‘I DID NOT RECANT’: USPS Whistleblower Pushes Back On House Dems Who Claimed He Recanted Voter Fraud Allegation

The United States Postal Service worker in Pennsylvania that claimed he witnessed voter fraud has completely recanted his allegations, according to Democrats in the House Oversight Committee.

In a series of tweets, the committee said that whistleblower Richard Hopkins, who works at an Erie, Pennsylvania facility, initially claimed he saw his supervisor backdating voter ballots that would otherwise be rejected. Hopkins then included the claim in a sworn affidavit to a court, prompting an investigation.

“BREAKING NEWS: Erie, Pa. #USPS whistleblower completely RECANTED his allegations of a supervisor tampering with mail-in ballots after being questioned by investigators, according to IG,” the Democratic majority tweeted.

“Here are the facts: Richard Hopkins is a USPS employee in Erie, Pa. He signed a sworn affidavit with allegations of ballot tampering/fraud and went public through Project Veritas. #USPS IG began investigating last week,” the committee continued in a second tweet.

In a third post, the committee said Hopkins recanted when investigators interviewed him.

“#USPS IG investigators informed Committee staff today that they interviewed Hopkins on Friday, but that Hopkins RECANTED HIS ALLEGATIONS yesterday and did not explain why he signed a false affidavit.

According to Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe, however, Hopkins did not recant.

In a video uploaded to Twitter, Hopkins identifies himself as the USPS worker and says the Washington Post and other outlets that claim he recanted are false.

President Trump shared the video online, calling Hopkins “a brave patriot.”

“More & more people are stepping forward to expose this Rigged Election!” he added.

O’Keefe included another video with Hopkins and USPS Investigator Russell Strasser.
