Pennsylvania Postal Worker Whistleblower Reveals Postmaster’s Illegal Order to Back-Date Ballots and Federal Agent Tries to “Scare” Him

Pennsylvania US Postal worker turned whistleblower, Youtube
Erie, Pennsylvania: US Postal Service (USPS) worker Richard Hopkins became a whistleblower when he overheard a conversation in which Robert Wisenbach, the Erie Postmaster, advised another postal worker to backdate ballots on November 4th to appear as though they were received on November 3rd, which was Election Day, so that the ballots could be added to the vote count.

After whistleblower Richard Hopkins signed an affidavit affirming his statements, he met with a federal agent, Russell Strasser, who said, “I am not scaring you. But I am scaring you.” Hopkins recorded the conversation. Yesterday, the mainstream media reported that Mr. Hopkins recanted his story, but he denies recanting his statements (watch the third video below).

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said, “Every single vote that was sent by mail should be subject to investigation. It is clear that the USPS cannot be trusted.”

After Richard Hopkins’ video was published, he was visited by a federal agent and recorded the conversation:

Strasser: And so let me, let me make good on that promise right away. Okay. this storm is getting crazy, right? It’s out of a lot of people’s control. And so the reason they called me in is to try to harness that storm, try to reel it back in before it gets really crazy. Because we have Senators involved. We have the Department of Justice involved. We have–

Hopkins: Trump’s lawyer’s team’s gotten a hold of me.

Strasser: I’m not – I am actually, I am trying to twist you a little bit, because in that, your mind will kick in. We like to control our mind. And when we do that, we can convince ourselves of a memory. But when you’re under a little bit of stress, which is what I’m doing to you purposefully, your mind can be a little bit clearer. And we’re going to do a different exercise too, to make your mind a little bit clearer. So. But this is all on purpose.

Hopkins: Roger.

Strasser: I am not scaring you. But I am scaring you.

From Epoch Times:

A U.S. Postal Service (USPS) whistleblower in Erie, Pennsylvania, who last week claimed that he overheard superiors discussing a scheme to backdate mail-in ballots, has released a video dismissing reports that he fabricated the allegations.

On Nov. 7, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) received a sworn affidavit signed by mail carrier Richard Hopkins under the penalty of perjury, alleging that a local postmaster, Rob Weisenbach, had instructed USPS workers to collect mail ballots they receive after Nov. 3 and hand them over to him to be backdated.

Hopkins, 32, who has since been placed on non-pay status by the Erie Post Office, said that he is willing to testify about his claim under oath. He claimed that he heard Weisenbach tell a supervisor that he was backdating ballots “to make it appear as though the ballots had been collected on November 3, 2020, despite them in fact being collected on November 4 and possibly later.”

Under state election rules, ballots can be counted up to three days after Election Day as long as they are postmarked as having been sent on Nov. 3.

A USPS spokesman told The Epoch Times it was aware of Hopkins’s claim and had referred the matter to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Office of Inspector General.

Weisenbach did not respond to a request for comment.

The House Oversight Committee on Tuesday claimed that Hopkins went back on his allegations of ballot tampering, saying that investigators from the USPS Office of Inspector General had told the committee that the whistleblower had signed a sworn affidavit recanting his claims.

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,” Democrats on the panel said in a statement on Twitter.

The Washington Post published a report echoing similar claims, citing three anonymous officials briefed on the investigation, and the statement.

Hopkins soon denied the allegations in a video posted by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, a watchdog who first publicized Hopkins’s accusations.
