"President Donald Trump donated to an agency with a history of trying to take down liberal organizations, an agency that is now accused of trying to dupe the Washington Post with a fake Roy Moore claim in an undercover operation.

"The newspaper found out that a woman was lying after contacting reporters with a false claim that she'd become pregnant after having sex with Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore when she was a teenage girl. She claimed he then took her to get an abortion.

"Reporters and researchers for The Post traced the woman back to Project Veritas, a controversial group known for its undercover "sting" operations that often target liberal ideals or groups. The organization has been behind controversial and edited videos that have targeted CNN and Planned Parenthood.

"The controversial group also has ties to the commander in chief.

"About a month before Trump announced his candidacy for president, his charity, the Trump Foundation, gave $10,000 to Project Veritas.
The March 2015 donation likely helped fund filmmaker and conservative activist James O'Keefe in creating a video claiming to show Hillary Clinton supporters were paid $1,500 to cause violence during Trump's rallies, which were often interrupted by protestors and fights. The video was released in October 2016.

"Trump mentioned the videos and its claims while debating Clinton, but never mentioned that he donated to the organization that made them. "They hired people. They paid them $1,500, and they're on tape saying be violent, cause fights, do bad things," Trump said, citing the video by O'Keefe.
The Post found the woman, who said her name was Jaime Phillips, had posted a GoFundMe fundraising page, asking for cash and flaunting that she had a new job where she'd work to "combat the lies and deceit of the liberal MSM (mainstream media)."

Jesus Christ. The Trump Foundation has literally never done anything other than bribe an elected official (Pam Bondi), create Fake news (see above), and do hundreds of other horrible things to help Trump.
