The FBI has reached out to an election integrity researcher for evidence of crimes in the 2020 election, said the researcher, who is also a former Trump campaign official.
The evidence was collected by the Voter Integrity Project (VIP) led by Matt Braynard, former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign.
“The @FBI has proactively and directly requested from me the VIP findings that indicates illegal ballots,” Braynard said in a Nov. 29 tweet.
“By Tuesday, we will have delivered to the agency all of our data, including names, addresses, phone numbers, etc.”
His account was backed by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a conservative non-profit which says it retained Braynard to conduct the work.
“We’ve learned that Mr. Braynard was contacted by FBI Special Agent Young Oh of the FBI Los Angeles Field Office seeking our data. Mr. Braynard is fully cooperating with this request and we fully support him,” said a statement posted by the project’s director, former Kansas Attorney General Phillip Kline, on Twitter on Nov. 29.
- While there has been legit criticism of the actions of leaders of the agency over the last several years, I can personally attest to the many patriots within the rank-and-file who are fighting on the side of the Constitution and Law and Order.
