-part series exposing numerous scandals surrounding the DNC and the Clinton campaign, including efforts to incite violence at Trump rallies and, at least what seems to be, illegal coordination between the DNC, Hillary For America and various Super PACs.

Part IV focuses on a $20,000 foreign donation made by an undercover Project Veritas journalist to Americans United for Change (AUFC).  Ironically, shortly after the $20k donation wire was released, the contributor's "niece" was offered an internship with Creamer's firm, Democracy Partners.

In the new video, Creamer says: “Every morning I am on a call at 10:30 that goes over the message being driven by the campaign headquarters … I am in this campaign mainly to deal with what earned media with television, radio, with earned media and social media, not with paid media, not with advertising.” He also mentions a conference call discussing a woman potentially coming forward to accuse Trump of inappropriate behavior.

Creamer, a seasoned Chicago activist who is married to Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), whose Republican opponent, Joan McCarthy Lasonde has called for her to resign over her husband’s activities, also talks about his work with Barack Obama, whom he says he has known since the 1980s, when Obama was a community organizer in Chicago: “He’s a pro, I’ve known the President since he was a community organizer in Chicago.”

Elsewhere, Creamer adds: “I do a lot of work with the White House on their issues, helping to run issue campaigns that they have been involved in. I mean, for immigration reform for the… the health care bill, for trying to make America more like Britain when it comes to gun violence issues.”

In the effort to prove the credibility of the undercover donor featured in the videos and to keep the investigation going, Project Veritas Action made the decision to donate twenty thousand dollars to Robert Creamer’s effort. Project Veritas Action had determined that the benefit of this investigation outweighed the cost. And it did.


“First thing, like I said, thank you for the proposal.  And I’d like to get the $20,000 across to you.  The second call I’m going to make here is to my money guy and he’s going to get in touch with you and auto wire the funds to you,” said the PVA journalist.


Creamer told the PVA journalist to send the money to Americans United for Change. Shortly after the money was released, the “donors” “niece” - another Project Veritas Action journalist - was offered an internship with Creamer.


In an effort to see how far Creamer would go with the promise of more money, another Project Veritas journalist posing as the donor’s money liaison requested a meeting with Creamer. During that meeting, Creamer spoke about connections he had with Obama and Clinton.

AUFC President, Brad Woodhouse, subsequently returned the money, after Project Veritas started to release their undercover videos, citing "concerns that it might have been an illegal foreign donation."  Oddly, Woodhouse was not terribly concerned about the "legality" of the donation when he chose to accept it a month prior.

In an unexpected twist, AUFC president Brad Woodhouse, the recipient of the $20,000, heard that Project Veritas Action was releasing undercover videos exposing AUFC’s activities.  He told a journalist that AUFC was going to return the twenty thousand dollars.  He said it was because they were concerned that it might have been an illegal foreign donation. Project Veritas Action was pleased but wondered why that hadn’t been a problem for the month that they had the money.


While the latest video focuses on the "$20,000 illegal foreign contribution" from an undercover Project Veritas journalist, the following comments from Robert Creamer were also rather intriguing in light of recent White House efforts to vehemently deny any connections between he and President Obama.

"Oh Barack Obama's was the best campaign in the history of American politics, I mean the second one, I mean the first was good too.  I was a consultant to both, the second one, was everything hit on every level and every aspect.


He's a pro.  I've known the President since he was a community organizer in Chicago.


I was just at and event with him in Chicago actually, on Friday last.  He is just as good as ever.  I do a lot of work with the White House on their issues.  Helping to run issued campaigns that they have been involved in.  I mean, for immigration reform for the...the health care bill...trying to make America more like Britain when it comes to gun violence issues."

Notice how some Republicans are outraged over Trump's words but ignore these serious criminal acts.


Sickening. I already told one of my Senators he is being voted out next election. Crooks. Corrupted beyond help.

So, from what I understand, this guy just recently "resigned".  There HAS to be a way of jailing this MF is all of this is legit.

Absolutely, the FBI would investigate and the DOJ would prosecute. I no longer view that as happening under this administration or with Paul Ryan as speaker.

A crucial question concerning Robert Creamer, General Consultant to Americans United for Change and Project Veritas infamy, is what is the connection between Creamer and the Obama Administration? 

The White House denied that President Obama has a friendship with a Democratic operative, yet Creamer visited the White House 342 times and according to White House logs, met with Obama 47 times.

In 1997, Creamer co-founded the Strategic Consulting Group, a political consulting firm that works with issue campaigns. His clients have included, Americans United for Change, and USAction. The Strategic Consulting Group is a political consulting firm that handles the cases of high-profile progressive organizations and political leaders.


