A USPS whistleblower demanded Tuesday night that The Washington Post retract a story that suggested he ‘recanted’ his claims regarding directions he was given by his Erie, PA postmaster to backdate ballots mailed after Election Day.
Richard Hopkins’s was cited by Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and Chairman of the Senate Judiciary, in a letter to the Justice Department demanding a federal investigation into the matter. Hopkins first appeared in “Guerrilla journalist” James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video on Twitter.
Shortly after Graham demanded an investigation, Department of Justice Attorney General William Barr authorized federal prosecutors to open a probe into the matter and investigate claims of irregularities and voter fraud.
According to unnamed sources in the Washington Post, Hopkins, had told investigators from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General “that the allegations were not true, and he signed an affidavit recanting his claims.”
Moreover, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee tweeted late Tuesday that the “whistleblower completely RECANTED.”
President Donald Trump retweeted the demand from Hopkins on Tuesday night saying a “brave patriot.”
“More & more people are stepping forward to expose this Rigged Election!”
Hopkins hinted that he would have more information for the public on Wednesday in the video he posted demanding the retraction from The Post.
“My name is Richard Hopkins, I am the postal employee who came out and whistle blew on the Erie PA postal service,” he said in the video. “I am right at this very moment looking at a article written by Washington Post, says that I fabricated the allegations of ballot tampering – I’m here to say that I did not ‘recant’ my statement, that did not happen, that is not what happened and you will find out tomorrow.”
Hopkins then went onto say that he would like the Post to ‘recant’ the story they wrote about him.
Depending on what Hopkins shares tomorrow, The Post better watch out. The majority of Americans have already lost faith in the media and using unnamed sources to ruin the reputation of a whistleblower would be the straw that breaks the camels back, if you ask me.

Biden’s Poor Polling and Harris’ Low Electability Rating Could Have Democrats Considering ‘Nuclear Option’
Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway
With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.
“Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.
Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”
The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.
Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.
One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”
The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
