This latest Project Veritas “deep state” video features a Government Accountability Office (GAO) employee and self-proclaimed Communist actively engaged in potentially illegal political activity. Natarajan Subramanian is a government auditor for the GAO and a member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (Metro DC DSA).
Metro DC DSA is a socialist group that works to advance progressive issues in the Metropolitan DC area. Subramanian’s political activism may directly violate federal statutes as well as the “Yellow Book” rules which apply specifically to government auditors.
Subramanian says that Federal employees in executive branch agencies can deliberately work less efficiently in order to slow down the implementation of the President’s agenda:
“If you’re in [an] executive branch agency you can slow ball things to a degree, that it’s like ineffective, and maybe you get in trouble, or maybe you get fired or resign or whatever, but you slowed [Trump’s agenda] down for a certain period of time.”
In conversations with Subramanian this year, Project Veritas discovered that in addition to being a Federal employee he manages social media and communications for Metro DC DSA. Subramanian admits that he works on DSA projects while at his Federal job. He says, “Everything that I’m doing with DSA is stuff that I’m not supposed to be doing for work… it’s explicitly prohibited. If they find out I could get in trouble, basically.”
In June 2018, during Metro DC DSA’s highly publicized confrontation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen (see the picture above), Subramanian admitted he secretly spent the majority of his government workday “…doing social media” for Metro DC DSA:
“No one knows I spent six hours yesterday doing social media for DSA.”
While some of his coworkers at GAO know that he’s a member of Metro DC DSA, Subramanian claims his superiors are unaware, “Management does not know. You have to be strategic about things like this.”

Apparently, the GAO saw the video and posted this on Twitter
