The latest video from Project Veritas was released on Thursday showing Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State, first lady, and presidential candidate, repeatedly denying awareness of a legal defamation case centered around her.
Shirley Teter sued the investigative organization for defamation, and lost, back in 2019. Then she was ordered to pay their legal bills. She alleged that they had defamed her when they claimed that she was a plant at a Trump rally in the lead-up to the 2016 election. Teter denied being a plant, and sued. She lost, despite having 6 attorneys on hand to help her. She has since been ordered to pay Project Veritas' legal fees.
The allegation is that the group Democracy Partners had organized the operatives at Trump rallies, and that this was done on behalf of the Clinton campaign.
When Project Veritas reporters sought comment from Clinton on Shirley Teter being ordered to pay the organization’s legal costs from the a defamation suit, Clinton repeatedly denied knowing about Teter, Democracy Partners, or its former President Bob Creamer saying "I don’t understand that. I don’t know Bob Creamer."
Democracy Partners was formerly ran by Bob Creamer. The group is a political organization with ties to the Democratic Party that was exposed by Project Veritas for inciting violence at Trump campaign rallies.
After Project Veritas published its investigation, Creamer resigned, saying "I am unwilling to become a distraction to the important task of electing Hilary Clinton." Creamer was featured in that investigation saying that Clinton’s campaign is aware of the group's activities "through chain of command."
When pressed further, Clinton refused to comment if she would pay for Teter’s legal bills.
US District Judge Martin Reidinger overruled a decision last week by a court clerk to deny Project Veritas’ motion for Teter to pay legal costs questioning the basis of her claim that she was "indigent" and therefore could not afford the expenses.
Project Veritas added that the Judge also expressed surprise why a baseless lawsuit was brought by several "pro bono" attorneys from around the country, one of whom was without being asked said, "We’re not paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign or by the Democratic party or anything like that."
Following the outburst Judge Reidinger replied to the lawyer, "Mr. Sasser only raised more questions by his unsolicited statement specifically disclaiming that the lawsuit was being funded by the Clinton campaign or the Democratic Party."
