Stanford researchers say Project Veritas video of Omar was disinformation

Researchers at Stanford University have called a Project Veritas video, claiming that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign had collected ballots illegally in Minneapolis, part of a coordinated disinformation effort. They added it was released to coincide with the NYT investigation on Trump’s taxes. They also stated that Trump Jr’s Twitter activity suggested he may have been aware of the video in advance.

Adding some points couldn't include in the summary “It’s a great example of what a coordinated disinformation campaign looks like: pre-seeding the ground and then simultaneously hitting from a bunch of different accounts at once”, the team from Stanford said Researchers found that the claims made by the conservative activist on the Project Veritas video were unsubstantiated and made using unidentified sources. Project Veritas had been teasing the release of the video for several days and planned to release it on Monday but did a day earlier to coincide with the NYT report If it was something so serious, why wait days?
