Ex-Rebel Contributor Makes Explosive Claims In YouTube Video
Caolan Robertson says founder Ezra Levant offered “hush money” to keep him from talking about Rebel fundraising efforts.

A former Rebel Media contributor is making explosive allegations against Ezra Levant and the way he operates the Canadian far-right outlet.

“So some of you might or might now know, but two weeks ago I actually left the Rebel Media,” Caolan Robertson says in a video posted to YouTube Thursday. “But what you definitely don’t know is that Ezra then flew to the UK to offer $20,000 to make sure that this very video would not get made.”
