DisruptJ20 Exposed

In order to "protest" the 2017 inauguration, many groups teamed up for an event they were calling #DisruptJ20. The plan of this umbrella organization was to turn the inauguration into a "clusterf*ck."

Project Veritas secretly embedded our journalists deep within DisruptJ20 to uncover their plots before they could put them into action. Some of their plans were so dangerous, we took an unprecedented measure and brought our footage to the FBI, the Secret Service, and the DC Metro Police, which led to an arrest. 

Part 1

Part I: Hidden-camera investigation exposes groups plotting violence at Trump inauguration

In this video, Project Veritas investigators uncover a group known as the DC Anti-fascist Coalition plotting to disrupt President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration by deploying butyric acid at the National Press Club during the Deploraball event scheduled for January 19th.

The meeting, captured on hidden camera, was held at Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza restaurant that is better known as the location of the Pizzagate controversy. The coalition members discuss the steps they would need to take to halt the Deploraball event. Project Veritas notified the FBI, Secret Service and DC Metro Police of the content of this video prior to its release.


Antifa Thugs ARRESTED

What we uncovered from this series was so egregious, we decided to bring our footage to the FBI, the Secret Service, and the DC Metro Police. They said that our footage was “very helpful” in identifying the individuals, and led to the arrests of Scott Charney, Paul Kuhn, and Colin Dunn who were featured in our video. In our video, Charney used the alias “Scott Green,” and Paul Kuhn identified himself as “Luke.”

Part 1: Response

James O’Keefe Responds to #DisruptJ20’s Statement

Upon the release of our first video, DisruptJ20 produced a statement claiming that “False plans were discussed [at the meeting]…They spoke of false plans in order to protect themselves, and did not discuss any real intentions.”
Shortly thereafter, Project Veritas released our own statement in response.

Part 2

Part II: NEW Investigation Uncovers Plots to Chain the Trains and Shut Down DC During Trump Inauguration

The latest Project Veritas video reveals DisruptJ20 plot to Chain Trains and Halt the DC Metro.

This video exposes the collusion between the various groups under the DisruptJ20 umbrella. The video shows that DJ20 is not simply a movement of fringe groups but instead a nefarious organization.


DisruptJ20 backs down
