Attorney for Planned Parenthood admits to collusion in undercover video scandal

Attorney for Planned Parenthood admits to collusion in undercover video scandal
A grand jury has cleared Planned Parenthood of fetal tissue trafficking and has announced indictments for the leaders of The Center For Medical Progress.

(TRUNEWS) An attorney for Planned Parenthood, Josh Schaffer has admitted to pressuring the Harris County District Attorney’s office in Texas into investigating the journalists who took the undercover videos of the abortion provider negotiating the sale of baby body parts, according to Lifesitenews.

Pro-lifers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt from the Center for Medical Progress were charged with a felony for tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count of purchasing human organs, as reported by TRUNEWS.

Schaffer also said Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell was able to get around State Attorney Ken Paxton’s directive not to share the video evidence with Planned Parenthood.

Lifesitenews reports Schaeffer immediately tried to obtain the videos, as he admitted in an affidavit.

“As soon as I made contact with HCDAO prosecutors in August of 2015, I began requesting the unedited video footage. Sunni Mitchell, the prosecutor who was leading the HCDAO investigation, said that she was not opposed to giving me that footage. However, she said that the HCDAO did not have any video footage other than what was available on YouTube. I suggested that she request the unedited video footage from the Attorney General’s Office. In time, I learned that she obtained it from that Office. However, I was told that the Attorney General’s Office agreed to give it to the HCDAO on the condition that the HCDAO not give it to PPGC. Mitchell told me that she would try to obtain the footage by other means,” said Schaffer.

A board member for the Center for Medical Progress, Troy Newman called out Schaffer.
He argued that the indictments against Daleiden and Mitchell should be dropped.

“Schaffer essentially has admitted to collusion with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, then denied that collusion existed,” Newman said. "It is clear that they were working with Planned Parenthood all along to build a spurious criminal case against pro-life activists in order to protect Planned Parenthood from prosecution."

He argued that the indictments against Daleiden and Mitchell should be dropped.
