In secretly recorded video clips released by Project Veritas on Tuesday, a CNN employee admitted his network worked to get then-President Donald Trump out of office during the 2020 presidential election.

The heavily edited composite video centers exclusively on CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester—on seemingly separate occasions—saying on camera that the cable network tried to get then-candidate Joe Biden elected.

“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it, and I 100% believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out […] I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that,” Chester said to someone off camera during one instance shown by Project Veritas.

Other statements made by Chester throughout the video include but are not limited to:

  • “We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric.”
  • “It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be for climate change awareness.”

Following Project Veritas posting the Chester video to Twitter at noon, “#ExposeCNN” was trending on the social media site by the late afternoon on Thursday.

Conservatives as influential as Donald Trump Jr. were employing the hashtag in response to the Project Veritas report.

“CNN is propaganda. Pass it on,” Trump Jr. tweeted, followed by the hashtag.

Embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) also joined in on the online furor, simply writing “Preach!” when retweeting Trump Jr.’s post.

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
