USPS employee who claimed mail-in ballot tampering in PA recants allegations

"ERIE, Pa. (WBTW) — A United States Postal Service worker who made claims of mail-in ballot tampering in Pennsylvania — which Senator Lindsey Graham called for investigation into — recanted his allegations Monday.

The USPS employee, identified as Richard Hopkins, signed a sworn affidavit alleging ballot tampering and fraud. In the affidavit, the postal worker alleged that postal supervisory officials hatched a plan to backdate ballots mailed after the election.

The Oversight Committee said Hopkins was interviewed by investigators Friday and Monday recanted the allegations without saying why he signed a false affidavit. There is no word if Hopkins will face perjury charges"

Not saying the above is so… but right now, there is just so much smoke on all of this, it’s hard to know what to believe.

Though I can’t help but chuckle thinking about the look on Hopkins’ lawyer’s face when he first heard what his client had done, and then the stroke he must be having now that Project Veritas is releasing days-old stuff trying to make it look like Hopkins isn’t recanting.

Hmmm. So there are multiple outlets reporting that the USPS Worker recanted and shows that it was a lie. SO I went to Project Veritas twitter and the USPS Whistleblower doubled down. He did not recanted at all.

No he has not.

Fortunately, Old Major and Napoleon blocked the video from Twitter. Can’t have SNowball’s propaganda getting out.

You do realize he is described as a far-right activist because he outed PP for selling the body parts of unborn babies they had aborted?

As always, Seinfeld points the way for us in an almost prescient way.

Has he made a sworn declaration?

In an interview this week with federal agents, a Pennsylvania postal worker walked back his allegation that a supervisor had tampered with mailed ballots, saying he had made “assumptions” based on overheard snippets of conversation, according to an audio recording of the interview posted online Wednesday by activists who have championed his cause.

The two-hour recording shows that Richard Hopkins recanted claims he had made in a sworn affidavit that top Republicans cited over the weekend as potential evidence of widespread election irregularities and fraud.

The bolded section refers to a two hour audio recording made by Richard Hopkins surreptitiously at the request of Project Veritas. PV posted the raw footage online (on Youtube?). WP listened to it and found it showed no sign of coercion, that Hopkins was encouraged to get a lawyer and that he helped write the recantation of his initial accusations.

Audio recording shows Pa. postal worker recanting ballot-tampering claim is the Washington Post story posted Nov. 11 @ 10:39 pm. I do not know if anything has happened since then.

They’ve made a few secret recordings where I thought the setup lent to information that was more questionable. For a few recordings that they did concerning technology companies, their setup was to send women out on dates when men working at the companies. That alone had me wondering if the targets were exaggerating their power and importance in the hopes of impressing their date.

That was a classic.

Oh man, this really says it all. If this guy wasn’t with it enough to get a lawyer he definitely wasn’t aware of the can of worms he was getting into by lying about election fraud.

It seems to me that the truth is kinda in the middle on this one. He admitted to the investigators that his claim of ballot tampering was based on “snippets” of conversation that he overheard between other people. He admitted he has no actual knowledge of any ballot tampering. So he is “not recanting” in the sense that he still says he thinks he overheard “snippets” which lead him to believe that maybe someone was doing something. But he has recanted in the sense that he has admitted he has no actual evidence of any wrongdoing.

How many cases have there been concerning this election that were not built on hearsay and conjecture?
