Project Veritas’ undercover video which showed a plot to disrupt the DeploraBall events at the Trump Inauguration has lead to an arrest. The video featured three members of the DC Anti-Fascist coalition plotting to deploy butyric acid stink-bombs into the ventilation of the National Press Club in Washington DC.
It was reported on Friday during the inauguration of Donald Trump that an arrest was made. According to the police report, “34-year-old Scott Ryan Charney (AKA Scott Green) of Northwest, DC, was arrested in the area of 14thand Newton Streets, Northwest, and charged with Conspiracy to Commit an Assault.”
We suspected for a time that Scott Green was an alias, due to a report from Fox40 that came out last year. The article states, “Green, who used an alias while speaking to FOX40 for safety, did not attend the protest.” It was only after the arrest report came out that we were able to tie Scott Charney to Scott Green through his LinkedIn account.
The Washington Times also reported that “police were looking for the two other men, identified as Luke Kuhn and Colin Dunn in the video, but officials said they have not been taken into custody.”
The DC Metro Police confirmed with Project Veritas legal representative Ben Barr that the undercover video was “very helpful.”
The DC police have offer the following regarding a possible reward: “Anyone who has information regarding this case should call the police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411. Crime Solvers of Washington, DC currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for a crime committed in the District of Columbia.”
UPDATE from Staff Report: DisruptJ20 spokesperson tweeted at Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe calling the police activity a “charade.”
