James O’Keefe Busts ‘New York Times’ Video Editor Bashing Trump, Pretending to be Comey’s Godson

James O’Keefe, head of the undercover journalist group Project Veritas, has done it again, this time busting an employee of The New York Times for going around posing as former FBI chief James Comey’s “godson.”

This is a strange case, to say the least. But it appears that a former Democrat campaign operative who is now an editor for The New York Times video content the paper shares on social media has been parading around claiming he is Comey’s godson, Breitbart News reported.

Project Veritas released part one of its latest video with this bizarre tale of Times employee Nick Dudich and his wild claims.

Dudich seems to have made some incredible claims:

In the video, New York Times Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich claims to have worked on social media for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and to have worked on his 2012 re-election effort. He also says he was a volunteer media strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, making her videos more “heartfelt.” Now, he says in the video, “I will be ‘objective.’ No, I’m not. That’s why I’m there. Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, no I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.”

In the Project Veritas video, he is shown expressing his ideas for bringing President Trump down: “I’d target his businesses, his dumb f**k of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. … And you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down. … He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. … He would resign.”

But then came the really crazy stuff…

Bizarrely, Dudich then claims that former FBI director James Comey is his “godfather,” but it is not clear whether he meant that literally: “I’ve met him. He’s a great guy, actually. … [H]e’s my godfather. … My dad and mom knew him and his wife for a really long time.” Although Dudich is shown speaking to a Project Veritas reporter down the street from the Times‘ main New York office, it is not clear where this particular portion of the video, among others, was shot. Dudich then is shown admitting that according to Times policies, he should have recused himself from editing videos on Comey’s testimony before Congress, but did not — and that he could lose his job at the Times if anyone knew.

It got even weirder from there because Dudich also claimed he was employed as an undercover FBI informant sent in to ferret out the dangerous group known collectively as Antifa.

O’Keefe’s Project Veritas operatives then went to Dudich’s grandmother and father to ask them about these crazy claims. Naturally, neither family member could substantiate any of it.

They went back to Dudich and asked him why not even his family corroborated his wild claims, Then Dudich claimed he never said it at all!

This is part of the Project Veritas series of exposes on the media.

On the Veritas website, the story is posted with the following bullet points, to sum up the video:

  • American Pravda, NYT: Slanting the News and a Bizarre Comey Connection
  • Nick Dudich, Audience Strategy Editor for NYT Video, Says the Times Slants Anti-Trump News to the Front Page, “Oh, we always do.”
  • Claims to Be “Gatekeeper” for New York Times Videos: “My imprint is on every video we do.”
  • Worked for Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama Campaigns
  • Admits He Won’t Be Objective, “That’s why I’m here [at the NYT].”
  • NYT Ethical Handbook: “Journalists… must do nothing that might raise questions about their professional neutrality or that of The Times.”
  • Says Former FBI Director James Comey Is His Godfather, “I should have recused myself”
  • Dudich’s Family Members Deny Comey Claim
  • Continuation of American Pravda Series Which Began With CNN Videos

Yep, this one is truly bizarre.
