James O’Keefe is back to hitting some homeruns with his undercover videos, but he might have gotten the president in trouble with a story he related in a book being released soon.
Donald Trump in 2013 asked James O’Keefe, the controversial conservative filmmaker, if he could “get inside” Columbia University and obtain President Obama’s sealed college records, according to a passage in O’Keefe’s forthcoming book, a copy of which was reviewed by CNN.
Oh boy. Makes you wonder what else Trump was willing to do to further his political interests…
According to O’Keefe, Trump “suspected Obama had presented himself as a foreign student on application materials to ease his way into New York’s Columbia University, maybe even Harvard too, and perhaps picked up a few scholarships along the way.”
O’Keefe wrote that during the 2013 meeting Trump suggested O’Keefe infiltrate Columbia and obtain the sealed records: “‘Nobody else can get this information,’” O’Keefe quoted Trump as saying. “‘Do you think you could get inside Columbia?’”
O’Keefe said he explained to Trump that the request did not fall into his “line of work,” and that he considered himself and his colleagues to be journalists, not “private eyes.”
But that didn’t seem to deter Trump. At the end of the meeting, O’Keefe wrote, “Trump shook my hand, encouraged me to keep up the good work, and half-whispered, ‘Do Columbia.’”
Liberals are going to freak out about this, screaming that it’s proof that he probably colluded with Russians, but notice what Trump is advocating here – he wants someone ELSE to do the dirty work so that he can benefit. Kinda like that time he asked the Russians to get Hillary emails, remember?
More and more smoke, but no one can find any fire…
