James O'Keefe Tries To Sting Soros, Punks Himself Instead (Updated)

Some folks just never learn.
James O'Keefe Tries To Sting Soros, Punks Himself Instead (Updated)

Please do not be drinking anything when you read how master investigative reporter James O'Keefe managed to make himself look like a fool whilst trying to punk George Soros' Open Society Foundation.

Politico's Ken Vogel just tweeted this:

Here's the text in case the image isn't legible enough:

"I was hoping that in a meeting with the program specialist I would be able to get her to discuss the political organizations that the foundation is funding in Eastern Europe, specifically Poland. However, after I left her a voicemail, I forgot to hang up the phone. When I thought the phone call was finished, my team and I continued to discuss our plan to investigate the Open Society Foundation and certain agitprop groups in the United States, and meanwhile, all of this was being recorded on the specialist's voicemail. We talked about the hundred or so phone calls we'd be making to different targets throughout the world as well as some personal operational details. Personal conversation among co-workers not pertaining to the Soros Foundation may have been captured in this voicemail recording, which could have lasted up to 10 minutes. The Soros Foundation may have shared this recording with members of the media who may be publishing it soon."

And they entrust this guy with money. Amazing.

Update:

That excerpt was from an interview he gave Breitbart News, apparently. He also claims to have an infiltrator in Hillary Clinton's campaign.

We do have at least one full-time individual employed by Hillary Clinton at the upper echelons of her campaign, being exposed to all types of different things — voter registration, strategy, even working with people in other offices and other politicians that work with Hillary Clinton.
