Hilary Clinton’s presidential campaign has been thrown into turmoil this week after multiple hidden camera videos were released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas that exposes just how criminally corrupt her campaign really is.
The videos have caused various high-level Clinton operatives to resign. Now, Robert Creamer, a central subject of two recent James O’Keefe exposés, has resigned “from his responsibilities working with the campaign.”
I am unwilling to become a distraction to the important task of electing Hilary Clinton, and defeating Donald Trump in the upcoming election.
As a result I have indicated to the Democratic National Committee that I am stepping back from my responsibilities working with the Campaign.
Creamer went on to deny that he had done anything wrong, instead insisting that the “notorious right wing blogger O’Keefe” is mistaken:
I am enormously proud of the work we have done over the last months to sound the alarm about the danger Donald Trump would present to American democracy. Contrary to the outrageous claims of the notorious right wing blogger James O’Keefe, we have always adhered to the highest standards of transparency and legality in our work for the DNC.
Democracy Partners regards our nation’s election laws and the integrity of our democratic institutions with utmost seriousness. And we have only ever-engaged in legal and nonviolent methods to demonstrate how Donald Trump is unfit to be President. Period.
We regret the unprofessional and careless hypothetical conversations that were captured on hidden cameras of a temporary regional contractor for our firm, and he is no longer working with us. While, none of the schemes described in the conversations ever took place, these conversations do not at all reflect the values of Democracy Partners.
O’Keefe then released a video addressing Creamer’s resignation:

At the end of his resignation, Creamer attacked O’Keefe for his “dirty tricks” and claims that O’Keefe “uses methods that would make Richard Nixon and the Watergate burglars proud.” This is particularly ironic, since it is O’Keefe that has exposed Clinton’s team for their “dirty tricks.”
O’Keefe executed a plot that involved the use of trained operatives using false identifications, disguises and elaborate false covers to infiltrate our firm and other consulting firms, in order to steal campaign plans, and goad unsuspecting individuals into making careless statements on hidden cameras.
Those of us who are involved in political work because we believe deeply in progressive values are saddened that those on the right are using dirty tricks in order to pursue their political agenda rather than engage in an honest debate about ideas.
I will not aid Mr. O’Keefe’s despicable efforts to distract from the critical choice American voters face November 8th.
Breitbart released this brief statement about the original video:
In one hidden camera video, filmed at Creamer’s Washington, D.C. office, Creamer explains that Hillary Clinton is aware of “all” of his activities, directly or indirectly, and that Democracy Partners has a daily conference call with the Clinton campaign, as well as frequent calls with the White House.
Creamer’s organization’s bio states that he has been a “political organizer and strategist for over four decades” and that he began “his organizing career in 1970 working with Chicago’s Citizen Action Program (CAP), which had been organized by Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation.”
