Republican Party Chairman Yates’ $10,000 “Hoax.”


Recent court filings reveal that the attorney Republican Party Chairman Yates hired charged over $10,000 in attorney’s fees and costs defending what Chairman Yates called a “hoax.” The attorney for Yates charged over $10,000 to prevent Yates from testifying about what Yates has said was a “hoax” that he was perpetrating on the Chairman for the Bonneville County Central Committee. In an April 15, 2016, article published in the Idaho Statesman, Yates was asked about his secretly recorded interview with the Republican Party Bonneville County Chairman. Yates reportedly “said he knew about the Prosperity Project as a hoax, but he declined to comment on how he learned of the hoax. I wanted him [the Republican Party Bonneville County Chairman] to believe that this is real.” In another interview on April 15, 2016, with Idaho Falls Local News 8, Yates said that if someone is coming after him, he is not necessarily under any obligation to “respond with the truth” but is free “to give them a head fake.” Really Chairman Yates—you think lying is acceptable as long as you lie about someone you think is coming after you? Wow! Well, if Chairman Yates thinks lying is acceptable, then just maybe he’s lying about the “hoax” too because just maybe Chairman Yates is involved in the “Secret Society” up to his eyeballs. This certainly would explain why he and others would incur over $10,000 in attorney’s fees and costs not to testify under oath about their involvement in the “Secret Society.” The only other reason to incur over $10,000 in attorney’s fees and costs is if the bill is being passed onto the Idaho Republican Party. Someone should ask Chairman Yates if that is the case. But be careful, his answer might just be another “head fake.”
