President Donald Trump on Monday reacted to the latest Project Veritas investigation exposing an alleged ballot harvesting racket in Minneapolis.

“This is totally illegal,” Trump wrote, sharing a Breitbart News article of the investigation on Twitter. “Hope that the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has this, and other of her many misdeeds, under serious review??? If not, why not???”

The U.S. attorney for Minnesota is Erica MacDonald, nominated by Trump on April 10, 2018, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on May 24, 2018.

The Project Veritas video reveals an operative connected to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) bragging on Instagram of all the ballots he acquired.

“Numbers do not lie. Numbers do not lie. … You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these; my car is full,” Liban Mohamed can be heard saying in the video.

James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, also reveals organizers in three locations in Ward 6 of Minneapolis work to acquire ballots from senior citizens and others and submit them in an election.
