‘Resistance’ Hero Brian Krassenstein Admits to Being Paid for Hijacking Trump’s Twitter Feed in Secret Recording
UPDATE: Brian Krassenstein, one of the notorious fraudster Krassenstein brothers, claims he created a fake video in which he follows up by saying that hes joking. While the reason he allowed this story to spread all day without clarifying earlier is unknown — many are speculating he leaked it himself as a publicity stunt.
An anonymous email account had attempted to leak the video to a Daily Beast reporter who had been critical of the brothers last week, according to a screenshot provided to The Gateway Pundit by Currie Dobson.
Dobston explained that he found the video on the anonymous messageboard 4chan.
In a secret recording published by Los Angeles-based political activist Currie Dobson, “Resistance” hero Brian Krassenstein admits to being paid for his excessive anti-Trump tweets.
The purpose of this is, he admits, is to spam the president’s feed and prevent positive commentary from being visible at the top when people scroll through the responses.
When asked if being a member of the “Resistance” is a job for him, Krassenstein begins by stating that he has several businesses and that it’s just what he enjoys spending his time doing. He quickly goes on to admit that he also happens to be paid for it.
“Of course we get paid,” Krassenstein admits, laughing. “Of course there’s higher ups paying us.”

Krassenstein is then asked if that’s why he does it, instead of just his “love of country.”
“I mean people pay us — they want us to help sow the division and to take over Trump’s Twitter feed. When [Trump] makes a post they want our tweets to be up there. They don’t want other people, like Trump supporters to be seen,” Krassenstein continues.
Brian Krassenstein and his brother Ed have cashed in hard with their anti-Trump rhetoric, amassing over a million Twitter followers between the duo.
In 2016, the Florida home of the Krassenstein brothers was raided for running online financial scams.
“According to prosecutors, the services the Krassensteins promoted on their websites duped thousands of ‘investors’ into funding Ponzi scheme-type scams and even resulted in some downloading a virus that emptied their accounts on an anonymous online-payment platform used by the Krassensteins themselves, before it was shut down as part of a major federal money-laundering investigation,” the Daily Beast reported in May.
