An undercover female journalist from Project Veritas attended a national conference for state attorney generals in New York City. While there, she met Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiruvendran Vignarajah, who attempted to lure the journalist to his hotel room. Vignargian, who is married, proceeded to disclose confidential information to the journalist, presumably in order to impress her.
The confidential information he disclosed has implications in a major Environmental Protection Agency case which has at least 44 states involved in the complex issue. This case “will determine the fate of President Obama’s signature climate change policy,” according to E & E News.
Vignarajah was filmed saying, “They [Maryland] are going to help out the EPA,” and continued with, “it would be really bad if someone found out before the middle of the week.”
Project Veritas legal experts say Vignarajah likely violated Maryland’s Rules of Professional Conduct (Rule 1.6(a)) by leaking information about his client, the state of Maryland, to the journalist.
From a hotel bed, he also disclosed that contrary to public beliefs, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh has no plans of running for governor. He also provided his opinion of the Second Amendment, stating that “we should ban guns altogether, period.”
Vignarajah also expressed some secretly held and very extreme views on the Second Amendment, as you will see in the video.
