Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton held a small press gaggle on her campaign plane after Wednesday night’s final presidential debate in Las Vegas.
One reporter asked Clinton about the undercover videos released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas showing Democratic operatives apparently discussing ways to commit voter fraud and incite violence at Donald Trump rallies.
Clinton brushed off the question and said that she knew nothing about the reports, abruptly ending the press gaggle.
“I know nothing about this. I can’t deal with every one of his conspiracy theories,” Clinton said. “I hope you all have something to eat and drink on the way back to New York.”
The videos resulted in two Democratic operatives being dismissed from their jobs, NPRreported.
Project Veritas, which has carried out several damaging video sting operations, has posted several videos in recent days purporting to show Democratic operatives bragging about inciting violence at Trump’s campaign events, and appearing to detail how they could bus out-of-state supporters in to commit voter fraud.
“Once again Donald Trump was ahead of his times,” campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told Fox News Tuesday night. “He’s been talking about this for the last couple days.”
One of the operatives, Scott Foval, has been fired from his job at Americans United For Change, according to multiple news outlets.
The second, Robert Creamer, has said he’s stepping back from his position at Democracy Partners.