It is owned by Robert Creamer and Linda Saucedo.


The current address listed on public filings for Strategic Consulting Group is:

350 W. Hubbard St.
Ste. 200

A quick Google search of that address also lists another company. MK Communications, Inc.


MK Communications in Chicago was founded by Marilyn Katz.


“Katz is a former activist with the Students for a Democratic Society who participated in 1968 and 1969 Chicago riots. She founded (in 1972) the New American Movement, an organization devoted to the teachings of the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci. Katz founded a public-relations firm in 1983 (MK Communications), which deals with many leftist clients as well as numerous City of Chicago accounts. One of the Chicago accounts was with the Chicago Transit Authority, at that time headed by Valerie Jarrett.

Today Katz is a friend, advisor, and political supporter of Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama, and Michelle Obama. Barack Obama initially met Katz through his first job at a law firm run by Judd Miner. From their common social circle, Katz was welcomed into the Obama 2008 presidential campaign.”


It is obvious that Creamer and Katz share a common office. They are also colleagues in Democracy Partners.


It is also true that Creamer visited the White House hundreds of times. Most likely to visit his friend Valerie Jarrett and/or President Obama. 


The White House cannot continue to deny there is a very real connection.




(There is ample evidence that Creamer, Katz, Jarrett and Obama have been friends for quite awhile. Chicago politics is very tight knit, yet vocal. I have only supplied limited DD concerning their relationships. Didn't have time to dig through everything.)

Any relation to Rita Katz?

Here is how you know there is no difference between the DEMS and the GOP. The silence. Not one GOP leader has come out condemning this obvious illegal voter fraud. They should be screaming from the highest parts of this land demanding the truth and justice. Instead? Nothing, nada , zip. Disgusting.

With such a fine example of well-planned, extensive network of corruption and conspiracy (which would have remained hidden if not for Wikileaks and Veritas), no one should have any doubt 9/11 was an inside job.

Hey yippee kiyay (Soon to be banned and will then use the next new name lonnng) , previously mofio then santafe then Aristotle of Greece then Gargoyle then bleu then oops then lance-a-lot then Loftie then toro. You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

Your MO is to post a provocative comment which SEEMS to be relevant but you have no interest in joining the discussion (and NEVER do) and your sole objective is to mislead readers into clicking on your falsified links to your BS site. That wastes everyones time is blatant SPAMMING.

Would appreciate regular ZH contributors please take a moment to help me in my campaign against this shithead and report yippee kiyay to with a request for an IP block to prevent multiple new accounts from being issued.

jeff montanye's picture

whatever the current name, the biblicism institute has much correct, in my view, discussion of the israeli corruption of the u.s.   to quote from the link that so inflames you:

"The heart of the US Government is Congress. It is full of Judases who have sold out their country to Israel.

from "Peace Not Apartheid“: (America) is just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for President or being elected President. And the same thing applies to governors, and U.S. Senators and Congress members,” explained former President Jimmy Carter.

That is why all American politicians, and especially Congressmen (except for a handful few), kowtow to AIPAC, its bribe money, its control of the corrupt Federal Reserve, and its treasonous attitude in favor of Israel above American interests. Whatever Israel wants, Israel gets.

As Pat Buchanan quipped, “Congress is Israeli-occupied territory.” A nice euphemism for saying that Modern-day Israel has taken over the American government, or that America has become a subservient country, an occupied nation, an Empire on a leash."

does any of that strike you as either false or off topic?

me neither.

SoilMyselfRotten's picture

Actually now that you mention it, with the incredible volume of e-mails and myriad other Wiki releases, you'd think there would be some reference in communications about 911 and the sham that it was

jeff montanye's picture

not really.  their focus is this election and the issues surrounding it of which 9-11 is not one, at least on the legacy media.

however it is percolating heavily on the alternative media with increasing support:


should trump be elected, i have hopes of a new investigation or two.  possibly with the assistance of russian intelligence.

should hillary be elected, i have hopes of busting the perps anyhow because of the truly passionate hatred that many u.s. citizens feel for hillary clinton, which she so roundly deserves.  she, with obama, are certainly part of the coverup if not the actual execution.

SoilMyselfRotten's picture

That could be why Hillary referenced them all being fitted for nooses, one can only hope.

defender1be's picture

I think there is a small difference, the GOP probably still some honor/shame left.

