In this video, James O’Keefe discusses a letter he received from a lawyer who is representing failed Bernie Sander's Natonal Field Director Richard Pelletier (later promoted to Deputy Campaign Manager), who is threatening to sue Project Veritas. Pelletier is claiming that O'Keefe illegally recorded a phone conversation with Pelletier back in February of this year. The call was part of an investigation Project Veritas Action did that produced compelling evidence that the Sanders Campaign was clearly violating federal campaign election laws by using Australians who were paid by the Australian Labor Party. The story didn’t get much play in the mainstream U.S. media, but in Australia it was front-page news.  A New Hampshire State Representative filed a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission citing the PVA story. PVA is still waiting to hear from the FEC regarding the disposition of their investigation.
