CNN director admits the network faked the Matt Gaetz coverage because rep is ‘problem for Democrats’
VIDEOKINGS — James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released new secretly recorded footage of CNN director Charles Chester admitting that the network is running a smear campaign to hurt Republican Representative Matt Gaetz – describing him as a “problem” capable of causing “hiccups” in the passing of laws.
“If the agenda, say, is to get, like, Matt Gaetz right now, he’s like this Republican,” Chester began. “He’s a problem for the Democratic Party because he’s so conservative, right? And he can cause a lot of hiccups in passing of laws and whatnot. So, it would be great for the Democratic Party to get him out. So we’re going to keep running those stories to keep hurting him. And just like, you know, if we keep pushing that, it’s helping us.”
Chester also said he would be “OK” with it if Biden died, allowing Vice President Kamala Harris to ascend to the presidency.
“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, ‘You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. “And I’m like, ‘He’s not going to f*cking die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b*tch in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f*cking real, and better than what we got regardless.”
