Project Veritas has released two-hour-long audio of post office inspectors who harassed Richard Hopkins, the USPS whistleblower.
The WaPo posted an article claiming that Hopkins had recanted his previous claims. That is a story they could have only gotten from the postal inspectors. But, as it turns out, Hopkins did not recant his story at all.
Agent Russell Strasser of the post office inspector’s office, tried to coerce Hopkins into recanting but it didn’t work.
Coincidentally, Strasser runs an anti-Trump website where he trashes President Trump on a regular basis.

In the newly released recording, Agent Russell Strasser says that “I am trying to twist you a little bit.”
“We have senators involved. We have the Department of Justice involved. We have-” Strasser says.
“Hopkins interjects that Trump’s lawyers have also been in contact with him.
“I am not — I am actually. I am trying to twist you a little bit because in that, believe it or not, your mind will kick in,” Strasser says. “We like to control our mind. And when we do that, we can convince ourselves of a memory. But when you’re under a little bit of stress, which is what I’m doing to you purposely, your mind can be a little bit clearer. And we’re going to do a different exercise too, to make your mind a little bit clearer. So, this is all on purpose,” Strasser said.
Project Veritas on Wednesday afternoon released the raw and unedited audio.
Hopkins made the news when he claimed Postmaster Rob Weisenbach’s orders to backdate ballots to November 3rd in Erie, Pennsylvania. Those ballots were illegal since they were received after election day and should not have been counted.
They are now trying to discredit him in order to undercut his credibility but they didn’t know they were being recorded. Strasser was caught in the act, apparently expecting it to come down to his word versus Hopkins’.
