President Donald Trump, according to James O’Keefe, the man behind Project Veritas, asked about breaking into Columbia University to illegally obtain former President Obama’s hermetic college records.
CNN verified his comment and several media outlets have reported on it.
Here’s an account of the events:
“Donald Trump asked James O’Keefe, the controversial regressive filmmaker, if he could “get inside” Columbia University and obtain President Obama’s hermetic college records, according to a thoroughfare in O’Keefe’s stirring book, a duplicate of which was reviewed by CNN…
According to O’Keefe, Trump “suspected Obama had presented himself as a unfamiliar tyro on focus materials to palliate his way into New York’s Columbia University, maybe even Harvard too, and maybe picked up a few scholarships along the way.”
O’Keefe wrote that during the assembly Trump suggested O’Keefe penetrate Columbia and obtain the hermetic records: “‘Nobody else can get this information,’” O’Keefe quoted Trump as saying. “‘Do you consider you could get inside Columbia?’”
When O’Keefe told Trump that this was out of his “link of work,” Trump reportedly shook his palm and whispered “Do Columbia” into his ear.
While the mangle in never happened, that still doesn’t boot the fact that Trump tried to arrange it.