If it was reverse, the DEMS would be screaming there longs out.

jeff montanye's picture

where is the evidence of this honor/shame you see?

were the nominee bernie sanders i don't think the dnc would be screaming its longs or lungs out.

were the nominee someone less vetted than bernie (he did get to senator after representative so aipac had its chance), like, i don't know, trump maybe, running as the life long democrat he was until recently, you would hear those lovely summery crickets again.

which is actually because of this, and is also why the thieving left concentrates their activities in monority neighborhoods.

The Ron Paul people wouldn't let them get away with it even if they did.    Not after the near media black out even at the debates and what the Republicans did at the primary which was similar to what they did to Bernie delegates.

Yeah, we'd seen this movie before and could tell you how it was going to unfold.  The tell was the delegates the press told you Hillary had lined up even before the people voted in the primaries.

itsabruise's picture

Yep.  Or if the outcry gets too loud, they will simply open an investigation that goes no where and prosecutes no one as with Hillary's email and private server.  D and R are two sides of the same coin.  It really is us against all of them.  What is the solution?

Just what I was thinking...? If there is then that really would be a game changer.

You can't believe anything Obama or any other of these fucking degenerates has to say. It is incomprehensible how crooked these fuckers are and yet the FBI, DOJ and our elected officials (for the most part) from both sides of the aisle are looking the other way! I hope the motherfuckers in these videos have to spend the rest of their lives looking over their shoulders for a baseball bat coming their way. They all need to get the living shit kicked out of them every week for the rest of their lives for this shit, it's just disgusting.

This is a bullsh*t hatchet job of heavily and selectively edited video surruptitiously recorded by infiltrators working for propaganda artist James O’Keefe and Project Veritas - and it should be noted that multiple operatives involved in his entrapment scheme are current or former Breitbart News employees, the same Breitbart News helmed by Trump campaign CEO Stephen Bannon,

Is it?

Then WHERE are the threats of lawsuits?

WHERE are the MASS PROTESTATIONS by the Clintonestas?

The MSM media coming unglued, dismissing it as "fiction"?

Why did Creamer resign? Without as much as a whimper?


So the fuck what if they worked at Breitbart? That all you got?

Entrapment? LOL It's called INCRIMINATING.

No cupcake - this is all legit. NOT any "scheme".

If it was, then WHY did those asinine Donald Ducks show up? (and they did)

For every pissy "connection" you made, I can give you LOTS of connections to the C.I.A. mind-fuckers in the media, which is more governmentally incestual than a Kentucky commune.

They have more "operatives" than a Macy's switchboard at Christmas.

Propaganda?'s CLINTON and ALL the alphabets.

You've been here 4 years - looks like nothing has dented the stupid you flaunt.

Back to bed with you.

That's the ticket, attack the messenger not the message!  Don't you think we're on to your progaganda?  I don't care if the videos and emails were released by little men from Mars-the message is that corruption and collusion is rampant among these dishonable demoncratic dogs.

And on a personal note:  eat shit and die!

Communism just another word for Jewish rule.

They hate Trump because he symbolizes all they despise, THE AMERICAN DREAM, INDEPENDENCE FROM (((THEM)))

Yes Axelrod was friends with Katz and Creamer. Axelrod was mentored by a former SDS member, Don Rose. Rose had been radical since the 1940s when he joined Henry Wallace's communist controlled Progressive Party.

Chicago Activists Should Be Commended, Not Scolded, for Shutting Down Donald Trump’s Rally

Peaceful resistance doesn’t egg on Trump’s supporters—it forces them to back down.( REALLY MARILYN? YOU WORK WITH THOSE WHO WERE PAID TO EGG THEM ON, AKA BIRD DOGGING)

BY Marilyn Katz


Something strange is happening here, and it merits a serious discussion. In the week that has passed since Chicago shut up Trump, both the mainstream and other media have seen a rush of articles criticizing not Donald Trump but the protestors who shut his rally at the University of Illinois-Chicago down, defending Trump’s First Amendment rights but not those of those of the demonstrators.

Writers from David Moberg and Clancy Segal on the Left, to moderate Ron Grossman of the Chicago Tribune, to right-wing ideologue Charles Krauthammer strangely agree on one thing: that the anti-Trump demonstrations and “violence” will turn off American voters and move them into The Donald’s camp.

To buoy their arguments, they draw on what they believe are analogous situations: the election of Richard Nixon over Hubert Humphrey after the demonstrations of 1968 and, in the case of Grossman and Segal, events in Germany’s Weimar republic during the 1930s which they say led to (or at least hastened) the rise of Adolph Hitler.
