Project Veritas, founded by James O’Keefe, is renowned for going undercover with a video camera and secretly taping conversations with those primarily on the political left. Veritas typically uses individuals who feign an interest in the individual or organization to gain access.
In their most recent video, Project Veritas used a journalist who allegedly was interested in joining an Antifa cell in Portland called Rose City Antifa.
Many allege Antifa is a radical-left organization that is infiltrating peaceful George Floyd demonstrations to incite rioting across the US.

The Blaze reports:
The process included an interview and a series of secret lectures at a local bookstore before opening hours, where recruits would be taught the tactics of the trade, the undercover reporter said.
“If you ruin their day, if you like heckle them … make them feel like they look ridiculous, make them feel outnumbered, and therefore, their whole ‘yay yay America Trump’ thing is gonna go by the wayside,” alleged Rose City Antifa lecturer Adam Rothstein said during one secretly recorded session.
“The whole goal of this, right, is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible,” another lecturer identified as “Ashes” said….
The undercover journalist noted that RCA “[does] not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence,” adding that “in our classes and in our meetings … we talk about weapons detail and what we carry.”
