USPS Whistleblower demands Washington Post retract story saying he recanted allegations of voter fraud

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.

CNN announces controversial presidential debate rules obviously intended to benefit Biden

CNN announced its several presidential debate rules over the weekend sparking controversy. The rules will govern the upcoming debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden on June 27. A

After Trump publicly stated he would debate the president “any time and any where” the Biden campaign agreed to a total of two debates that would be closely regulated. Not only did the administration demand a ban on audiences, it also approved CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash as its moderators. Breitbart reports Tapper is one of Trump’s sharpest critics.

CNN announced its own additional parameters on Saturday, which likely were done in partnership with the White House:

  • Two commercial breaks (Likely to benefit Biden)
  • Campaign staff will not be able to interact with their candidate during the break
  • No opening statements, two-minute closing statements
  • Two-minute answer shot clock, one minute for rebuttals
  • Mics will be muted “except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak” (Likely to benefit Biden)

CNN reported its rules:

The 90-minute debate will include two commercial breaks, according to the network, and campaign staff may not interact with their candidate during that time. Both candidates agreed to appear at a uniform podium, and their podium positions will be determined by a coin flip.

Microphones will be muted throughout the debate except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak. While no props or pre-written notes will be allowed on the stage, candidates will be given a pen, a pad of paper and a bottle of water.

Some aspects of the debate – including the absence of a studio audience – will be a departure from previous debates. But, as in the past, the moderators “will use all tools at their disposal to enforce timing and ensure a civilized discussion,” according to the network.

Breitbart reports that the President is planning to spend about a week preparing to debate Trump who has also requested Biden receive a drug test before the debates. The White House did not respond in May as to whether Biden intends to use performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the presidential debates.

Ron Klain, Biden’s former chief of staff who is going on vacation to help Biden prepare for the debates, did not respond to Politico Playbook’s request for comment about “whether any illegal substances are used as part of Klain’s debate prep.”
