Watch the explosive video above:

The shocking video shows Tennessee Senate hopeful Phil Bredesen’s staff explaining the true motivation behind his alleged “support” for Brett Kavanaugh.

They admit “it’s a political move” and “this isn’t about anything” other than appealing to moderate voters in the state.

The transcript of Stewart’s comments in the video can be seen below:

Journalist: I was so confused because I just can’t believe that he would actually vote yes [to confirm Kavanaugh].

Will Stewart: He wouldn’t. But he’s saying he would.

Campaign worker Vikrum: Its politics.

Stewart: Which, I don’t know if it makes it worse or better. No, it makes it better, but it’s still

Journalist: But, still, I don’t understand what’s to gain by saying yes.

Stewart: Moderates

Campaign worker Chandler Burgess: Moderate Republicans. Possibly, I mean

Stewart: In their defense, at the doors yesterday there were people who said they’re voting for him.

Journalist: Because he said.

Stewart: Not many, but…

Journalist: That’s why I wish Phil would just say . . .

Stewart: I know.

Journalist: Me and Maria talked a little bit about it yesterday and it’s like I get it, but I don’t get it.

Stewart: I know.

Journalist: Is it because of, like, the voters?

Stewart: Yeah. Yeah, that’s it

Journalist: So, he’ll lose voters if he says yes [to not confirming Kavanaugh]?

Stewart: Oh, straight up, yeah.

Journalist: Are the people of Tennessee that ignorant?

Stewart: Yeah.

Journalist: Are they that dumb to want to put somebody like that in power?

Stewart: Yeah

Journalist: I know that Phil is very . . .

Stewart: Moderate?

Journalist: But I also know like I'd like to think in my little heart that he’s not a super fan of Trump, but . . .

Stewart: He’s not

Stewart: Between you and me, once Phil actually gets into the Senate, he’ll be a good Democrat. But, yeah

Stewart: And it’s also just the start of something big, you know?

Journalist: The Resistance.

Stewart: Yeah. Yeah. We don’t say that out of these walls. But here, of course, we talk about that. Cause it’s so funny. The message is, like, don’t talk about the blue wave.

We’re not running against Trump. All this sort of stuff. Even though that’s all why we are all here. We can’t put it out there.

Journalist: I can’t help but think that Phil is the same way though.

Stewart. Oh yeah. Oh, he hates Trump, like yeah.

He’s not going to be running for re-election. He can get in there and do the right thing.

Bredesen staffer: Did you hear about that?

Stewart: The Blue wave?

Staffer: Yeah, you can’t say that too often here.

Journalist: I don’t understand why, though?

Stewart: We’re allowed to say it, but it’s off message

Staffer: Yeah, the others?

Journalist: What others?

Stewart: Like, campaign-wide, it’s not our message. You can say it in here, but like on those calls and stuff, that’s not a message we want to be sending. Because we’re not running…

Drew: We would scare all the people who would vote for Phil Bredesen but not Chuck Schumer

Stewart: Yeah, exactly, because there’s a lot of people who are Republicans who are going to vote for him, but . . .

Journalist: So if they know he’s like… I don’t want to say that he’s aligned with Chuck Schumer, but they would be like he’s in cahoots.

Stewart: Yeah, exactly

Journalist: Then, they would be like, no-go.

Stewart: Yeah, and that’s how they’re messaging against us.

End of transcript

Will Stewart, the Tennessee Democratic Party employee who was captured on the video saying that Phil Bredesen lied when he said he would have voted “yes” to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, is still working in a position of authority at that Bredesen for Senate campaign office.

The Tennessee Star spoke with Stewart inside Bredesen’s West End campaign offices early Thursday afternoon.

Stewart admitted he was one of the people who appeared on the video but had nothing else to say.

“I’ve been instructed to give a ‘No comment’ to any and all questions,” Stewart told The Star.

The other campaign staff members featured in the video are identified as field organizer Maria Amalla and James Miller, whose role was listed as “voter protection.”

Publicly available records from the Federal Election Commission indicate that all three Bredesen campaign workers featured on the Video–Stewart, Miller, and Amalla–are paid staffers of the Tennessee Democratic Party, and are not “volunteers” or “unpaid interns.”

Brown made a statement on Thursday about the comments of the Bredesen campaign workers captured in the video, as NewsChannel 5 reported:

“Officials with Tennessee Victory 2018, a Democratic-run organization working with candidates statewide, say the people seen in the video have never worked for Bredesen and have no working knowledge of his campaign’s tactics or strategies.

“These were just interns, they were volunteers,” says Mark Brown with TN Victory 2018. . .

When asked further about the video, Mark Brown said, “This fake volunteer used secret video recording equipment to capture uninformed and speculative.” He added that the party was considering legal action against Project Veritas.”

Brown’s claims that “the people seen in the video. . .were just interns, they were volunteers” is contradicted by the Federal Election Commission records which show that all three of the individuals featured in the video–Will Stewart, James Miller, and Maria Amalla–are paid staffers employed by the Tennessee Democratic Party.

The GOP should use this article in their campaign materials. Any Republican, no matter how moderate, who votes for a Democrat is an idiot. They are liars and opportunists, plain and simple.

Jeff Allen No. 39367 2018-10-14 : 18:46

Sounds like a democrat true to the nature and spirit of their party! Power at any cost, even your life liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Two faced Jackals No. 39376 2018-10-14 : 19:27

Jo No. 39407 2018-10-15 : 04:35

On top of being liars, cheats and crooks the Democrats are just plain stupid. How many times are they going to be exposed by Project Veritas before they catch on.

Lol, what idiots.
