Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 13, 2018

In his forthcoming book, James O'Keefe claims that Donald Trump attempted to persuade him to steal Barack Obama's records from Columbia University. He claims Trump was confident Obama was born in the US but suspected that Obama may have applied as a foreign student to help his chances of being accepted to the school and possibly qualify for some scholarships. O'Keefe tools Trump that wasn't his type of work. The White House did not respond to request for comment. Sam Nunberg confirmed that he setup up the meeting and that Columbia records were discussed but Nunberg did not believe Trump was requesting O'Keefe commit a crime.

It was already known that Trump funded O'Keefe's Project Veritas organization and that Project Veritas was caught attempting to hire people to agitated and protest at Trump's inauguration.

At the time of their meeting, O'Keefe had already been convicted of breaking in and attempting to bug the phones at Louisiana Governor Mary Landrieu's office.

Though it is certainly not beyond dumb donald to ask someone to do this, I would not believe a word that scum bag O'Keefe says.

both trump and O'keefe are liars and should not be believed

#4- agreed and if not for Nunberg confirming a big party of the story then I would have wrote off O'Keefe's claim.

Interesting to read how some are taking Keefe at his word while he is busy trying to drum up publicity for a book.

Nobody here is taking him at his word. But we know Trump funded O'Keefe and we saw Trump publicly ask Russia to commit a crime for him in 2016. It's not a great leap to believe he also asked O'Keefe to commit a crime.

I don't care what O'Keefe has to say about anything. Donald Trump is a more honest person and we all know, Donald Trump is the biggest liar to ever inhabit the WH.
