Hillary donor: “Hillary wants to shut it down,” “get guns away from everyone in this country”
As LI readers are well-aware, we value and seek to protect the Second Amendment. A stance, it would seem, Team Hillary rejects. A Project Veritas release shows Russ Feingold stating that Hillary “might” issue executive orders on guns should she be elected next month.
Russ Feingold, the former Democratic senator from Wisconsin who is running again in an attempt to win back his old Senate seat, was recorded at a fundraiser saying that Hillary Clinton might issue an executive order on guns.
The video was captured by James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas at an Aug. 17, $2,700 per-head fundraiser held at the Palo-Alto, Calif., home of Democratic donors Amy Rao and Harry Plant. Palo-Alto is located 10 minutes away from Stanford University, where Feingold taught after leaving his position as a special envoy at the U.S. State Department.
Feingold can be heard in the video discussing what Hillary Clinton could do in relation to guns if she were to be elected president.
“If there’s still Republican control in Congress, and if Hillary is elected, is there anything she can do to uhh…,” a person asks Feingold within the video. “Well, there might be an executive order,” Feingold responds.
Feingold also seems to think that Obama’s executive orders didn’t go far enough because they dealt only with waiting periods.
The Washington Free Beacon continues:
“Oh, so she can, I know that Bara…” the questioner counters. Feingold then talks of President Obama’s executive orders throughout his two terms.
“He did some executive orders with the aspects of waiting periods. But what we all need is the Senate, have her there, and then put pressure on the House. And we might win the House,” Feingold says.
That wasn’t all Project Veritas uncovered, however.
Silicon Valley multi-millionaire Amy Rao hosts the event for Russ Feingold. Amy unknowingly discloses Hillary’s secret view on guns. She claims Hillary would do what Obama couldn’t on private gun ownership.
“Hillary wants to shut it down” says Amy, “If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close the loopholes, get rid of assault weapons, she will get rid of being able to buy you know, unlimited bullets, she’s gonna make all that stop.” [emphasis in original]
“Get guns away from everyone in the country”?
That’s a game-changer.DONATE
