Hillary Clinton friend and donor Amy Rao, hosted a fundraiser at her home in Palo Alto, California home in August. Wisconsin Senate candidate Russ Feingold was the guest of honor. Donations were $2,700 for the big-ticket donors to Feingold’s campaign, and $500 for less generous contributors. Most of the attendees were some of the most anti-gun people in America.
Self-described “guerilla journalist” James O’Keefe, who attended the event in disguise exposes Hillary Clinton’s plan to ban all guns through an executive order. The Project Veritas journalist spoke with former Senator Feingold and his donors about gun control. When asked what Hillary Clinton would do about the Second Amendment, Feingold said without hesitation, “Well, there might be an executive order.”
Ironically, U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold once declared himself “one of the true leaders in fighting for a greater right to bear arms.” However, the video, which was just released this week, shows Feingold seeming to take pleasure in the fact that Hillary Clinton would issue executive orders eroding the Second Amendment.
Both Clinton and Feingold continue to push the “gun show loophole” narrative despite the fact that there already are background checks on both internet and gun show sales of firearms. At the fundraiser, Rao told O’Keefe on camera that Hillary wants to ‘shut it down’, saying, “If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close the loopholes (to) get rid of assault weapons, she will rid being able to buy you know, unlimited bullets, she’s gonna make all that stop.”
Feingold told O’Keefe, “He (President Barack Obama) did some executive orders with the aspects of waiting periods. But what we all need to win is the Senate, have her (Clinton) there (in the White House), and then put pressure on the House. And we might win the House.” O’Keefe’s video highlights an Oct. 4, 2015 email by Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon indicating the presidential candidate is all in on unilateral gun-control measures.
O’Keefe has been accused of selective editing in the newly released video but he stands by the fact that people deserve an independent voice on this issue, and that’s what he provides. O’Keefe adds that he didn’t break any laws, that he attended the fundraiser legally. O’Keefe said, “Everyone in that room was against the Second Amendment so it may be a slight bit of him (Feingold) trying to appeal to those folks.”
